Genre: heavy metal

"The Razor's Edge" is a glorious return, and probably AC/DC's most purely metal release ever. Personally, in terms of the quality of the music, "The Razor's Edge" is up there with "Back in Black" and "For Those About To Rock (We Salute You)".

The biggest hit from this album is "Thunderstruck" with its superbly brilliant build-up, but there are plenty of other really nice track on this album, such as the title track with its heavy metal sensibilities and the other hit "Money Talks". "Fire Your Guns" has an energetic hard rocking face basher of a main riff which also goes for "Are You Ready", while "Mistress for Christmas" has a humorous feel to it.

Really, if you like traditional metal or hard rock, do yourself and check out "The Razor's" Edge. It's not a coincidence that it was one of the biggest hit albums of 1990.
