It still amazes me that it was not Back In Black, but this one that got to number 1 in the USA, despite the latter being one of the best selling records (and one of my favorites) ever...

Anyway, the casual AC/DC-fan will only know the title track, but why not listen to Let's Get It Up or Inject The Venom? More commercial than BIB, but oh so catchy. Sadly, the album has been overlooked by the band ever since the FOTATR-tour ended, and even during that tour, maximum 2-3 songs from it were played...

Favorite track: For Those...
Hey look, an album that's actually good!

But yea, this album's greatest crime is following one of the greatest and most successful rock albums ever. Unless you manage to come up with something even bigger you're kind of fucked. Sad, because at the very least its better than Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap.
You know its true, bunny rabbits we have got lovely little fluffy bottoms. We do. That's why people often mistake us for Danny Devito.
