I can honestly say that 'Get A Grip' is a darn good later day effort by them Boston bad boys.
Mike Reed
The band back him up flawlessly; "Amazing" is easily a highlight of this album; and I believe that it's one of their best songs ever as well.
Matthew G. Sherwin
Great album not a bad track, but Flesh does sound very similar to Vanity Fares Hitchin a Ride.
Daniel J. Cohen

This album is PACKED with songs - and they happen to be big songs that rock. Granted, it's produced with polish, but when you've got loads of money and you're in the big game (AND trying to keep your 2nd wind rolling with momentum in your third decade of relevance), there WILL be some "commercialization" to your music. But if I ever get any point across to anyone, hear ye hear ye: Commercialization doesn't have to be a bad word if you still back it up with your musical integrity.
Many people say that Get a Grip does not back up the integrity of Aerosmith. It's funny how in the early 90's, this album was the ONLY thing acceptable in the teenage mainstream (aside from Zeppelin and Floyd) that wasn't spelled with an N, an I, an R, a V, an N, ... you get the idea. So, when it was trendy to bash the 80's, Aerosmith sort of fell through the cracks of adolescent ridicule and sold millions of this record, and they have been paying for it with many "loyal and disappointed" fans ever since Grunge faded out and the late 90's gave way to the new Millenium. Now, many call the AmazaCrazyCryin trilogy a bunch of cheesy garbage. Funny how these are the same songs that were colossal hit singles with fans and newly-converted alike, back in 93-94. Then you've got your older generation who won't shut up about how Aerosmith will never rock like "Toys in the Attic."
So, as a fan of All Aerosmith Eras, I hope you can accept that as a chance for an objective (if passionate) review of "Get a Grip", when placed into the big picture.
First of all, in another 5 years, this album will probably be well-remembered again, and probably thought of as a classic, just as some of their 70's stuff (especially since word is they're going back to that direction at last).

Have always been an Aerosmith fan, even on their lp's that didn't do all that well. I can honestly say that 'Get A Grip' is a darn good later day effort by them Boston bad boys. I've heard a few mention how this CD just MAY be the band's best record since their 'Rocks' lp. Now, that's saying something. 'Get A Grip' is in my opinion anyway, a modern hard rock classic. Rips from beginning to end. Killer tracks include "Eat The Rich", "Shut Up And Dance", "Fever", "Line-Up", "Livin' On The Edge" (remember the video?), "Cryin'" and "Walk On Down" (which features guitarist Joe Perry on vocals). Sweet! No doubt. A must have for all fans. Highly recommended.

I've been a fan of Aerosmith for about four years now, and this is the fourth album by them that I've heard. Amazing or not, I like them all. The band is a legend already, and I believe that they'll be remembered as one of the greatest bands. The have their own unique sound, which you either like or not. I like it.
The album starts with Intro, a nice little piece of music. From thet we can smoothly move to Eat the Rich. The lyrics are fun, and this is a true Aerosmith rock song. After that comes the title song, Get A Grip. I have to warn you; someone burps loud at the very beginning of the song! Grip is another rock song, and Tyler's voice raises and raises in the "I get so excited" -part so that you'd think he'd explode any time. Fever comes after that; at first I didn't like the song, but then I got excited about it. Sounds to me a bit like Rolling Stones, and I also love Tyler's harmonica. Livin' On the Edge is probably the most famous song from this album, but it just doesn't chill me that much. Flesh is a bit like Fever, and once again we can hear the Demon Of Screaming at his best. This is a very energetic song. Walk On Down is Joe Perry saying "Hey I have a good song too, let's put it on the album!" I'm glad they listened to Joe as Walk On Down is easy-going but full of rock. Shut Up And Dance is one of my favorites, a rock song that makes you want to dance as they tell you to. And when you are tired after hard dancing, you can relax by listening to Cryin'. I like the song, but the live version on Little South Of Sanity is much better, it's a gem while this version sounds like a bad recording of a song that could have been better. The next song, Gotta Love It is my favourite. It rocks, has depth and power.

Ok so this may not be the best Aerosmith album, but it's still pretty darn good. I can't say that I have any complaints with any of the songs on this CD. It is like Aerosmith put all their sounds from the past 20 years and put them in a blender, and came up with this nice mix. My personal favorite song is "Eat the Rich", a hilarious song about what is wrong with rich people. I also like "Livin on the Edge", "Walk on Down", "Shut up and Dance", "Cryin", "Gotta Love it" , and "Amazing". "Amazing", probably the biggest hit off of this album, is like a 90's version of the ballad "Dream On". Also, "Cryin" and "Crazy" sound a lot alike, but "Crazy" is slower. This was the first Aerosmith album I got, thanks mostly to MTV, and I think it's still great and it's great to listen to in the car. If you are an Aerosmith fan, buy this album.
