    When will that asshole die already. 

    It's funny right now you have people (NPCs) celebrating Biden as a "return to normalcy" and a win for "love and peace".

    Biden, the Vice president who killed Gaddafi, armed and trained Syrian rebels who went on to create ISIS, tried to invade Syria, supported the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan, involved in numerous scandals related to mass spying on the American people by American intelligence agencies, oversaw the foundation of BLM and mass unrest in democratic held cities. This country is unredeemable.

    Thats where both of the greatest lyricist of all time stepped in. The poetical value of the lyrics rose drastically when Young brothers started writing them. 

    *ekhem* Let's play ball ...

    It's clear Brian Johnson or the Young brothers couldn't come up with lyrics as good as those on Back In Black. Everytime Brian talks about Shoot To Thrill or Hells Bells, he always says he wrote them on the spot, to come up with those lyrics only one month after Bon's passing is miraculous to say the least. To say Brian wrote You Shook Me All Night Long because of the fast machine and motor clean lyrics is a lousy argument. Bon's lyrics were already finished before recordings. It makes sense they took his lyrics and made some arrangements.

    If someone want to dispute this, show me in the Brian Johnson era any album that is consistently as good as Back In Black. Bon Scott knew how to write songs, he took the band to the next level and he never got credit for this album (or FTATR or TS).

    I agree with the FTATR comparison. That's where my mind went, especially just the sound of it, and I don't say that in a negative sense (a lot of people don't seem to like that album). Big Mutt Lange-esque production. I also agree it's frontloaded. Brian sounds awesome. 

     

    Realize

    Demon's Fire

    Through The Mists of Time

    Shot In The Dark

    Wild Reputation

     

    ... are the one's I'd spin regularly. Witch's Spell coulda been on FTATR for sure.  Couple too many familiar mid-tempo's (Wild Reputation works for me)... but songs like Systems Down and Code Red are awesome in the verses and guitar work, I just don't like the choruses.

    I like the backup vocals when it's done like Dogs of War on RoB (or even Miss Adventure) more so than Kick You When You're Down or No Man's Land (too tinkered with in the studio). 

    I like Realize Rejection Mists Of Time and Witchs Spell. I think Demon Fire is too weak to be the second single. Realize has that Thunderstruck vibe and nostalgia that I like. I've been listening a lot to Realize and Mists of Time, the backing vocals are very well done, they sound evil but very hooky like those on the Razors Edge album.  Those breathing backing vocals on Mists of Time in particular are fantastic. Wild Reputation is very similar to Got Some RnR Thunder I like it. No Man's Land has that Money Made vibe too, the riffs are great.

    Judge Amy Coney Barrett

    Barrett wrote on the questionnaire she submitted to the Senate for her Supreme Court confirmation review, "One significant case on which I provided research and briefing assistance was Bush v. Gore." She said the law firm where she was working at the time represented Bush and that she had gone down to Florida "for about a week at the outset of the litigation" when the dispute was in the Florida courts. She said she had not continued on the case after she returned to Washington.

    During her hearings this week, she told senators she could not recall specifics of her involvement.

    "I did work on Bush v. Gore," she said on Wednesday. "I did work on behalf of the Republican side. To be totally honest, I can't remember exactly what piece of the case it was. There were a number of challenges."

    Separately, under questioning from Democratic senators, Barrett declined to commit to recusing herself from any Trump election case. Trump has speculated that the Supreme Court could face another major lawsuit over the November presidential contest. "I think this will end up at the Supreme Court," he said last month. "And I think it's very important that we have nine justices."

    Yea, but shit like this:

     

    and the Dominion software "glitch" almost guarantee this will be drawn out for weeks. Whether he actually gets the recounts, who knows at this point, but things could get real ugly real quick. Like I said, it isn't over til he actually leaves.

  7. I liked Black Ice because the band step outside their comfort zone and the songs were quite serious (Dream, Money Made, War Machine, Stormy May Day, Black Ice) and I thought Rock Or Bust was too corny and it felt unfinished.

    Ok I've listened to the album entirely, couldn't help myself. 

    Spoiler

    This album sounds like For Those About To Rock and Fly On The Wall and Black Ice. The first half of the album is amazing, Realize and Rejection are instant classics to me. They're very strong. A bit of Down Of The Bordeline and a bit of the Bon Scott era. Mists of Time is almost a power ballad but I like it very much in the same vein of Anything Goes and Rock The Blues Away. The second half is strong but that's where the AC/DC formula starts to bore me a little bit. I think Systems Down is the strongest of the bunch. Overall I'm so happy, this album is certainly a grower. The band sound like they will never stop. Brian sounds amazing! Backing vocals are off the hook!

    What 5 Albums would you Bring to a ''Desert Island'' for 1, 2 or 5 Years

    Must be boring to listen to the same five albums on repeat for many years . .

    I'd probably pick music I don't know. A Dylan album, a classical album, a jazz album etc. Or many Greatest Hits as I can. 

    If I had to pick five classic rock albums, I might choose Led Zep II, Danzig II, Bat Out of Hell, 1984, Let There Be Rock.

    Trump needed a big win last night and at best he scraped a draw.

    A draw. :lol:

    Biden proved last night he's incapable of being POTUS, he's probably the weakest candidate we've seen in a long time. He'll lock down the entire country, raise taxes, and destroy the U.S. energy industry, he ran off to the extreme left.
