I didn't expect a whole lot when I picked up this album just recently due to the negative reviews and bad sales. This album, however, is just as good as many AC/DC albums of the Brian era. It does not reach the peak of Brian with Back In Black and doesn't touch any of Bon's work in terms of greatness, but I still love it for its different and darker sound.
A run-through of the songs-
Heatseaker: A little overated, catchy and crunchy guitar solo but the chorus doesn't hook you like it should.
That's The Way I Wanna Rock'N'Roll: An absolute classic! I don't care if this song was trying to be an anthem (ala For Those About.., It's A Long Way To The Top...), the riff is killer and the backround vocals kick some butt.
Meanstreak:Great and features some great writing! Not as rocking but an excellent change of pace.
Go Zone: Catchy riff, and good solo.
Kissin' Dynamite: Not bad, not great but still gets your toes tapping.
Nick Of Time: Great feel but suffers again from a somewhat weak chorus.
Some Sin For Nuthin':Should have been on the radio with That's The Way and Meanstreak, features a great bluesy riff and catchy chorus and great crunchy sound.
Two's Up: An excellent darker sounding AC/DC cut.
This Means War: It took me a few listens of this song to really get into it, but I love it's fast pace (ala Rocker from Dirty Deeds) and relentlessness.
This album doesn't get four stars from me only because it isn't perfect and therefore does not get a perfect rating. It does rock though. If you want to sample the best songs on the album before you purchase it, I'd say That's The Way, Meanstreak, Some Sin..., Two's Up, and This Means War are the choice cuts.
