"I always liked AC/DC, alright?!",
This review is from: The Razors Edge (Audio CD)
After the magnificent peak of "Back In Black", it seemed that AC/DC had spent their muse. Their creative slump through the 80s came to an end, though, as they delivered this superb gem in September 1990.
"The Razors Edge" was a sizable hit, although not as big as it deserved, and it is filled with the kind of memorable, catchy and unapologetically silly rock n' roll that made "Black In Black" such a tremendous album.
From the menacing title song through the melodious (and surprisingly big) hit singles "Thunderstruck", "Are You Ready" and "Moneytalks", to the silly "Mistress For Christmas", this record doesn't have a single weak track. Even the lesser-known album tracks, such as "Shot Of Love", "If You Dare" and "Let's Make It" are more than worth a listen, and rarely has any rock band put together such a great collection of songs...tune for tune, riff for riff, this is better than most hard rock bands' greatest hits-collections.
The title, by the way, is a quote from a 1988 interview with Keith Richards.
