Got a few songs in for my first listen on way to work today. I love the guitar sounds and the playing is great and yes it is boogie-woogie. It all sounds quite quaint, but it's good fun.
For anyone else like me who is clueless on AC/DC, that Aussie Rock doc (posted by johnnystress) is a must watch.
Not my favourite ACDC album. As others have said, Powerage is better and I'd prefer Highway To Hell too. It's a bit of a game of two halves as well. I think the first two songs are rubbish (too close to bog standard blues rock) and next two not that much better. However, Problem Child, Overdose and Hell Ain't are all amazing (don't have the version with Crabsody). Quintessential ACDC. Whole Lotta Rosie is a song I never, ever need to hear ever again.
I know it is. I agree with Hugh though, Let there Be Rock would probably the fourth best AC/DC record for me. Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be is one of my favourite AC/DC songs but Go Down and Bad Boy Boogie are throwaways. A Whole Lot of Rosie is also a song I never need to hear again ever.
PS - what's so good about Crabsody in Blue? Another sub-par blues number to be fair.
Yeah I'm the same, it's a bit meh. It's kind of a fun listen though, the whole "bad boy boogie" thing is quite funny.
I was subjected to Whole Lotta Rosie countless lunch times at mates houses back in school, so I really don't need to hear that again.
I never need to hear the Live version of Rosie again. But I enjoy this studio version whenever I hear it. The closing solo is amazing and the whole thing is much more ferocious. It's so powerful that it takes me out of moment and I forget I'm hearing Whole Lotta Rosie, the intro seems hours away.
