5.0 out of 5 stars A Heavy Metal Masterpiece...In Every Sense of the Word, July 15, 2000
This review is from: Back in Black (Audio CD)
When AC/DC's original lead singer Bon Scott died after the band had reached it's peak with their other masterpiece Highway to Hell many people thought the band was over. Little did they know that the next year AC/DC was going to release a tribute to their deceased singer that would become one of the greatest album ever recorded. It also introduced new lead "screamer" Brian Johnson.
The first song on Back in Black is Hells Bells. It is in my opinion one of their greatest songs. It has kind of an eerie feeling to it. The next song Shoot to Thrill is AC/DC just rockin.' Angus kicks off the song with cool guitar riff (yea it's only 3 chords.) Thats another thing, I'm really sick and tired of people saying how Angus only know 3 chords and that he's a bad guitar player. As a guitar player myself I've always felt that it's not what you it's how you use what you know, and that's not even the case with Angus. He's really an amazing guitar player especially on the earlier AC/DC albums. Ok now that I've addressed that...back to the music. The put it plain and simple this album rocks. There are no power ballads or any rock cliche's. It's pure blues rock. What You Do for the Money Honey, Given the Dog A Bone, Shake A Leg, and Have A Drink On Me are amazing rocking songs. Two of AC/DC biggest songs, Back in Black and You Shook Me All Night Long are also on this album. These songs like the rest of the album are truly amazing. The greatest part about all of this is that 20 years later the songs are still in heavy rotation on many radio stations. For first time listeners this is definately the album to get and as far as AC/DC fans if you don't have Back in Black there's a problem. I also reccommend for first time listeners Highway to Hell, Let There Be Rock, Stiff Upper Lip, High Voltage, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, and For Those About to Rock.
