Nope. The song appeared on their second Aussie album "T.N.T"

Ahh. Oh well, we can cheat and say High Voltage is actually High Voltage Rock'n'Roll!

Shot In The Dark. Classic AC/DC. Love it. Enough said.

It's good. Solid. Great sound. Better than anything on ROCK OR BUST, more akin to STIFF UPPER LIP and BLACK ICE.

The dominant stereo single rhythm guitar is odd. Normally it's very left and right channel for each guitar even if they play the same thing.

After a couple more listens might actually be both, one in each side.....
Solid tune though.

Well what can you say...at least these guys don't agonize about coming up with "great stuff" like Mick, they just put out an album rehashing the same stuff and the fans are ecstatic, job done !

With the Stones it's the opposite!
They put out some new stuff? The fans are negative and very critical...especially on this forum!
AC DC fans are something special.

Just saw something about Fraternity, the band Bon Scott was in pre-AC/DC. Not sure how I've missed this in the past.

It's hilarious.

Finally gave it a listen. The song is a little slower than I'd expected, I must admit. It is OK. Perhaps I need to spend more time with it, but as of now, it isn't grabbing me the way a lot of their past stuff has - even Play Ball, which I really loved.

Lyrics-wise, 'Shot In The Dark' does not mean the thunder of cannons like 'Hells Bells' or any other shot - but a neat sip, as Angus Young reveals: "The title is a little bit cheeky because we all like a little nip [of alcohol] in the night or a few shots in the dark." - [au.RollingStone.com] , [www.En24.News] .

First, and good review, rock german mag ROCKS.


It is somewhat comforting that chatterbox Dee Snider doesn't know everything and that AC / DC are still the well-functioning secret society of yore: Older recordings of Malcolm Young cannot be heard on Power Up. Instead, singer Brian Johnson, bassist Cliff Williams and drummer Phil Rudd - and thus three other characters that are hugely important for AC / DC, whose participation seemed just as questionable for very different reasons as any other work by the greatest hard rock band on the planet. One cannot and does not want to believe that it could possibly be their very last: A harder, more coherent, with captivating groove and buxom gang choirs sly AC / DC album without interference was last released in the nineties; because even if traces of Rock Or Bust and Black Ice are difficult to deny, it is the lines between The Razors Edge (1990) and the gnarled Ballbreaker (1994) that tend to blur on Power Up. And that grips firmly. Not just in the choruses. Realize is about the same, whose vibe is roughly comparable to Down On The Border-line: guitar salvos like slapwipes, the bass pumps tightly as loudly, and under all this Phil Rudd puts his god-given drum coolness with which he presents the band steps forward. This is how AC / DC works. Rudd-Swing also has the single “Shot In The Dark”. If you want to, you will find parallels to Still Upper Up in the Gacker-Riff at the beginning, then with Shot Down In Flames it is wired and slowed down in tempo and temperament. It has been decades since the backing vocals on AC / DC sounded fuller and, above all, more casual, in general this is a great quality of Power Up. Through The Mists Of Time fakes one of those Jimmy Barnes numbers that caused discomfort on the last two records, but is then held down by a certain melancholy. It's fantastic how the simple choirs harmonize with the guitar theme, swell and give the song an unbelievable power at the finale, when it is actually long over. Unusually rhythmic is the catchy tune Kick You When You're Down with its ringing riffs, Witch's Spell and Wild Reputation are core meltdowns from Ballbreaker and The Razors Edge that have become clayey. In Demon Fire, Johnson's deep boogie man voice greets you (Joel O'Keeffe has to explain the parallel to Airboume's later recorded, Blood In The Water) before the number shoots off in a manner reminiscent of Safe In New York City - Nur with more song, with more pleasure and a lot more sound. In the last quarter they really crank it up again: No Man's Land will go down in history as the pearl of late AC / DC with its latent Southern Blues vibe - again it's Rudd and these stunningly laid back choirs who really get it . Money Shot: Classic AC / DC fabric with a sharpness that has not been heard for a long time. Someone should say that all AC / DC records sound the same: Such an album was really not to be expected.

On par with D&G? That is decent but unworthy of each band's legacy?

Nothing different from them but sounds [email protected] good, just good old r&r, which is just what I and a lot of us probably need!

I see Cliff is saying he only committed to a few shows...

Meaning a tour is in the works...

Post- vaccine of course.

So who's gonna play the rest of the shows? Could be an exciting guessing game!

Sad they can't tour. Maybe they have something on the books but I just can't see AC/DC touring they way they want to and truly should until like 2022.
