AC/DC - Black Ice

I won't trouble you much with this review. It's short and sweet.
You either like AC/DC... or... I don't want you reading my blog, so please leave now!

As has been said, I suspect, in every review of this album, it's just what you would expect from AC/DC. There are no ballads. They haven't thrown in a rap. It's the same old thing

And of course that means it's just brilliant.

It's Dad Rock. I'm a Dad. It works for me.
The only thing I'd add is that after the initial euphoria of hearing the songs for the first time has worn off... well... it starts to get better! Yes, it's a grower... there is depth there, these are good songs.

These guys are old now... Angus is in fact my age, which must mean he's probably creaking and groaning when he picks up a dropped plectrum. But they know how to put a rock song together, and the 'young guns' of the rock world would be well advised to check out just how it should be done.

Recommended, 10/10, you could buy it here.
