5.0 out of 5 stars AC/DC at their best - a must for Metal lovers!!! September 15, 1998
Format:Audio CD
Released in Australia in 1977, this is for sure the best album the guys from downunder ever did! From Rhythm'n Blues ballads (Crabsody in blue - my alltime favourite song, why was it actually left out on the international release????) to good 'ole Rock'n'Roll classics (Whole lotta Rosie) - what a mix. And "Hell ain't a bad place to be" ... Bon, we miss you buddy!
The titles: *** Go down * Dog eat dog * Let there be Rock * Bad boy Boogie * Overdose * Crabsody in blue * Hell ain't a bad place to be * Whole lotta Rosie ***

5.0 out of 5 stars You could say she's got it all.... November 22, 2006
By Mark H.
Format:Audio CD
In 1977, AC/DC cranked it up to eleven and released their 4th album (in Australia), 'Let There Be Rock'. Very few hard rock albums before the late seventies had such a loud, raspy and metallic sound. The Young brothers created arguably their most amazing guitar reoord and it is still my favorite AC/DC disc and one of my alltime favorites period. Their earlier albums only hinted at the titanic volume and distortion of 'LTBR' and Angus played his most inspired and energetic leads. Every song is noteworthy and like 'TNT' many are not only AC/DC but also heavy metal classics. The title track is an amazing homage to the origins of rock and a tribute to men like Chuck Berry. The song simply oozes myth and riffology. "Whole Lotta Rosie" is in my opinion their greatest song (tied with "Highway to Hell") and as Bon says....she's got it all! Amazing rhythm section, fun, outrageous lyrics (about a real Tasmanian devil er...groupie supposedly!) and the most amazing lead guitar by Angus of course who rips off not one but two incredible lead breaks, including the one that closes the song in a maelstrom of metal anarchy! "Go Down" is an amazingly heavy blues that is aside from the volume and distortion a very pure blues, much better than "Ride On". Sex seethes through this record as Bon belts out his claims to sexual prowess ("Bad Boy Boogie", the original "moon" song), dealing with an S&M relationship ("Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be"), VD again ("Crabsody in Blue", let off the world wide release for "Problem Child", again a repeat!) and the pains of unrequited love ("Overdose", again with Angus on a roll come solo time!!!!). "Dog Eat Dog" champions the common man and the frustrated rocker. Every cut is a slegdehammer to the head and has an insane groove! Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars AC/DC at their bluesy-rock best May 28, 2000
Format:Audio CD
If you are an AC/DC/Bon Scott fan you MUST own this album. All the essential elements are here: Bon Scott's screechy, bluesy howl and Angus Young's screaming Gibson. Backed by a tight rhythm section including Angus' brother and partner in crime Malcom, the band is at it's best on classics like "Whole Lotta Rosie", and the title track. No slight on Brian Johnson, but this is AC/DC at it's best! With Johnson, AC/DC have created some great music, but you can't replace a legend.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Original Track Listing July 8, 2014
Format:Audio CD
This Australian version of the album contains the original and correct track list, it also has the original album design, which in its original vinyl format was a gatefold sleeve. When it was also released in the UK in 1977, they change the cover to the one we are all familiar with, the group on the front, but kept this track listing. Now when they released this album in the US in 1977 they used the UK album design, but because no other ACDC album had been released in the US they took Crabsody In Blue off and put Problem Child on from their previous album Dirty Deeds. This has never been corrected, so when CDs came into existence and all the ACDC albums are easily available and you buy both Dirty Deeds and Let There Be Rock you have two versions of Problem Child, even the UK cd release of Let There Rock has Problem Child on it as opposed to the UK vinyl release which had the Crabsody In Blue.
So to avoid this dilemma its best to buy this Australian version, which I think has the more cool original cover.
