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 out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

Many people consider Back in Black to be AC/DC greatest masterpiece. I beg to differ. While Back in Black is probably the finest album of the Brian Johnson era, the first 6 albums AC/DC did with Bon Scott on vocals cannot be touched by Brian Johnson. This album was released after the tragic death of Bon Scott, as sort of a tribute to him. But not a tribute in the fashion of slow, mournful, sickeningly melodramtic songs that bands seem to often do when they lose a member, but in the same hard-edged pure-rock format in which AC/DC has always lived. But you can begin to tell by listening to songs like "Have a Drink on Me" that they are honoring their late great lead singer, but in the way that made them great: hard rock. Now, on to the songs themselves.
Hells Bells: Slowish by AC/DC standards, but still a decent hard rocker, and the forboding gonging of the church bell at the beginning is an excellent touch, 4/5
Shoot to Thrill: Typical rocker in AC/DC's style, a song that a number of later Johnson-era AC/DC songs would come to sound like rehashed versions of, 3.8/5
What Do You Do For Money Honey: This song sounds a bit like typical AC/DC rockers, with a few positive twists. Sounds a bit like the song Let's Get it Up on For Those About to Rock (We Salute You), but still fairly good, 3.5/5
Givin' the Dog a Bone: See review of Shoot to Thrill above, 3.7/5
Let Me Put My Love Into You: See review of What Do You Do For Money Honey above, 3.2/5
Back in Black: Title track of the album, but by no means bad. This song sounds more hip-hop influenced than any rock song I've ever heard, but in this case it's surprisingly not a bad thing.

Look its as simple as this Back In Black is one of the best albums of all time. If you were to make a list it would be in the top 5. This is where new front man Brian Johnson filled in for the late great Bon Scott. Brain was the perfect man to step in and I actually like him better then Bon if you can believe it. This album was a tribute to Bon. "Hells Bells is my favorite AC/DC song its dark and scary. "Back In Black" is the best three chord rock song ever! "You Shook Me All Night Long" is Angus' best guitar solo! "Have A Drink On Me" was a tribute to Bon. There are no flaws on Back In Black! 'All killer no filler' Angus' solos are amazing. Malcolm's riffs are great. Phil and Cliff's rhythm is tighter then ever and Brian is amazing as I said. Not a bad song on the album. "Rock N' Roll Aint Noise Pollution" is a great rock anthem. This is AC/DC best album because the band never sounded so good. "Let Me Put My Love Into You" is Brian's best vocals ever! It doesn't get much better then this so pick this up! Because you wont regret it! Believe the hype.

All previous reviews have well described the songs and changes in the Band at this time... I will go another route...
If you grew up in the 80's .... This was THE ROCK AND ROLL ALBUM to have. AND STILL IS. ....
This Album to me glorifies the 80's and the frame of mind at that time. No music about politics, no crying, no I need to kill myself crap, no dark comments about a dark society or social injustice, BUT one simple message... Lets Party and have a good time. We did.
Most would consider this album the peak of the career for the Band if the yardstick is fortune and fame. To me, this is the last true ACDC album. I say the last True ACDC Album because this is Bon Scott ACDC only sung by Brian Johnson.
The Album is a tribute to Bon Scott; listen to the songs...they are about his life and death.
After this album comes New ACDC. Brian Johnson ACDC.
Sure you have great guitar, but the songs are not the same they are not as fun.
Music Should be Fun.
Think of all the courus lines in the songs on Back in Black and Highway to Hell. Girls got Rythem, Touch Too Much, Givin the Dog a Bone, Shook me all Night Long, Have a Drink on Me, etc. .... ....
