Product Description

Product Description

Through a unique collaboration between Marvel Studios and Columbia Records, AC/DC’s music is featured in Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 2 , the sequel to the 2008 blockbuster film. AC/DC: Iron Man 2 features 15 classic AC/DC songs selected from ten of the band’s studio albums, ranging from 1976 to 2008.

BBC Review

Take a moment, now, and imagine the rock‘n’roll world without AC/DC. Without Highway to Hell, Back in Black and Let There Be Rock. Without Angus Young’s school uniform and goofy on-stage strutting. Without a band that’s overcome obstacles both personal and professional to deliver the goods time and again. Without a band so tightly stitched into the fabric of rock that to pick them loose has the whole leather jacket falling apart. Without a band happy to play the same role for nearly 40 years because they nailed it first time. Without that iconic logo.

It’s not a rock‘n’roll world I’d want to live in, that’s for sure. Whether you’re an AC/DC acolyte of several years’ standing, or a fair-weather fan partial to a boogie whenever your local rock DJ drops You Shook Me All Night Long, you can’t deny the feeling of glee this gang of good-times rabble-rousers stir within even the most conservative soul. Pump a fist, go on – it can’t be helped, and we’re all friends here. Sure, it’s big, dumb, formulaic fare that’s studied the same blueprint since the 1970s – but if it ain’t broke, why not channel several thousand volts through the thing and make it dance even harder?

Iron Man 2 is a compilation featuring several of AC/DC’s best-known songs alongside a selection that most likely aren’t immediately recognisable to the casual listener. It doubles, as its title and artwork are testament to, as the soundtrack to the forthcoming movie sequel to 2008’s Robert Downey Jr-starring comic book adaptation, Iron Man. If the second instalment follows the lead of its (very well received) predecessor, expect unadulterated eye-candy, the kind of rollercoaster experience delivered every blockbuster season – the kind of brash, boisterous movie that AC/DC’s music seems tailor-made for. It’s a marriage made in Hollywood heaven.

The classics here are just that: heavy-riffed and big-hearted rock‘n’roll essentials that every home should have. Back in Black just does not get old; likewise the closer, the evergreen anthem Highway to Hell. Of the less-ubiquitous numbers, Guns for Hire is a highlight of 1983’s Flick of the Switch LP, and T.N.T. dates back to their Australia-only second album of the same title. Younger listeners might find it all a bit clichéd, but remember: AC/DC are the originators, their imitators responsible for diluting the package’s potency. For those about to rock, raise another salute to your enduringly enthralling forefathers. --Mike Diver

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Compilation of AC/DC Hits 1 May 2010
By Spin
Format:Audio CD
In response to Marc's ridiculous slagging of the music world's greatest rock band, I must point out that this is not an AC/DC album, it is the soundtrack to Iron Man 2. True, it consists only of AC/DC tracks, but this no bad thing. The music is well suited to the fictional character, lifestyle and adventures of Marvel's Tony Stark/Iron Man. As for accusing AC/DC of commercialism, Marc obviously has no idea of who the band are or what they represent in the heavy rock world. Go back to sleep, Marc. And as for the remarks of A. McKenzie, (who unbelievably claims to be an AC/DC fan), that all but two tracks are AC/DC, I can only assume that he/she does not realise that the band had two vocalists and two stages of musical composition in thier career. Either that or he/she is listening to the wrong CD. Some fan, eh? In fact, all negative reviews of this CD have been put forward by those ignorant of the band. So here's the truth:
As for the album itself, it may be seen by some as a "Greatest Hits" album, but in fact the tracks were chosen to fit the screenplay and general mood of the film (For example "war machine", from AC/DC's latest album "Black Ice" was chosen for the character of War Machine, "Highway to Hell", from the album of the same name, was chosen to reflect Stark's descent into alcoholism, etc, etc). The songs on the CD reflect the storyline of the film, not, as some claim, the storyline of the bands career.If AC/DC did in fact release a Greatest Hits CD it would consist of four or five discs, if not their whole album catalogue! But this CD is a perfect disc for both Iron Man fans and anyone new to the genius of Angus and the boys. In fact, even AC/DC fans such as my humble self can enjoy this CD as a quick fix of that rarity called "guitar-based rock".

4.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to AC/DC 19 April 2010
By Nick Brett TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
As many have said, this is a great introduction to AC/DC for those who have not bought their back catalogue. Long term fans will have already been appeased with the delights of the recently released Black Ice and with luck this might increase sales of that CD too.

It's greatest hits by any other name, branded as the soundtrack to Iron Man II. It's a shame that it was released this way, I would have liked to have seen the band involved in selecting the songs and maybe slinging in the odd extra track. But taking it at face value, the songs are a good selection and will probably contain 80% of the songs any fan would have selected, the remaining 20% being down to personal preferences ( I would have liked to have seen Hells Bells included for instance).

So, if we forget the fact that fans will already have most of these, and forget the commercial aspects and just focus on the product. It is a good selection of songs that reflect just how good AC/DC are and should be recommended listening for those who want to dabble in the loud world of the Aussie rockers.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great intro 29 April 2010
By BD VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
In truth this 'soundtrack' isn't a proper ACDC 'best of' as there are obvious omissions, but if some new fans discover them via this, which maybe generates some future rock and roll heroes then this album is fine by me. Of course the 'purists' amongst us (myself included) would probably prefer that an ACDC 'greatest hits' offering wasn't as a result of a blatant marketing tool to promote a movie, but taken for what it is, and the mutual boost to ACDC this will undoubtedly provide, this album is a great listen for fans old and new.

So ACDC are once again top of the tree. A great 'comeback' album in the form of 'Black Ice', headlining Download this year and at the time of writing, this soundtrack album is number 1 in the British album charts, something which I find myself feeling very proud of. You may ask why, well my answer is that amongst an ever increasing sea of musical mediocrity, tedium and blandness that dominates our airwaves via safe unimaginative radio playlists, ACDC have come along and proved that throughout it all, good strong honest rock and roll will always prevail. We salute you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Iron Man and Metal Muthas 23 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
There has never been an AC/DC best of, so this soundtrack is the nearest thing to that. The band have a previous soundtrack, namely for the 'Maximum Overdrive' film. This album will present the band and hard rock music to a whole new audience and in that respect, does not deserve to take a pounding before it has even been released. This 5 star review is intended to balance out the earlier first review posted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marc, you're nuts 27 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
No, the band don't need the cash. And they have just brought us a new studio album and are still working their butts off on a global tour.
Don't you think it might have more to do with the film studio/record company being desperate to milk some cash?
Either way, it's a damn good intro to AC/DC, if you haven't got it all and been around for donkey's years like some of us.
No-one is being forced into buying this.......
I accidentally met Brian, and ended up meeting the band. They are multi-millionaires, but you would never know. They are not just the nicest rock stars I've met, but some of the nicest people too - honest. If you don't own any AC DC, but think you like the odd song you've heard, buy this CD. It'll make you grin, and ultimately late night when your friends come round and the drink flows - you'll be jumpin around the kitchen and striking rock star poses to the best hard rock tunes ever made. What more do ya want? Is Jack Black wrong? No.
Get on and party :)
