Allow me to lower the level of discourse, if I may...
I thought AC/DC's "Ballbreaker" was an embarrassment, and not like I was expecting that much from a modern AC/DC alb anyway, but it was so bad I figured it was all over for them.
THEN: Stiff Upper Lip. Good. Suprisingly good. I went from "Well, this isn't too bad" at first listen, to "Hey, I actually kind of like this" after awhile, until I think I've finally decided that it's a pretty good record. Then I saw them do "Safe in New York City" live, and it was pretty fucking incredible.
I hope they keep putting out albums 'til Angus has to zip around the stage in a little electric wheelchair.
