Album Review

While there's certainly a lot to be said about innovation, a band like Airbourne really makes you step back and appreciate the simplicity of the old ways. Cut from the same cloth as AC/DC and Krokus, the Australian band return with Black Dog Barking, their third album of unabashedly badass hard rock. Though the band might owe a serious debt to their forefathers, they repay it with plenty of swagger, grit, and sleaze, serving up an album of high-octane rock & roll that's built for pure enjoyment rather than chin-stroking scrutiny. The thing about simplicity, though, is that it's not always as easy as it looks. While lots of bands have tried and failed to capture the black magic worked by AC/DC so many years ago, Airbourne succeed here by sticking to the basics, tapping into that perfect ratio of bluesy riffing, ripping solos, and straight-ahead no frills drumming that makes for an amazing listening experience when applied at maximum volume. While you'd think that, after three albums of it, Airbourne's hard rock homage would get a bit old, but in an ever-changing world the familiar can not only be comforting, but refreshing. In a musical landscape where the past is constantly recycled and reshaped into something new, and album like Black Dog Barking is like a safe haven for hard rock purists, offering up a safe place for people to wear jean jackets and pump their fists without irony or judgment.

Customer Reviews

Black Dog Barking-Airbourne

Relentless! well produced & full of anthems to rock!

The Black Dog Is Angry, Hungry and Relentless

So three years on from No Guts No Glory we are faced with yet another Airbourne release, their third studio album since 2007's Running Wild.

This could be their best effort, having only listened to the album 5 times through only time will tell. What I can say though is the 10 song slab of rock that is on offer here is fabulous and I can see all of these songs going down really well live. All of the songs have strong hooks and choruses that you won't forget after a couple of listens.

This is anything but thinking man's rock and thank goodness for that as rock 'n' roll is meant to be fun.

Stand out tracks include 'Ready To Rock, No One Fits Me Better Than You, Back In The Game and Woman Like That.

And songs such as Cradle To the Grave show Airbourne's continued growth as band with some unexpected song breakdowns.

Overall another solid effort, catch them live in this country while you can as their star is on the rise overseas and they may not continue to get back here that often.

Best Aussie rock band in eons.

Biography

Formed: 2004 in Warrnambool, Australia

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Airbourne are a straightforward rock band in the Aussie pub rock tradition of AC/DC, the Angels, and Rose Tattoo: four guys with beers in hand who would rather die than be caught wearing a pink shirt. The brothers Joel and Ryan O'Keeffe grew up in the country town of Warrnambool, with a collection of classic Australian rock albums stolen from their uncle. When everyone around them was listening to contemporary music, they were firmly entrenched in the music of the '70s and '80s they longed to re-create....
