Continuing to work backwards:
#26 - AC/DC - Back In Black
Landing just outside the Top 25 is AC/DC's 1980 release Back In Black. This here is a rock and roll album. You won't find any comments about "elemental imagery" or music that is "pastoral, understated and carefully arranged". Nope, we're talking "real party atmosphere" that " captures all the blood, sweat and arrogance of the [heavy metal] genre". Yep good fun, not necessarily of the "clean" variety.
The album peaked at #4, and chruned out a couple of minor radio hits: "You Shook Me All Night Long" (#35) and "Back In Black" (#37). But this isn't about pop hits. Back In Black is the #3 selling album of all time with of 50 million copies. Wow.
I have to admit that I'm not a huge AC/DC fan, and didn't even own this album in the 80's. Just no my preferred stlye of vocals... But somewhere along the way I picked it up, for the 3 or 4 iconic songs. And it's a great album for what is it, good time head banging rock and roll!
