Buy “AC/DC – Back in Black – Music” Online
I remember buying this album on CD a long time ago, and recently I got into vinyl when I inherited my grandfathers Technics turntable. I realized that I "needed" to buy an AC/DC album and figured I would start with this one, one of, if not the best album they have done. The LP came quickly, was well package, and is perfectly flat. The sound on vinyl is great, quite where it should be, and wasn’t full of pops and noise like some poorly pressed new LPs can be. It also doesn’t sound like the loudness wars have been fought with this album like producers started doing to CDs. It sounds like it should sound. Check it out!
Product Description BACK IN BLACK is the 6th best selling album in US History and has went 19 times platinum. This digitally remastered contains a 16 page booklet with unpublished photos, classic memorabilia, and new liner notes by the Rolling Stone’s David Fricke. Amazon.com Most critics complain Back in Black, the album AC/DC recorded after the death of their original lead screamer Bon Scott, is ridiculously juvenile, obvious, snickering, bludgeoning, derivative, single-minded about sex and booze, a big cartoon. All true, of course, and–on rock ‘n’ ragers like "What Do You Do For Money Honey," "You Shook Me All Night Long," and the title track–all great. As Scott’s replacement Brian Johnson reminds us, loud and crunchy, no-holds-barred "rock and roll ain’t noise pollution…it makes good, good sense." Never trust anyone who refuses to drink domestic beer, laugh at the Three Stooges, or crank Back in Black. –David Cantwell
Back in Black Review
This album is called “McHeadbanger: over 20 million served” for a reason. It’s one of the all-time classics, no doubt. However my review is not for the album itself but rather this LP pressing. The LP is nice and on heavy weight 180g vinyl; something I’m glad to see the industry leaning towards. However, the surface quality of the LP is rather dubious. I fould the LP to have a lot of surface noise and light crackle. I have a $1000 turntable setup with a $500 stylus, so I know a good pressing when I find one. For example, The Van Halen I 180g reissue sounds absolutely dead quiet (another classic you should just buy now). So I think there is definitely room for improvement on “Back in Black”. Still, this LP issue does bring back the warmth and dynamics that are missing from the overly volume limited CD remastered edition. Unlike the CD edition, the only thing overdriven here are Angus’s guitar lines! So if you can live with an more elevated amount of surface noise than you should get from a virgin 180g vinyl release, then this is the edition to get. It helps that it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg either. .. -Read Reviews-
There is nothing I can say about this album that hasn’t been said before. I purchased the CD to accompany the corresponding TAB for guitar. At the same time, I also purchased new headphones and, while listening, discovered music I have not heard. The CD was purchased in "Very Good" condition from Round3 in Georgia. My purchase arrived quickly, without a scratch, as promised, complete with the CD booklet. Sounds & plays great. Very inexpensive purchase. S&H cost more than the CD.
