Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time
Back In Black
at #26


Back In Black. What an amazing achievement by AC/DC to not only follow up the greatest Bon Scott era album in the form of Highway To Hell, but to throw down the gauntlet and exceed it and let everyone know that they were back and stronger than ever with new singer Brian Johnson. This is easily the best album with Brian and they have been trying to top it ever since, which is just impossible. Rolling Stone Magazine has this at #26. Sorry, but once again, they failed in their ranking. This is clearly Top 10 material IMO. With 49 Million units sold, this sits at #2 for most albums sold, right behind Michael Jackson's Thriller album. Back In Black is the highest selling album by any band and the highest selling hard rock album of all time.

This album is more or a less an unofficial Greatest Hits set with so many great tracks from Hells Bells to Shoot To Thrill to Let Me Put My Love Into You to Back In Black to You Shook Me All Night Long to Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution. There isn't one wasted second here. This is AC/DC lasting legacy and a fitting tribute to the late, great Bon Scott. Once again, Producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange works his magic and creates another masterpiece. There is a reason why I consider him to be one of the greatest producer of all time. He is right up there with George Martin IMO.

The first time I heard this album when it came out I was just absolutely floored by how f*cking good it was with a replacement singer. Honestly, I didn't think the album would be much at all. How do you follow up the best Bon Scott album with an unknown singer? The odds were stacked against them. But wow, they blew the doors down and are still thriving to this day.

Fave Songs: All of 'em. But MVP goes to....You Shook Me All Night Long

Album cover ftw!! Before there was Spinal Tap and Metallica, there was this....the original all black cover.  The band chose to go with all black as a sign of mourning for Bon. I will replace the back cover with the original vinyl version once I can find it online somewhere. (UPDATE: Look above)
