It will always be a mystery how a grown man can spend his life wearing a school tie and short pants and receive adulation from the heavy metal fraternity. HM followers do not tolerate a cissy, yet the hugely talented Angus Young has become something of a hero. His riff-laden fills, combined with the tough vocals of the late Bon Scott, made AC/DC one of the genre's all-time leading lights. Bordering on the lighter side of metal, songs such as 'Love Hungry Man', 'Touch Too Much' and the title track will always delight.
What the critics say...
Q (12/94, p.157) - 3 Stars - Good - "...a 41-minute jackhammer groove that, years later, would still be obsessing everyone from Run DMC to Killing Joke. Rick Rubin's Def American label was probably blueprinted the minute he heard 'Girls Got Rhythm'..."
Mojo (Publisher) (12/00, p.84) - "...By retaining their simplicity and adding a bit of polish, 'Mutt' Lange produced their first million-seller, its air-punching title track quickly becoming a staple at teenagers' booze-fuelled parties on both sides of the Atlantic..."
