I remember this album coming out to the predictable press slating, with barely an acknowledgement of the band's bold decision to continue with a new vocalist in place of the then recently deceased Bon Scott. And it WAS a brave move; Scott was a legendary singer and writer, and any new guy had huge shoes to fill. The fact that, 24 years later, Brian Johnson is STILL the lead singer of AC/DC today shows how well he did in taking on one of the toughest gigs in rock.
But what of this album, the debut from the new boy? Opening with the slow burning 'Hell's Bells', the ringing of the bell and of the opening guitar riff lulls you into a false sense of security before the hammer comes down - once the main riff kicks in you know the guys are going to deliver.
'Back in Black' is one of those rare albums whose every track hits the spot - from the hard rockin' 'Shoot to Thrill', to the simply awesome title track, and through to the two hit singles (You Shook Me All Night Long and Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution) the quality never lets up. If you do not pick your air guitar up at least once during this album, then rock and roll is not for you!
Although AC/DC have continued to tour and record up to the present day, they must know that this album was their masterpiece. They still play many songs from this album in their live set, a testament to its enduring appeal.
Their subsequent albums never recaptured this glory fully, although they have made some good music since, but any band would be proud to have made one album as consistently strong as 'Back in Black'.
If you consider yourself a rock fan, be it old school or new/nu style, if you like guitar based heavy music of any kind you simply must own this album. Utterly magnificent.

If you've never heard this album then do yourself a favour and get hold of a copy asap. It's not heavy metal, it's blues-based rock in a classic vein. Even girlfriends who don't like heavy guitar music have always dug this album, it's THAT good. As most people have said, there isn't a bad song on the whole album. I'd go further, there is no need to even mention bad songs! Every song on this LP is truly out of the top drawer. The riffs & solos are absolutely superb, you won't hear better guitar playing in this genre ANYWHERE. Each riff is memorable, each verse, each chorus, each solo...there is no filler here, it's a masterpiece. It's like they spent 20 years on it!

What can i say that hasnt arleady been said a zillion times about this album? This is album is so goddamned catchy, and is so much fun to listen to. It's just good ol' hard rock n roll, which we have come to love and expect from AC/DC. Well, each song on this album from the first track to the last one is a treat and features great riffs, fun lyrics and cool solos from Angus. And always there is tight and precise rythym guitars from malcolm and phil rudd provides a good beat and not much to say about cliff williams except he does what is expected of him. And the vocals. The department sadly tainted with tragedy, yet is the highlight of this album. Whilst you cannot compare Bon Scott with Brian johnson, you can certainly say the torch is passed on to someone equally worthy. Brian provides a great and inspired performance here. oh, ofcourse the the track "back in black" itself is reason enough to buy this album. An absolute must for hard rock fans and for music fans in general. AC/DC fans who dont have this album should just be ashamed of themselves. enjoy.

With AC/DC's entire line of albums being re-issued, and after excellent reviews in Total Guitar, I decided to chance £11 on this album, despite the fact I couldn't remember the last song of theirs I'd heard, and the fact my stepmum can't stand them. I bought it more for Angus Young's playing style, which I'd heard so much about. Described by the legendary Zakk Wylde as "the blues on steroids", Young's solos are, basically, the simple things done very, very well. The solo to What Do you Do For Money Honey is particularly refreshing to listen to, even if you aren't sick of endless fancy stuff.
I was surprised at the fact that I didn't find Johnson's high-pitched voice annoying. Despite not demonstrating a large vocal range, he delivers the songs superbly. The rest of the band is good in support, especially Angus's brother Malcolm, who actually plays a lot of the riffs.
In all, this is a good album even if you haven't heard any AC/DC songs before. For budding guitarists like myself, Young's style is interesting to listen to, and proves that you don't need effects pedals and multi-FX units to sound good. He simply plugs his guitar into a Marshall stack and that's it. Inspirational.

This is a work of complete and utter genius. From the opening chimes of Hells Bells onward, it never lets up for a second. Unlike most albums, there's not a bad track on it; indeed the tracks presented here are uniformly excellent, with lyrics that focus on the rock staples of hard drink, hard women, sex, crime and (of course) hell, all coupled together with lascivious diversions and metaphors. The band work as one, producing original and energetic sounds that stand up to repeated listening. It's hard to fault it, but if I had a criticism, it would be that the sound has slightly more studio polish than the band's earlier work, but to my mind this does not detract form its quality or worth.

This album is a synch to recommend.
