Brian Johnson at His Best

"Wow, anyone who thinks Brian Johnson's voice peaked on "Back in Black" should check out this album, where he actually SINGS. Could this man ever sing. It's clear that if BJ had just taken better care of his vocal cords and produced more albums at this level he would rank in the league of Halford, Gillian, Dickinson, and Dio as one of the best hard rock/metal vocalists of all-time (I find him to be anyway, but that is not the general consensus). The range Johnson demonstrates on the incredible cover of "House of the Rising Sun" is nothing short of amazing, ranging from a soft whisper to a splintering howl. Of course, this album wouldn't warrant five stars if the other musicians weren't up to par as well, and they all perform adequately, though none are on the level of the players BJ would later associate with in AC/DC. "Don't Be Fooled" offers up rockers such as "Goin' Down," "So What," and "Got to Know," along with surprisingly good ballads such as "Look At Me," which Johnson sings very well. Overall, this is a great album to get if you like rock 'n' roll music, and a must-have if you're an avid AC/DC fan; it's well-worth the effort I went through trying to find it."

"this average band was led by guitarrist Vic Malcolm and released three albuns in sucession, between 1974 and 1976. THis one here is the second of them. AC/DC's singer Brian Johnson was their vocalistand I can guarantee you, folks, he was much better than nowadays, when he seems to have lost his voice completely. as for the music, nothing more than average hard rocking, well played but with nothing innovative going on, no big moment."
Johnson could sing back then!!! Straight ahead rock and roll

"Very good rocking album. No great inovations, but very solid. This British band released three studio albums, all of them very solid and good.The amazing thin when hearing this album is that we can testify the amount of damage that AC/DC has made to Brian Johnson's voice.(of course, AC/DC made him rich, also...). Why am I telling this? Because you'll be astonished, after listening this album, by the difference between his voice at those times and now. In DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE NAME, Johnson can actually sing! And sing in such a great way that one can finally understand why AC/DC recruited him. He sings ballads, up-rockers, slow rockers, everything with quality and ability. The screaming style he adopted with AC/DC fastly deteriorated his voice and also their music did give not room enough for him to explore all his vocals abilities within the band."
