Saw AC/DC (plus AC/DC ranked, suckas)

Saw them in Dublin, Ireland, a few days ago on the European leg of their Rock Or Bust Tour. Even if you don't like their studio albums, you cannot deny that they are a powerful live presence. It is my third time seeing them and they sounded just as great- if not better- than ever, just a shame that Malcolm is no longer there (couldn't give a toss about Phil Rudd). Anywho, here is my ranking of their studio efforts.
Highway to Hell

Really equal to Back in Black below, just putting it here because Bon Scott.
Best songs: Highway to Hell, Shot Down in Flames, Night Prowler
Back in Black

See above, they did the impossible and replaced the irreplaceable. Brian Johnson is a spectacular rock vocalist who helped to keep the spirit of AC/DC alive.
Best songs: Back in Black, You Shook Me All Night Long, Shoot to Thrill
Let There Be Rock

Best songs: Whole Lotta Rosie, Let There Be Rock, Problem Child
High Voltage (International)

International debut.
Best songs: It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock and Roll), TNT, High Voltage

Best Songs: Rock N Roll Damnation, Kicked in the Teeth, Riff Raff
Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap

Best songs: Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, Love At First Feel, Ain't No Fun (Waiting Round to Be a Millionaire)
Special mention: 'Big Balls' has to be heard to be believed.
For Those About to Rock We Salute You

Second album with Brian Johnson and more or less 'Back in Black' Part II. Still killer.
Best songs: For Those About to Rock We Salute You, Let's Get it Up, Breaking the Rules
The Razors Edge

It opens with the best rock song of all time ever, that's why.
Best songs: Thunderstruck, Are You Ready, Moneytalks
'74 Jailbreak

Cool little EP with some tracks previously only released in Aussie.
Best songs: Jailbreak, Show Business, Soul Stripper
Flick of the Switch

Getting a bit samey at this stage but still some great stuff.
Best Songs: Nervous Shakedown, Flick of the Switch, Guns For Hire
Who Made Who

A greatest hits album in all but name.
Best songs: While 'Who Made Who' is the only new track, the rest are pure classic AC/DC.
Rock or Bust

Their best album in years. Rocks the fuck out.
Best songs: Rock or Bust, Play Ball, Rock the Blues Away
Iron Man 2

Like 'Who Made Who' above, essentially a greatest hits album. No new tracks here though.
Best songs: All tracks here are classics.

A nifty collector's item with rarities both live and in studio. The special edition I have also has vinyls and functions as a mini guitar amp!
Best songs: It's all worth a listen if you're a fan, to be honest
Stiff Upper Lip

Best songs: Stiff Upper Lip, Satellite Blues, Safe in New York City
Black Ice

Never understood why this was so maligned, it may sound very similar to previous albums but it still rawks /m/.
Best songs: Rock N Roll Train, Big Jack, Black Ice

Not a whole lot new studio-wise but a cool collector's item nonetheless.
Best songs: It's all good, really

Best songs: Ballbreaker, Hard as a Rock, Hail Caesar
Fly on the Wall

Bit meh, really.
Best songs: Danger, Shake Your Foundations, Fly on the Wall
Blow Up Your Video

Okay, even I'll admit this is a bit shite.
Best songs: Heatseeker, This Means War, That's the Way I Wanna Rock N Roll.
