Product Description

Aerosmith ~ Big Ones

Amazon.ca

Few comebacks in rock and roll history have been as amazing as that of Aerosmith. Their triumphant return to the charts in the '80s not only rekindled the band's earlier success, but also significantly surpassed it. With their top 20 hits "Dude (Looks Like a Lady)," "Ragdoll," and the top 10 power ballad, "Angel," the group proved they had even more fire left in their fight than anyone could have imagined. Leaving behind its reckless lifestyle, the band sacrificed none of their rowdy rock and roll. "Ragdoll" and "Love in an Elevator" built upon Aerosmith's raunchy blues approach to hard rock, complete with singer Steven Tyler's howl in the best form of his career. Big Ones includes these rockers along with the spooky Grammy-winner "Jamie's Got a Gun," and the slower but still hard-edged "Crazy." Other high points of the new and improved band are reflected in "The Other Side" and the anthem "Eat the Rich." --Steve Gdula

How can you not love a band that comes up with the perfect title for their second greatest hits package? It could also be called "Back from the morgue" because this collection reflects the second coming of Aerosmith quite well. There's not a dead spot on the cd. Every song rolls into the next with ease. The guitar performances, Tyler's vocals and superb drumming make this band one of the very best ever and hearing these tunes back to back confirms it. Highly recommended.

I'm gonna stay out of the "old vs new Aerosmith" debates that many seem to have. Although I prefer the new version covered here (since it was their first stuff I heard), I like their older material too.
That out of the way, this was (in 1994, at least) the best way to get all their "new" era hits in one place. Even though the guys now probably have more hits collections than some bands have albums, this is the best place IMHO for a new fan of their 1987-1994 to start.
Starting with 87's PERMANENT VACATION, we have the hilarious, pop/metal classic tale of "Dude Looks Like A Lady"; the sweet but still rocking 80's power ballad "Angel"; and the somewhat old style bluesy hard rocker "Rag Doll."
1989's PUMP gets four songs. The funny office fantasy arena metal "Love in an Elevator"; the serious and edgy yet melodic "Janie's Got a Gun"; and the more stripped down power ballad "What it Takes"; and the somewhat Rolling Stones sounding rocker "The Other Side."
1993's GET A GRIP gets the biggest representation with five (!) songs. The cannibalism in-jokes of the underrated minor hard rock hit "Eat the Rich"; the mid tempo and more serious classic rocker "Living on the Edge"; and the three soundalike longer rock ballads "Cryin," "Amazing," and the emotional huge hit "Crazy" (with the Alicia Silverstone video).
There's also three songs that were recorded new for this collection. The hard rock swagger of the slightly 70's yet modern "Walk on Water," the more serious, also older sounding "Blind Man" and the poppy semi ballad "Deuces Are Wild."
There's several smaller hits and popular album tracks missing.

by the time the mid-1980's rolled around, many felt that Aerosmith were a once-great relic of the mid 1970's. They released four great albums between 1973-1976, but started with Draw The Line, it started turning on them. By the mid-1980's, Aerosmith had been long past their peak and they hadn't had a hit single in years. This all changed when they met Run DMC.
Being smart and knowing when to strike when the iron is hot, Aerosmith came back with Permanent Vacation in 1987 on Geffen (their first Geffen album, Done With Mirrors, was extremely underrated, check it out). Dude (Looks Like A Lady) was the first single and went to #14, becoming their biggest hit in a decade. However, this comeback single was not a fluke, it became the first of 11 straight singles (every single one collected on here) to make the top 30 (Eat The Rich and Deuces Are Wild were both smash hits on rock radio, and Blind Man and Walk On Water were the new tracks, Blind Man peaked in the 40's and Walk On Water barely got noticed when released in early 1995). Aerosmith were not only hot during 1987-1994, but they were actually hotter than they were in the 1970's!
Only 2 tracks (Rag Doll and Walk On Water) of the 15 recreate the gritty bluesy classic rock sound that Aerosmith perfected in the 1970's, so many fans of classic 70's Aerosmith aren't so fond of this "poppier" sound. However, for many of us who grew up in the 80's and early 90's, this is the Aerosmith we knew first.
I hope one day that there will be a comprehensive 1973-1982 collection (instead of a ten track) of the Columbia years, but when it comes to the Geffen years of Aerosmith, this is as good as it gets. The 2-disc "Young Lust" collection includes way too much from just 4 albums that it'd be cheaper to just go and buy the 4 albums seperately. BIG ONES is a Greatest Hits collection that delivers, every track on the album was a hit in some form or another, and there's nothing from 87-93 that's missing.

Big Ones is just the best of Aerosmith during there Geffen Years, but with three new songs. "Walk On Water" "Blind Man" and "Dueces Wild" were three new songs recorded for this collection, and all three of them are good, 'Dueces Wild' went on to be a big hit, the other two didnt do as well. Big Ones has all the big hits from Permanent Vacation, Pump, and Get A Grip which were Aerosmiths three biggest selling albums of all time, and for good reason they are the most commecial Aerosmith ever got, but even Aerosmith tring to be commercial is good. I like this because it is the only Aerosmith collection to not suck, it doesnt really leave anything off, but I wish they would have put 'Monkey On My Back' on here but then again it really wasnt a big hit, but it still kicks ass. This has it all 'Angel' 'Love In An Elevator' and 'Eat The Rich' you cant got wrong with this, so pick it up. Though you really should get the albums to because as we all know greatest hits are evil!

All I can say is - WOW! My favorite band of all time never disappoint. This delightful little collection contains all their classics - songs you can listen to again and again.
Aerosmith aren't just the greatest band in America - they are the greatest band in the WORLD - still going strong today despite that some of today's acts in music aim for the youth culture. Aerosmith have the potential to rock our worlds for as long as they can handle. I would recommend this VHS to anyone who even just remotely likes them. You can see the videos of "Eat The Rich", "Livin' On The Edge", "Ragdoll", "Dude (Looks Like A Lady", "Angel" "The Other Side" "Janie's Got A Gun" and the MTV classics "Cryin'", "Amazing" and "Crazy" which feature the absolutely stunning Alicia Silverstone who oozes with sex appeal in all three of these videos.
Between each video you get the chance to witness behind the scenes, interviewing the Bad boys from Boston about going on tour, the making of the videos etc. A delightful package which charts the success of this legendary band.
Keep a look out for Edward Furlong (of Terminator 2 fame) who stars in the video to the timeless classic "Livin' On The Edge".
Anyone who likes rock's greatest band should purchase this. A true gem. I can only hope their record company decide to release a live DVD soon of one of Aerosmith's gigs because that is the only thing I can imagine that would be better than this fantastic video!! GO ON AEROSMITH - KEEP ROCKING MY WORLD!!
