aerosmith - get a grip

this is another album i bought in high school and another one i probably haven't listened to since i was in high school. i guess i got it primarily for the track _livin' on the edge_ that was popular at the time. i still like that one ok. the part when it cuts out to the wind blowing and then the kick drum starts pounding sticks out in my mind.

looking back over the track list, i probably wouldn't have bought it in the age of mp3s. seriously.. eat the rich? who is singing this? hobo steven tyler? aerosmith does a mix of fun and serious songs across their discography. i like many of both of them, but the serious side definitely wins on this album. the trilogy of ballads on this one - cryin', crazy, and amazing were big hits with the alicia/liv videos.

not much to say about aerosmith that hasn't been said before. hopefully some of my cds will make for more interesting entries.


I don't recognize this album, as in my universe, Aerosmith disbanded after recording "Pump" and thus avoided the embarrassing trauma of albums that range from mediocre to terrible largely due to hiring professional songwriters to crank out sterile radio-friendly hits with videos that extended their career because Tyler had a young hot daughter.

I would, however, like to watch hobo Steven Tyler fight with boxcar Neil Young in a railyard somewhere. I would find that quite entertaining.

someone call don king and let's get this thing going
