2003 reissue on 180-gram vinyl LP. Collaborating for the third and final time with famed musical producer Mutt Lange, AC/DC churned out another mega hit with the album's 1981 title track "For Those About to Rock, We Salute You." A nod to gladitorial times in ancient Rome, it is also the perfect anthem to open a hard rock concert. The album shot all the way up to #1 in 1981, and it spun out the hit title track as well as "Let's Get It Up" and "Put the Finger on You." This was a strong showing for Brian Johnson on his second album as lead singer for the band, following up the infamous "Back in Black." This 2003 reissue comes in a gatefold sleeve. The album, itself, is remastered and pressed on quality 180-gram vinyl.

AC/DC's follow-up to Back in Black falls a little short, but is still one of the better albums with Brian Johnson. The highlights include "For Those About to Rock", "Let's Get it Up", "Snowballed", "Evil Walks", and "Spellbound". The other songs are not worth mentioning. I wrestled for a long time about whether to get the 2003 remastered CD digipak with the nice artwork and stuff since I had already bought High Voltage, Dirty Deeds, Let There Be Rock, Highway to Hell, and Back in Black, but decided to go with just the MP3 album since its not one of my favorite AC/DC albums. For the AC/DC fan, it's definitely worth getting; if only a casual fan, I would pass.
After the death of Bon Scott we all thought AC/DC was done !!! But much to our surprise & pleasure they didn't miss a beat so to speak releasing "Back in Black" in 1980 following their album a year pace. We were all floored by Brian Johnson's incredible vocal's & the solid all killer no filler quality of "Back in Black". When we heard this album "For those about to Rock we Salute You" we knew Brian Johnson was the real deal & AC/DC was hear to stay with another awesome rock anthem & rock solid album!!! Once again we were able to anxiously await AC/DC's next album.
Awesome classic ACDC. Buy it and play it loud!!!!!!
