Each song has an infectious beat, blended with a powerhouse of a voice, that will knock you out.

From the moment the first power chords ring out you know that this listening experience is going to be pure joy! This Black Aces debut album is unashamedly good time Rock 'n' Roll. You'd be forgiven for thinking that they've simply copied fellow Aussie countrymen AC/DC, but there's more to them than that. In fact, they are more akin to Airbourne with their fast-paced delivery and a raw edge just waiting to make your ears bleed.

The title track, first of the thirteen here, has Tyler Kinder putting life and soul into belting out a wicked vocal whilst making his lead guitar work scream equally well. 'A Girl Like You' and 'Back On The Chain' both pound out a freight train rhythm and show how tight the band are, with Jarrad Morrice's rhythm guitar and Alex & Pete McMillan on bass and drums respectively locking things down. 'I'm Your Nightmare' brings in some imaginative fret-board work from Kinder, but also sees a strained vocal performance in the first half, although things get back on par after a stunning guitar solo. Kinder's voice is very youthful with oodles of power – imagine Bon Scott taken up a semitone or so. It certainly fits these surroundings perfectly.

The albums subject matter of girls, partying, highways and lust are standard Rock foundations, but here, exuberant and dynamic delivery bring each track alive without resorting to fancy effects or multi-tracking. This is grass roots Rock at its best! Embracing their high voltage, counter-parts song construction techniques, sees 'Burning Up The Highway' taking the stage as the twin brother to 'It's A Long Way To The Top' and holds its ground brilliantly. If you're not banging your head to this one, then you're probably dead! All too quickly the last track 'Wanted Man' (or 'Problem Child'?) comes around, leaving you yearning for more.

There's nothing out of the ordinary here, but with not a single bad track on the album, what is abundantly clear is that Black Aces' passion for what they do comes across in their sound. Each song has an infectious beat, blended with a powerhouse of a voice, that will knock you out. If back to basics Rock is your thing, then get yourself 'Shot In The Dark' as they could well take up the mantle where others are falling by the wayside!
