When it's done this damn well there really are none better at serving up raw, bloody Rock & Roll.

Have you heard about the Rock band that, rather than trashing hotel rooms, actually leave their accommodation forensically clean? They're called OC/DC...

Okay, while you're shackling me to the village stocks and gathering rotten fruit, allow me to qualify the tenuous link to my opening gag; Airbourne are to AC/DC what Kingdom Come were to Led Zeppelin, and The Cult were to... well, both aforementioned acts actually (as evident on 'Electric' and 'Sonic Temple' respectively). Given the relentless mainstream deification of the Angus Young band � sorry, AC/DC � Joel O'Keeffe and Company's formula of taking inspiration and adding perspiration seems canny; though witnessing Airbourne live suggests that such comparisons are simply born of a genuine passion for Rock & Roll, not cynical opportunism.

The title track is the band's equivalent of a seasonal poultry dish served up on the days following Christmas; it might be presented as something new, but they've already given it to us in one form or another before. Happily, the brooding 'Rivalry', compete with a subtle Billy Gibbons-style mid-chorus guitar lick, treads a less familiar path, while the raucous, fist-pumping 'It's Never Too Loud For Me' is unlikely to become the anthem of choice for Sanatogen & slippers types!

Conspiracy, insanity, mortality; throughout Rock's history certain themes have intersected albums. 'BOH' has a reoccurring motif too � booze. 'Thin The Blood' and 'When I Drink I Go Crazy' are the least subtle examples, the latter featuring the classic line "Standing drunk in the middle of the road, directing traffic like a ninja" � well, we've all been there! 'I'm Going To Hell For This' (did O'Keeffe say he disliked my ex's cat too?) has that classic Airbourne mid-tempo swagger, and, while it's far from original, when it's done this damn well there really are none better at serving up raw, bloody Rock & Roll.
