Airbourne released their 5th album, ‘Boneshaker’, on October 25, 2019 and they delivered an album that is a fist to the face, elbow to the gut, knee to the balls rock & roll album in the vein of AC/DC that will have you cranking the volume as high as it will go so you can hear every distorted guitar note, head-pounding drum beat, wall vibrating bass notes and Joel O’Keefe’s Bon Scott/Brian Johnson style vocals and lyrics that scream Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll and also give you the longest run-on sentence I could possibly come up with while writing this review for you, my favorite people in the blogging world.
There is no need going through every song, one by one, because Airbourne only know how to deliver one style of song and that style is loud and guitar heavy rock & roll. As the sticker on the front of the album states…
…and they are not lying. This next line might sound bad, but it is true and is actually what I love about the band. If you’ve heard one ‘Airbourne’ album you have heard them all. They are unapologetically bringing heavy-ass Aussie rock to the world and that is actually what I love about them.
The songs titles, well, they are exactly what you would expect. Mentioning Rock & Roll, drinking, sex, hell and every other cliche in the book. It is awesome!!
