Single Status Update
AC/DC's new DVD set kicks ass. They scoured the globe, searched for old-ass films and dusted off the archives of national TV networks. And it was worth it.
I think what makes AC/DC so damn awesome is the live show. Sure, on a CD they sound pretty good, until Fly on the Wall, but when it's live, it just seems to be better. Even once-crappy songs like Flick of the Switch just gain this extra bad-ass edge.
I dunno how many of you all dig AC/DC, and to what extent, but if you liked the Bon Scott era, there's some pretty memorable shows / songs on the first DVD, which is all Bon Scott.
I got the three-disc set and it came with some stickers, repos of backstage passes, and a sweet poster, plus a booklet with words and peekchars! I haven't checked out the third disc yet, but I will soon.

on another AC/DC note, since you mentioned it, The Razors Edge is when they started to not suck again, Ball Breaker saw the return of Phil Rudd and a return to their earlier blues/rock sound.
Cover You In Oil could have used a little work (it doesn't get any more repetitive than that) but the rest of that album rocks.
So, the band is apparently actually in their studio recording their next album now and not just saying they are.
Always hated AC/DC though.
Only Losers hate AC/DC.
No band that has even an average recording job will ever sound better live. If they do, then they should do more than a first take while recording the album.
Well, that, or you need a better home stereo system - sometimes I forget not everybody listens to music on studio equipment :P
SYL's Oh My Fucking God sounds much, much cleaner on No Sleep Till Bedtime than on City! I remember having a tough time deciding out which was actually the actual original version back in the AudioGalaxy days. Then again NSTB is one of the best recorded live albums I know. THEN again, Devin Townsend is a great producer.
Also, there are some slight mistakes in Dream Theater's Scenes From A Memory that the band manages to correct in the live version of the album.
