We had a chance to hear the new AC/DC album, Rock or Bust, last Tuesday. It was a fun, party-like atmosphere made even better by Brian Johnson and Angus Young making a surprise cameo with producer Brendan O’Brien following the playback of the album. While you probably won’t have that luxury, you can hear the band’s album before it’s in stores. iTunes Radio is streaming Rock or Bust right now in advance of its release next Tuesday, December 2.
If you’re an AC/DC fan that’s expecting something out of the box, you’re probably not a real AC/DC fan. However, if you’ve heard the title track or “Play Ball,” or basically every other AC/DC track in existence, then you won’t be disappointed by Rock or Bust at all. The songs are relatively short, straight-forward, and the addition of Stevie Young in place of his ailing cousin Malcolm goes off without a hitch. If you’re not an AC/DC fan, and you’re still reading this, you’re doing it wrong.
Rock or Bust will be out on December 2, and can be preordered here.
