Staff review by
It goes without saying that Airbourne is essentially a carbon copy of AC/DC, a redundancy which needs no explaining. They made it work for two albums, though, and they have a decent shot at continuing the trend.

Airbourne rock hard once again. The only problem I got with this album (as well as with its predecessors) is a lack of diversity. But, nevertheless, it's a perfect musical supplement to your party.
