A lot of people claim that Ac/Dc never changed their style over the years. Even the band themselves made that claim. I disagree. I listened to Ac/Dc’s new album, “Rock Or Bust” earlier today and I was pretty impressed with the album. Despite Mal not playing guitar on it… the album is still good. Their style is a little bit different with their new guitarist, Stevie Young. I think the riffs are great and when I heard the album, I still felt that Mal was playing guitar on it even if he’s not in the line-up anymore sadly. The riffs are really great and catchy. This is Brian’s best singing and Angus’s guitar solo’s are badass as usual.
This album may sound a little too pop and every song sounds like a radio friendly single but it’s still a fun album. Not the best Ac/Dc album. In my opinion, “The Razor’s Edge” will always be the best Brian era album. Nothing will top that album. I only listened to “Rock Or Bust” album once today and I’ll have to listen to it a few more times. “Rock Or Bust” is still a pretty tight album and fun to listen to. I dug it.
Ac/Dc has always been one of those bands that you either love or hate but I love them. Always did. They are one of my top 10 favorite legendary bands other than Led Zep, The Allman Bros., The Doors, Metallica and The Clash.
“Rock Or Bust” is definitely a must listen.
