Roundhouse Studios, London, England
Perfect album, it's sounds from beginning to end f***ing great!!
ANother superb album. While in my HUMBLE opinion, all early records are a MUST have, this one - together with Back in Black - reaches previously unheard highs in AC/DC rock history, because of a new (for AC/DC) recording and mastering procedure. Lange and Platt have done a terrific job on this one and Back in Black. Evidently, guitar tone wise and mastering wise, it was the prelude to Back in Black.
Highway to Hell was the first worldwide success AC/DC had, and for good reason. Selling over 6 million copies this album continues to be one of the greatest ever made.
It begins with the song “Highway to Hell” which I think is the best AC/DC song ever. The initial guitar riff is unmistakable and Bon Scott’s voice let you know that if you and your friends went to Hell it would be a fun road trip. However, the song is about the traveling on road to becoming a rock band so don’t think it has a literal meaning.
This was also the first AC/DC album to cut back on the amount of quieter and slower songs featured. The song “Night Prowler” is the only one that doesn’t have the hard rock we all love AC/DC for. But it’s still much louder than previous quiet songs.
All of the songs on this album are good. There isn’t one I dislike. This album brought AC/DC into the mainstream for a reason and there are ten reasons on Highway to Hell I can think of. (Hint the ten are the songs).
Unfortunately, this would be Bon Scott’s last album for he past away on February 18, 1980. He death was not only a loss for the band but also for the entire musical community. On that date the world lost one of the greatest song writers of all time and I would like to say thank you to Bon for all of the memories. Thankfully your lyrical writing and singing will let you never be forgotten.
Rest in Peace Bon (1946-1980).
My favourite AC/DC album from all of them, the moment when AC/DC beated Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones and The Who. Favourite songs: ,,Highway to Hell", ,,Girl's Got Rhythm", ,,Walk All Over You", ,,Touch Too Much", ,,Shot Down in Flames", ,,Night Prowler"
Bom, antes de falar do álbum, gostaria de dizer, que a primeira vez que acreditei que rock era verdadeiramente foda, foi quando ouvi na casa de um amigo meu a música Highway to Hell, ouvi umas 30 vezes, baixei e fiquei ouvindo alguns dias sem parar, comecei a gostar de rock e digo que isso mudou minha vida, apesar de eu não ter vivido nem duas décadas.
Mas, além de Highway to hell, nesse álbum há outras excelentes músicas. Para mim o melhor álbum do AC/DC, digo que há um que de diferente dos outros trabalhos do AC/DC até então, uma coisa menos tão tão rock n' roll tão nua e crua, mas uma coisa um pouco mais trabalhada, mas sem fugir do padrão.
Sucesso de vendas, último álbum com Bon Scott, se tivesse que dar uma nota de 0 a 10 para esse álbum, essa nota seria 10,1.
всем привет, ЭТО САМЫЙ ЛУТШИЙ АЛЬБОМ КОТОРЫЙ Я СЛЫШАЛ В СВОЕЙ ЖИЗНИ, КАЖДЫЙ ДЕНЬ Я НАЧИНАЮ С Touch Too Much , Я БЛАГОДАРЕН ЧТО ОНИ ЕСТЬ, ДАЙ БОГ ИМ КРЕПКОГО ЗДОРОВЬЯ
