Over the course of 35 years, AC/DC has been accused of many things. But balladeering? Never! On their first studio album in eight years (available only at Wal-Mart, Sam's Club and acdc.com), the ageless adolescents slow it down on "Rock N Roll Dream." But fans needn't fret. While the onslaught is leavened by occasional wisps of slide guitar and tempos that ease back ever so slightly from hell-bent, Black Ice finds the Australian rockers at their headbanging, power-chord-crunching best.
