AC/DC – Let There Be Rock Reviews

Let There Be Rock

essential recording
AC/DC’s second U.S. release took the raw energy from their debut, High Voltage, up a notch, producing another huge collection of driving, intense songs for serious headbanging, but adding a bit more professionalism into the equation. The songwriting and production are tighter and more focused, and standouts such as “Whole Lotta Rosie,” “Problem Child,” “Let There Be Rock,” and “Bad Boy Boogie” almost have to fight with “filler” like “Go Down” and “Hell Ain’t a B (more…)

    AC/DC At Their Best
    You can’t get much better than this. I have listened to it over and over but never get tired of hearing it.

    In my humble opinion, this is by far, AC / DC 's best album. It is Rawer, faster, harder, nastier and more brutal than “High Voltage” or any other album by them, and I am sure that at the time, not too many thoughts, which was possible.
      1st Go Down-5 / 5 Excellent optimistic, very hard song with sexually charged lyrics. You can imagine, Bon Scott almost say these things to the women he would meet. This song has a driving beat that is not for rent.
      2nd Dog Eat Dog-5 / 5 Another big, heavy, optimistic song. The lyrics are one of Bon Scott's best, and actually something to say, in addition to his typical rock 'n' roll lyrics. One of the best.
      3rd Let There Be Rock-5 / 5 Another signature AC / DC song. The lyrics to this are the best ever for AC / DC. Although this song is long, it never helps, because you never beat the fast to slow. One of the best ever.
      4th Bad Boy Boogie-4 / 5 A little bluesy, with a bit dancy feel. One of the weaker songs, but still great.
      5th Problem Child 3 / 5 This is one of my favorite songs ever the least of AC / DC. I hope that “Crabsody In Blue” would have been on here instead, since it is based on the Australian version. It's just a little too long and a little boring.
      6th Overdose-4 / 5 Heavy riffs with an excellent vocal delivery of Bon Scott. Hard rockers go, if a bit too long.
      7th Hell Is not A Bad Place To Be 5 / 5 Another fantastic heavy rocker. Hard and full of attitude. One of the best on the album.
      8th Whole Lotta Rosie 5 / 5 My personal favorite AC / DC song ever. This song is fast and furious, nasty and sexy, driving and relentless. This is AC / DC 's guitar riff and the best Bon Scott's best vocal delivery. Absolutely perfect!
      This is the most angry, raw and heavy album, AC / DC ever created. The songs definitely live up to the big titles. I think this is one of the greatest rock albums ever, if you are an AC / DC fan or not.

    On the eight day…
    AC/DC were a band that got better and better as the albums kept coming, and by “Let There Be Rock,” they were in their prime.

    This review is from: Let There Be Rock (Audio CD ) When we returned to the original characteristics and importance of rock 'n' Roll, AC / DC once again on this album that they were and are still the best “pure” rock band in the world.They know how to get back to the roots of rock better than anyone else out there. The title song of this album it symbolizes the ability to view this energy. Simply put, it's not more powerful than these guys doing their thing. Starting with “Go Down”, every song on the album moves at a different stage, culminating in the astonishing “Whole Lotta Rosie.” If you want a great listening experience, but also that you will play air guitar or screaming at the top of the lung, that is on your hands.

    AC / DC 's best album with Bon Scott, what is it? Thats Right, Let There Be Rock! AC / DC 's best album of all time? and perhaps, I am not sure whether this is better than Back On Black or not, I'm somehow on the fence. Bon Scott's voice sounded the best on this album. Some people will say, or high-Highway To Hell, but believe me on this theme, Let There Be Rock has the largest voice, that man ever. And that in a good classic AC / DC mode of the rhythm is more than any other bands. Oh, and can not for himself on the guitar duo of Malcolm and Angus. This is the best guitar, that the guys ever, trust me, if you ask any guitarist, what is the best AC / DC album is that they say …. Let There Be Rock.
      The album opens with “Go Down”, after reading the reviews by other people I found that people were representing only 7 of 10, however, so not true. You see, this is one of the better songs on the album. The guitar riff is very heavy and bluesy, it has a great groove and vocal delivery are first-Bons, and the texts are accompanied by a large rock standards, this is a killer track. “Dog Eat Dog” is “Next.” Killer song. Classic AC / DC guitar licks, awesome solo, and only a real Bada ** rock song, just one of the best songs on the album! Next is the title track, “Let There Be Rock” and I mean, what can we say about this song, other then its just damn amazing! The lyrics are so great that it also not funny and the way that the guitar and drums are almost insinc each other is so great, that's just classic AC / DC! Let There Be Rock probley is the second best song on the album. “Bad Boy Googie” oh man what a killer chorus! The lyrics are so powerful, they are perfect for Bon's voice and oh man the guitar riffs on this song is not for the weak, want to become a power plant, and that is what Angus is this one! Next is “Problem Child”, which is fairly hard and heavy, but somehow repeatedly, but other that this song rocks hard! “Overdoese” has such a killer guitar part. I dont even know what to say because I love it so much. I take it back Let There Be Rock is not the second best song on the album this little baby! “Hell Is not A Bad Place To Be” is cool riffs, a cool beat, and pretty cool, but its nothing to specific texts, but not bad and is by any means! The album closes with the best song, and maybe AC / DC 's best song of all time, “Whole Lotta Rosie” I love this song to death! It's damn amazing. The guitar riff is easily one of the 5 greatest guitar riffs of all time, and the solo is the greatest ever guitar solo Angus Young has ever played! The lyrics are so cool and so powerful, I swear I bought this album just for this song and then I noticed all the other songs were great as well.
      To do these things rap is a power house of an album, not a weak track on this one. The guitar is not matched and the vocals are in the top, that every thing just meshes together! Do you have a really really really big favor and pick up Let There Be Rock today!

    this is the time when Bon Scott stood at the mic
    this album almost makes you wish that Bon Scott was still on the mic. standout tracks on this album are “Let There Be Rock”, “Problem Child” and “Whole Lotta Rosie”.

    Over rated!!! Not even close to a classic! It’s not bad though!
    The opening track “Go Down” is one of AC/DC’s worst songs. This album isn’t a classic. Powerage beats this, Black Ice as well. I really don’t care for this album…

    Best Album Ever
    Every single song in this album taps the deepest vein of raunchy, fun, dirty, low-down, bad-boy blues.

    Let There Be Rock
    AC/DC’s 1977 release, “Let There Be Rock”, is one of the best AC/DC albums they’ve ever made for one reason, Its good high voltage rock n roll with no stopping and non stop…

    Keep On Rockin
    Very few have the hard hit that these guys produce. Excellent riffs, hard hittin drum beats, Bon Scott was a real power house without a doubt.
