    7 new songs Jem?
  2.  
    I think a lot of people got Jem wrong. He said that he was told that 7 new songs were recorded, that was not an end total. Probably 10-15 were.

    Pedro Hodecker the longer it draws out, the older they get. They have to do something/announce soon. I still can't understand all the secrecy shit. If this is their final hurrah FFS let the fans know at least something. A wee taster like they did with RnR Train. A wee snippet of something. I have holidays to book next year lol

    Well yeah it’s over as far as you’re concerned because Axl isn’t coming back.

    You're absolutely right. If the Vancouver stuff was recorded for a new album, it'd be out by now. I'm afraid the boys are done.

    When even Pedro Hodecker starts to lose hope, things are not that hopeful in the AC/DC camp.

    7 tracks is hardly going to be an album, an album needs 10 at least to be credible, the Vancouver sessions 7 tracks are more likely to be part of a follow up to ‘Bon Fire’ than a standalone album

    Different era, great albums but times have changed, can’t see any way in this day and age a 7 strong album could be released for more than £7, you can buy a typical song off iTunes for 99p a pop

    I like to think of it as quality control. Imagine if Black Ice were 8 or 9 tracks, and they were comprised of all the great riffs/melodies and whatnot from the record we actually got. We’d have an absolutely killer record, right there.

    Nothing wrong with a 10+ track album, but there’s been filler on every record since at least Flick (varying amounts per record, of course), so lowering the quantity should increase the quality in a manner of speaking.

    Lowering the quantity only works if some of the tracks are actually quality.
    You can’t polish a turd either way.

    With this concept, I think ROB was way better than BI. Still, 7 songs on a AC/DC record are not reaching even the 35 mins mark.

    I think a band of the level of AC/DC could easily afford to have a 7 song album at this point.

    Would you honestly consider not buying the final AC/DC album just due to a relatively short track list?

    Collectors might still buy it, but if it's sold at a full price it would look like a theft. I'm pretty sure if they release an album the songs would be 10 at least, but at this point it's more realistic that what they have will end up on some boxset or something like that (and maybe just the best tracks).

    If those whatever number of songs were cooking they should have been released by now. At least a confirmatiom would be made of some kind.

    I'm always surprised how the "brand value" of AC/DC is severely underestimated on here.

    Furthermore they could easily add 2 or 3 previously unreleased tracks or even live tracks to justify a regular price etc.

    (And I know it's all hypothetical anyway, since no one knows how many "Vancouver" tracks there are)

    A regular price for what? I'm being serious here. Some people still buy CDs, and some people (me) are willing to buy vinyl, but most people do not go out and buy albums anymore (hard copy or digital). They pay a streaming service and have access to whatever is released. In this world there are still lots of albums being made, but you don't have to look at it as a price to song ratio. Release a single, release an EP. Release whatever you want to. Some fans will still purchase albums, but it's not a big revenue generator for a band.

    There are exceptions of course. Tool scored big "pure album" sales (at least initially) with a $40 CD that included a video screen. And fans couldn't wait to give them their money after a 13 year drought.

    The simple fact that ROB was even released on vinyl shows the slight comeback of LPs, and while most don't buy them, there's still certainly a market out there for both CDs and vinyl. I don't disagree that Spotify and youtube are the kings of music distribution these days, though.

    I would assume that most of the people that listen to entire ACDC records are also the kind of people to go and physically buy the record, because that's what they've always done. Even if not that, they probably want to support the band. Regardless of whether the band gets more of their revenue from physical sales or ad revenue on streaming services, there's no doubt to me that they will physically release anything that they also release on the internet. It took them long enough to even put their stuff on the internet/spotify in the first place, so I highly doubt that they'll just fully accept it and say that physical releases are things of the past.

    As to whether 7 tracks is enough for however much a CD or vinyl will cost, I don't know. LTBR was 40 minutes with 8 tracks, and ROB was 35 minutes with 11 tracks. They're of course more likely to make shorter songs these days (just looking at BI and ROB), but you never know. Perhaps the whole problem is the record company wants an actual record, while the band wants a compilation (actually, the other way around sounds more likely - Y/Y have always claimed that they're an "album and tour band").

    Who even said it was an album? Who even said that there were only 7 tracks? As always, we don't know enough to speculate reasonably.
  25.  
    A fair guess is they have put down an albums worth of material, 2/3 for a box set special but 7 for definite and time spent recording...there is a full album sitting there.

    Agree with all your points 100%.
    And Tool is a very good & very recent example:
    I think a "final" ACDC album would definitely be part of the exceptions for many reasons & while physical copies won't ever sell they way they once did, surly a last AC/DC album would sell fairly well on vinyl etc.
    (especially because of the nostalgia factor, since most ACDC fans grew up with physical copies)
  26.  
    Even if it was only 7 songs, it wouldn't be the end of the world. Especially if they put forth some real effort into them to be the best they can be. Some longer tracks above the 3 minute mark would also potentially help pad out the run time.

    Would be better to have 7 good to decent tracks over 10+ tracks with 4 or 5 or more fillers.

    Also, at this point we should be happy to get anything,"Oh only 7 isn't worth the price". For fucks sake sometimes I feel like we don't deserve anything at all.

    Most CD's are 10 to 12 bucks,unless it's loaded with some extras,multiple discs ect. Even still, there usually a cheaper single disc option. Downloads can be as much or less.

    Not to mention, this is likely the last AC/DC recording cycle with almost the BIB line up.
  27.  
    They most likely did more than 7, as some have suggested. Jem only stated 7 were known. There is plenty wiggle room in that statement for more to be in existence.

    I still have hope
