Tribute to AC/DC Greatest Hits features ten of the Australian hard rock legends' biggest hits, performed by a mysterious group of session musicians calling themselves the Tribute All Stars. The funny thing is, AC/DC songs are so expertly crafted, yet so streamlined and unfussy, that to just “straight-up” cover them (as they do here) seems a little bit like finding a ten dollar bill on the floor, picking it up, replacing it with ten ones, then buying ten dollars' worth of something. There are a hundred bar bands on stage at this very moment playing these songs louder, drunker, and more convincing than anything on this glorified equipment demo.
