  • Ballbreaker will never be considered AC/DC’s best album. That’s because it’s not. Does that mean its no good? No way! It’s a must have for any die-hard AC/DC maniac (such as myself), but it’s not exactly the CD you want to loan your wayward, uninitiated friend who’s curious about the band (that would be either High Voltag or Back in Black), because it’s not the consistently solid effort they are usually known for. Tracks like “Hard as a Rock”, “Hail Caesar”, and “Love Bomb” are vintage AC/DC, but “Caught with your pants down” (the only song by AC/DC that I truly dislike) is without question the weakest song they’ve ever recorded. Some tracks I love, some I like, one I’m borderline on, and one I dislike. “Burnin Alive” seems (to me at least) to be a commentary on Bill Clinton’s stupidity (already emerging back in 95), to my knowledge, the first time the Young boys have ever commented on current issues. It’s still a great album, and still great music, but the resence of the only truly “bad” AC/DC song on it makes it one for only seasoned fans.
