4.0 out of 5 stars A thumper of an album, but a bit tired, 27 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: No Guts, No Glory (Audio CD)
First of all I'd like to say I like this album, but not as much as I liked Running Wild. There is something about this release that's a bit tired - maybe they should have waited a bit longer before getting into the studio. I can't put my finger on it. However, like a previous reviewer said, the AC/DC connection just grows and its the less AC/DC-like songs that I prefer most on the album...although they all seem to have AC/DC hooks and licks.

I was hoping that more of Airbourne's own identity would come to the fore this time, their sound, but sadly not. It's not quite the step forward I was hoping for and I hate the track It Ain't Over until it's over, but there is still some excellent fist pumping, foot stomping, head banging tracks on here, such as Chewin' the Fat, No Way But the Hard Way, Get Busy Livin' - inspired by the movie Shawshank Redemption perhaps? - and Rattle your Bones on the bonus tracks.

Personally I prefer Airbourne's own production on the bonus tracks, it's cleaner and sharper than their the main album.

I'm a big AC/DC fan, so obviously this release goes down well with me. But I prefer Running Wild's immediacy to No Guts No Glory's repetitive sound. However, if you liked their first album and enjoy AC/DC you'll like and enjoy this. It's a good addition to your AC/DC collection, oops, I mean Airbourne collection! All joking aside, despite the obvious similarities Airbourne perform with such energy and enthusiasm, you gotta like them.

I remember a band called Krokus were once accussed of copying AC/DC, which I think a lot of the time they did. And they sucked for it. But Airbourne just pay great homage to that band, and their other influences - I'd just like to hear more of their others influences.

Krokus is a metal band from Switzerland and they copied some DC riffs. No comparison to Airbourne, Krokus copied all top rock bands to get acknowledged.
