Airbourne | Boneshaker

The Australian rockers crank out another set of the best songs AC/DC never wrote.

630

WHO ARE THEY? The world’s greatest AC/DC tribute band — next to the most recent touring version of AC/DC with Axl Rose, perhaps.

WHAT IS THIS? The Melbourne ouftit’s fifth collection of high-voltage rock ’n’ roll, thunderstruck beats and bad-boy boogie-rock straight from the highway to hell.

WHAT DOES IT SOUND LIKE? The best songs Acca Dacca never wrote — and the kind of album they haven’t really made since the glory days of Bon Scott.

WHAT SHOULD IT BE TITLED? Dirty Deeds Done Damn Right.

HOW SHOULD I LISTEN TO IT? While playing ‘Name The Five AC/DC Songs They’re Liberally Borrowing From On This Track.’

WHAT 10 WORDS DESCRIBE IT? Rowdy, hedonistic, aggressive, sleazy, rebellious, testosterone-laced, hard-driving, relentless, aggressive, turbocharged.

WHAT ARE THE BEST SONGS? All 10 of them — this album is pretty much wall-to-wall killer and zero filler.

WHAT WILL MY FRIENDS SAY? ‘They may be shameless impersonators — but they’re the best shameless impersonators I’ve ever heard. ‘

HOW OFTEN WILL I LISTEN TO THIS? More than you listened to the last four AC/DC albums.

IF THIS ALBUM WERE OFFICE EQUIPMENT, WHAT WOULD IT BE? A Xerox machine that makes copies so good you can’t tell them from the originals.

SHOULD I BUY, STREAM OR STEAL IT? If that’s the way you wanna rock ’n’ roll — and it should be — this is dirt cheap at twice the price.
