Over AC/DC'S career many fans have argued the toss between which has been their finest hour: the final Bon Scott album "Highway To Hell" or the Brian Johnson debut album "Back In Black"

Don't get me wrong, i would say without a doubt that both of these AC/DC album are classics. However, my favourite AC/DC of all time has always been "The Razors Edge"

This to me has always been one of guys finest album which has often been highly underated.

With classics such as "Fire Your Guns" "Money Talks" and "The Razors Edge" this classic albums see's the band on top form and Brian's voice as crisp and dirty as ever.

Of course to even consider reviewing this album without commenting on "Thunderstruck" would be like discussing the world cup 1966 without mentioning Goeff Hurst. "Thunderstruck" is in my and i'm sure in many AC/DC fans, the track which transformed AC/DC from stadium fillers to true stadium gods. The first time i heard "Thunderstruck" live was when i went to the Monsters Of Rock 91 tour which the boys was headlining. Since the group first played the track live, it has never left set list on any tour the band has performed to date.

This album is Angus and the boys at their very best!

I am going to go against the majority rock lovers in the world and say that this is ac/dc's strongest album, even better than back in black! While back in black is a fantastic album with many great songs most notably hells bells, back in black and you shook me all night long i have to say that this comes out on top

Everything here is vintage ac/dc; stunnig angus riffs, screeching brian johnson vocals and rock soild bass and rhythm guitar. Brian Johnson's voice may have deteriorated a bit by the turn of the decade, but in a way that makes him sound so good, particulary on the bit at the start of thunderstruck. That goes perfectly with Angus's riff. The rest of the album is just as good with some standouts including the super catchy moneytalks and thumping, powerful title track.

All the ingredients for a fantastic ac/dc album are here with so many memorable riffs, clever lyrics and stunning solos. This was actually the first ac/dc album where the young brothers were the only songwriters, without brian as a co-lyricist. It has to be said they pull it off superbly well. While their lyrics were probably stronger in the era of the late Bon Scott, with no disrespect to him I prefer Brian Johnson, as i seem to prefer ac/dc's more hard rock style that they have adopted since brian came rather than their more punk style. That being said they were still amazing in the bon scott days.

Apart from back in black this was probably their most important album. They had stuttered a bit since for those about to rock and rock seemed to be running a bit dry. But they stuck to their guns and they didn't sell out. This was an essential factor in them making such a good album. For me, this album ranks with the greats- appetite for destruction, led zeppelin II and IV, the bends, obviously back in black and now muse's black holes and revalations. Whoever you are, this is a must have for your cd collection.

This was something of a relief coming off the back of their 3 previous efforts which were patchy at best. This is still patchy but is far better, containing even a couple of now-considered classics. However there is still a whiff of the 80s production (no power and all sheen) and still a few too many 'party' tracks that seem to sound a little too similar to each other.

It starts excellently with 'Thunderstruck'. A little bit of the old, a little of the new. It has become a classic of their later era and it will probably be instantly recognisable. 'Fire Your Guns' follows and is something of a filler but rises above that category with some nifty drumming and a catchy tune akin to AC/DC of old. 'Money Talks' is AC/DC new. It is similar in tone to 'Who Made Who', is unashamedly made as a single and is absolutely brilliant. The title track surprised me. It is understated, brooding and a little dark. And it works very well. Something they should do more of. 'Mistress for Christmas' is back to the band from the 80s but it is such a silly track and is so simple that all is forgiven. It rocks, just not too hard. As does 'Rock Your Heart Out'. From here on it is pretty much the same template of party track after party track until the final 2. And they are very well crafted songs that hark back to the Highway to Hell and Back in Black era which ends the album well.

So it begins very well and ends very well but there is a bit of fat inbetween, making this really half good and half average. As always the best place to start with AC/DC is the beginning or near to it; well any of their first 7 international albums really. This was good, but better was just around the corner...

After the straight-shooting classic that was "Back in Black," AC/DC had a bumpy ride for much of the 1980s. They continued to release solid albums, but their sales began to dip after 1981's "For Those About to Rock We Salute You." But 1990 was the year the Australian boys reclaimed the hard rock throne with their tough album "The Razors Edge" (hold the apostrophe). That record blasted to Number Two and went multiplatinum in a year when folks like MC Hammer dominated the charts. Produced by the late Bruce Fairbairn (who also worked with Bon Jovi, Poison, and Aerosmith), "The Razors Edge" may not be a classic, but it roars with energy and spunk. Like any AC/DC record, this CD revolves around three themes: sex, drugs (with booze), and rock and roll. The hits on this CD are the rousing "Thunderstruck" and the top 40 hit "Moneytalks," but other killer cuts are the funny "Got You By the Balls," "Are You Ready," the ever-festive "Mistress for Christmas," and "Fire Your Guns." Like Robert John "Mutt" Lange, Fairbairn's production is a bit on the polished side, but it doesn't compromise AC/DC's sound. Angus Young's guitar still rocks, and Brian Johnson's bark continues to roar in all its shrill glory. I'm not a metalhead by any means, but I know a good album when I hear one. "The Razors Edge" is just that.
