Ballbreaker is the thirteenth studio album by Australian hard rock band AC/DC. It was released in 1995 and was produced by Rick Rubin. The album was a commercial success, reaching number four on the Billboard 200 chart in the United States. It was certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
The album was a return to form for AC/DC, after their previous album, The Razors Edge, was seen by some fans as a departure from their classic sound. Ballbreaker featured the band's signature sound of hard rock anthems with catchy riffs and powerful vocals. The album spawned the hit singles "Hard as a Rock", "Hail Caesar", and "Ballbreaker".
The album was well-received by critics, with many praising the band's return to form. AllMusic gave the album a four-star rating, calling it "a triumphant return to form". Rolling Stone gave the album three-and-a-half stars, saying that it was "a solid, satisfying hard rock album".
Ballbreaker is considered by many fans to be one of AC/DC's best albums since Back in Black. It is a must-have for any fan of classic hard rock.
