Very underrated album. This album stands in the shadow of Back In Black and the reason why it has a bad reputation is because it’s the follow up to Back In Black. They were never gonna top Back In Black and this album deserves to be looked at fairly as an album by itself not “Back In Black 2”. The production is absolutely fantastic and the band sounds huge i this album and the album has its own distinctive sound. Brian Johnson sounds absolutely incredible and very powerful especially on Inject The Venom and towards the end of Snowballed, on snowballed he hits some seriously high notes. The only song that’s not so great is Breaking the Rules but it’s not that bad of a song. I saw some older comments saying Evil Walks isn’t such a great song but they couldn’t be more wrong, Evil Walks I’d a great song and it’s a fan favorite. Give this album a chance it deserves to be looked at as an album on its own not in the shadow of Back In Black. Check out these songs:

For Those About To Rock
I Put The Finger On You
Let’s Get It Up
Inject The Venom (some of Brian’s best vocal performance)
Snowballed (Brian hits extremely high notes towards the end)
Evil Walks (UNDERRATED a fan favorite)
C.O.D.
Night Of The Long Knives (worth it for that fantastic riff)
Spellbound

Breaking The Rules isn’t that bad but it’s not as good as the other songs

One of my favorite AC/DC record, with some very underrated deep cuts. Great album, that seems to be somewhat overshadowed because its the follow up to Back in Black. Its probably Brian Johnson's second best vocal performance after Back in Black.

Key tracks: For Those About to Rock, Night of the Long Knives, Snowballed, Evil Walks and Inject the Venom

I have a great fondness for this album, and I think it's a fantastic follow-up to Back in Black. It has nowhere near as many "concert staples" or well known tracks, but the performances of the band members are just as damn good and the songwriting is still up there. First five tracks are ass kickers if there ever were any...

Apart from the title track it's disappointing. The first poor AC/DC album.

My favorite from AC/DC, the sound of this album is killer, great summary of the early 80s hair metal sound

Not good as Back In Black yes, but it's still a fine album. The title track, Inject The Venom, and Evil Walks are my favorites.

Not Back in Black. But still, it's their best Johnson release otherwise (maybe Razor's Edge). It's inconsistent, but a hell of a lot better than their other 80s shite.
