Ugh ..this is kinda painful. I was hoping Aerosmith would stay away from these cheesey power ballads they have been doing about the last 20 plus yrs. The song they released prior,"Legendary Child " I am kinda on the fence about. My opinion they probably need to break camp after this. I would like to see Perry do some more solo stuff and Whitford do some things also. It's hard for me to believe this is Joe's and Brad's vison of the band to continue putting up medicore, subpar at times radio friendly music. There are some songs I do like they have done over the last few, but come on guys, lets get back to what made you one of the greats. Maybe I am judging to quick since I have not heard the whole thing yet.

I heard "Legendary Child" and immediately thought of Get A Grip and it turns out that's an unused song from that period. i heard this one you posted is a ballad so I didn't want to hear it for the reasons you mentioned. I love the Joe Perry solo stuff and i was excited when I thought Aerosmith might be on hiatus for a while and the Joe Perry Project would tour a little more. Brad is an amazing player too and his work on Experience Hendrix tours is fantastic. I was hoping for some old school Aero-rockin' on the new album especially since they've played Toys and Rocks in their entirety recently, but I don't consider Get A Grip to be old school Aerosmith. of course I'm one of the few that thinks Done With Mirrors is a great record. Under produced yes, but it rocks hard and they still that X factor. After that they lost it, except for Pump which I also hold in high esteem, especially for the "new" era. I'll probably still buy the new disc. I hope there are some rockin' tunes on there. I was devastated by the suckassery of Just Push Play.

I have not followed some of the Aerosmith releases you guys mention above, but I do love me some Aerosmith and am disappointed by what I am reading here. Steven Tyler has such a great voice for rock. He can sing the heck out of a ballad too, but I miss the raw stuff - I'll take "You've Seen Me Crying" for a ballad, but give me "No More, No More" or "Back in the Saddle."

The last new Aerosmith project I checked out was "Honkin' On Bobo," which I took out from the library with high hopes. While I would rather hear originals, this was their bluesy all-covers album that was supposedly them getting back to their down'n'dirty roots. I don't know that I even got all the way through it. Pretty overproduced and sterile, or so I thought on one listen. Maybe I should get it again to give it another chance.

There are some real good tracks on the new one. Have some faith. Not saying that it is a return to Toys or Rocks like the band always claims. But there are some smokers this time around and I think many will be pleased.

Brad got a little pissed that they brought in those power ballad songs near the end of recording sessions.

I think this will be their better album of the new era.

Even What Could have Been Love is better than their usual ballads. Lots of nice guitar work and even some slide work. Different production on a similar theme but I prefer it.

All the other songs that I have heard so far have rocked pretty good. Lots of guitar layers.

That's good to hear. I love Brad Whitford. I even have the Whitford St. Holmes album. On vinyl and CD so that's about 50% of the sales right there lol. Talk about smokin' guitars. Brad lays it down on that record. I miss his tunes on Aerosmith albums. Last Child, Nobody's Fault, Round And Round, Voodoo Medicine Man etc. There should always be at least one Brad tune so they need about 5 on this new one to make up for GAG, Nine Lives and JPP etc.

As to Honkin' On Bobo, it's definitely over produced but the performances are pretty hot. And you got Joe Perry singing "Back Back Train" and "Stop Messin' Around." I love it when Joe sings.

It'll turn up eventually. Maybe it was Brad's Mom.

High five brother!!!! I love Done With Mirrors. That was the first concert I went to when Aerosmith was suporting it. Nugent opened.

I remember at the end of the show Perry was having some problems with his amp and he went back and pulled the whole stack crashing to the floor. Quite an impression on a 14yr old at that time.I thought that was the coolest thing!!!

Some of my favs from DWM.
My Fist your Face
Shelia
The Reason A Dog
Shes On Fire

The Reason A Dog is such a great tune, She's On Fire with JP on slide. The Hop is a kickass boogie tune and I really like Tyler's lyrics to Let The Music Do The Talking better than the original. My Fist... is another high energy rocker too. My enthusiasm for that record grows every time I hear an Aeroshlock song. That whole record is pure rock & roll. I begged my parents to drive my 14 year old ass to see Aerosmith & Ted Nugent on that tour but they respectlessly declined. I was too young to get myself the 60 miles away to see the show. I saw the tour opener for Permanent Vacation though which was before the hits and BS and they were still playing old stuff like SOS (Too Bad) & Seasons of Wither. Still my favorite Aerosmith show. Once they stopped closing shows with Train Kept A Rollin' in the 90's I knew the band had changed for the worse.
