Customer Review

on 17 July 2010
I've just got round to upgrading to this remastered version of Back In Black, after acquiring all of the classic AC/DC remasters over the last few years. Having bought them in various formats during the 1980's and 90's I picked up these versions sporadically since 2003.

The actual remastering sounds great, but the fact I left it till last confirms what I always felt really, and that is slight bemusement as to why Back In Black is held in such monumentally high regard in comparison to other AC/DC albums. It is, in my opinion, a brilliant album (see the gushing reviews of others for more praise), but I've never thought of it as the magnum opus of AC/DC. Totally subjective of course, but in an effort to get a bit of perspective and stop this monstrous commercial juggernaut from stealing the thunder of other great albums by the band, pre-1980 albums especially, I feel I should only give it four stars.

If you're an AC/DC fan, you shouldn't need any encouragement regarding Bon Scott era offerings, but just in case you're thinking Back In Black is indeed the pinnacle of what this great band ever achieved, check out those earlier albums and you may think again.
