in a nutshell, the new AC/DC; memorable hooks, killer riffs and catchy lyrics about boozing and shagging.

After a few listens to this, some irritations become clear.

The vocalist's range is limited from 'shouting' to 'shouting louder' - and any 'song' consists of simply alternating between the two.

The lyrics are clumsy at best. For example, in Cheap Wine & Cheaper Women, the line 'Women come and go, they never do remain' grates with me every time I hear it - the 'do' awkwardly inserted to make the line scan.

I can understand why the guitar riff based tunes have been compared to AC/DC, but the complete package is far from being anything like them.

Here's hoping their next album will be much improved.

At first hearing, say to the opening track, 'Stand Up For Rock and Roll', you'd be forgiven for thinking that you were listening to a song but AC/DC, but no, it's Airbourne, four Aussies who make good old fashioned, simple rock-and-roll music. I bought 'Runnin' Wild' shortly after it's release in 2008, and as I was going through a heavy rock phase, was so pleased that there was a new group of young men out there who were bringing this kind of music back to the attention of the public and into the charts. I still play this debut today, and it rarely lets me down in lifting my mood. It's perfect for rocking out to with a beer and a cigarette. The energy that these guys up into their work is amazing.

Catchy-as-hell, very old school, and yet, a breath of fresh air. Highlights include 'Diamond in the Run', 'Blackjack', 'Hell Fire', and 'Too Much, Too Young, Too Fast'. I was lucky enough to see these lads perform at the Arena in Newcastle when they were supporting Iron Maiden, and they are even better live. If you can, go and see them. With bands like Airbourne, hard rock isn't dead.

You know what - I sat thinking of what to write here and couldn't put it in words... so looking for inspiration, I'm listening to Stand Up for Rock'n'Roll as I write this and I can't come up with any words that Amazon will print...

Damn its good...

Thats the last c.d. I buy based solely on amazon reviews . How many of you people are a) Related to the band , or b) Australian ? - most of you - surely !
Dont get me wrong , I`m all for new metal bands , and its not half bad , but five stars ! c`mon please ! How many stars would you give to the real deal like "Highway to hell" or "Back in Black" ? - fifty five ??
The trouble with it is , when you base your style so directly onto another group (AC/DC-obviously !) then your going to have to accept the inevitable comparisons - and basically , there isnt one ! one guy reveiwing the aussie import version actually said that this is what D.C would have sounded like if Bon had lived - HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH - actually , thats not funny !!!!!
Bon was a complete one off - a modern day poet and genius . The guy from Airbourne`s voice is , well.... monotonous really - in fact by the third track its starting to get on your nerves a bit .
Some of the riffs are good and catchy , but the whole thing just lacks a little bit of sophistication . Anyway dont let me put you off , if its your thing - go for it , but at least listen to it first !!!
