This is by far my number one (my favourite, that is) Rock and Roll record of rock history. The songs, the arrangements, the sounds. The whole recording is a work of art. Playing wise, it peaks and reaches the top achievements any band in the world might like to get to. Simple, yet amazingly hard to grasp. A real gem.

On February 19, 1980, the world lost a gifted song writer and lyricist Bon Scott. Scott was the lead singer for the Australian rock band AC/DC from 1974 until 1980. And although the band was depressed, they were also determined. Mere days after Scott’s death, AC/DC was searching for their next singer.

And when Brian Johnson of the British band Geordie auditioned, they knew Brian was their man. They remembered Bon even commenting on how good of a rocker Brian was. With Johnson belting out the words, they eagerly went back to work in the studio in April or 1980. And work they did.

In October of the same year that took their singer, AC/DC released one of the greatest and best selling albums of all time, Back in Black. The album is a tribute to Bon Scott and it shows throughout the album. It begins with Hells Bells goes through “Back in Black” and ends with “Rock and Roll ain’t Noise Pollution”. These three songs alone would make any album worth buying, but AC/DC took it an extra step.

They put together an album that has sold over 19 million copies around the world. With classics like “A Drink On Me”, “Shoot to Thrill” and “You Shook Me All Night Long,” it’s hard not to recognize Back in Black as a great album. Angus Young creates some of the most memorable riffs ever. The riff from “You Shook Me All Night Long” has been used by many bands over the years and continues to create new AC/DC fans. Brian Johnson’s unique voice and energy make listening to the Back in Black a wonderful experience. If you’re a rock and roll fan you have to add Back in Black to your collection.

One of, if not the best album ever.

Excelent begining of Brian Johnson replacing Bon Scott after his terrible death, my 2nd favourite AC/DC album with 1979 Highway to Hell, favourite songs: ,,Hell's Bells", ,,Let Me Put My Love Into You", ,,Back in Black", ,,You Shook Me All Night Long", ,,Rock'n Roll Ain't Noise Pollution"

10/10
