Back in Black

Six of the eight tracks here are "originals," which means they only sound like AC/DC tunes; the other two, "Money Honey" and "Back in Black," were torn directly from the sacred text. On the one hand you have to admire the moxie of five guys, including front man Darren Caperna channeling Bon and Brian, using a beat-to-hell template for making new music; God knows you can't damn them as derivative, since that is the point. Then again, just what is the point to songs like "Drop the Bomb" and "Burn Bitch Burn" and "Look What the Cat Dragged In"? Dunno, really, except maybe there's a fan base out there for whom phonies playing make-believe is an acceptable substitute, in which case, it's all yours.
