This album sticks out in their catalog because the recording differences. This album always sounded more live than studio to me, and I can dig it. Not their strongest album start to finish but a must have (like all their others).
Bottom of the pile
Mean streak and Ruff Stuff earn the 2 stars . Only an album for hard core fans but probably their worst studio effort
Best post Lange 80s album and most underrated
By Angry Batman
Bringing back their old producers from the 70s helped bring out great tracks that want to make you rock. It's a shame that people refer to the 80s as AC/DCs lowest but this was just a prelude to what would become the razors edge
One of there best
Insanely underrated! Heatseeker is one of the best songs they made and is hardcore all the way! ROCK ON! 🎸
The Greatest AC/DC Album, Period.
By La Bomba1970
I had been an AC/DC fan for 10 years when this album was released. At first listen, it blew me away. This was a leap forward for the band. Everything that made AC/DC great was here in abundance, but with more complex hooks, deeply layered guitar work, and a sound that was at once familiar and brand new. 25 years later, I am still listening to this album start to finish on a regular basis, and I am still pumped by it every time.
Great Rock & Roll album
The rhythm guitar in these songs are some of Malcolm Youngs best, most notably in Ruff Stuff.
blow up your vidieo
most underated AC/DC album!!!
Probably the last one to buy
If you like AC/DC, you'll like this album, but it may take a few listens. There are good songs here, ("Heatseeker", "That's the Way I Wanna Rock & Roll", "This Means War"), but they are mostly sunk by flat and uninspired production. The drums sound hollow, the guitars are muted, and Brian Johnson sounds like he was recorded through a wall. In fact, the whole album sounds that way. A real shame, too, because some of the music arrangements really deserved better.
MOST UNDERRATED ALBUM EVER
By Da Boss99
For some reason these great tracks are left in the dust, while Back in Black and Whole Lot of Rosie get all the fame. This album has song on par, if not better than those songs. "Heatseeker" is the prime example of some of AC/DC's most cleverly written inuendos. "That's the way I wanna Rock 'N' Roll" has one of the best riffs in the bands career. "This Means War" has some of AC/DC's funnest lyrics. And "Ruff Stuff" is just plain awesome. everyone says "Flick of the Switch" is the most underrated album. I say this is. 5 out 5
Angus With Long Hair & His SG Through A TV!!!
Gotta love this one too! Great songs on here and for sure another hit single with "Heatseeker". I think it was around this time when people realized this band just won't go away. Crank it Up!!!
