How many bands do you know that you can immediately recognize their sound from the first two notes of any song of theirs? And how many bands do you know that have whole albums in their discography that could easily be greatest hits compilations? Not that many, eh? AC/DC are back and they are powered up!

I went into it thinking it would turn out to be a mediocre album overall after hearing Shot In The Dark and not being all that impressed with it. The rest of the album is actually surprisingly good.

This is boring.
Same drum riff every fucking song (ok two songs were unique, but wtf), can't believe he came back just to die of boredom in that kit. Everything seems the same song.
Everything is so predictable.
On the other hand Brian voice is exceptional, also considering his age. I also like a lot guitars tones.
Unfortunately I really cannot enjoy all of this, I respect them being ACDC and what they achieved, that's all I can do.

Kudos to AC/DC for making a new record, but this is pretty bad even by their standards.

All I can say is that it's an AC/DC album. It sounds like AC/DC. I have always found their style way too predictable and boring, but that's just me. Could be worse, I guess.

You've got a lot of guts. Let's see what they look like.

This is better as last 2 albums. When was this rekordet or written? To me its 80's album sounds lyrics , riffs, composition its pure 80's , Its even better as few their songs of 90's period. Killer , simply killer !!!!

Your usual AC/DC. Not as bad as I would have expected though for a bunch of old dudes.

How so? Their classic works are full of energy and youthfulness, hard to maintain that when you're approaching 70.

the way you used your words, it seemed to me unfair, like old dudes cannot create good music or something.
My bad if I'm wrong and that was not your intent.

I would definitely say that I would be much more surprised with a good hard rock album from a bunch of olds guys than one from some 20 year olds that are still partying everyday and every night. Just look at Metallica

Just another ACDC album. Through the Mists of Time is the only track that I heard twice.

Edit: Oh maybe I am wrong coz I tried again and again and this time I got hooked up with couple of songs more.
