For Flick of the Switch, AC/DC jettisoned producer Mutt Lange in an attempt to recapture the rawness and simplicity of their early records. They more or less succeed in terms of the record's sound (although the music itself is rather underdeveloped and unmemorable), and show more energy than on the preceding For Those About to Rock We Salute You.

Flick of the Switch based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
This has to be Ac/Dc's most underrated album. This was their back to basics album right after "Back in Black" and "For Those About To Rock". They got rid of the huge production, and this is the only album that they self produced. I have no clue why people give it such a bad wrap. With songs like "Nervous Shakedown", and "Guns for Hire", you cant go wrong. This is a must have for all AC/DC fans and for fans of good hard rock.
Well, it's cliche to give every album from this band five stars, but this one probably deserves it, just because it is that underrated. You are not going to hear ten hits. What you are going to hear are ten of the most underrated songs from the band ever. The best Brian Johnson album after that one black one.....
the hard licks are fast and clean while still being ac/dc. Angus will always rock harder than anyone. The songs on this album are all great.
