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? well maybe, I’m not sure if this is better then Back On Black or not, I’m kinda on the fence. Bon Scott’s vocals sounded the best on this album. Some people will say High Voltage or Highway To Hell but trust me on this, Let There Be Rock has the greatest vocals that man ever recorded. And being in good classic AC/DC fashion the rythem section is tighter then any other bands. Oh, and lets not for get about the guitar duo of Malcome and Angus. This has the best guitar that the boys ever recorded, trust me if you ask any guitar player what the best AC/DC album is they will say….Let There Be Rock.
The album opens up with ‘Go Down’ which after reading the reviews by other people I found that people were only giving it a 7 out of 10 but that so not true. You see this is one of the better songs on the album. The guitar riff is heavy and bluesy, it has a great groove and Bons vocal delivery are top notch, and the lyrics are great by any rock standards, this is a killer track. ‘Dog Eat Dog’ is next. Killer song. Classic AC/DC guitar licks, awesome solo and just a real bada** song to rock out to, easily one of the best songs on the album! Next is the title track, ‘Let There Be Rock’ and I mean what can you say about this song, other then its just damn amazing! The lyrics are so awesome that its not even funny and the way that the guitar and drums are almost insinc with each other is so awesome, this is straight up classic AC/DC! Let There Be Rock is probley 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 Bons voice, and oh man the guitar riffs on this song are not for the weak, wanna talk about a power house, well thats what Angus is one this one! Next is ‘Problem Child’ which is pretty hard and heavy but kinda repetitive, but other then that this song rocks hard! ‘Overdoese’ has such a killer guitar section. I dont even know what to say about this one 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 is! ‘Hell Aint A Bad Place To Be’ has cool riffs, a Cool beat, and pretty cool lyrics but its nothing way to special, but not bad by any means! The album closes with it’s best song, and maybe AC/DC’s all time best song, ‘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 ever, and the solo is the all time greatest 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 found out all the other songs were great as well.
To rap things up this is a power house of an album, not a weak track present on this one. The guitar playing is not to be matched and the vocals are so over the top that every thing just meshes together perfectly! Do your self a really really really big favor and pick up Let There Be Rock today!
