First Review Of New AC/DC Album Available

Rollingstone.com has posted a short description of the new AC/DC album, "Black Ice" which is as follows:

"AC/DC singer Brian Johnson promised that they’d tour in 2008. Well, he wasn’t kidding. Soon they’ll begin rehearsals in a secret location, before hitting US arenas in late fall. We heard this news at the Sony HQ on New York’s Madison Avenue, before hearing all 15 tracks of the band’s earthshaking new Black Ice, recorded in Vancouver in just eight weeks with Brendan O’Brien. On it, Brian wails about skies on fire, blood in his eyes, storms raging, lightning flashes, hard rain and pretty women. Angus Young shreds throughout (we dig his slide work on 'Decibel'), and the rhythm cats — Malcom Young, Cliff Williams and Phil Rudd — are solid as a rock. The first single is 'Rock ‘N Roll Train'; 'She Likes Rock ‘N Roll' will be a stripper anthem; and 'War Machine' (our favorite) will tear you to pieces."

Well I never relied on interviewers anyway, but as long as AC-DC still sounds like AC-DC, it's all good.

There is no possible reason why anyone would not like what they sound like, AC/DC has always been dirty n fun n I love 'em every time. Oh, and Wilco: I haven't heard the words 'old school rock' put together in a long time! Because of that my days are happy again!

Looking forward to seeing AC/DC tour. Would be great if they get Don Coleman, who has his homage to Bon Scott called "Women, Whiskey & Rock'n'Roll" on their website, to open for them. That would definitely be a TNT show.

this song sounds like it could be slapped on the back in black album and you'd never know the difference.. these guys are by far my favorite band. like others have said, its just plug in and play and smile.. always good times. the late 80-s to early 90's forced alot of bands to alter their styles.. its good to hear these guys going back to the style we always loved.
