AC/DC: Powerage

Sound — 10
The sound on this album is pretty sweet. Although the Young brothers thought it was time to make their guitars a little cleaner, they still know how to rock. And needless to say every track on here does.

Bon Scott shines on this album. He can write sultry songs like "Sin City" and he can play the down and out guy in songs like "Down Payment Blues" and "Give Me A Bullet To Bite On." He even writes great on the rocker "Rock And Roll Damnation" which makes you want to pick up the guitar and become a rocker too. Every song on this album is relatible. From Riff Raff To Up to my neck in you. This album is awesome.

Overall Impression — 10
All in all as an AC/DC this album is right up there with Highway To Hell and Back In Black. If you don't already own this album get it now. Granted this is a hard one to come by but once you find it you'll be glad you bought it. If you don't buy this CD baby jesus will cry.
