4.0 out of 5 stars no guts,no glory,no growth either!, 7 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: No Guts, No Glory (Audio CD)
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

I thought the first album had greater similarities to Skid Row.

I agree this one is very AC/DC influenced and non the worst for it either.

Cant say i noticed any skid row influences on the debut,i'll need to listen again,i thought obviously AC/DC with a dash of Rose Tattoo,the new disc is good but its a concern that im highlighting that the band havent stretched themselves and brought a little originality.

Skid Row???? No idea where you are coming from with that. Seen Airbourne live last night and it was brilliant. But i do agree with most people, they have to come up with something different, a ballad or two. But i aint complaining. They are awesome.

I have to laugh. Bands cant win. If they stick to what they're good at, they get accused of not evolving, going nowhere, not taking any risks - and if they change their style they get told to go back to what they're good at!!!

This is an Airbourne album - straightforward ass kicking rock and roll. what else did you expect?!!.......
