Pure r'n'r but...
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 02/04/2012 12:45:12
I bought this album to discover this band. I was curious to listen to such a r'n'r band so disputed.
This is a pure hard rock album, well played and produced for sure, but it's dull: each song it's similar, based on a working riff repeated. So if you like the first song, you'll get the pleasure from the entire album!

Just saw them at the NIA Birmingham as guests of the Metal Gods Iron Maiden, they are awesome. I bought the album a few months ago when I knew I was gonna see them and they have a great album, I really like their music and on stage they just keep moving... running and constantly head banging transferring their energy to the crowd in front of them. Surely they will give us more great music in the future just keep Runnin' Wild!!!!

Believe the hype
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 24/07/2010 11:32:46
Every once in a while, the music media will trumpet the praises of a new band/musician's debut album, calling it "the best" such and such "in ages". The problem with this is that these praises are usually the result of 'payola' or some other type of unethical bribery. This results in a jaded perception of new bands among the public.
Going into listening to Airbourne, I was incredibly skeptical. Every underground rock fan and their mother was going on about them. I thought it was mere hype like always. However, in this case, I was wrong.
Runnin' Wild is one of the best Hard Rock albums released in the last seven years, arguably even longer than that. There is no favouritism here; the album is a budding classic which cannot be denied. Everything on the album is sharp, hard, and raw, and kicking. The riffs on the main tracks are Grade-A, and the vocals are just the right amount of awesome.
If they keep this up, they'll be a household name.
Get it now.

AC/DC for the next generation!
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 01/06/2009 18:22:07
This album has raised the bar in terms of rock! This new young band is the next ac/dc and is all generation from old to young. The first track builds you up for the rest of the album and thankfully you are never brought back down. As the riffs get longer the energy still stays the same. This is a must for anybody who wants to let there hair down (guys only), will keep you rocking to the dawn of time. Joel is excellent at keeping you listen to his excellent vocals and loves to get the crowed involved at live shows.
Buy it now or live in damnation forever!!

Grade A Aussie rock for AC/DC fans
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 31/01/2009 19:28:41
This is an excellent debut from Aussie rock band Airbourne. If you like fellow-Aussies AC/DC then you'll love this, as you get 11 tracks of solid AC/DC-derived rock with some great guitar riffs and vocal hooks.
Especially good value is the CD/DVD edition, presently cheaper than this standard one (which accordingly gets 4* instead of 5* for content and value). Get that CD/DVD edition which includes footage of 8 live tracks from Wacken 2008 (unfortunately though, all are tracks from the album - a couple of non-album ones would have been welcome) and 3 music videos ("Runnin' Wild", "Too Much, Too Young, Too Fast" and "Diamond in the Rough").
Whatever you do don't buy the vastly overpriced Aus import. All you get that's different is "Hellfire" replaced by "Let's Ride" and bearing in mind what I say next, that's not worth bothering about or paying more for.
My one minor criticism of this album is that the tracks are a tad samey but then that's exactly what you got to a large extent with AC/DC.

How refreshing it is that this album came along! With many so called "rock" bands nowadays churning out rubbish albums it's good to see that there are some musicians who still know what rock music is all about. They will draw the obvious comparisons with AC/DC but I feel these guys will get stronger with every album so give them time. Not a track to be skipped on this album - absolutly brilliant, good old adrenaline pumping rock.

Just what the doctor ordered.
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 25/11/2008 11:11:02
This is a very good album.
With anthems such as "Diamond in the Rough" and "Running Wild" standing out on this album. Saw them live and those tracks were definately the crowd pleasers. Along with "Stand up for Rock and Roll" and "Blackjack" also being big hitters on this record.
It gets slightly samey towards the end but it's by no means bad. "Cheap Wine and Cheaper Women" is a class track and with the ultimate "Hellfire" bringing the album to a head-splitting close.
They are upbeat and very catchy.
Some might say the modern-day ACDC.

Good stuff, but far from perfection.
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 20/11/2008 14:40:00
I'd never heard of this band until seeing Runnin' Wild on TV. I took a liking to Airbourne straight away, and didn't hesitate to buy this album.
It starts off perfectly, "Stand up for rock n' roll" and "Runnin' Wild" are bang on the button, true head banging stuff. Then about half way through, things start to get a bit repetitive and the songs lose the originality that the first tracks did. Some remain enjoyable, but sometimes you'll think that you're listening to the same song again.
I also think the drumming couls have been a bit more manic, it's the same beat over and over again, just faster or slower depending on which songs you listen to.
Overall, it's still a good album. But you won't love it forever.
