2002 compilation featuring 30 tracks from their years with Columbia & Geffen. Hologram cover. 2002.
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 always loved the band's laid back and uplifting guitar rifts. Nice change from all the heavy metal stuff (which i equally enjoy) These guys really get the total harmonics and base guitar sounds balanced with every note... no to mention the solid drumming i hear!
I especially enjoy the fact that this was a remastered copy....oh yes there is a difference in sound! i might strike you a bit of an Audiophile.
I can't listen to allot of my music on iPods and MP3 players. If you are serious about music, any remastered disc will make your sound system really shine...such as this album!
All-in-all Aerosmith fans will appreciate this album.
