To me, this track perfectly illustrates the key differences between popular music from the age I grew up in and the popular music of today.  The sound quality then was adequate but basic, compared to the highly sophisticated sound production of today.  But that was (and for me still is) only a small part of the overall package, wheareas today it is given far too much importance.  Much more important then, and far less so now, was the overall composition and musical balance.  For instance, it would have been so easy for a record featuring two drummers playing such iconic and memorable bursts of drumming to overwhelm the entire piece of music.  But they don't.  They constitute an interesting feature of the piece, not its dominating component.  They achieve this in two ways.  Firstly by generating two different sounds, two differing ways of delivering the same basic drum breaks, which gives variety and adds interest.  Secondly, and a lot of lead guitarists should take a leaf out of their book for this point, their feature drumming is not continuous for overly long periods of time, just long enough to be spectacular without being tedious.  In between times, they show respect to the other musicians and take a back seat, allowing the lead guitarist, who himself has a catchy riff with a real "hook" that you find yourself humming afterwards, and sing along with at the time.  But this is not endlessly repeated, like today's music is.  It is developed and varied throughout the piece.  You never get tired of any one component of this piece because all of it is presented in exactly the right proportions to continue being interesting, while avoiding the pitfall today's music falls into of quickly becoming  boring.  Two final factors complete this composition as a tour-de-force.  It is lively, energetic and inspirational.  And it is exactly the right length.  I have had endless debates with younger people who cannot see why the "three-minute song" is the perfect length.  The answer is that when you get to the end you want to play the whole thing over again.  When today's music ends, you heave a big sigh of relief and vow that you never want to hear it ever again.  Today's musicians could learn a lot from studying a piece like this.  To my ears it's a ten out of ten track.  Perfect.
