“Highway To Hell” by AC/DC - album review

TJR says

For their sixth new music album in July, 1979, they line-up: Bon Scott (lead vocals), Angus Young (lead guitar), Malcolm Young (rhythm guitar, backing vocals), Cliff Williams (bass guitar, backing vocals) and Phil Rudd (drums). It was a big breakthrough for the group, giving them their biggest hit in the UK to date (#8) and a Top 20 (#17) in the US. Producer 'Mutt' Lange, who could just as easily turn his hand to the Boomtown Rats as AC/DC, was at the helm, and he takes a lot of the credit for the album's rich tones. Said Angus Young: “He was meticulous about sound, getting right guitars and drums. He would zero in—and he was good too on the vocal side. Even Bon was impressed with how he could get his voice to sound.” The lead guitarist spoke about the album's title: “Just because you call an album “Highway To Hell” you get all kinds of grief. And all we'd done is describe what it's like to be on the road for four years, like we'd been. A lot of it was bus and car touring, with no real break. You crawl off the bus at four o'clock in the morning, and some journalist's doing a story and he says, "What would you call an AC/DC tour?" Well, it was a highway to hell. It really was. When you're sleeping with the singer's socks two inches from your nose, that's pretty close to hell.
