Summary
One of the perennial complaints about AC/DC is that they have never changed; and if that is true, High Voltage is the blueprint they have followed all their career. Comprised of highlights from their first two Australian albums --- 1975's TNT and its 1976 follow-up, also entitled High Voltage --- the album has every single one of AC/DC's archetypes. There are songs about rock & roll, slow sleazy blues, high-voltage boogie, double entendres so obvious they qualify as single entendres and, of course, the monster riffs of Angus Young so big and bold they bruise the listener upon contact. It's those riffs --- so catchy they sound lifted when they are original, so simple they are often wrongly dismissed as easy --- that give the music its backbone, the foundation for Bon Scott to get dirty; and rockers never got quite as dirty as Bon Scott, and he made no apologies for that. But as primal as High Voltage is, it is also a lot weirder and funnier than given credit for. This is music so primal that it is enduring, feeling like it existed before AC/DC got there and it will exist long afterward. And if AC/DC did wind up bettering this blueprint in the future, there is no question that this original is still potent, even thrilling, no matter how many times they returned to the well, or how many times this record is played. -- Editorial Review provided by Stephen Thomas Erlewine for All Music Guide, taken and adapted from Barnes And Noble website
