My favourite AC/DC album.,
This review is from: Highway to Hell (Audio CD)
Guilty pleasures aplenty populate this hard-rock classic, the last AC/DC album featuring Bon Scott. And here the band is at its peak on all fronts -- catchy songwriting, insatiable riffing, deep-grooved and confident, Bon Scott singing better than ever, a marriage between raspy-throated goblin and starry-eyed sex symbol. The first four songs of the album swing like mad -- the classic title track, featuring one of the most famous guitar riffs in rock; the sexy grind of "Girls Got Rhythm"; Scott's soaring growl on "Walk All Over You"; the libidinous interplay of racy lyrics and chiming guitars on "Touch Too Much". And "Beating around the Bush" sends those famous Young fingers a-flying with one of AC/DC's speediest, most jittery riffs. It all boils down to a damned catchy pot of hard-rock classics, purely enjoyable, once and for all beating past my inhibitions about this band's juvenile lyrics and sexism. It's just too much of a good time to miss.

On one hand u have middle age men who has for whatever reason got to have their music as hard has hell then turn around and say lyrics are too juvenile ! Hard as Hell music is for teen boys ! Their lyrics are in their songs which are about their lives and to cry about any band having juvenile lyrics is ignorant at best ! U want grown lyrics go to classical music ! In case u dont get it ill paint a pic for u ! Metal and hard rock music is aimed at the youth kuz thats were the money is and so called adult lyrics in adult songs dont sell worth a damn !

Sexism ? That was the 70s when Highway to Hell came out ! Rap does that alot now and no liberals cry about that so give it a rest !!
