AC/DC – For Those About To Rock (Group Post)

For more awesome posts about the 35th (!) anniversary of this release, check out BOPPIN and DEKE!

This is a re-post for me. Turns out, I covered it back on March 17, 2014!

READ IT RIGHT HERE!

I’d received this disc as a gift from our Heavy Metal Overlord. WHAT A GIFT!

Listening back to it for this post, I found I agreed with my past self, so there ain’t a whole lot extra to add. I ain’t cheaping out on the post word count, I’m too busy rocking!

For Those About To Rock (We Salute You), indeed!

  1. In my opinion, the last great AC/DC record. ‘Flick of the Switch’ had its moments, but everything after that was pretty spotty/same-y. Hearing them play “For Those About To Rock” live was a monumental point in my teen-dom. Cannons blasting from both sides of the stage it was a visceral experience for me in November of 1991 at the Fort Wayne Coliseum.

  2. Full commitment to rocking with hands flashing horns therefore unable to type = more than valid reason for small word count!

  3. I’d give this one 6/10, never liked it much apart from the title track and Evil Walks. FotS and FotW were much better LPs than this one!

  4. I was wondering where my copy had gone haha. Was never that fussed about this one. Not a big AC/DC fan though, in fairness so what do I know?

  5. I’m not familiar with this, but I’ll give it a go.
