's hot streak began to draw to a close with For Those About to Rock We Salute You
. While Back in Black
was infused with the energy and spirit of paying tribute to Bon Scott
, it became apparent on the follow-up that the group really did miss Scott
more than it initially indicated. Brian Johnson
's lyrics started to seem more calculated and a bit clichéd, lacking Scott
's devil-may-care sense of humor. And the band itself slowed down the tempo frequently, sounding less aggressive and inspired. There is still some decent material here -- the title track, for example, which became a concert staple with cannon-firing sound effects.
