Trying to figure out where this drops in my Johnson fronted DC albums...going to say 4th after BLACK ICE - BACK IN BLACK - RAZORS EDGE then PWR UP (just before FLICK OF THE SWITCH). Bon way out in a league of his own.

I mean you get what you expect. There seems to be very little innovation, but being this old they know what they do best. So in a word: standard
3/5

A classic AC/DC album, vinyl is very quite, no surface noise at all. Album sound quality might be a bit flat, but I think you need to crank the volume up to feel the music. I mean I think the mix is suppose to be that way to listen the music with high volume.

Seconding that the vinyl is super quiet, very little to no surface noise. That is the best thing this has going for it, as the overall sound of the music is not great. This could have been done right and pressed correctly with great sound, but it falls short. It's muddy and shrill and sounds like a bad CD. Put on the remastered Back In Black (Digital Remaster) on vinyl and then put this on and you will hear the difference.

Dec20. I was excited for this album as soon as I heard snippets of first single, 'Shot in the Dark'. I love the crunching guitars and sing-a-long chorus. A fantastic lead single. Whilst a lot of the rock bands I listen to are doing 'something different' (by going pop and basically doing what everyone is doing), I knew ACDC would deliver the goods and give the fans what they want. This is a solid rock album and stands up against their catalogue.
'Realize' is a good opener that gets everything right without being over the top. 'Rejection' is a slower, bluesier number of the style they explored on Stiff Upper Lip that really suits Johnson's vocals. 'Through the Mists of Time' is a very easy-listening, mid-paced rocker that I quite enjoy. 'Kick You When You're Down' is a combination of the previous two tracks with a catchy little guitar hook in there.
'Witch's Spell' is okay, but the album goes up a knotch with the cool 'Demon Fire'. The guitars just work so well together in this one. 'Wild Reputation' has a feel to it that reminds me of Shake Your Foundations.
From there it is a run of three solid rockers to the end, two of which sound similar with their choruses. Then finally, the slower, 'Code Red'. Not quite as slow (or as good) as The Jack but in that vein.
Overall, I am glad I waited for more listens. If I reviewed this when I first heard it, I would have rated it higher (which would look odd against the catalog). As it is, this is still very enjoyable in an age of pop production. A slightly weaker second half, but all songs here are worthy. 4/5

Hardly their best by any means. Vinyl wise it’s well put together , no background noise. Buy for completeness only really.
