Format: Audio CD
This 2005 album shows ACDC at there ballbreaking best with the title song Ballbreaker being one of the bands heaviest riffs in year's with lead singer Brian Johnson roaring voice delivering a powerful vocal.

With rock classics such as Hard As A Rock the sleazy Cover You In Oil to hard rockin Hail Ceaser & The Furor being the two standout tracks on the album.

As The Razors Edge seemed to have a more polished feel to the album this album has a,more down & dirty blues feel to it which proves when it comes to blues rock this band still deliver in spades.

Now remastered the album now sounds better than it ever & comes in a gatefold sleeve complete with a collectors booklet & is well worth adding to your rock collection.

Another Stunning ACDC album.

Timelord Rating.
9/10

Well. This came as a surprise. After starting with High Voltage and absorbing every one of their albums since in order, I was rather wary of this one. Why? Because having trawled through the musical wastelands of Flick of the Switch to Blow Up Your Video I had run out of faith. How happy was I to find that Ballbreaker was both new, regained the talent and swagger of their older material and sounded completely different to anything they had done prior? Very. In a nutshell the sound is, while evidently AC/DC, stripped back to the bone. It sounds dusty and underproduced although it has been produced to death (with the ever-awesome talent of multiple career-reincarnator, Rick Rubin). And the tunes let themselves known slowly. This takes more effort to listen to than any other AC/DC album but is better for it. There are no real standout tracks as the album works exactly as an album. There is no filler. This is how the band should sound. It has rock, blues, country, grunge and sounds like the Kings of Leons' grandad.

I won't go into every track but my favourites are 'Hard As a Rock'(the introduction to their new/old sound), 'Cover You In Oil (ridiculously simple but so good), 'The Furor' (creepy and bluesy), 'Whiskey on The Rocks' (angular and dirty), 'Hail Caesar' (the closest thing to a single on here) and the clear winner: 'Burnin Alive' - possibly the best AC/DC track ever. Just a simple lick, a lot of soul and more integrity than I thought they'd ever have. A stunning track.

Whether they'll sound this good again is unclear but in a way this is all they need.

Now this is more like it! Probably the best DC album since Flick of the Switch (a personal favourite of mine), Ballbreaker marks a return to the glory days.

Almost every track is a gem, with only three showing signs of being anything less than brilliant (Love Bomb, Caught With Your Pants Down and Whiskey On The Rocks). Even then, the album does what an AC/DC album should do: you put it on and get lost in the boogie. Standout tracks include Hard As A Rock, Cover You In Oil, Boogie Man, Burnin' Alive (surely one of the best songs the boys have ever written) and the fantastic title track. And with lyrical subtlety *ahem* harking back to the Bon Scott era (how does "Honey roll over and lettuce on top" grab you?) you're onto a winner with this album.

Rick Rubin's production is flawless. I've heard that the band had problems with Rubin during recording, but whatever problems there were don't show. The man really knows how to get an artist's best work onto tape.

And of course the *ahem* Rudderless (sorry) years are over: Phil Rudd is back in his rightful place on the drumstool. This is what AC/DC should sound like: a solid but understated rhythm section underpinning warm but not over-distorted guitars, Angus's trademark vibrato singing over the top and Brian Johnson's gargling-with-boiling-oil yelp providing the cherry on the icing on the creme de la cake.

That things got even better on their next album, the sublime Stiff Upper Lip, is not at all surprising. This album is brilliant, a real return to form. Easily as good as Back In Black and highly - very highly -recommended.

Having been fortunate enough to capture the bands performance in Manchester on the BallBreaker world tour'96.I rushed out the following day & bought the BallBreaker cd,raced home & played it & when I closed my eyes I felt like I was still in the arena!!My ears were ringing for days!! The polished & commercial Razors Edge cd has been replaced with a more down & dirty blues feel. The opening track,"hard as a rock",is a superb melodic track that reminds me of the same groove as "Sin City".Track 2,"Cover you in oil", is a real slow burning sleazy blues number that you could well imagine the late great Bon Scott slurring to!! Even "The boogie man" has a dirty gritty feel to it that again you could imagine Bon singing it in his day. All 11 cuts on this cd are completely listenable,which cant be said for earlier AC/DC efforts. in my mind though the album titled track"BallBreaker",is the standout point as the band go for broke with the heaviest crunching riff they have produced in years!! Johnson hollers his guts out with ferocious intensity which is something i dont think he's done since 1984's "Flick of the switch". Everything about this cd is good,even the packaging is superb,with the album cover depicting Angus Young strutting Across a huge ball in between some gothic setting!! well worth buying,in my opinion.
