First listen.
Second listen.
The music on these first two tracks is good, but I'm not too excited about the lyrics ("Shoot to Thrill")
I like the frequency of the words throughout the song. That is, the words sufficiently fill parts of the song. ("You Shook Me All Night Long")
Initially I gave Back in Black a "1" but I thought the ratings were funny (because "You Shook Me All Night Long" got a "2") and listened to it again. Then I gave it a "3."

3: "Back in Black";
2: "You Shook Me All Night Long"; "Have a Drink on Me"; "Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution";
1: "Let Me Put My Love Into You"; "Shake a Leg";
0: "Hells Bells"; "Shoot to Thrill"; "Given the Dog a Bone"; "What Do You Do for Money Honey";

First, I wasn't able to crank up the music so I might not have gotten the full experience of the album. With that in mind, the album was still a good listen. In particular, even though I don't feel strongly about the tracks, it's an album that I could listen from start to finish. On a final note, I tried really hard during this album to think of "0" as average.

Overall Rating: 4.6/5
Favorite Song: "Back in Black"
