AC/DC: Fly On The Wall

Sound — 6
The sound is the worst of the AC/DC albums I own (High Voltage to Fly On The Wall). Typical AC/DC beat, with more distortion, solos are starting to sound extremely repetitive by the 4rh song or so. Although I've never like AC/DC's Brian Johnson stuff, all the same! I give it four 'cause the guitars still make your head bang.

Lyrics — 8
The lyrics weren't very catchy ('cause I can't hear them). The lyrics go well with the music but all the choruses have same melody/beat and gets annoying for me. Although Brian is a pretty good singer and he works well with the lyrics.

Overall Impression — 6
The overall impression for me of this album is that AC/DC have lost a lot of thier creativity and Brian Johnson wants to sing about the same things and not be heard. This is a very mediocre AC/DC alum and very mainstream pop music like really. If it were stolen I wouldn't care I'd go buy Jailbreak or get a Rush CD or something.
