"The Razors Edge" was a sizable hit, although not as big as it deserved, and it is filled with the kind of memorable, catchy and unapologetically silly rock n' roll that made "Black In Black" such a tremendous album.
From the menacing title song through the melodious (and surprisingly big) hit singles "Thunderstruck", "Are You Ready" and "Moneytalks", to the silly "Mistress For Christmas", this record doesn't have a single weak track. Even the lesser-known album tracks, such as "Shot Of Love", "If You Dare" and "Let's Make It" are more than worth a listen, and rarely has any rock band put together such a great collection of songs...tune for tune, riff for riff, this is better than most hard rock bands' greatest hits-collections.
The title, by the way, is a quote from a 1988 interview with Keith Richards.
enhanced DigiPak remaster CD says:
A Prime slice of AC/DC!
For many bands, the death of a prime member,
mainly a lead singer, causes them to call it quits
But AC/DC went on, and over the course of the 80's
and up to recent times, have sill gone strong.
The very moment you pop this disc in and hit "play"
You get a taste of the true masterpiece here.
The frantic, hammer-on, pull-off riffage that kicks
off "Thunderstruck" is immediatley recognaizable
to any hard rock fan.
Next up, "Fire Your Guns" could have been worthy
of a slot on "Back In Black", via it's fast, riff-driven
attack, and the shouts of "FIRE!", followed by Brian's
screaming proclamations "Then she'll blow ya round!",
etc. Great song
And who could forget the classic "Moneytalks"?
The melodic, foot tapping, sing-along-ish tune
is one of AC/DC's best works yet. More great guitar work
by Angus Young.
"The Razor's Edge": A different beat for AC/DC.
Instead of the usual bluesly, hard, fast rocking sound
they are known for, this song is somewhat haunting,
with it's outlandish sound, and warnings of "Here...comes...
The razor's eeedgeeeee..." Sill a good song.
"Mistress for Christmas" and "Rock Your Heart Out"
Are good too, but not the best.
Following up, is the gang-chorus, shouter "Are You Ready"
This song is well worth a listen, for the perfect
backing vocals, resembling a street gang shouting,
of "Who all need it..who!!!...Who all need it..YOU!"
Tagged along with the head banging, fist pumping shouts
"Are ya ready for a good time!? Then get ready for then night line!" One of the boy's best.Read more ›
1. Thunderstruck: a very strange song, very different from the classic formula they had going in the 70s and early 80s, and for some odd reason, has struck a chord with the general public. It has no real cohesive purpose or story, it's just an excuse to belt out "THUNDER! na na na naa na na naaaaa..." a chant that has become the call of a generation. Personally, this song grates on my nerves, but I suppose it would be considered a "classic" because it has been so engrained in the public's subconscious.
2.Fire Your Guns: This song may seem just fantastic the first time you listen to it, but for me, it's deteriorated over time. It reverts somewhat to the fact that Brian Johnson's voice can destroy ANY fantastic guitar work.
3. Moneytalks: a timeless classic...guitar-wise. It's one of Brian Johnson's better vocal forays, but going back to that ruining some ingenious guitar work...he still manages to overpower some great playing by Angus with his voice that strains the definitions of gravelness. Nonetheless, still one of the top three songs on this CD.
4. Razor's Edge: a fantastic opening, has the potential to be a very eerie song, in the league of their earlier work such as Night Prowler, but then, it fails to pan out. Still, a half decent effort.
5. Mistress for Christmas: brutal. Nothing more than that.Read more ›
