Product Description

Product Description

This 'Limited Edition' collection includes the 2003 remastered digi-pack version of the classic album, with an official size Large Back In Black T-Shirt, contained in a collectable Back In Black metal tin (8 inches High x 5.75 inches Wide). Back In Black is AC/DC's 7th studio album and was originally released in July of 1980. It is the first album recorded with singer Brian Johnson, after original lead singer Bon Scott died in early 1980. The album contains some of AC/DC's biggest hits, including 'Hells Bells', 'You Shook Me All Night Long', and the title track 'Back In Black'. According to Angus Young, the album's all black cover was a sign of mourning for Scott. The album was produced by the now legendary Robert John 'Mutt' Lange, who had previously worked with the band on the Highway to Hell album. Sony. 2009.

Most critics complain Back in Black, the album AC/DC recorded after the death of their original lead screamer Bon Scott, is ridiculously juvenile, obvious, snickering, bludgeoning, derivative, single-minded about sex and booze, a big cartoon. All true, of course, and--on rock 'n' ragers like "What Do You Do For Money Honey," "You Shook Me All Night Long," and the title track--all great. As Scott's replacement Brian Johnson reminds us, loud and crunchy, no-holds-barred "rock and roll ain't noise pollution...it makes good, good sense." Never trust anyone who refuses to drink domestic beer, laugh at the Three Stooges, or crank Back in Black. --David Cantwell --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

It is a fact!!! that AC/DC's album Back In Black is the sixth best selling album of all time in the world. That alone shows that this is the album to buy. With much respect to former front man Bon Scott (who died by choking on his vomit after a night of heavy drinking), this album is the greatest of AC/DC's entire career. And not too many would disagree. I personally like every single song on this CD. It is non-stop Rock N Roll through to the last one. The best songs on the CD would be "Hells Bells", "Shoot To Thrill", "Back In Black", and of course "You Shook Me All Night Long". There is also "Have a Drink On Me" which was a homage to Bon although they aren't direct with this in the song. And look for some really rockin' guitar riffs in "Shake a Leg" and "Given the Dog a Bone". "Rock N Roll Ain't Noise Pollution" was a great way to top off the album in the end with the phrase "Rock N Roll will never die!" Many critics have said that this album is crude and obnoxious, but that is why people have liked it. Also people say all their music sounds the same, but that is what makes them great. Explanation: throughout their entire career they have always played the same heavy metal music while so many bands explored newer, but crappier styles of music, and in the end they are admired for that. Did I mention that AC/DC is the #1 selling hard rock/heavy metal band. Although they have (finally) been inducted in the RNR Hall of Fame, I still think they are underated. They have always been overshadowed by bands like Led Zepplin and Guns N Roses (both are great bands though). This is a must have album. Then you should get "Stiff Upper Lip", "AC/DC Live"(Special Collectors Edition) and albums by the equally great front man Bon Scott ("High Voltage" "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" "Highway to Hell").Read more ›

who DOESN'T own this album?!? man what are you waiting for? click add to shopping cart. why? let me explain :
a) this is known as one of AC/DC's greatest albums of all time
b) this is known as one of rock's greatest albums of all time
c) with songs like hells bells, shoot to thrill, let me put my love into you, back in black, shook me all night long, and noise pollution...how could you POSSIBLY go wrong?!?!
now this isn't a typical review for me...I usually write long, educated, specific reviews, but I figure this album speaks for itself. Do yourself a favor and pick this up if you don't already have it. If you're just getting into AC/DC, you will definately enjoy it. If you don't, tell me and I will refund you the money myself.
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!?! CLICK THE BUTTON! ;-)

With a sale of 19 million copies and a reputation as one of rocks greatest albums, it is very easy to overlook Back in Black's faults, and quite simply, this aint no Led Zeppelin 4. The album has neither the astonishing musicianship of "Are You Experienced?" (Jimi Hendrix), the mysticism and inventiveness of "Led Zeppelin" or the heart and soul of "Rocks" (Aerosmith), and it is a wonder that Back in Black deserves to be mentioned among these titles. It has also abandoned many of the things that made their earlier albums great, such as the raw, unpolished sound of the guitars in "Powerage" and "Let There Be Rock",the band on the road tales of "High Voltage", and even the consistency of "Highway to Hell". In short, they have not advanced as musicians or changed their style enough from the previous albums to make it as exciting as it could have been, whereas albums like "Van Halen" prove to be far more inventive and revolutionary despite lacking depth. Despite these complaints, Back in Black is nevertheless a great album because of its playfulness and sense of fun throughout, especially on tracks like "You Shook Me All Night Long" and "Shoot to Thrill". And although the guitars have lost most of their raw appeal, Angus and Malcolm Young still manage to provide more memorable hooks and riffs than before. But what really makes Back In Black a success is AC/DC's never ending dedication to simple, loud and juvenile rock n' roll.

Back In Black(1980). AC/DC's Sixth Studio Album and the First to feature Brian Johnson on Vocals.
Poised on breaking through to American audiences, with Highway To Hell already being certified Gold stateside, things were looking up for Hard Rockers AC/DC. Then, Tragedy Struck. After a night of drinking, Charismatic frontman and vocalist Bon Scott choked on his own vomit(Eww!)ending his illustrious life, and putting AC/DC's career on the line. Luckily, AC/DC decided to continue on without Scott, so they hired virtual sound-alike Brian Johnson for the new vocalist, and set out to rock the world with their new album Back In Black, a Tribute to Bon Scott.Released only 5 Months after Scott's death, Back In Black shot up the Charts, Reaching the Top 5, riding on the heels of singles "Shook Me All Night Long" and "Black In Black", Back In Black stayed in the charts almost as long as Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, and has became one of Rock's all-time classics, selling over 16 Million to date. With instantly recognizable songs such as "Shook Me All Night Long", "Back In Black", "Hell's Bells", and "Rock And Rock Ain't No Noise Pollution", EVERY SONG ON THIS ALBUM RECEIVES RADIO AIRPLAY TODAY! Frankly, that is amazing, and I can't think of another album that even nears that, except for Led Zeppelin IV. Read on to find out what makes this album so great.
Track Ratings-
Hells Bells-Doomy Church Bells and Young's somber riff build the song up until it reaches full-throttle, with Johnson screaming out vocals that positively ring Bloody Murder, with lyrics to match.
Shoot To Thrill- Rudd's drumming and Young's catchy riff build up to the vocals, which truly shine in the chorus, where it's nearly impossible to not sing along.
