AC/DC - Back In Black

Here I've been trying to avoid doing an AC/DC review like pirates tried to avoid picking up scurvy. Now I have to go and admit how I don't really care much for them - as I feel all their music sounds the same. Super heavy guitars, pretty loud - in your face vocals and lyrics that mean absolutely nothing. The lyrics are really just background noise for the fans to murmur along with. That doesn't mean their songs aren't super catchy though, as they certainly are. And they have a pretty bigtime following, so all those people outweigh my opinion. This is probably my favorite album by them, and that's only because of the sheer 'hype you up' principles behind it. If you're feeling down and need a pick me up, you can toss this on and feel like you can punch a hole in a brick wall. If you went and listened to 30 professional sports teams locker rooms, I bet at least half play AC/DC on a regular basis. Not sure why, as it isn't exactly peppy type stuff, just for some reason that heavy guitar and the simple lyrics you can sing along with make you feel invincible. How many tracks have you heard play over the system at sports venues? It's crazy. AC/DC could easily live off the royalties from sports arenas everywhere. Anyways, check this one out. It's a neat record.
