Back in black,
This review is from: Black Dog Barking (Special Edition) (Audio CD)
After the fantastic debut album 'Running Wild', follow up release 'No Guts, No Glory' didn't quite keep the momentum rolling.
Not that it was a bad set of songs, it just didn't sound focused and wasn't a huge improvement on what had come before it.
'Black Dog Barking' (awful title aside) is almost flawless in comparison.
Anthemic choruses, instantly memorable riffs and well crafted songs hear Airbourne sounding like they're having fun again.
Maybe without the added pressure of following a truly great release, they actually relaxed and enjoyed writing and recording these songs.
If you love simple, no-frills melodic hard rock (the type AC/DC used to make) - turn this up to 11 and enjoy.
