iTunes Review

Released in 1985 after a two-year recording break, right at the peak of the MTV era and the start of the hair metal rage, Fly on the Wall was a much-needed reminder that AC/DC was there first and did it best. During the band's hiatus they let go of original drummer Phil Rudd and brought in Simon Wright. Installing a fresh backbone wasn't the only new development. Due in part to the band's own success, heavy music was now finding a place in the charts on a regular basis. The emerging "pop metal" sounds had nothing on AC/DC. Fly on the Wall made no concessions to anything other than the band's own aesthetic. No ballads, no over-production, no haircuts, nothing but denim, t-shirts and strutting new tunes like "Shake Your Foundations" and "Hell or High Water." A firm reminder of how unshakeable this band could be.

FLY ON THE WALL

Definitely one of their most underrated albums!

shake your foundations

This is the real ACDC...not what you hear on classic radio.....

Ehhh

Okay, there's no such thing as a bad AC/DC album but, this is the weakest when it's comes to production and mix. Mutt was seriously needed for this recording. Some great tracks as always, just doesnt have the UMPHH, Power and proper mix that any AC/DC album should have. Thank God Itunes has AC/DC now.

Formed: 1973 in Sydney, Australia

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...
