Best Selling in Records See all. Greatest Hits [Warner Bros. My poor old Mum didn't usually complain about me playing my music but she drew the line at Givin' The Dog A Bone, and in fairness I can see why.
The show goes on, bawdy lyrics and all. On a par with Highway To Hell, though Powerage is their best by a small margin. Paul Hutchings: Whilst I love Bon era more and I think that they hold up better than most of the Brian era stuff, Back In Black is a masterful piece of work from a band who were still reeling.
If you were around when it came out, then it will mean a huge amount. The tolling of the bell as Hells Bells kicks things off still sends shivers down the spine. The title track crunches hard and is one of those universally popular songs that crosses genres, ages groups and cultures. It's also one of the best albums to drive to. Still played on a regular basis. Troy Smith: The Monster.
More hard rock anthems than you can poke an SG at! Even a few of the deep cuts are solid, especially Have a Drink On Me. He had High Voltage and Powerage on vinyl as well as Let There Be Rock , which mesmerised me with the zombie looking fans on the cover leaning out over the front of the stage.
My mom also loved the band, so Back In Black hit our household on 8-track at some point between and I remember pulling the mattress onto the floor with my brothers for a makeshift stage and lip syncing to the tunes complete with air guitar!
The entire album is ingrained and when I revisited it recently for the podcast, it is still absolutely brilliant. I know exponentially more about music 40 years later and still marvel at the brilliance. Favourites are about personal tastes; my picks for the greatest are simply for sheer influence on the world. Unfortunately, they bored me to tears and I stopped listening to them for some time even though I was highly appreciative of being able to see them before Bon passed away.
Eventually though, I simply couldn't deny the absolute brilliance of this album. There isn't even one second of filler here and it has to be in every rock fan's top 10 list.
Which is a shame because it actually sounds quite good. The production is faultless, and the songs are a blast. Opener Hells Bells seems to be about something different but the rest of the songs are about boning women. The guitarist is very good, great vibrato.
I heard a previous album of theirs a few years back and they must have had a different singer because I could make out the words and they seemed more subtle. Roland Bearne: What can one possibly say about this that hasn't been said a million times?! Massive record, world beating, discussed to death, so possibly not the greatest conversation starter!
I can only relate my personal experience with it. The anticipation surrounding its release was spine tingling, the apprehension as the needle hit the vinyl, the joy of the Bell, "that" riff then Yes, whoop, holler, jumpy dancing, he nailed it. The King is dead, Long live the King!
Whether it's your bag or not, it's an absolute 24 carat slab of rock'n'roll greatness. Hai Kixmiller: Don't call it a come-back! For a band to have a come-back, wouldn't they have had to breakup, retire, or just stopped making music altogether? A change of band members doesn't constitute a come-back does it? Whatever you call it, one can not deny the greatness that is Back In Black. A eulogy, a tribute, a collection of raucous and bawdy rock n' roll?!
However you spin it, in , Back In Black grabbed the world by the scruff of the neck and has been shaking us all night long ever since. The eulogy. Before there's even one guitar note, or one utterance of voice, four ominous bell chimes are the first thing the listener hears.
The bell will toll nine more times and then fades out as the haunting melody of the song builds into a toe tapping, head nodding rock song.
Malcolm Young has said that this entire album was dedicated to the memory of Bon Scott. From the plain black album cover design to the tolling of the church bells to the contents and contexts of the lyrics and songs, there's a lot here that raises a pint to the former lead singer.
The opening track goes for nearly a minute and a half before Brian Johnson, aka. The Replacement Singer, is introduced. Classic hard rock albums by valeriosarno.
