Growing up in the 1980's was a treat, because of the music. Bands like AC/DC, Scorpions, LA Guns, Billy Idol were staples on rock radio and MTV. Pop music had a sense of direction, and there was no self-loathing in the lyrics. This band, Airbourne, is a modern reincarnation of early AC/DC and Bad Company, and it hits hard from the get go. The melodies and riffs don't let up, and wow do these songs stay in your head all day! "Runnin' Wild" is the best hard rock song to be released in years, and yes it is the one from the Madden 2008 soundtrack. I purchased this album from an mp3 store but I enjoyed it so much I want the original artwork. There is not a dull moment on this entire CD. It is like stepping into the best moments of 1980's hair metal WITHOUT leaving 2007. The music has a bass-heavy, modern vibe to it, and it is not at all pretentious and it DOESN'T TRY TOO HARD!!! The Darkness and Buck Cherry will be an afterthought once this band hits it big in the US. This CD has renewed my faith in sensible melodic hard rock, and it stands as my lone hard rock album of the 2000's that I consider a classic along the lines of AC/DC's "Back In Black," Van Halen's debut album, Metallica's "Ride the Lightning," Guns n Roses' "Appetite for Destruction," and most notably Def Leppard's "Hysteria."

After about the 15th comparison to AC/DC, I decided I had to check out this band so I browsed their Myspace page and listened to some tracks. I was blown away by the energy. I picked it up on release day and flipped it into the CD player as soon as I climbed into my truck. Within minutes I had the volume blasting, rattling the windows, and could see myself in the bar raising a pint to these guys on stage. INCREDIBLE!

As incredible as the album is, there's nothing special here....no great guitar riffs, no exotic vocals. Just a kick a** band that likes its rock and roll loud and without compromise. Whereas AC/DC is a little more complex in their song structure (and Angus is way beyond this band in the lead guitar category), these guys settle for the simple in your face approach. The vocals are quite AC/DCish, and remind me a bit of the naughtiness of Bon Scott. The vocalist has a decent sound, nothing like Scott's devilish purr or Brian Johnson's growl, but his sound fits the songs well.

There will be no essays about the complexity of the songs, the in depth meaning of the lyrics....but there will be some good times across the USA in small venues as these guys tear a path across the States. Mates, welcome to the USA, and if you don't come to Albuquerque I'll completely rescind this glowing review and send you all straight to hell :-)

For the first time in a long time, it actually seems like real rock & roll is coming back in a big way. New bands are emerging from all over the globe that are bucking trends and making music that is fun and that flat out rocks. Australia's Airbourne are one of the best of this new breed of real rock & roll bands.

Airbourne's sound can be described in one word: AC/DC. This band is following in their legendary countrymen's footsteps in every possible way, from their huge guitar hooks to the raspy vocals to the innuendo-laden lyrics to embracing every excess of the rock & roll lifestyle. Normally I'd write off this kind of hero worship as shallow, but that's missing the point here. It's not shallow, it's gloriously shallow. It's big dumb rock in the best possible sense of the term.

2008's Runnin' Wild is the band's debut, and if ever an album was made to blow out stereo speakers, it is this one. It's one massive rock anthem after another celebrating rock & roll, booze, sex, and having sex while drinking booze and rocking. The lyrics are incredibly silly, but really, who cares? You don't buy an album like Runnin' Wild expecting the next Radiohead. You buy it because it's fun and it rocks, and man o man does it ever deliver. The whole album is fun, but I prefer the faster paced songs. Opening single "Stand Up for Rock n' Roll" is a terrific rock anthem, and the title track is even better.

What more can I say? If you miss this kind of rock, get this CD now!

NOTE: There is an MP3-only Special Edition of Runnin' Wild that includes a full five bonus studio tracks. These songs - "Heads are Gonna Roll", "Dirty Angel", "Hotter than Hell", "Red Dress Woman" and "Stand & Deliver" - are all in the same rockin' style as the regular album, and are just as much fun. The best part is that you can download them individually. I already had the Runnin' Wild CD, so I just grabbed all five bonus tracks for less than five bucks.

This is a great package. I already owned the cd, but this set offers the bonus cd track "Hellfire" which they performed live when I saw them live in Allentown, PA. This track is also the opening song on the DVD which IS playable in the US IF you have an all-region dvd player. They are inexpensive and can be found on ebay. The concert is very good and the three videos are also "thumbs up". A one star score is unexcusable due to reviewer's ingnorance...it plainly says "PAL Region 2 dvd". If you are a fan of Airbourne, do yourself a favor and buy this, you won't be dissappointed.
