The Brian Johnson era continued in 1981 with the release of “For Those About to Rock”. This was the album that started the transformation to an even heavier form of rock then previous fans had experienced AC/DC.
Songs like “C.O.D.”, “Night of the Long Knives”, “Snowballed” and “Evil Walks”issued in this new sound that was present for the rest of the eighties. And it works. C.O.D. (Care of the Devil) is a great song that helps bring Phil Rudd’s drumming skills into the foreground. Drumming usually takes second place to vocals and the guitar in AC/DC but this song ushers in a new style were drums take a larger role in the sound of the band.
The song “For Those About to Rock” is simply incredible. An entire song dedicated to fans of rock that ends with a barrage of cannon blasts is truly a masterpiece. If you like “Back in Black” and “The Razors Edge”, I suggest you check out “For Those About to Rock” to see what you missed in between.
Second powerful AC/DC album with Brian Johnson, it only sold around 10 million copies as of these days, according to Back in Black's 49 millions it's very low figure, but the population of it was similar, even reached #1 in American album chrts. Favourite songs: ,,For Those About to Rock", ,,Inject the Venom", ,,C.O.D.", ,,Spellbound"
*Sigh* For Those About to rock is the only song my band will play off this album.
