AC/DC (For Those About to Rock) 1980




Inner Sleeve




For Those About to Rock. Oh f*ck me. Many AC/DC fans will go to the end of the earth saying this is the definitive AC/DC album and I really wouldn't even try to argue with that assessment at all because it's that damn good. You really can't lose with either Back In Black or For Those About to Rock. On the other end of the spectrum you will have fans saying it sucks. Whatever. Rolling Stone Magazine is a weird publication if you ask me. For their review, they said that this album is the best one ever for the band, yet it doesn't even rank in their Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time list. Go figure. Personally I would put FTATR in the Top 25. Once again Production falls into the mighty hands and ears of Robert John "Mutt" Lange. I highly recommend this album for anyone looking to get into the band. This was the only AC/DC album to go #1, until Black Ice came out in 2008.

The album opens up with one of the greatest openers ever with the title track in the form of For Those About to Rock (We Salute You) . I say that a lot, but this ranks right up there as one of the all time best. It's got cannons damn it!!!  Other great songs that need to be savored are Put The Finger On You, Get It Up, Breaking The Rules and Night Of The Long Knives.

Fave Songs: All of 'em. Co-MVP goes to....For Those About to Rock (We Salute You) and Night Of The Long Knives

Album cover is ok. I love the idea of the cannon, but I hate the rust color.
