'Blow Up Your Video' & 'Fly On The Wall' have long been AC/DC's most OVERLOOKED studio records of all-time. The fact that there had been NO posts under either of those albums up to now, proves my point even stronger. 'Fly On The Wall' is AC/DC's biggest departure ever from their original formula & for that, I think that the band deserves some credit. 'FOTW' is a very solid record (title track is excellent) & just b/c they don't play any of the songs live doesn't mean it isn't a good album.

This is my favorite ACDC album all the songs rock. These guys dont care for the latest trend they do what they want to do and thats one of the reasons their awesome. Every song on this album rocks, no fillers just awesome rock music, this is a must have for any rock fan

From: dokken6008 Date: June 24, 2002 at 6:20
R.R. is on to something. Man, I have never known ANYONE to call 'Fly On The Wall' his favorite (nor is it mine)--what a unique guy. It's always 'Back In Black', 'Back In Black', 'Back In Black'--damn, I get tired of hearing it!!! 'Oh, AC/DC never peaked higher, they never will again', 'Johnson's voice has gone to hell' or even MORE freaking irritating--'AC/DC's 'magic' ended the day Bon died'. God, I hate those fucking Bon Scott fanatics!! Brian's been w/ AC/DC for over 20 years--!!!!!!!

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: June 24, 2002 at 21:15
I have to say that this is one hell of a CD! Angus and Malcolm produced this album on their own. I think the vocals could have been turned up a bit more but, the songs are great. First Blood is outstanding and the last three songs are very tough! Some would say that this is were AC/DC fell off. I DON'T THINK SO!!!

From: RichieRocker Date: June 24, 2002 at 21:25
Thank you Jason!!! I just played this album again and I cant get enough of it.

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: September 8, 2002 at 19:56
Anyone who wants to know what ex-member Simon Wright is up to than you can go to his new webpage at It gives a bio. and stuff for sale as well as photos. I just found out about this site and I thought that I would pass on the news.

From: Blue Tequila Date: December 31, 2002 at 2:11
AC/DC has always been my favorite band. I would love to see their next album have the same energy and originality that this album had. We used to throw this tape in at parties and just have a hell of a time. It was so upbeat and rockin'. 'Razors Edge' was like that also. After the last couple of what I would call uninspired and damn near boring releases these guys need to sit down and actually put some thought into their next album...If there's gonna be another one.

From: samolice Date: February 19, 2003 at 19:14
Probably one of the most underated ACDC album. FOTW is an awsome track and i regrzt that the band doesn't play it live more often. All songs are great. I love it 9.5/10

From: rising power Date: March 23, 2003 at 23:58
This album is the heavyist AC/DC album. Totally HEAVY METAL. A sharp contrast with the cupboard production of STIFF UPPER LIP. If this album was produced by the Young brothers I wish they would start producing there own records again because this record sounds so big and heavy

From: SPOTLIGHT Date: May 28, 2003 at 3:13
I've always been rather fond of this album. I pretty much dig everything the band has ever done. But, for some reason, I find myself drawn to this one. SINK THE PINK is cool. As if we all don't know what that tune's about!

From: Desslar Date: May 28, 2003 at 6:23
A solid AC/DC album, where the band flirts a bit with 80s commercial hard rock. Several outstanding tracks including 1, 2, and 5. There are some ho-hum numbers too though.

From: Carlomagno Date: August 8, 2003 at 14:53
A mi este disco me parece muy bueno, a pesar de que no fue lo suficientemente promocionado en su tiempo. El track inicial, Shake Your Foundations y Sin The Pink son cl'sicos para m'!! 90/100

From: keebler Date: October 4, 2003 at 13:45
i'm not that crazy about this album it has moments but not a fav. of mine.

From: Caspirus Date: November 28, 2003 at 13:03
I have to agree with Jason on his point about the vocals. Whats that all about?? Why did they press the record when the vocals were so un-mastered. It sounds like Brian did the vocals down the phone. I remember rushing into town to buy this album on the day of release, and I remember how disappointed I was when I first heard the muted vocals. I also remember dreading the fact that the band may actually quite like it like that and all subsequent albums could be the same... thankfully not.

From: Gar Date: December 17, 2003 at 18:25
Unusually upbeat for an AC/DC album(except for the slightly menacing 'Danger', a very underrated song by the way), this is possibly their most overlooked disc. There are some solid tunes on this, but alas, an awful lot of filler as well. I think people who may normally be turned off by the heaviness of the band may actually dig this one. This is probably AC/DC's most 'pop' album(if such a thing is possible) yet it still rocks hard enough for the typical 'metal' fan.

From: ac-dc#1 Date: April 27, 2004 at 0:44
One day my cousin gave me Fly on the wall and I never heard of this AC/DC album I put it in and damn this is the heaviest AC/DC album I have ever heard no bad songs one of my personal favs

From: sa�a Date: April 29, 2004 at 5:25
wat ist that album?i never hear abot that you now abot this call me blac sabbath.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 19, 2004 at 1:15
I agree with some of the others about the vocals on this album being mixed too low. But this is around the time when Johnson started to lose some of his voice, which would not really come back until 'Stiff Upper Lip'. The production is not too strong, but 'Shake Your Foundation' and 'Sink The Pink' are still strong songs. 6/10

From: Propane Date: December 2, 2004 at 14:03
This one was a strong one. Perhaps could've been better, but a very good joust. Musically sound to me.

From: visitor Date: March 11, 2005 at 12:53
I'm surprised that AC/DC don't play any of the tracks from this album live, because these are all great songs. Well, maybe they did back when this was released, but recently it has been the same set for every show with minimum difference for years now. If this album is underrated, the band can blame themselves for some of it, as well as with Flick of the Switch. I'd love to hear Sink the Pink, Shake Your Foundations or the title track anytime instead of some tracks they play over and over again.

From: roisin dubh Date: October 24, 2006 at 14:42
Average run of the mill AC/DC album, nothing especially stands out but nothing really sucks either

From: poproxx2007 Date: November 28, 2006 at 11:41
This came out at a rough time for the band. The tour that followed was plagued because of the Night Stalker in L.A. I remember not being able to see the show at the Pac Amp here in L.A. in Nov 85. One of they're best releases as its they're first to deal with real life situations. Brian sings from the soul and a vibe never heard again on any AC/DC releases is only evident here. Why can't radio play some of these songs instead of 'You Shook Me..' and others. A real overlooked classic imo!

From: RockMan10 Date: August 19, 2007 at 0:45
Fantastic CD for AC/DC. One of my favs since it came out. Some of these songs are among their best.

From: erik Date: August 21, 2007 at 8:04
One of my favortie bands but the guy just CANNOT sing or hold a tune. Cant listen to anything they released with BJ. Seems he is shooting all the time and cannot reach the high notes. Takes him way too much effort. AC/DC with Bonn was the only AC/DC.

From: Lennie Date: August 21, 2007 at 9:02
Except of course for Back in Black which must rank as one of the greatest rock albums of all time ;-)

From: pie75 Date: March 14, 2009 at 9:45
this album always cops crap as the worst ac/dc album out there and while that's probably true is it really that bad? i think not an average album from ac/dc is like a good album from somebody else we are talking about the best band in the world i do agree that the vocals were a bit muffled but it still has some great tracksthe first 5 songs for a start and stand up being the best doesn't sink the pink rock i guess the only unfair thing now is every cd they put out gets rated against back in black now and that's unfair as you should rate it for what it is it's a good album

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 7, 2017 at 17:51
Cool rocking album ala...AC/DC!...tracks 6,7 & 9 are the ones for me .85/100

From: petermexico13 Date: July 10, 2017 at 18:14
AC DC a media década de los 80s en tiempos turbulentos para ellos, en mi opinión este disco está infravalorado en general, pero me parece muy consistente y crece en cada escucha, algo ruidoso eso sí, pero es AC DC!, más que destacar algún tema en general todos tienen el mismo calibre, nada nuevo bajo el sol pero un disco donde aún se puede escuchar a Brian Johnson en su mejor forma. Como todo disco de AC DC sientes que ya lo has escuchado antes pero siempre encuentras temas interesante y que te harán ponerte de buenas y mover los pies!
