15 Songs, 55 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Eight years is a mighty long time in the music world, but as AC/DC has proven time and time again–the rules of the rest of the world don't apply. After a nearly decade-long break, the band returned with a ferocious new batch of tunes. Black Ice is a heavy and hungry album that fits in perfectly in their long line of hard rock triumphs, from Back in Black and The Razor's Edge. Ragged, rough-edged, and uncompromising, the boys (okay, men) put together 15 new tracks and brought in famed producer Brendan O'Brien to ensure that their lean, uncluttered sound was maintained. Highlights this time out include the huge "Anything Goes," the propulsive "Big Jack" and "Rock 'n' Roll Train," which proved, alongside the full-size locomotive which was brought onstage, to be one of their 2008 world tour highlights.

Incredible!!

These guys are incapable of putting out a bad album.

Best album since The Razor's Edge

Black Ice isn't quite in league with Back In Black, but its a solid effort and one of the top five Brian Johnson albums. "Rock and Roll Train" is the best single since Thunderstruck, and "Big Jack", "War Machine", "Anything Goes" and the title song are all good tunes. Probably would have been better as a shorter, tighter collection, but there really aren't any bad songs, just a couple so-so ones that make the album tread water for a few tunes in the middle. Overall a good addition to the catalogue.
