Highway to Hell is the sixth studio album by Australian hard rock band AC/DC, released on 27 July 1979. It was the last album featuring lead singer Bon Scott, who would die early the following year on 19 February 1980.Wikipedia
Popped the first song on out of respect for the project but as the second started I remembered that all AC/DC songs sound the same and are average at best.
Touch too much is ACDCs best song and I’ll fight anyone that says differently
unclear if the album would be better if it were just "Highway to Hell" 10 times. definitely prefer Back in Black over this one. 4/5
Other than the title song, the music’s rather mundane
Man, listen. When I was learning how to play guitar in high school, it was all classic rock for me, and I’ll never forget when we hooked up Dad’s turntable and I put this on for the first time. I instantly fell in love with this album. So many killer riffs, some great, memorable (and easy) lyrics. It’s pure rock, plain and simple. And there are even a couple songs on here to deflect the claim that every AC/DC song sounds the same (I’m thinking “Walk All Over You” and “Night Prowler”). Of course, a lot of it does sound the same, and if you don’t like that sound, this probably won’t work for you. But if you do, this is undeniably one of AC/DC’s best. The last album with Bon Scott, which was followed THE NEXT YEAR with Back in Black. Talk about a one-two punch. This is a certified classic for me, and one I just recently picked up on vinyl. I’m writing this review in bed before I even get up to listen to the album. I feel electrified. Favorite tracks: Every track really, but Highway to Hell, Night Prowler, Love Hungry Man, Touch Too Much, Beating Around the Bush. Album cover: Iconic. Stone cold classic. Bloody legendary. I have a poster of this stashed under my bed. Angus with the devil horns and tail to distract from the fact that Bon Scott is wearing a pentagram. Guy in the middle with the “fluoride stare.” Rock and roll is most certainly the devil’s music. Nobody talk to me. 5/5
AC/DC is like a delicious plain chocolate ice cream. Every bite is going to be basically the same, but you aren't gonna be all that mad about it.
Sure. Why not?
lol I almost shouldn't listen, I've heard this album a kazillion times. I'll admit I prefer their 80s stuff but this is my fav of the Bon era. A lot more oomph than the albums before it, and imo where sooo many 80s metal bands got their ideas... and Airbourne too haha. 5/5.
Classic album. Great send-off for Bon
We salute you back!
Epic :) Really a classic
I mean, it's Highway to Hell. It's good, classic rock. Enjoy it.
Classic, high energy, feel good
One of the best blues based rock albums ever made.
i shouldn't have to comment on this album. i've been regularly listening to it for 40 years. it's amazing.
it was ok. you're average AC/DC
this is a good album but i literally don’t care
Very solid rock. Should be played as loud as possible, the chien would say.
This thing kicks so much ass. Just a blood pumping, testosterone fest. A lot of the tracks sound the same, but I don’t even care. It is an adrenaline ride
Discazo. Aunque de cierto modo sucede algo como con Motörhead, en donde hay una fórmula que aplican a lo largo de toda su carrera, AC/DC tiene la ventaja de tener más variación dentro de esa misma fórmula y hacer algo como este disco, con canciones como Highway To Hell, perfectamente apegada a la estructura que siempre usan o Love Hungry Man que está bastante fuera del esquema y deja lucir al bajo con un ritmo que casi tiene funk. Más puntos por pensar que este es su sexto disco, pero en los 5 anteriores se pueden encontrar muchas joyas, y que los que le siguen (ya incluso con otro vocal) están también llenos de cosas buenas.
all time classic!!!!!<3
My friends are gonna be there too...
One of the top 10 greatest rock albums ever. Pure rock. No BS.
Their best album imo, Bon's best work and one the truly great rock albums of all time.
Sólo por la canción de Highway to Hell se merece un 5...
When you see this album cover, you should already know. These wild boys will rock your socks off whether that is on a hot summer day playing outside, jamming out with an air guitar, or watching any Iron Man movie. I think this might be my favorite of their albums but Back In Black might be there too. Either way, if you are looking for rock, roll, and blood, you've got it.
One of my top ten albums.
Great album and full of fun. I liked that every song was a rock out song, no slow bits at all
Its a great album. Fun, catchy pop rock
Eu gosto mais do Back In Black por pura nostalgia mas Highway to Hell eh gold tambem
Every song is killer.
Bon Scott’s last album. The end of an era the last AC/DC album that still felt a little bit raw before they came back with the monster that was Black in Black. Crunching riffs, great solos, childish innuendo, unforgettable choruses and a relentless rhythm section that makes you nod your head and stomp your feet. Rock and Roll perfection.
Banging album. Back to black is better though
Incredible rock n roll, first time listening to a full AC/DC album. Everything is awesome! Just wish the drums were crazier!!!
No complaints here. A cohesive album, didn't think there was a bad song, very much enjoyed
Power Chords? ✅. Awesome Guitar solos? ✅. Brian Johnson vocals? ✅ . If all 3 are correct, you have an AC/DC album, please rate high and move along.
Loved AC/DC as a kid, was more used to Brian Johnson but Jon Bon Scott is just as iconic for ACDC (always think it’s cool how similar singers they are) and I think it was his final album before he died. Can’t think of much to say… it’s ACDC. It rocks.
This is what you imagine when you think of Classic Australian Rock. Great Album. Shazbot Nanu Nanu.
Already knew this one. Great hard rock album.
Raspy, shows its age in a good way. tons of focus on the drums.
Vinte. As mãos e os pés enchem-se de choques, tarifa bihorária. MotA: Highway to Hell "Livin' easy, lovin' free"
I've always had it in my head that AC/DC basically just write the same song over and over again, but I ended up really enjoying the album from start to finish. Musical highlight of my weekend.
absolut brillianter Klassiker
Even though I prefer bon Scott as a singer, I think back in black was a better album
One of the absolute greatest.
Простой, лаконичный, дерзкий. И поэтому такой популярный. Направлялись по дороге в ад, а приехали к мировой славе. Классика на века.
Начинаем утро пятницы с эйсидиси)))
It's iconic. The final stand of the Bon Scott era of AC/DC and it was an amazing (If unintentional) way to send the man off. It start's with probably their most anthemic song and doesn't stop the amazing pace until the final refrains of Night Prowler. A personal highlight is the sudo deep cut of If You Want Blood
Great album, didn't know as many of the songs as I thought I would. Night prowler, shot down in flames, and, of course, the epic title track were the highlights. Funny to think that some people used to think that this was as heavy/fast/extreme/metal as music would ever become - if they only knew!
It is a classic, and it's pretty much flawless.
You don’t get to be one of the quintessential rock bands of history by releasing boring albums.
very good rock
Always a favorite of mine!
Classic hard rock n roll
Yeah this one rocks!
So much Rock'n'Roll! Love Bon Scotts singing. Iconic album.
It's 'Highway to Hell', c'mon.
Rock puro. Guitarreo, ritmo y fuerza. Todo un clasicazo de una superbanda
I was in the mood to turn my brain off and ROCK!!! so I'm glad to get this today. 40 minutes of straight-up rock anthems. I'm going to give this 5 stars because it's a classic good time. My only criticism is that at least 70% of the lyrics are about how much they like having sex with women... maybe mix it up a bit and throw in more lyrics about partying or Satan?
Album had a lot more bangers than I’d realize
99. Highway to Hell - AC/DC 10 tracks. I think I've mentioned before that I REALLY didn't like AC/DC in my younger days, (along with The Cure), and old me now wonders what on Earth was going on in my head back then? Absolutely love this. 5/5
Lendário. Não conhecia a história do álbum (o que deixou minha redescoberta mais interessante). Destaque, é claro, para a faixa-título: um misto de entusiasmo e movimento, de ritmo e fuga; coisas que nos tiram a gravidade, a tensão.
Embarrassing moment of second-guessing myself with this. I initially listened to this, perfectly enjoying it, but with the critical intention of determining whether this monolith of rock warranted the full 5 stars, an intention that slightly drained the sheer pleasure. This is not the mindset to approach this album, or any AC/DC album. Yes, I know, that's obvious. So, I applied some common sense. I went out and did enough physical labour to require a fistful of Deep Heat (I dug graves for two dogs), got some beers in and just rocked out (if any band justifies the employment of the phrase "rock out", it's surely AC/DC). And to nobody's surprise I loved every note, every clear, direct, unpretentious note. Akin to a perfectly cooked steak, the exact amount of taste and blood.
The energy! The chops!
A masterclass in feel good metal. Anything other than 5 is an insult.
What a Monday treat!
Great album. The best sounding album recorded with Bon Scott. The songs are fantastic but this is the first album the band recorded with producer, Mutt Lange, who really pushed AC/DC into the big league. Best songs are the title track, Touch Too Much and If You Want Blood. Weakest tracks are Love Hungry Man and Night Prowler. However, these are still good tracks.
Listened to on 4/18/22 5/5 Favorite song: Highway to Hell Absolutely classic - listened to it 3 times
Un album tellement classique. En plus Bon Scott au chant ! J,adore, un de mes prefs de AC/DC. À écouter 5/5
yeah okay all AC/DC songs are in four and are all about having sex but have you considered dudes rock
Formative Album for me. I love this shit, and so many good memories with it. Will forever ring out in my home.
🟦 98 🥇 Highway to Hell 🥈 Night Prowler 🥉 Girls Got Rhythm
Stoopid in the best way.
A stone classic. Finishes strangely slowly, but otherwise it's a snarling monster. Great driving album, too!
AC/DC in their classic period when almost every song they wrote became a rock standard - the louder the better.
Great album! Every track a winner here. Disturbing side note: - the connection between serial killer Richard Ramirez the “Night Stalker” and the final track - it was pretty creepy at the time…
The last AC/DC to sound like a barroom rock band. After this, their sound morphed into something far bigger and more electrifying. The title track is an all-time classic rock song, and deeper cuts like Shot Down In Flames, Girls Got Rhythm, Night Prowler, and If You Want Blood are all great.
classic, no skipper highway to hell and night prowler are top
Knock out of an album. Some absolute classic hits, with Bon Scott at his best.
Essential hard rock
Classic. Great. Love it.
I was not an AC/DC fan growing up. It was one of the albums I would think of when I’d tell people I was into most kinds of music except hard rock and heavy metal. I was under the impression that my musical tastes would narrow as I age, but I really like this album now. Some great rock here that’s a lot of fun!
A snapshot of my childhood. Doesn't every 50-something own this?
