iTunes Review

Bon Scott, Angus Young and Malcolm Young hit on a new level of songwriting maturation with 1978’s Powerage. You can hear it straight from the first track, “Rock ’n’ Roll Damnation”, which throws in some handclaps and back-up singers to flesh out their tale of eternal punishment, while “What’s Next to the Moon” pushes the band out of their lyrical comfort zone with its mythic storytelling. This album marks the debut of bassist Cliff Williams, who keeps the rhythm nailed down as Angus tears through complex new songs like “Riff Raff”. This would be the last album with Harry Vanda and older brother George Young on board as producers and their last before exploding into global superstardom.

Customer Reviews

Classic AC/DC

This album is probably underrated but one of the bands best. Don't drive whilst listening to this, you'll get nicked for speeding. Gone Shootin' is a masterpiece.

Underrated but Full On

A much ignored AC/DC classic.

Down Payment Blues and Gimme a Bullet show the power and expression that make AC/DC one of the finest rock bands on the planet.

Riff Raff in its studio form drives along as fast as the live version on If you want blood…

"….I've got holes in my shoes….and I'm way overdue…."

Think AC/DC are heavy metal? Listen to this masterpiece.

As an AC/DC fan of some 36 years I'm sick of people telling me they are just another heavy metal band. My standard reply is "Have you ever listened to Powerage?" It's rhythm and blues all the way with some heart felt lyrics that are delivered from the soul. With topics ranging from suicide, social depravation & exclusion to heartache & rejection it's a departure from the usual Young, Young & Scott album. Songs to look out for are Down Payment Blues, Gimme a Bullet, What's Next to The Moon and the sublime Gone Shootin'.
Take it from a lifelong fan, this is the AC/DC album to have.

AC/DC's mammoth power chord roar became one of the most influential hard rock sounds of the '70s, and is now one of the defining sounds of rock and metal. In its own way, it was a reaction against the pompous art rock and lumbering arena rock of the early '70s. AC/DC's rock was minimalist -- no matter how huge and bludgeoning their guitar chords were, there was a clear sense of space and restraint. Combined with Bon Scott's larynx-shredding vocals, the band spawned countless imitators over the next...
