Airbourne - Black Dog Barking CD

Both AC/DC and Status Quo can attest that there is no career impediment to making the same album over and over, and Airbourne can back that up with their third full length platter full of Accadacca-cloned rockers.

The boys from Warrnambool, Victoria, take no prisoners from track 1 (Ready To Rock), delivering ten solid tracks of rock (plus a slug of bonuses across different versions) that are so close to their idols that they could be outtakes from the Thunderstruck, Who Made Who, Back In Black or Black Ice songbooks.

One has to wonder how long they can keep it up (you know what I mean, cheeky), but for now it’s working a treat and if anything, Black Dog Barking is a better record than its predecessor, the slightly jaded sounding No Guts, No Glory.

Standouts include the raunch n’ roll of Animalize, the smutty party rocker No-One Fits Me (Better Than You) , the hair shaking Rose Tattoo boogie of Live It Up, and the raucously infectious title track, which closes the album proper.

Airbourne – like AC/DC – specialise in music to turn up loud while you blow the froth off another coldie, and if your neck isn’t sore after just one listen, then there’s something wrong with you, my friend!
