2.0 out of 5 stars Music from Another Planet, Just Not Ours, November 6, 2012
This review is from: Music From Another Dimension! (Audio CD)
I've been listening to Aerosmith since their very first album and while like I don't to compare any group's albums to past efforts, this time it's hard not to especially since the band has made such a fuss about returning to their roots. Choke, choke. I hope they're not serious. While this could have been a great album, Aerosmith decided to ride the coat tails of their former past , more current, albums and try to recapture those moments. For me, I'm just not seeing too much good in this. Where is the rock and where is the rawness? Don't see it. All I see is mediocre rock at best with a lot of sappy ballads thrown in for good measure. While Tyler has never spurned ballads, these don't even compare to tunes such as 'You See Me Cryin' or 'Home Tonight' from 'Toys in the Attic' and 'Rocks'. Best track for me on this album seems to be 'Freedom Fighter' from Perry. While fans from the Permanent Vacation' onward days will probably enjoy this album, fans from their early and heyday years will just continue to scratch our heads and wonder whatever happened to the band and why did they sell out. "Pink is my favorite color" Gag!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You must be a big stoner from the 70s and you don't appreciate the 80's nor are you a true fan..this albums rocks and has great ballads! Very 80s. Love the 80s it was the best time in rock. Talent. 2 stars? Really?

80's best time in rock...give me a break!
The band died after Done With Mirrors although i admit this is a partial return to a bit of form despite sounding contrived.

80's? Pump notwithstanding, the 80's weren't a-smith's best decade. Spend a day listening to "wings" and you'll know what I mean. Even DTL was more a-smith than this current release...

To TravisJames "HaHaHa". Funny comment. I love commentators who have to insult also. Hey, you obviously like this record which was written for Aerosmith's teeny bopper crowd. That's fine and that's your opinion, but no need to insult the reviewer. I don't think it's anywhere close to what they hyped up to be a return to their 70's roots. With that hype I can then compare this to their 70's albums which doesn't even come close to this release. Take a listen to their first four albums and if you think this is on par with those then I guess I must be missing something. Even their fifth album, 'Draw the Line' which is considered their most uninspired and weakest album of that time period is better than this. As far as not appreciating eighties music, please. You can't even begin to know what I appreciate or don't appreciate. If this was a truly five star album then everyone, including myself, would be giving it five stars. Even the new Rick Springfield album has all five stars, except for three four stars. He must be doing something right and he's been around a long time too. Keep you comments to the music and not insults of a person you don't even know. I think I'll go listen now to the new Kamelot album because I'm in the mood for some great music, not kiddie rock.
