AC/DCs lyrics have never been deep of meaningful actually-they were juvenille with Bon too. Classic example: "Can I sit Next To You", "She's got Balls", etc. The abiltiy to make lyrics like that sound so damn good is part of what makes the band.
And they always kept a bluesy feel-from the beginning-listen to Drity Deeds and High Voltage-most of the tracks are bluesy. Yes they are rock-n-roll, but they are more bluesy than heavy for sure. Only in around the time of Fly On The Wall they changed their format.-80s big drum production and all that. Which I dont mind, loved Fly.
Ballbreaker had a few great songs on there...I love the title track for one, The Furor, Hail Ceasar.
But hey, thats why the Band made so many damn albums-we can all have our faves!
Though I must say-and I HAVE to say it-is the album "for those about to rock-we salute you" was VERY dissapointing. I never listen to it. Though the kids that buy the t-shirts at Target and Wal-Mart don't know that...
I bought Ballbreaker when it first came out. I sold it 2 months later. Hard As A Rock is the only track off the whole CD that is worth mentioning. Stiff Upper Lip sounds like decent blues album. But I don't want to hear a blues album from AC/DC. I want some rock n' roll that packs a punch with decent lyrics.

Like u said to me Listen to BALLBREAKER 3times let me know then lot of good tunes
AC/DC kicks serious ass! I think I'm more of a Bon Scott-era fan than Brian Johnson. Nothing AC/DC has done since The Razor's Edge has been quality stuff.
