This is my favorite album by AC/DC even though everybody likes 'Back In Black'the best,I love this album and i think every HARD ROCK fan should get this one.

From: Dusty Date: July 8, 2001 at 20:44
Well Tim I agree with you Back In Black was bigger but Let There Be Rock is still and always will be a classic.My three favorite songs from this one are:Let There Be Rock,Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be and Whale Lotta Rosie.And yes everyone should get this album.

the best album from acdc....incredible

From: Ron Date: April 8, 2002 at 18:09
In my opinion AC/DC put out 4 albums that I would rate 10 on a 1 to 10 scale. 'Let there be rock' is one of them. The other 3 are 'Powerage', 'Highway to Hell' and of course 'Back in Black'. All 4 albums are a guitar assualt on the ears which is find with me. However 'Let there be rock' shows that Angus Young can really play ( pick ) his guitar and is up there with the likes of Eddie Van Halen, Ronnie Montrose and Jimmy Page. Songs like 'Let there be rock', 'Hell ain't a bad place to be' and 'Ba

From: dokken6008 Date: April 18, 2002 at 3:38
Not my favorite AC/DC record (actually I don't really HAVE a favorite; they have so much great material), but definitely a classic. 'Whole Lotta Rosie', 'Dog Eat Dog', 'Problem Child', 'Bad Boy Boogie', 'Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be' and of course the title track, 'Let There Be Rock' are ALL classic AC/DC rockers and are STILL being played live by the boys to this day. I would rate 'LTBR' 10/10 being a classic, but an 8.7/10 as an honest personal rating/personal preference.

From: The Fizzy One Date: October 28, 2002 at 20:52
Tied with Highway to Hell as my favorite with Bon Scott. But get it right, it's 'Crabsody in Blue,' not 'Crapsody.' It's about body lice, get it? Har! Also, that song isn't on all versions of this CD for some reason, nor is the abbreviated version of 'Problem Child' with the ending chopped off. Only 'Dog Dat Dog' ISN'T spectacular. The Fizz Picks: 'L.T.B>R.,' 'Bad Boy Boogie,' 'Problem Child,' 'Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be' and 'Whole Lotta Rosie.'

From: Great Dane Date: February 19, 2003 at 1:42
Saw Ac/Dc live back in 1978 with Bon Scott. Their live show was really down to basic, but DAMN did the music rock. I remember Angus running around like a maniac, playing pure Rock'N'Roll. Within the same months I saw Ramones, Runaways, Sex Pistols and Kiss/Iron Maiden. Music are not beeing made like that anymore........

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: March 9, 2003 at 4:37
Hey Dan, I see that you added 'Crabsody In Blue' to the song list (very cool). If you want to know, the track time is 4:43 long. For those of you that may not know, 'Cradsody In Blue' is from the original Australian album and was never released in the United States. To bad, because that song is great!!

From: rising power Date: March 23, 2003 at 23:45
This is the AC/DC album to start with. It's very basic AC/DC. It's sounds like a sneak preview to eighties HEAVY METAL. Just listen to bands like Saxon,Accept,Krokus,NWOBHM etc. and you know what I mean. It's like an eighties record made in the seventies.

From: fasteddie Date: May 21, 2003 at 18:59
In my opinion, this is their BEST! Of course this was the 1st of their's I had heard - learned to play guitar with this (close, anyway). Smoked some of my 1st to this... Got some of my 1st hmmmsy to this.... This is what a rock album should be, raw & raunchy, loud & proud. Bon & Angus shine on this CLASSIC! Marshall/Gibson ROCK-N-ROLL! Wooo-hoooo!!!

From: mars Date: March 11, 2004 at 4:31
The best AC/DC album.Rock'n'roll for ever

From: Big Papa K Date: June 19, 2004 at 1:00
A little less commercial than the last album, but those guitars just can't be topped for this type of hard rock. 'Let There Be Rock' is the definitive statement of the Bon Scott era. Closes out with the other classic from the album, 'Whole Lotta Rosie'. 8/10

From: Rycheage Date: July 5, 2004 at 20:26
This is one of the better releases. More mature and a little less raw. 'Whole Lotta Rosie', 'Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be', 'Let There Be Rock' and 'Problem Child'. Can't say I heard 'Crapsody In Blue' though. Even the lesser tunes rock. 'Go Down', 'Dog Eat Dog', and 'Bad Boy Boogie' being the ones I enjoyed the most. Very good release and a good barometer of what was to come.

From: Endika Date: August 19, 2004 at 9:17
One of the best AC DC albmus. In my opinion the best AC DC album after 'Highway to hell' and 'Black in Black'. 9/10

From: Propane Date: December 2, 2004 at 13:29
Still didn't care for Bon's style. I bought these with the hope of musician seasoning (namely, Bon).

From: aMetalhead1966 Date: February 13, 2006 at 15:55
This is a rude,sloppy,rip-roaring wake up in puke effort.The start of 'Overdose' has a bad note thump left in...Angus' amp blew up at the end of 'Rosie',but his Bro(the Producer) told him Don't Stop!!Bon has a way with words and phrases that will never be topped!!Yes there is humor here,but it goes WAY beyond that,they convey a message that is unspoken and true! Rock isn't meant to be perfect,just raw loud and honest.10/10!!

From: roisin dubh Date: March 29, 2006 at 1:59
Gettin there, still not brilliant, but still very good riff driven no frills boogie

From: Metalmusicman Date: January 2, 2007 at 17:44
I really didn't feel it as much as everyone else on this one. The guitar sound is more raw with a blues edge here and it sounds excellent. I just found the songs a little lacking in melody for me and that really matters. Still some classics here like 'Whole Lotta Rosie', 'Problem Child', 'Let There Be Rock', and 'Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be'. Good, but far from great.

From: pie75 Date: March 5, 2009 at 6:56
yep as bon said in the title track "and the music was good and the music was loud" this is the album that ac/dc announced that they were on their way 2 become the best band in the world a dead set classic apparently an amp caught fire during the recording of this album let there be rock indeed

From: fcmahlzeit Date: June 21, 2009 at 10:39
The best AC/DC - Album besides "Powerage" !!!!!

From: West Of Sunset Date: October 9, 2009 at 22:49
The best AC/DC album for me. I bought the tape in 1995 and it contains the track "Crapsody in blue". Too bad that this song has never been relased in Europe, adn why the put "Problem child"???? is a thing that i have never understand. Overall the best album with a raw sound and powerful songs!!!!

From: Doug Date: October 21, 2009 at 13:00
"Overdose" flat out kicks butt! Great album.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: September 28, 2012 at 16:57
On their third disc, the boys finally lock in on their sound, full-tilt. Everything is cranked up a couple notches over the first two releases: energy, volume, attitude, overall songwriting. The only knock is that the American release doesn't include "Crabsody In Blue" (aka "The Jack, Part II"), and instead features "Problem Child," because Dirty Deeds wasn't released in the U.S. until '81. My favorites would be the title track, "Whole Lotta Rosie," "Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be" and "Bad Boy Boogie," one of the band's top "deep cuts."

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 23, 2015 at 13:32
Yeah as my friend Doghouse Reilly said ...this album is packed with good songs in the shape of "Dog Eat Dog","Let There Be Rock","Problem Child","Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Live" & "Whole Lotta Rosie"...i own the vinyl with 8 tracks...raw & direct Hard Rock...86/100
