Who would've thought the regeneration of power-chord metal into finger-picking bluegrass would sound so good? Every single one of these tracks hits the mark. "You Shook Me All Night Long," perhaps AC/DC's biggest hit, sounds as perverse as Dueling Banjos did in the movie Deliverance. Hells Bells is hilarious, "gonging" a triangle instead of a giant bell, as is TNT with the opening chant of "oink, oink, oink." The humor throughout plays off hillbilly stereotypes (again, think Deliverance) juxtaposed against he image of a metal band. Even the photo of the band develops this theme--four shirtless men in bib overalls and long beards, tattoos, and rotted teeth, all with black bars over their eyes ala the Dirty Deeds album. The liner notes, about the boys finding the AC/DC albums in a wrecked muscle car adds to the joke, as does the name (Hayseed Dixie, AC/DC.) But what makes this disk better than just a parody album as that the band plays the humor completely straight, and they are first-rate musicians. All songs hold up to the originals and a few (Have a Drink on Me, Money Talks) are even better. Initially you may find yourself enjoying the album because of the concept, but in the end, you'll find yourself enjoying the music.
