No, not really, it just means that they don't do anything differently at all. This band has made a career out of playing the same songs that are just rearranged.

australia needs AC/DC to redeem the sh**ty sounding rock that has plagued our country for years. silverchair, grinspoon, jet, powderfinger, all of these bands are f***ing sh** and it's fantastic that AC/DC has finally resurfaced to put these faggy assed teeny bopper rock bands in their place, which is in the "$10 or less" bin at the local cd store. silverchair were pretty good back in the 90's, when daniel johns was a p***ed off teenager, now he's just a faggy fag who plays sh** rock with the rest of his faggy fag band.

Break the streak of artistic lazyness perhaps? Why waste money on the exact same album they have been doin since High Voltage?

From a profit stand point your correct, why fix what isn't broken? From an artistic standpoint it just seems like the laziest thing you can do to release the exact same album over and over again. Even if you don't take the Emperor approach to making albums, bands should atleast release a different album than the one you made on your debut. We have also said millions of times on this site that profits doesn't measure talent.

we get it rickie, enough with the 200 million albums retort.

i echo cruor and fearthedje.

album sales mean nothing when it comes to the actual music. there are tons of records and bands that haven't sold a million records, yet dwarf anything ac/dc has ever done compositionally, artistically and progressively.

now playing: lionsheart - screaming

I dont like them but they do have talent. It dont matter to me if you dont like AC/DC everybody likes different music. I just love true Rock N Roll and that is AC/DC.

Lol this song is getting a fair flogging on the radio. And you don't have to have any talent to be famous. f*** look at people like Akon, just some c*** who has someone else write his tunes. But I like AC/DC. Kinda have to considering I'm Australian bahaha.

Music groups that sell a lot of albums doesn't mean they have talent, what it means is a couple of different things;
1. It's mainstream
2. Little children are crazy about the artist in which they are introduced to because of marketing
Can't think of anymore but that spread is wide enough for me lol.
A band can only do so much: if they sound different people b**** about it, if they sound the same people can complain about that as well.

This may be beyond my own understanding, but I love AC/DC and I'm glad their dirty deeds never changed :) Heh Heh...

This song is the best thing they've done in years. It rocks hard, dirty bluesy/Keef/Rolling Stones type riff. I Love it! Hope the rest of the album follows suit.

Not true, Emperor is a top 2 favorite band of mine and they are the definition of change, and a band like Amon Amarth has stayed relatively similar but they progress enough album by album where it doesnt sound the exact same as the debut as opposed to AC/DC.

First of all I love Amon Amarth...(just thought i'd share that )
Well, you do have a point there Cruor :) I was trying to refer to the first few posts...what I'm trying to get at is a different view: if you heard AC/DC on the radio you can barely (if not even) tell that it's new material due to the given impression that they sound the same. I like AC/DC though, and I like that they haven't changed, but on the other hand I honestly wouldn't mind if they progressed a tiny bit. Just my opinion, but other than that it's good.

Like I said Emperor is a top 2 favorite band, I love it when bands evolve and try to mix things up because that is what real artists do. If your not gonna take that approach atleast make each album different enough to the point where they don't sound the same. I think its cool that you like them but I view their lack of progression as artistic laziness. What would you call it if all Leonardo di Vinci did in his life was paint slightly different angles of the Mona Lisa?

Can't wait to see them Tour the "Black Ice" album. I hope they get Don Coleman to open for them on Canada's East Coast. His song, which is on AC/DC's website, called "Women, Whiskey & Rock'n'Roll" which celebrates the life and spirit of Bon Scott has now aired in 16 countries and has just gone National in Canada. A lot of stations globally are playing it along with "Rock and Roll Train". At a concert they'd be a TNT event.

i have to agree with a lot of the posts on this forum. record sales do not necessarily mean the artist has talent. just look at every single rap/hip hop group that it around these days. that's not to say ac/dc aren't talented, not, by a long shot. they are pioneers of aussie rock (i guess) and it's fantastic that they've resurfaced with a new album after all these years.

Hey everyone seems to like Slayer, yet they put out the same album every other 5 years or so. What the fukk difference, does it make? This band is pretty old and don't have anything left to prove. They know how to make good musik, just like Motorhead, and it is classic rock n roll.

On the other hand, look at the new Priest album. It is a huge departure from the Painkiller years, and lots of people/fans are very critical of the new progressive Priest album. No matter what a band does - they can't win - stick with their formula, and they considered non-creative...or make a new progressive album and then be labeled as sell-outs. Ridiculous! I think the new Priest album is pretty good, nothing outstanding, but good. I make this point because people expect AC/DC to try something different even though they are all in their early 50s...I believe. Just accept the album as a return and be happy we have a band like AC/DC. I also love Amon Amarth! The problem, to me, is that emo crap is flooding the air waves..breeding like c***roaches, even called (shock!) metal.
