Overview

Although AC/DC's popularity had decreased by the early '90s, the band still had a lot of life left in it. Arguably the Australian headbangers' strongest album in over half a decade, The Razor's Edge is quintessential AC/DC -- rowdy, abrasive, unapologetically fun metal full of blistering power chords, memorable hooks, and testosterone-driven lyrics. Lead singer Brian Johnson sounds more inspired than he had since 1983's Flick of the Switch, and lead guitarist Angus Young isn't about to take any prisoners on such hard-hitting material as "Shot of Love," the menacing title song, and the appropriately titled "Got You By the Balls." Although not quite in a class with Back in Black, Highway to Hell, or Let There Be Rock -- all of which would, for novices, serve as fine introductions to the distinctive band -- The Razor's Edge was a welcome addition to AC/DC's catalog.

This album has most likely the second most famous AC/DC song. Thunderstruck. Thnuderstruck, Fire Your Guns, Are You Ready, and those are just some of the songs on this album which are all amazing. Thunderstruck is only second best to Back In Black.

The album the Razor's Edge by AC/DC is a mix of heavy metal and hard rock. What an album this is! The song Thunderstruck starts it of and makes nice pound. The song will make you go to Edge not just any Edge, but The Razor's Edge!
