Biography

There’s something about the kind of potent rock and roll fury that Airbourne cranks out, all cylinders firing, that makes you want to chug a beer straight down your throat and punch the air as though it’d touched your wife inappropriately. It sounds crude, we admit. But that’s the thing about these Aussie pub rock rebels. Their music, like new album No Guts. No Glory., are ... Read more in Amazon's Airbourne Store

Product Description

CD Description

No Guts. No Glory. is the second album from hard rocking Aussies Airbourne, and includes the single "Get Busy Livin'". Inspired by the likes of Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy, Angel City, Rose Tattoo, AC/DC, and Motorhead, Airbourne have been waving the rock and roll flag for Australia since 2003's debut album, "Runnin' Wild".

BBC Review

The hotly-anticipated follow-up to Airbourne’s barnstorming 2007 debut does not disappoint. It should also come as no surprise to anyone that No Guts. No Glory. is Runnin’ Wild part two. After all, the Aussie rockers set out their stall in considerable style, and it’s way too early to be moving the merchandise up-market. In the world of hard rock and heavy metal, originality is not particularly prized. The real treasure lies in forging a fistful of the hoariest old clichés into glorious, mind-blowing, max-volume gold. It’s harder than it sounds, but these guys have it down.

Rough, tough and tighter than spray-on jeans, the bad lads from Warrnambool, Victoria are taking the explosive, in-your-face energy of fellow countrymen AC/DC and Rose Tattoo to a new generation. Their fusion of rock, blues and boogie is instantly infectious, and if preserving the past is their sole purpose, it’s a noble one.

Delivering cheap thrills with no questions asked, No Guts. No Glory. is an exuberant celebration of youthful verve, vitality and, inevitably, rebellion. No Way But the Hard Way, Blonde, Bad and Beautiful, Back on the Bottle: the song titles alone tell booze-drenched and sometimes sordid tales of hard rockin’, hard drinking and generally having nothing left to lose. Musically, it’s always all and never nothing. Bottom of the Well is the closest they ever come to a change of pace, and it’s no ballad.

Fronted by lovable lunatic Joel O'Keeffe, Airbourne’s success has largely been built on their bulldozing live show. The stage is their natural habitat, where they reign supreme amid a tantalizing scent of danger. No great shock, then, that they’ve yet to find a way to bottle the magic for mass consumption. This raucous collection of three-minute knee-tremblers, however, is as close as it gets. Swilling whiskey and spitting gravel, over-driven and over here, this is aural Prozac for the 21st century. --Greg Moffitt

Make no mistake this is a fine, energetic, lively and fun album. The problem is you know exactly what you are going to get so that by the end, and this is more true of the deluxe edition, it all sort of blends into one conglomorate of noise. It's a good noise mind you but I will be intrigued as to what this band can do for their third album because they have surely mined this seam to death.

Some of the other reviewers are obviously quite correct with the AC/DC comparisons and the band are more than willing to admit this, but I detect more than a little influence of Slade with this lot especially with the vocals.

So all in all this is fine as far as it goes but don't listen to this if you expect subtlety or new ideas.

I purchased Airbourne's first album after only hearing the title track, and I absolutely loved it - I am 18 years of age and half Australian, so to hear an entire album like that was a sign to me that there was some good left in music!

So without hesitation, I bought this album not listening to a single track. And WHAT an album! Normally I would pick out certain tracks as my favourites, but I just can't this album is consistent head bangin', foot stampin' rock and roll. I personally think Joel O'Keefe is a fantastic front man, and he definitely gets his energy and enthusiasm through the speakers with his roaring vocals and screaming guitar solos!

I will say this, if you are a fan of new and original sounds then you might struggle to like this at first, but I am certain if you liked the old school rock n' roll of the the 70's then it will definitely grow on you. It is just how it used to be in the old days; a WALL of Marshall amps, a few guitars, some drums, no effects and just raw sound and energy.

Much like the first album this is still very riff based with plenty of guitar solos, heavy bass and pure drums. And although some say they are very ACDC, they most definitely have there own style and sound. You can't pick out an Airbourne song that sounds specifically like an ACDC song. They are doing it there own way - Aussie Rock N Roll! Don't, however, be fooled into thinking it's just a bunch of drunk Aussie guys smashing out some music... The majority of the songs you can tell have been well thought out during the writing process, and very well played during the recording. Also, I HAVE to comment on Airbourne's lyrics (I am speaking for both albums here), all of Airbourne's lyrics fit each song superbly and quite often make you laugh.

well done amazon ordered this a few days ago and it arrives 3 days prior to official released,superb.I have had a couple of days to listen and that it is a good album is not in question,however its not as good as the debut and most songs are basically interchangeable.

Airbourne have went lock stock and barrel for the Ac/Dc comparisons ,right down to the Angus Young guitar solo's.When does immitation become parody?Airbourne really need to branch out and develop their own sound or they will lose momentum

Pretty much every song follows the same pattern,booming drums,sing along chorus,emulating mid 70's Ac/Dc and after a while it becomes samey,there are no 'Ride On's here,at times there is the whiff of one trick pony.

If you want no frills rock n roll then this is the disc for you,it is great but i was hoping for more,some progression,i like Airbourne but it would be a pity if the disappear amid criticism that they dont have their own style.their next album really has to take some chances

Forget about comparisons, whats been done before, or what might happen in the future. This is a great rock album. You want no frills, heads down, un pc, 70's/80's rockin then this is for you. These guys currently fly the flag for uncomplicated goodtime headbanging. Shure its a bit samey in places but they've have found their niche and they aint givin it up without a fight. You want progression, growth then go listen to Marillion! AC/DC, Status Quo, Whitesnake etc all found their "sounds" and have pretty much stuck to it with great success. Airbourne are a young band with tonnes of energy, and attitude that will keep a smile on the faces of rockers young and old for years to come. On the first album they said "Stand up for Rock n Roll" - they're walkin it like they're talkin it. Go and see them on the tour this month you will not be dissapointed. As for the album its an absolute must have.

Its a great album don't get me wrong. I agree with the other reviewers so far! If you liked Airbourne the first time round then you'll like this! But if you're like me & you were blitzed by them first time round then you might find the tracks a little samey but as has been said before its good samey!

I haven't been disappointed but its just hard to beat Runnin Wild!

Having been stunned (for the first time in many years) by the first album and utterly blown away by the band live (Dundee Fat Sams, seeing as you ask) I was expecting big things from this record.

I didn't get big things. I got a formulaic album that seems to have been rushed, and painted by numbers. And that's not just the cover, which is surely among the poorest efforts ever.

I read an interview in Classic Rock that the guys had been to see Rhino Bucket and enjoyed them. This is hugely apparent ... something tells me they rather liked the Bucket's "Get Used To It."

If it's AC/DC clones you want ... go and get the first two Rhino Bucket albums, where the singer even sounds like Bon. Airbourne are naturally more akin to Rose Tattoo, but seem to have taken on board the fact that AC/DC are getting on a bit and their slot will be open soon for a new band to fill. To me, they're trying too hard to replicate that sound and it just sounds contrived now. They are nowhere near the standard of Bon-era DC - many AC/DC soundalikes have tried and failed over the years.

Very disappointed that a band I thought would be massive appear to have found their comfort zone already. Unless they wise up, they'll soon end up playing Pontins holiday camp mini-festivals like all the other washed up "nearly-were" rockers.

The UK Tour doesn't help - rather than taking the music even further to the masses in dues-paying fashion, they've trimmed back and headed for the centres of population. Inverness, Aberdeen and Dundee all should've been on the schedule - that's the way to win support on the ground. We really appreciate when bands make the effort to head further north than Edinburgh and Glasgow.
