The release of a new Airbourne album is always going to divide music reviewers and listeners. You either like their brand of Aussie pub rock cum Acca Dacca impersonation or you don’t. New album Black Dog Barking delivers more of the same and when played at the appropriate volume, brings out singer/guitarist Joel O’Keefe’s inner Brian Johnson. Not Bon Scott however, as O’Keefe lacks his subtlety and knack for cheeky innuendo preferring the “subtle as a sledgehammer” simple lyrics as on previous albums. Fans don’t come to this band expecting subtle nuances and intellectual lyrical content but blistering rock ‘n’ roll. And in that regard, Black Dog Barking delivers in spades.
