It is an incredible irony that AC/DC, while being accused of having made the same record 14 times have one album ("Back in Black") that has sold over twenty million copies, and this record that almost no one knows about. It came along at a rather turbulent time for the lads: Phil Rudd was out from behind the drum kit (replaced by Simon Wright) for reasons that were murky at best, record execs were copying the AC/DC brand of music and handing it off to rank amateurs who were more interested in hair and make-up than playing, and Richard Ramirez was giving the already pissed-off religious right something to get really mad about by blaming the band for his killing spree. All in all, not the best time to be a member of AC/DC. Looking back now, it's somewhat difficult for me to understand how the music simply didn't speak for itself. "Shake Your Foundations" and "Sink the Pink" stand as two of the finest produced tracks in the whole AC/DC cannon. The undicovered gems "Stand Up," "Back in Business," "Danger" and the title track are all fine examples of the boys cranking the amps up to 11 and kicking out some good-time riffs. Some have complained that Brian's voice began to slip here, but of course this begs the question when in the hell was his voice not on the verge of slipping? Soaring vocals are in the R&B bin. If you're reading this, I probably don't have to convince you to buy this album, but if you loved "Back in Black" and wish that it was twenty track instead of ten, well, here's one that'll make you smile.Was this review helpful?
