Sound — 10
Overall a great sound.Classic AC/DC sounds: heavy guitar from the Young brothers, simple yet heavy drums that is the glue of AC/DC's music, and a driving bass provided by Cliff Williams. Yes, all classic AC/DC, exept for one thing, the voice. Brian Johnson, the replacement of original singer Bon Scott, who died of choking on his own vomit earlier that year. But overall a great debut for Johnson, and a ground-breaking record for rock legends AC/DC.

Good lyrics, classic AC/DC "verse, chorus, verse, chorus" lyrics. An amazing debut for Brian Johnson, and a big change for AC/DC. They went from a raspy singing scottish showman, to a young man from england who screams like a fifteen ton truck has been dropped on his foot. Although you can't understand him all of the time, he's still amazing.
Overall Impression — 10
Easily AC/DC's best. It takes a ton of courage and strength to release a brand new album with a brand new singer just months after your singers death. Like them or not, you have to admit, they really pulled up their boots on this one. For all you die hard Bon Scott fans/ Brian Johnson haters, and I know there are some of you out there, you also have to admit, Brian Johnson did a hell of a job on this one.
