If you are a coneisseuer of Australian pub rock and especially AC/DC this band is for you. Airbourne provides pure high adrenaline. They are AC/DC on steroids. Joel O'Keeffe is the lead vocalist is very energetic. It made me wonder why he wasn't asked to be the temporary replacement for Brian Johnson last year. Joel is a combination of Angus Young and Bon Scott

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."

Airboourne's debut album is straight out of the AC / DC school of classic rock n roll. The music is straight forward good time heavy rock that borders on metal. These guys tear it up and sound like they are having a great time doing it. The lyrics are all macho party rock, and the guitar solos straight and to the point, but these guys do what they do very well. This is a great one to crank up on your car stereo. If you like old school heavy party rock n roll that sound very similar to AC / DC you should really check these guys out.

This band is a return to pre-grunge/buzz/alternative garbage that has been on the rock radio stations for the past 20 years. It is about time! THIS IS REAL ROCK, NOT SEATTLE GRUNGE GARBAGE! If you miss the days of music actually sounding like they are having fun(of all sorts), this is a MAJOR BREATH OF FRESH AIR!

I bought this album think I would like a few songs and then would try to justify the $11.99 price for those songs. But when I popped this CD in, it stayed in. This album rocks from start to finish and all you want is to play it again. I can't say when the last time I heard an album the rocked the whole way through. The energy is extremely high and you feel like you can bench press a freakin car after you've just listened to it. This is a band truly dedicated to the meaning of Rock, nothing soft on this album, only for those who truly want to rock.

Airbourne is one of the best bands that I've heard for this genre of music. They are not from the 80s, but they'd drop right in. It's obvious where they have been influenced (AC/DC as an example), but they have their own sound and theme that sets them apart. Great album!

If you are a fan of AC/DC, Jackyl, Rose Tattoo, or even Accept, you gotta check these guys out!! This is rock n' roll is all about. No ballads here... just pure rock from start to finish. Songs like "Diamond In The Rough" is a complete gem and "Too Much Too Young, Too Fast" is a total anthem. Airbourne brings it... there's no doubt.
