AC/DC: Back in Black

Sound — 10
First of all, "Hells Bells" had a great intro, with the bell in the background really caught your attention. "Shoot To Thrill" has a catchy intro along with "Rock N Roll Ain't Noise Pollution" and "You Shook Me All Night Long." "Back In Black" and "You Shook Me All Night Long" have the best guitar solos on the album. Angus nailed it with his solos and with Malcolm and his powerful rhythm guitar to back it up. The bass was great and the drums were as good as they could be. Angus has done it again!

The lyrics were just as good as the guitars, if not better. With the nice chorus to "What Do You Do For Money Honey" and how the guitar is the same rythm as the lyrics on "Given The Dog A Bone." Brian Johnson filled in great for Bon Scott (RIP). Brian can really belt it so I give it a 5!

Overall Impression — 10
Overall this was the best of AC/DC. It is definetly better than how they began. It was even more amazing that they could go out there right after the death of Bon Scott and do something like "Back In Black." Every song on here rocks! My favorite were: "Hells Bells," "Shoot To Thrill," "What Do You Do For Money Honey," "Back In Black," "You Shook Me All Night Long," "Have A Drink on Me" and "Rock And Roll Ain't Noise Pollution." That's 7 of 10 songs. If you are even a little bit of an AC/DC fan this is your next CD to buy!
