“Given that Bon Scott’s hard-partying, sex-booze-and-brawls lifestyle tragically caught up with him some six months after Highway to Hell was released, the album-opening title track — one of hard rock’s all-time classics — now takes on an eerie resonance. It’s not just a snotty, nihilistic party anthem, but a moment of unrepentant self-recognition from a rowdy ruffian who, for better or worse, exulted in what he was. The rest of the songs on Highway to Hell don’t lend themselves to any deep readings, but of course, that’s not the point. Highway to Hell distilled all the virtues of AC/DC’s signature minimalism — loud, simple, pounding riffs and grooving backbeats — into the tightest batch of songs the group had written to that point, barreling along at a take-no-prisoners rate and producing a handful of gems.” — All Music Guide

Reviewer: aging rocker
I took my multi award winning digital front end to the hi-fi shop for a duel against vinyl playback. My purpose was to dispel nagging thoughts of moving back to vinyl. The cost and inconvenience of this ancient medium were unappealing.

The comparison was done on this album. The sound was lush and energetic, and sound staging and separation superior. This remastering cost me 25k. You can get it for much less.

The original pressings blow away the AC/DC reissues. Might be analog sourced but I think digital mix/mastering.
