Editorial Reviews

Over a remarkable 30 years, Aerosmith has delivered near-perfect hybrids of rock and balladry, converting generations of listeners into devout fanatics. O, Yeah! Ultimate Aerosmith Hits drives chronologically through 30 of their best songs, providing a tour of the construction process. And what a process! Listen to "Mama Kin" and you might not recognize Aerosmith at all--here is a young Tyler, before finding his distinctive gritty wail, fronting a simple blues-bar band. But the phenomenal energy and synchronization that developed between Tyler and Perry starts here, and is followed up by successive wonders. "Dream On" captures plodding despair; "Last Child" bears witness to Tyler's mastery of harmony and shriek; "Back in the Saddle" explodes with swagger. Built from the low-end up, Aerosmith's heavy kick, driving bass lines, steady rhythm guitar, and blaring exclamation-point horns create a perfect foundation. And the dirty, harmonic souls of Steven Tyler and Joe Perry do what they do best--put on an over-the-top, flawless show. --Laura Etling

I think everybody who lives in America and owns a radio or television has heard an Aerosmith song, it's near impossible not to have. Like many, I knew of a handful of catchy, rockin' songs from classic rock radio and mp3 downloads. I was also somewhat confused as why not one retrospective had songs from their early and latter days on it, then I found out it was due to them changing labels in the mid-80s. This is the only Aerosmith compilation to feature songs from their Columbia and Geffen days on it and it makes a great buy for people who are interested in exploring their back catalogue, or just want those famous radio hits.
A seasoned Aerosmith fan might want this for the bonus tracks, the Run D.M.C. version of 'Walk This Way' and the two new songs, the single, 'Girls Of Summer' and the ballad 'Lay It Down. This also features the single from the Armageddon movie, 'I Don't Want To Miss A Thing.' A diehard might already have the soundtrack for that song or even the Run D.M.C. cd too but they're always nice to have grouped with other Aerosmith material. The remastered sound is loud and clear, a definite plus for audiophiles. The only glaring errors I see off-hand are the omissions of the popular 'Eat The Rich,' 'Toys In The Attic,' and their cover of 'Come Together,' songs even a beginner like me has heard on the radio. The latter two appear on the European import of this same compilation, but unfortunately you have to pay that European import price. Why the domestic release left those two songs off is beyond me. Aside from those minor negatives, this is the definitive Aerosmith compilation for beginners interested in America's ultimate rock 'n roll band.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother October 4, 2002
Format:Audio CD
What a waste. Columbia/Sony could've compiled 2 discs worth of all of the great songs from Aerosmith's first seven studio albums and paired them with stuff from "Nine Lives", "Just Push Play", and the "Armageddon" soundtrack (all on the Columbia/Sony label), and by putting that against Geffen's "Young Lust: The Aerosmith Anthology", you would've had four CD's worth of truly ALL the Aerosmith hits. But Columbia had to cop out and partner with Geffen, the label responsible for navigating the band's triumphant late-80's comeback, to shoehorn in the usual array of hits that had already been covered on "Big Ones" and again on "Young Lust".
So instead of the "ultimate" collection, you are left with plethora of missing tracks: "Toys In The Attic", "No More, No More", "You See Me Crying", "Train Kept A-Rollin", "Sick As A Dog", "Lightning Strikes", "Kings And Queens", "Come Together", "Remember (Walking In The Sand)", "What Kind of Love Are You On", "Hole In My Soul", "Fly Away From Here", etc.
If you want to come as close as you can to collecting all of Aerosmith's hits without having to get all of the original albums, pick up "Greatest Hits", "Gems", and "Young Lust: The Aerosmith Anthology". The latter collects pretty much everything you could ask for from their Geffen years, and the first two are decent overviews of their first six classic albums (severely edited versions of "Same Old Song And Dance", "Sweet Emotion", and "Kings And Queens" aside). Me personally - I've just got all of the studio albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Aerosmith Compilation May 12, 2006
Format:Audio CD
O, Yeah! Ultimate Aerosmith Hits, released in July 2002, is an Aerosmith compilation.

Aerosmith is, with out a doubt, "America's Greatest Rock "N" Roll Band." There are many other great classic rock bands, but they were from different countries. Pink Floyd (England), Led Zeppelin (England), Queen (England), The Beatles (England), The Rolling Stones (England), and Rush (Canada). Do we see a pattern here? There are many legendary classic rock bands from England. So Aerosmith isn't the best ever, just in America they are.

Kicking this album off is 'Mama Kin' and 'Dream On', both from Aerosmith's debut album, "Aerosmith." I'm always happy to see 'Mama Kin' on a compilation, because it's an excellent song. 'Dream On' is also here, but that's no surprise, since it's one of Aerosmith's top five songs of all time.

From "Get Your Wings" come the songs 'Same Old Song And Dance' and 'Seasons Of Wither'. This is the full version of 'Same Old Song And Dance' and not the heavily edited copy found on "Aerosmith's Greatest Hits." (Note: I'm going to bash Aerosmith's Greatest Hits, because it has major editing problems.) 'Seasons Of Wither' is a nice song, but not the second best song on "Get Your Wings." 'Train Kept A Rollin' holds that title, but it's not here. Why? Who knows? It's an excellent cover but it's not found on "O, Yeah!".

'Walk This Way', 'Big Ten Inch Record', and 'Sweet Emotion' are the songs from Aerosmith's best album, "Toys In The Attic". This is the full, four-and-a-minute version of 'Sweet Emotion' and not the edited version found on Aerosmith's Greatest Hits. Two excellent songs missing from "Toys In The Attic" are 'No More No More' and 'Toys In The Attic'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitive Aerosmith June 15, 2004
Format:Audio CD
First let's address the album's atrocious title. On top of being a mouthful, "O Yeah! Ultimate Aerosmith Hits" is one of the lamest names for a Greatest Hits collection ever. But to be fair, Aerosmith have put out so many hits collections that they're running out of good titles to use. That said, this is definitely the Aerosmith hits collection you'll want to get. "Greatest Hits" and "Big Ones" were both snapshots of a certain point in Aerosmith's career, but "O Yeah!..." encapsulates their entire career (through 2002). All their bigs are here, conveniently in chronological order, except for the Run-DMC version of "Walk This Way" which is wisely put at the end of Disc 2 (the original is on Disc 1). Listening to the songs in order, it's easy to track Aerosmith's career from rock underdogs to the comeback kids to '90s ballad kings. And since everybody has a favorite Aerosmith track, or five, you can be guaranteed that the album will have something for everybody.
On top of 28 of their hits, the albums includes two new numbers: "Girls of Summer" and "Lay It Down". The former is something of a miss: it's basically just generic top 40 summer rock. The latter is a should-have-been-a-hit ballad in the vein of "Angel".
Inevitably Aerosmith will continue to release albums, and by extension, greatest hits albums. But for right now, this is the one with all their hits, and it's worth every penny you'll spend.
