AC/DC – For Those About to Rock We Salute You Reviews

For Those About to Rock We Salute You

Lesser bands might have been put off their stride by the death of their lead singer, but not AC/DC. No sooner had Bon Scott met his whiskey-sodden end in 1980 than AC/DC recruited a new singer, Brian Johnson–who sounded almost exactly like Scott–and released, in Back in Black, the biggest-selling album of their career. For Those About to Rock…We Salute You is a suitably triumphant follow-up. The cannon-punctuated title track–the most auspicious marriage of music and artillery (more…)

    This review is from: For Those About to Rock We salute You (Audio CD) If you find this version of “For on the rocks,” You're in good company, because the brown gold cover is identical to the copy on vinyl that I own, which means that the first pressing. Back in Black, AC / DC raised the bar so high that no one could top it, not even themselves. The only way you will not be as For Those About to Rock, if you compare it with Back in Black, which is understandable, but for me personally I enjoy the album to the same extent as Back In Black. The title track was inspired by one of the award “for the dying, we salute you” and the band just a word. The song sounds with guns who are working for a big finale. It is a concert staple, and rightly so, but there is much more remarkable melodies, among them are the verse riff tandem of “Injecting the poison,” the relentless rocking chair from “Snowballed,” “Night of the long knife “had a Back in Black-style groove,” Breaking the Rules “is an anthemic, semi-track bouncing. I recommend “for the Rock” from the bottom of my heart.

    This review is from: For Those About to Rock We salute You (Audio CD) Of course, the 1980 the record “Back in Black” would be very difficult, whether you think that the adoption by the sale or by the quality. But leave it to AC / DC, to discuss the tradition of classic rock-n-rollers, in 1981 with “For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)”. Here is the band all the investigated area with their anticipated epic rock anthems (the classic title track) and the predictable wine, women, music and vocals ( “Let's Get It Up,” “Put the Finger on You” ). But in a stunning yet well-balanced manner, AC / DC brings listeners into a world on the streets, the elements of frustration (the excellent “Spellbound”), distrust (superbly crafted “night of long knives”) and rebellion ( ” ; Breaking the Rules “). “COD” is classic AC / DC all the way, while the great rocker “Evil Walks” and “Snowballed” seem at odds with the classic quintet of the subject. Lead singer Brian Johnson's poetry and bellows give the album its broad sense, while the guitars of Angus and Malcolm Young lead the rhythm of Cliff Williams and Phil Rudd. Remastered here in his form, “For Those About to Rock” is one of AC / DC 's peak performance.

    This review is from: For Those About to Rock We salute You (Audio CD) I think that the main reason that this album did not see, like a big AC / DC album is because people will not stop comparison to Back In Black. Yes, Back In Black is one of the best rock albums ever. Yes, Back In Black is far from AC / DC 's best album of all time. BUT …. what you need to realize is that every album AIN T GONNA BE BACK IN BLACK! If a band has an extremely successful album like Back In Black, there's always a enormus amount of pressure to meet the follow-up album as good or better. And most always, it is not. With this album, but I think that the band together a solid ten course Rock N Roll Fest. The title song is one of the best, the cannons Article! Also Snowballed, COD and evil walks are good songs. Also, if you give this album deserves a fair chance, and they listen to, without expecting Back In Black, you like it, I promise!

    Another Pure Hard Rock Album From AC/DC
    This studio collection was recorded in France during 1981 and released on the same year. It became their first #1 album in the US.

    Nostalgic album cover is true to the music inside.
    The copper colored album cover is just as outstanding as it was many years ago when on vinyl. Music is great to recapture again from these brash Australians.

    The enormous success of ‘Back in Black’ demanded a follow up full of equally momentous hard rock anthems, so AC/DC along with Mutt Lange (for one last time) tried to recreate the…
