Rolling Stone
Lead singer Bon Scott spits out his vocals with a truly annoying aggression which, I suppose, is the only way to do it when all you seem to care about is being a star so that you can get laid every night. And that, friends, comprises the sum total of themes discussed on this record. Stupidity bothers me. Calculated stupidity offends me. […]
Very nice song. I can’t exactly state what this song is about (feel free to enlighten me!). Personally 5/5 (classic). Commercially, no clue (feel free to enlighten me on that too) […]

Metal Storm
So, if you like to listen to music to have fun, then High Voltage is a must have classic. In fact, if you can’t enjoy this album even a little bit, then you’ve probably had your sense of humour surgically removed somewhere along the line! […]
