Well, how do you like this? We’re two days away from a new AC/DC album, and we get a new track to keep the hype on high!
Realize will be Power Up‘s opening track and it is pretty good. It has a Thunderstruck vibe with the chanting, chord changes, and a faint lead lick throughout. Not exactly on the same level, but it has the vibe.
I do find the opening to have a bit too much going on. I know constant reader Lana will only hear Phil Rudd’s high hat but, there is also a guitar lead, opening chords, a vocal chant that the guitar then doubles…. Phew! Maybe I’m just not accustomed to it yet.
But I forgive it all once the groove kicks in. That’s the best part.
Angus’ solo is just some sliding up and down on the lower half of chords which is a good news for me. Finally, an easy solo for me to learn!
Anyway, I’m still stoked for the new album. I was going to buy it regardless if this song sucked, but thankfully it doesn’t!
