I read one of the numerous biographies that have been made on AC/DC. If I remember correctly, there are 2 notable albums that they don't EVER talk about, so much they hated making it and what it sounded like in the end. If I'm not mistaking, Fly On The Wall is one of these 2 !
May be an answer to you on why this album sounded weird !

Not their best album but I do like it. I've been a fan of ac/dc all of my life.
Like you said it sounds echoy and off but even though critics didn't like the album at all like always AC/DC bounced back.
Most bands release at least one album that sucks- I call it a experimental phase. They try new things, different sound and most of the time it's not well received.
