Info for Let There Be Rock (Remastered)



This album came screaming out of Australia in 1977! AC/DC's first stab at a "real" album - a break from the early "novelty" approach to songwriting and a move to the more focused album-oriented view that the band would perfect. Includes the classics Let There Be Rock; Bad Boy Boogie; Whole Lotta Rosie , and more!

Immediately after hearing the title of the record, you know what you're in for, and AC/DC do not disappoint. Let There Be Rock is a treat for your ears, it has eight consistent tracks, all of which are great rockers that you would expect from AC/DC.

Let There Be Rock, the fourth AC/DC album - and first to see simultaneous international release - is as lean and mean as the original line-up ever got. Shaved down to the bone, there are only eight tracks, giving this a lethal efficiency even with a couple of meandering jams. This is a high-voltage, brutal record, filled with "Bad Boy Boogie."

It has a bit of a bluesier edge than other AC/DC Albums, but this is truly the sound of the band reaching its peak. There's the near majesty of "Let There Be Rock", there's Bon Scott acknowledging with a wink that "Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be", and then there's the monumental "Whole Lotta Rosie".

Let There Be Rock is pure AC/DC in a nutshell - it's sweaty, dirty, nasty rock, music that is played to the last call and beyond, and they've rarely done that kind of rock better than they did here.

"Let There Be Rock, the fourth AC/DC album -- and first to see simultaneous international release -- is as lean and mean as the original lineup ever got.

There's the near majesty of "Let There Be Rock," there's Bon Scott acknowledging with a wink that "Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be," and then there's the monumental "Whole Lotta Rosie." Which gets down to a key thing about AC/DC. If Led Zeppelin were celebrating a "Whole Lotta Love," AC/DC got down to the grimy details in their leering tribute to the joys of sex with a plus-sized woman. And that's AC/DC's allure in a nutshell -- it's sweaty, dirty, nasty rock, music that is played to the last call and beyond, and they've rarely done that kind of rock better than they did here."
