5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Greatest Debut Albums Ever, May 12, 2001
This review is from: High Voltage (Audio CD)
High Voltage is an amazing album, in my opinion it captures AC/DC at their all time best, now don't get me wrong I'm a huge fan and seriously like every album but for some reason none of them can even compare to this one. Every song is classic, Angus Young's playing is top notch, the rhythm section of Phil Rudd and Mark Evans is incredibly solid, Malcolm Young also proves that he's the most underrated rhythm guitar player of all time, and what can be said about legendary frontman Bonn Scott, his whiskey drenched voice fits the blues based rock very well. The production on the album is also great courtesy of George Young, older brother of Angus and Malcolm. The album kicks off with one of AC/DC's finest songs ever, It's A Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll. Everything about it is perfect, great solid rhythm and great guitar playing by both of the Young brothers. Rock 'n' Roll Singer is another really cool song, not very different than anything AC/DC's done, but great none the less. The next song is The Jack, this is to this day an in concert favorite, AC/DC's blues influences shine on this one. Live Wire is not anything that you wouldn't expect from AC/DC, great rhythm, top notch guitar playing, and excellent singing. The next song is probably AC/DC's best ever, T.N.T. This is also an in concert favorite, and it's extremely well written. Can I Sit Next to You Girl is another rocker it's then followed by Little Lover which is another blues based song similar to The Jack. She's Got Balls is a classic, the music is awesome and just the song in general is fantastic. Angus is great and Phil Rudd's drums compliment the song, the best part about him is that he doesn't overplay. The album closes with the title track, High Voltage. This song is also amazing, the best part about AC/DC is that even though their songs sound similar they are all really good. So that's it folks the end of one of the greatest albums of all time, only nine songs but not one bad one, this is a must have for any music fan.
