Fast jede andere Band hätte durch den Verlust ihres Sängers mindestens einen happigen Karriere-Knick hinnehmen müssen. Nicht so AC/DC. Im Gegenteil! -- Nach dem tragischen Tod von Bon Scott (erstickte im Februar 1980 nach einer ausgedehnten Sauftour an seinem Erbrochenen) überraschten die Australier mit dem neuen Sänger Brian Johnson und ihrem bisher grössten Erfolg <<Back in Black>>, mit rund 45 Millionen Exemplaren das meistverkaufte Hard Rock-Album überhaupt. Und das trotz der immer noch beachtlichen <<Nurechtmitbonscott>>-Fraktion unter den AC/DC-Fans. -- Bei AC/DC ergibt die Gitarren-Arbeit der Brüder Angus und Malcolm Young, sowie der Rhythmus-Teppich von Bassist Cliff Williams und Schlagzeuger Phil Rudd, ein dermassen solides, tragendes und in seiner direkten Wirkung nicht zu überbietendes Fundament, dass der Sänger fast zweitrangig wird (aber natürlich schon der Schlagrahm auf der Torte ist). -- Alles ist auf den Punkt gespielt, druckvoll, explosiv, schnörkellos, kein Ton zuviel, minimaler (technischer) Aufwand, maximale Wirkung. Jeder Song ein Klassiker, jeder Song eine Hymne. Und zeitlos. (Quelle:, 16.10.2008)

Flick of the switch by AC/DC (Musical group)( Recording )

44 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a Hyper CD, which contains regular audio tracks and also provides a link to the artist's website with the help of a web browser. AC/DC: Brian Johnson (vocals); Angus Young, Malcolm Young (guitar); Cliff Williams (bass); Phil Rudd (drums). Recorded at Compass Point Studios, Nassau, Bahamas. Originally released on Atlantic (80100). Includes liner notes by Brad Tolinski. Detractors have long called minimalist bands such as AC/DC, Bad Company and ZZ Top formulaic. By paring rock down to its most basic elements, these bands forged a musical terrain where anything less than mastery over the form would reveal gaping holes in the structure. Remember that there are no keyboards filling up space, or creating diversions on an AC/DC record. The point is, AC/DC's approach may not have varied an inch over the years and it may very well be a formula. It is also a highly effective one. FLICK OF THE SWITCH carries the spirit of the band's hard rock crunch with capable aplomb. Massive guitar riffs that could capsize a medium size boat, a stomping 4/4-rhythm section and Brian Johnson screeching like a banshee on the warpath. The album's highlights are the mid-tempo "Rising Power," and the bruising title track. When Johnson screams "With a flick of the switch she'll blow you sky high" on the latter, AC/DC proves itself still capable of explosive outbursts
