AC/DC – Rock Or Bust
Huge thanks to the mighty Superdekes for letting me hear his copy of this record!
This is current AC/DC. Actually, if you know that sound, we could end this thing right there. But…
Those amazing, indelible riffs are still there and, at high enough volume (believe me, that’s how I played it), it still rocks damned hard! The title track (and the first single) is so much from the chiselled AC/DC template that you’d think no time had ever passed (and nothing bad had befallen the band) since their last record! All the tracks here are the same thing – c’mon, it’s AC/DC – but I heard some fun playful things, like Rock The Blues Away, which sounds like AC/DC covering John Mellencamp. Or Got Some Rock & Roll Thunder, the guitar for which (to me) sounds a bit like Eagles… It’s not a bad thing, it’s fun! Also, I definitely think Hard Times needs to be a single, that song burns!
Folks, this was exactly what we all needed. Yes!
Long may AC/DC reign! \m/ \m/
