Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

While not quite as exemplary of the Boston quintet's '70s sound as Toys in the Attic or Rocks, Get Your Wings was impressive both in terms of its material and its measurable improvement over Aerosmith's debut. From the R&B inflected "Same Old Song and Dance" to the power-rock "Woman of the World" to the rollicking cover of "Train Kept a Rollin'," Wings showed the band solidifying their sound and really taking flight for the first time. --Genevieve Williams

5.0 out of 5 stars Aerosmith's Sophomore Effort August 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Get Your Wings(1974). Aerosmith' s Second Album.

In 1974, Aerosmith was some what of a sensation in Boston, where their constant touring and high octane hard rock endeared them to thousands of fans. Their debut, a fantastic mix of hard rock and gritty blues tracks, helped Aerosmith develop a cult following around Boston, not unlike The Grateful Dead. Fans considered Aerosmith "the next Led Zeppelin" , and when 'Get Your Wings' was released, fans eagerly picked up the album. Although not popular until many years later, 'Get Your Wings' eventually went multi-platinum and contained the hit singles "Same Old Song And Dance" and "Train Kept A Rollin'.

By 'Get Your Wings', Aerosmith began to sound more and more like the band that produced classic songs like "Walk This Way" and "Back In The Saddle". Steven Tyler's singing voice began to take on the high-pitched, over-the-top sound that made him one of the most identifiable singers in rock n' roll. Aerosmith even began to branch out their songs, playing more original, experimental, and darker tracks that distinguished them from other blues and Led Zeppelin clones. "Same Old Song And Dance", an Aerosmith classic, pits distorted, kick ass blues guitar against Stephen Tyler's energetic, in-your-face singing. "Lord of Your Thighs" is a slower, percussive hard rock track that is very dark and gritty. "Spaced" is a "spacy" rock track, with an emotional, trippy verse, complete with "epic" sounding guitar work. Definitely one of Aerosmith's most different and inspired songs. "Woman of the World" is a folk and blues inspired hard rocker, and has the sound of a guitar "orchestra", much like early Led Zeppelin. "S.O.S.(Too Bad)" is a loud, brazen hard rocker that is your typical Aerosmith.

5.0 out of 5 stars My all time Aerosmith favorite album January 28, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Get Your Wings is such a killer masterpiece, of all the Aerosmith albums out there, this is my #1 favorite cause Steven Tyler's voice is improving and they were starting to sound like themselves, I mean their debut was good but this is even better,
'Same Old Song and Dance' is a radio staple and it has a killer classic groove and the horn section of the Brecker brothers. 'Lord of the Thighs' is one of Aerosmith's most humorous songs of all time and they got the title from the novelty Lord of the Flies. 'Spaced' which has a spooky intro and it is one of Aerosmith's underrated gems. 'Woman of the World' the intro sounds like 'Lord of the Thighs' another killer tune. S.O.S. (Too Bad) a live staple which has a sing along chorus. 'Train Kept A Rollin' which was originally written way back from 1951 and it was done by numerous bands but Aerosmith got this one from The Yardbirds (w/ Jeff Beck on guitar). 'Seasons of Wither' is one of Aerosmith's best ballads (even Joe Perry admits that all of the ballads they've done, it was the only one he cared for, and it's even better than their 1990's ballads) and it should've been on the original Greatest Hits CD. And for the closing track, 'Pandora's Box' is the first song that drummer Joey Kramer wrote (he also wrote the classic 'Kings and Queens' from the Draw the Line album).
If you're a classic Aerosmith fan and want to own an album, get this album, while not as successful as Toys in the Attic and Rocks but this album goes to show you that Aerosmith can rock.
Plus one thing that I didn't tell you was that this album marked the debut of producer Jack Douglas, who produced Aerosmith from Get Your Wings to Rock in a Hard Place (with the exception of 1979's Night in the Ruts).

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly �Classic� Classic Rock April 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Among the finest hard rock albums of all time. Aerosmith fans from the post-Run DMC era who have yet to discover what the fuss was all about should look no further. Nothing Aerosmith has done since `Rocks' shakes my tree, but `Rocks,' `Toys,' and especially this monster disc comprise some of the most stirring and potent hard rock in the era where it became the industry standard (you know, pre-disco, pre-punk, pre-new wave).
The production took a quantum leap from their debut LP (`Aerosmith'), and the songs flow effortlessly (catch the amazing brain-fogged transition between `Lord of the Thighs' and `Spaced'). Every song is powerful in its own right, but this is most undeniably an "album," and needs to be heard in its entirety to be fully appreciated (unlike, say, `Toys', which is more of a singles collection).
The Tyler libido was in full flower, long before the `80's and `90's when it became self-parody. `Lord of the Thighs' and `Pandora's Box' are prime (primed!) examples. `Train Kept a Rollin' still stands as the best version (by miles) of this song I've ever heard. This and `S.O.S.' give a curiously "live" feel, while `Spaced' and `Wither' are definitely very studio, very insular tracks (probably best suited for the headphone aficionado - "under the influence," of course).
Why are you still reading this? If you don't have it, all you have to do is click a little button. You will be rewarded many times over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aerosmith's train has arrived and a rollin'... June 16, 2002
Format:Audio CD
After a terribly underrated debut album, Aerosmith manage to catch the attention of North America with this amazing masterpiece.
While it's always bad to judge a cd but it's design cover, let's just go ahead and do it. Here you have a black and white photograph of the band with a black background. Kinda different compared to their debut album with them all in color and with clouds around them. This album is definately black...very hard, raw, and gritty. Very heavy hard rock'n'roll here.
This album was a huge success the year it was released. Today, this album is often sadly pushed away from 'Toys In The Attic' as well as 'Rocks'. While I love both albums with my heart, this is what really started their rock 'n' roll story.
The album starts off with 'Same Old Song And Dance' which has long been a concert favorite. But the magic doesn't quite happen till you next head for 'Lord of the thighs'. A strange yet great song. It sets the dark tone of the album. Next you get 'Spaced' and 'Woman of the World' which are probably the darkest Aerosmith songs i've ever listened to in my life. Next you have a short semi-fast paced 'SOS (too bad)' which helps to give out a little relief from the dark attitude. Finally you head for the Yardbird's cover of 'Train kept a rollin' which is another huge concert favorite among fans and the band. Some great guitar solos in it. Next you come to another sweet and melodic favorite among fans, 'Seasons of Wither'. Although supposed to be a ballad, it seems very much in-line with a dark tone to it. Still very beautiful and beats the hell out of 'I don't want to miss a thing (ugh). And then finally, we end with 'Pandora's Box' which is accompanied by a nice saxophone with an RnB side to it.
Overall, a great album.
