3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best compilation at this point . . . July 15, 2002
By S B
Format:Audio CD
First of all, if you are looking for the BEST compilation of Aerosmith's "second coming" (the Geffen years, 1985-1994), then I would recommend the two-disc "Anthology" (2001), which includes all the songs here, digitally remastered, and some other good tunes that did not make the hit lists. If you want to go further into that era, I would then recommend "Permanent Vacation" (1987) and "Pump" (1989).
Second, if you are a passing fan looking for the BEST compilation of ALL of Aerosmith's music, I would recommend the newly-released "Oh . . .", which contains many of these songs remastered, the early classics ("Dream On", "Walk This Way", "Sweet Emotion", etc.), and hits from the records that were released after this compilation ("Don't Want to Miss a Thing", "Falling in Love", "Pink", "Jaded", etc.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Is the new Aerosmith really that different? October 29, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Um, is anyone else confused here? People talk about the "new" Aerosmith as being a ballad band and glossy, shiny pop. I've listened... and listened.... and listened. What I hear is the gritty hard rock band of the 70s with a *somewhat* greater emphasis on ballads, and on some songs a *somewhat* more polished feel. Some seem to find this reason to damn Aerosmith to everlasting hell. I don't. But to my ears I cna't honestly say that the "old" and "new" Aersomtih are really all that different. I bought Permamant Vacation when it first came put in 1987 and I never thought it was that different from their 70s material. Haven't Aerosmith always done ballads? And isn't Uncle Salty kind of "poppy"?(Who cares, the song's great anyway!)If anyone else is confused about the supposed existence of the evil "teenybopper" Doppelganger of the new Aerosmith, please click "yes" below. I personally like all Aerosmith phases. And this time at least, I like the Amazon review!

5.0 out of 5 stars I Admit It - I Love These Songs October 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Aerosmith already had done Greatest Hits releases, but Big Ones in 1994 caught them up with some of their latest tunes. How much you like this CD depends on how much you liked the band's music in that era. Some people thought it was great. Others hated any change from the raw-rocking sounds of the "younger Aerosmith" back in the 70s.

I have to admit that while I really love the Aerosmith of the 70s, I also thought that the Aerosmith of the 80s-90s was fantastic as well. Bands all change. You can look at most bands (let's say the Beatles) and track how their music evolved and changed as the band members themselves grew and matured. It seems unfair to me for any observer to say to a band, "You should keep playing the same way the rest of your life, because I enjoy it".

Start with "Love in an Elevator". I *love* that song! It's not full of deep meaning, it's not full of angst. It's bursting with great, lustful energy. Surely all of us have had that hormone-driven rush, where we just want to grab our partner in an elevator and have some fun! I love the rhythms, too.

Move on to "Rag Doll". Another song I love. She's a hot ticket, "never see ya leaving by the back door". Another great song for dancing around the living room to, enjoying life. Go right into "Dude Looks Like a Lady". I think this song is hilarious! C'mon, can anyone who listens to songs like "Octopus's Secret Garden" start to complain that all songs must be serious? Or do people who don't like Dude also frown on other "non serious" songs?

We get some serious songs in here, if that's what you're into. "Janie's Got a Gun" won a lot of acclaim when it was released, for addressing the pain and torment felt by sexually abused kids. That's not something you find in most rocker's music collections.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Desert Island Disc... March 19, 2003
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
Ah,Aerosmith,you know I never really heard much of them until seeing them on Wayne's World,and then hearing them play "Janie's got a gun" and I thought it was great.So I got "Toys In The Attic" on sale and I thought it was good but 9 songs wasn't enough,so then I got this,and my idea of rock was changed...forever.
I was pleasantly surprised by hearing Janie's Got a Gun again, but I soon found "Love in an elevator" to be my favorite,and it still is.Walk on Water was a little too much for me at first,but after a while its proved to be one of my favorites still.If it's ballads you want "Crazy","Cryin'",and "What it Takes" is what you shall get.If you want an epic "Livin' on the edge" is the best you can get in the music buisiness.There are countless great dance songs here,such as,"Rag Doll","Dude(Looks Like a Lady)",and my favorite,"Love in an Elevator".
There are 2 new songs here:"Walk on Water" and "Blind Man",but I don't really like Blind Man,and Walk on Water is kinda hardcore,but it's very good once you get used to it.
So there you go,an excellent album with everything going for it:great singing,great music,and great attidude.What can I say but:Rock on!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars livin' on the edge March 7, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I think this is one of the best music videos I've ever seen. It has their best from '87-'93. Here's the lowdown for people who don't know what's here: 3 hits from "Permanent Vacation", 4 hits from "Pump", 5 hits from "Get A Grip", plus a special video made for the collection for "Deuces Are Wild" from "Beavis & Butthead Experience" CD. I can't wait 'til Geffen gets off their a** and puts this collection on DVD. The downside to the collection is it don't have the (bar)video version of "What It Takes", "Walk On Water", or "Blind Man" with Pamela Anderson playing the nurse.

I'm a lover of this type of music. I get the MP3 downloads which hasn't been the best with Amazon's Downloading device this past 4 months which is why I knocked a star off.
