My Top 5 Favorite Albums: #3

The second highest selling album of all time, and the best selling album of all time by a band.  Raw blues-infused rock.  The most charismatic guitarist in rock.  One of the most unique voices in rock.  You can’t go wrong with Back in Black. Nothing but straight-up rock ‘n’ roll.  What’s amazing about this album is that it was the first one the band recorded after the death of their original frontman, Bon Scott.  New singer Brian Johnson was hired, and the rest is history.  What I like most about the album is drummer Phil Rudd, who I think is one of the best drummers in rock because of his restraint.  AC/DC’s rhythm section truly is a rhythm section. Producing such hits as Back in Black, You Shook Me, and Shoot to Thrill, this album never gets old.  If you don’t own it, you should.  Because just about everyone else on planet earth does.

Check out “Shoot to Thrill” (from the Iron Man 2 soundtrack)
