Details

POWER UP is the long awaited new album from AC/DC, and the band’s 17th studio album. For POWER UP, the band reunited with producer Brendan O’Brien who helmed the double-platinum Black Ice in 2008 and the gold Rock Or Bust in 2014. Charged up for the next decade, AC/DC cut twelve new tracks for the album, proudly maintaining their signature sound and all of its powerful hallmarks.

POWER UP was announced with the release of the album’s first single, “Shot In The Dark,” and features the lineup of Angus Young [lead guitar], Brian Johnson [lead vocals], Cliff Williams [bass guitar], Phil Rudd [drums], and Stevie Young [rhythm guitar] firing on all cylinders once again.

Tracklist:
1. Realize
2. Rejection
3. Shot in the Dark
4. Through the Mists of Time
5. Kick You When You're Down
6. Witch's Spell
7. Demon Fire
8. Wild Reputation
9. No Man's Land
10. Systems Down
11. Money Shot
12. Code Red

Not gunna lie, doesn't sound like they've skipped a beat. Same old AC/DC... and that's not a bad thing.

Sounds like classic AC/DC to me.

They definitely have a sound and I applaud them for embracing it.  As opposed to say Def Leppard who has a signature sound but seems to fight it.

Crap. There was me hoping for more synth. 

 

 

Could be a hidden track in there...somewhere...just not on this album :drink:

What would Def Leppard's "signature sound" be?  Cuz their two biggest albums, Pyromania and Hysteria, don't sound alike.

They definitely had a signature sound. Whether it was a song off High N Dry or a song off Adrenalize, you knew it was Def Lep.

Exactly. You know what you're getting from AC/DC; the same thing we've come to love for the past 40+ years.

I thought Brian Johnson was shot vocally. His voice was gradually degrading and it was becoming noticeable, but this is superb. He sounds like he did in his prime. It makes sense that if you have a severe hearing issue that it would affect your voice, but it looks like maybe the hearing surgery or whatever he had has made a difference. 

That opening riff instantly brings a familiar smile.

Yes one finds themselves checking to see if they accidentally put on one of their last 10 Cd's, I know what your saying, familiar is an overly kind way of putting it, not the word I would use, LOL.

When I first heard this on YouTube someone mentioned that the chorus sounds like "I shot the dog" and now that is all I can hear him sing dammit.

Not quite as good as the first track; somewhat boring.

Yeah, I got the same impression.
