5.0 out of 5 stars One of their very best, February 22, 2004
This review is from: The Razor's Edge (Audio CD)
"The Razor's Edge" is not as well known, or indeed as well liked, as "Highway To Hell" or "Back In Black", but it is nevertheless one of AC/DC's very best albums, and certainly their second-best with Brian Johnson.
"The Razor's Edge" rose to #2 on the Billboard 200, and produced three top 20 rock singles, the menacing "Thunderstruck", the formulaic but fun "Are You Ready", and the catchy, anthemic "Moneytalks". And the rest is great as well, all crunchy power chords, big riffs, big hooks, big, dumb, testosterone-powered songs.
Brian Johnson sound as good as he ever did, and lesser-known songs like "Fire Your Guns", "If You Dare", "Shot Of Love", and the title track are better than most of the best songs on AC/DC's mediocre mid-80s albums. There are no weak tracks here at all, and if you only ever buy a handful of AC/DC albums, this should definitely be one of them. "The Razor's Edge" recaptured everything that was great about AC/DC in the 70s and early 80s.
