AC/DC: FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK (WE SALUTE YOU)

In contrast with "Back In Black", "For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)" possesses an upbeat, almost celebratory vibe that probably reflected the bands mood at this point in time. Although their formula was essentially the same, the tempos are a bit more relaxed. These songs are catchy with a subtle pop-metal vibe that seemed to make them ready made for FM radio. On the surface, this lively record seemed satisfying and delivered many worthwhile songs. With deeper scrutiny, minor flaws become more noticeable and much of gold in this album winds up being a bit more silver in value.
