Stiff Upper Lip (2000) (EAST/WEST RECORDS)
STIFF UPPER LIP is the 15th Australian and 14th international album by Australian band AC/DC released in 2000. The album was recorded at The Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, British Columbia and mastered at Sterling Sound in New York City. The album was produced by George Young, older brother of Malcolm and Angus Young. The three singles to be released from it were the title track, "Safe in New York City" and "Satellite Blues". These three songs plus "Meltdown" and "Can''t Stop Rock ''n'' Roll" were played live on the subsequent world tour.
With STIFF UPPER LIP, AC/DC continued down the same road of consistency driven by Angus Young''s workmanlike riffing and Brian Johnson''s raspy yowl. As it had done for the two decades leading up to this release, the Australian quintet ignored outside musical trends. AC/DC charts its own straight-and-narrow course with equal parts swagger "House of Jazz", grinding defiance "Can''t Stop Rock ''N'' Roll" and smoldering menace "Meltdown".
AC/DC seasons the set with a handful of tried-and-true hard-rock anthems, including the call-and-response "Satellite Blues" and the crackling tomcat-anthem title track. Not surprisingly, quite a bit of sexual innuendo bubbles up throughout STIFF UPPER LIP, particularly on "Come and Get It" and "Give It Up." Ever the rock & roll traditionalists, AC/DC even includes an indictment of all things politically correct, "Damned."
The album was certified platinum in the U.S. for sales in excess of 1,000,000 copies.
