℗ 1980 Leidseplein Presse B.V.
Back In Black Tracklist:
This is my favorite album I own on ITunes, and I own A LOT. It goes from Rainbow to Led Zeppelin to The Beatles, to even Cactus., Metallica, Anthrax, And even Great White to just name a few artists. Surprisingly, none of these artists albums ever really impressed me. (Except Led Zeppelin, they blew me away with Led Zeppelin II) When I found out about AC/DC, and I bought this album and Highway to Hell, I realized this was the band for me. Then I bought their least notable albums like Powerage, High Voltage, and Flick The Switch, and I loved those. Anyway, this album is incredible, and is one my favorite records ever.
This band is instantly recognized and recommended by me to anyone who really wants good 80’s rock. Or even if someone is a pop head, or rap fan, and you are having trouble getting off that, this is one way to do it. I have listened too many times, and I have not lost interest. Not too heavy, but just enough to get me in the mood. ROCK ON 🤘!!!!
I will only write a review when truly inspired and Back-n-Black does just that. My kid's kids will know this rocks from the first time they hear it. I suspect it will pass Thriller by then to be the best selling album ever. When you listen to the 8th best song repeatedly, you know you can't go wrong with this album
I bought this record back in 1982 after listening to Shook me all night long over and over at a friends house. I played it to death. I still have it and know where are the skips and where I have to nudge the needle to keep it from repeating, I love every song. Thank you iTunes for giving me the opportunity to purchase and listen to one of my favorite albums of all time
The Thunder from Down Under is on iTunes, and they're Back in Black! This has got to be AC/DC's best album yet, with the opening track Hells Bells(my favorite AC/DC song), shoot to thrill, the title track, and you shook me all night long. Buy this album! ⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️
There are many great giants in rock n' roll. AC/DC, is a mega god, and the proof is in this album. Every track on this album is hardhitting, and doesn't slow down in speed. The opening track, "Hell's Bells" sums it all up of what this listening experience will be.
Music could of came out today & done very well. Working music, just gears you up to take on any project like it was nothing. You'll be out mowing the lawn, raking the leaves, & power dustin the driveway singing to the top of your lungs Back In Black!
The I-Tunes review hit the nail on the head. This is the best second act in music history. It's a classic hard rock album and a fitting tribute to former front man Bon Scott. Every AC/DC album is packed full of tunes that always wake me up and get my blood pumping. Their songs actually increase my focus and my motivation and make for great driving music and this album is possibly the quintessential example. If you had to pick one album to stand as a textbook on AC/DC, this would probably be it. It has the most hits and the strongest average song rating of any AC/DC album. There's almost never a throwaway on any of their albums, but even Back In Black's non-hits are really strong. I was very impressed when i recently reveiwed this album in it's entirety to find that all of the songs were awesome - not just the one's i've heard before. Lots of people point out that their music sounds the same - especially post Bon Scott (I actually prefer Johnson's vocals), but it's a formula that works. And that's something that just isn't true for most bands. These guys are so talented that they could sing the phone book and it would sound great. And they do sound different to a discerning ear. This album proves that they can have a bluesy side with great effect as well. As I said, this album has the strongest average star rating of any AC/DC album. It's got two 5 star songs in Shoot to Thrill and Shook Me, six 4 star songs, only two 3 star songs and no throwaways.
You probably were confused why this album gets a one star. It doesn't, but I'm trying to get your attention for those of you looking for a flaw with this album: there are none. Whether you are a hard rocker or not, this album has got to be one of your favorites. There are so many great songs on here. Don't even bother thinking about it. BUY BACK IN BLACK
