    Possibly- THE Hidden-Sleeper AC-DC Effort

    yes- a REAL Hidden-Sleeper. DownPaymentBlues-- and its possible use of a BarreChord progression.

    RiffRaff-- and its use of a Scale-Note Sequence progression for the most part.

    GOOD Performance-Guitar Sound Quality. The Song writing is often more Fluid-Authentic when compared to other AC-DC efforts.

    A lot of Good ROCK music here. Template Stuff-- for all you GuitarSongWriterRockTypes.

    AC/DC kick their listeners in the teeth again

    AC/DC's "Powerage" is a criminally underrated record. Though it may not be packed with hits the way "Highway to Hell" and "Back in Black" are, I know I am not alone when I say I think it is the greatest studio record the band ever recorded. "Powerage" just flows so well and all the songs are among AC/DC's most underrated. Additionally, the production is perfect. It's raw and gritty it's not too heavy or too light. "Rock and Roll Damnation" gets things off to a great start and "Down Payment Blues" is a smoking blues number with a great bass riff. "Gimme a Bullet" is both poppy and gritty. This song is over way too soon. "Sin City" is the only true single from the record, but what a great single it is. The AC/DC dynamics are firmly in place and it just may be the highlight of the entire album. "What's Next to the Moon" is definately one of those songs more AC/DC fans need to hear. "Gone Shootin'" is a good, more subtle blues track and "Up to My Neck in You" is AC/DC at their perverted best. Don't get me wrong, any fan needs all early AC/ DC up to "Back in Black." But to me, "Powerage" remains their pinnacle. If you haven't heard it, do yourself a favor and lend an ear.

    What is next to the Moon?

    If you want non-stop rock, you got it. Malcolm Youngs rythym guitar not only pounds the pee pee out of you but does unusual harmonizing.Bon Scott howls and Angus rips, what else can I say. If you want hard blues rock, get it. Riff Raff will tear you apart, put your seatbelt on you goon.

    Every AC DC fan needs this one!

    A favorite of Angus. AND WITH GOOD REASON. If you're an AC DC fan and you don't have this you are in for SURPRISE. SIN CITY is one of their best. I'm surprised it isn't on AC DC live. This pure Marshall amp tone RULES. Down Payment Blues has more chords than usual, (of interest to the guitar player)!!!

    Powerage is AC/DC's best in my book.

    One of AC/DC's most underated efforts, Powerage is my favorite album. The songs are just pure blues-rock, and entirely raw. The last few songs are not filler, they are just as good as the rest of the songs. Riff Raff is fast all the way, Sin City is great, and What's Next to the Moon is AC/DC's most different song lyrically. The solo on Up To My Neck In You is very cool, and the song Kicked In the Teeth is raw and powerful. Powerage is a great album. If you don't have it already, buy it. It is definitely a classic.

    A perfect example of AC/DC at it's roots!

    If you know AC/DC, then you know that their roots are in blues. This album is a perfect example. Believe it or not, Angus Young himself said this is his favorite AC/DC album out there! That should be enough proof to make you buy it. Filled with under-rated songs, Powerage is one of the greats in my book!
