Consistent album. Really great stuff. Runs like a Best Of, which is always a good sign. Brian Johnson's vocals aren't as grating as they are on latter album, but Angus, Malcom and Cliff Williams really shine here.

RIP Bon. Rest in Hell you beautiful devil.

To come back with an album like this after the death of Bon Scott is quite remarkable really. When you consider the heights they climbed to with Bon Scott on vocals it was quite a risk selecting a replacement who sounded similar. Hats off to Brian Johnson for pulling it off. The opening track is a sizzler, the way the drums and guitars sync to the tolling bell is spot on. Great album for working out to, beats the junk they play through the speakers at the gym any day!

Morto Bon Scott, i suoi compagni lo rimpiazzano con quel caterpillar di Brian Johnson e lo commemorano con questo "Back in black". Disco dal suono maggiormente FM rispetto ai precedenti ma comunque ottimo e trascinato verso un successo planetario e ad oggi ancora in corso dalle due hits costituite dalla canzone omonima e da "You shook me all night long".

Half the album sounds like a greatest hits compilation, the songs are so great and recognisable.

And the ones I hadn't heard are arguably even better!

Australia has 3 National Treasures: The Great Barrier Reef , The Sydney Opera House and ‘ Back In Black ‘

BEA ranked 99 Overall says it all and album number 3 on my odyssey to listen to the BEA top 100 ...twice

A hard rock classic without question, AC/DC not missing a beat post Bon Scott . How’s the opening 4 tracks .. “ Hell’s Bells “ / “ Shoot To Thrill “ / “ How You Get Your Money Honey “ and “ Giving the Dog a Bone” just incredible
And the critics got it correct rating this album

AllMusic: 5 Stars
Blender: 5 Stars
Rolling Stone: 5 Stars

No question AC/DC’ masterpiece a hard rock Masterclass

Rock And Roll An’t Noise Pollution, you better believe it

This is the thing with this website. So many hard rock and metal albums have low ratings, and I just don't know why. I mean it is all indie orientated but still... AC/DC are not my fav band or anything but this is one of the best selling albums ever, and a classic
