Editorial Reviews

These Boston boys are approaching the Stones in terms of rock 'n' roll longevity, and this limited-edition, custom-designed and handmade set is the ultimate career trophy. Inside are all 12 original albums by the band- Aerosmith; Get Your Wings; Toys in the Attic; Rocks; Draw the Line; Live Bootleg!; Night in the Ruts; Greatest Hits; Rock in a Hard Place; Classics Live; Classics Live II , and Gems -digitally mastered with Super Bit Mapping from the first-generation source tapes, complete with the original LP artwork and liner notes. Then come the bells and whistles-collectors' edition foldouts that include international memorabilia, vintage press clippings and authentic, behind-the-scenes studio notes detailing the rise, fall and rise of a rock 'n' roll band. And, here's the kicker-a previously unreleased five-track disc of long-sought-after Aero-rarities.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for any Aerosmith fan September 29, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This set contains all 12 of Aerosmith's early Columbia releases--7 studio albums, 3 live ones, an early Greatest Hits, and the album 'Gems', which I guess is another anthology. For many fans of their newer music, few of these tracks will be recognizable, maybe only a few from the Greatest hits. Still, this is a great way to discover Aerosmith at their height.
Besides the 12 original albums, this set includes a 5-track bonus disc, most notable for its rockin' rendition of 'Sweet Emotion' and the absolutely beautiful version of 'Dream On' (with a symphony!). These are two excellent remakes of a couple of Aerosmith's best songs.
The great thing about this set is that all the old albums appear exactly as they originally did (though they've been remastered). You don't have to worry about song selection because it's all here. So, for anyone wanting to start a good Aerosmith collection, this is the absolute best place to start.
This box set is highly recommended. Don't let the high price tag fool you--it's well worth every penny.

By Bill M.
Format:Audio CD
A lot of other reviewers here seem clueless as to why this box set was released the way it was. Some history might clear this up.

Aerosmith first signed with Columbia records in 1972. Then in the mid 1980s they cleaned up their drug habits and switched labels to Geffen records. After having quite a successful come-back, they then went back to Columbia records in 1994.

What does this have to do with the box set? Well you have to realize that in the music industry, the release of compilations, box sets, and even just re-releases of older albums is all largely determined by a band's record label. A record label obviously isn't going to make money off of an album put out by another label. This means that when a band releases a lot of albums under one record label but then leaves them for a new label, each label will handle things with their own best interest in mind. For example, the old stuff might get acquired and re-released on (and by) the new label, or the band will try to finish off their old contract by releasing a compilation album, etc.

It's no coincidence then that when Aerosmith joined back with Columbia in 1994, the label decided to re-release all 12 albums that they had done for Aerosmith. In addition to selling them separately, they also decided to put all 12 discs in this box set, "Box of Fire". So this box set simply contains all 12 individual Aerosmith albums that had been released up until then with Columbia records, plus a bonus EP of rarities.

This means you will NOT find anything from the albums Aerosmith did with Geffen. That means nothing from "Done With Mirrors", "Permanent Vacation", "Pump", or "Get a Grip".

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Buy If You Don't Already Own These Albums May 28, 2000
Format:Audio CD
By far the most comprehensive Aerosmith collection available. Box of Fire includes all of the band's Columbia albums with the exception of, of course, Nine Lives, and even adds a 5 cd bonus disc. The discs come remastered and with extensive linear notes. The only drawback to this excellent box set is the price. At around $100, it is too much for most listeners, but for those who are loaded you should definately get this collection, especially if you don't already own these albums. If you do though, you will almost certainly want to pass as there is nothing new here outside the five songs (of which you have probably already heard, and maybe even own, three) and the box itself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good music, but definitely not worth the price February 2, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The "Box Of Fire" brings together all of Aerosmith's releases for Columbia records, as well as a few rare tracks (of which the excellent "Rockin' Pneumonia And The Boogie Woogie Flu" is by far the most interesting).

All twelve albums have been digitally remastered, and the packaging is exquisite, with numerous photos and memorabilia from the era when each specific album was concerned.

The only problem with this lavish box set, and the reason why I'm only giving it 3 stars, is that it doesn't really add that much to the Aerosmith legacy.

By including all of their Columbia albums, including one great, one good, and one very mediocre live album, it almost makes itself obsolete...all these records are readily available (and have also been remastered since "Box Of Fire" came out), and the previous Columbia-era box set, the superb "Pandora's Box", contains many more rarities and previously unissued songs than "Box Of Fire" - and much more interesting ones as well.

And that's why I'm not all that impressed by this collection. Sure, the packaging is excellent, but there is very, very little here that the serious Aerosmith fan doesn't already own - if anything. And the casual fan will be better served by buying the best of these twelve albums individually, and perhaps adding "Pandora's Box"...Aerosmith's classic 70s albums have all been remastered as well.

Really brilliant box sets, like Stevie Ray Vaughan's "SRV", The Faces' "Five Guys Walk Into A Bar", and Bob Dylan's "Biograph", include all the hits and most of the best album tracks, as well as many rarities and unreleased songs. But "Box Of Fire" indiscriminately throws together all of what is already there, adding five "rarities" of which only one is truly great (and truly rare).

how much does it weight
As far as mail, i'd say a box this size with 12 discs would be approximately 2 pounds.
