Product Description

Product Description

Here at last is the Iconic outfit's single-disc greatest hits compilation. This definitive collection adds all the anthemic early Aerosmith chart-toppers cut for Columbia Records like "Dream On" and "Walk This Way," to the band's gem-hard Geffen Records sides, such as "Love In An Elevator" and "Janie's Got A Gun." Add to this mouth-watering synthesis a pair of new-recorded Aerosmith tunes, and you've got the answer to every Aerosmith fan's feverish dream.

2.0 out of 5 stars Contractual Obligation Sept. 14 2011
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Aren't contracts a pain? Aerosmith think so too. Eager to complete their contract with Sony, but sidelined by Tom Hamilton's throat cancer, the band chose to release yet another greatest hits album. This being their third since the release of their last original studio album, Just Push Play.

I won't comment much on the hits portion of this disc. I am so, so sick of the Geffen years from sheer overplay, although "Angel" is conspicuous by its absence. You do get a handful of tracks (6) that are pre-Geffen, but all stuff that is available on the numerous hits albums before. Even "Walk This Way" was available on a previous hits album.

The bait to buy this is two new songs: "Sedona Sunrise", and "Devil's Got a New Disguise". "Devil" is actually a song that was written 15 years previous for Pump and reworked several times, so you can't even accuse Aerosmith of writing a new song. And, since it failed to make Pump, Get A Grip, Nine Lives, Just Push Play, or any of the hits albums featuring two news songs previous to this one (Big Ones and O Yeah), then you know it can't be very good. And it's not. "Sedona Sunrise", a soft one, is better.

2 stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why? Nov. 4 2006
By GT
Format:Audio CD
Aerosmith has been releasing "greatest hits" records since the '70s. Whether it is them or their record label so bent on being the record holder for most greatest hits albums ever produced I am not sure, but what I am sure of is the fact that these records are nothing but a money grab. I am hardcore fan of Aerosmith, but that doesn't influence me enough to spend money on music I've already paid for. Arguably Big Ones (1994) was the best greatest hits package Aerosmith has come out with, and that record is over 10 years old. I do not support any more greatest hits records coming from artists like Aerosmith because there really isn't much point in these records being released (again, and again, and again, and again...).

1.0 out of 5 stars Contractual Obligation's Got an Old Disguise Nov. 28 2006
By doomsdayer520 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Let's do a little math. Over the course of their career, Aerosmith have released fourteen "proper" albums. There are also five official live albums (1. Live Bootleg, 2. Classics Live I, 3. Classics Live II, 4. A Little South of Sanity, 5. Rockin' the Joint.) Meanwhile, not including various repackaging schemes, re-releases, and international items, there are currently nine Aerosmith compilation albums on the market. (1. Greatest Hits, 2. Gems, 3. Pandora's Box, 4. Big Ones, 5. Box of Fire, 6. Young Lust, 7. O Yeah, 8. Gold, 9. Devil's Got a New Disguise.) Add those compilations to the live albums and you get fourteen "retrospective" releases. So Aerosmith and their record companies have managed to squeeze fourteen retrospectives out of fourteen original albums. A pretty impressive feat, if you think about it. But it's obvious what the true fan should really spend his or her money on, if you disdain market saturation and contractual fulfillments.

The recent compilations favor the overblown blues/soul orchestrations of the latter phase of the band's career (late 80s to present), while giving short shrift to the well-toned heavy rock of the classic years (up to the late 70s) and completely ignoring the lost years (late 70s to mid 80s). If you're partial to the hard rockin' classic years, then for a useful overview you still can't do any better than the short and snappy Greatest Hits from 1980. Or just buy all the proper albums from that period, which would be infinitely more rewarding than these useless modern compilations. As for this new Devil's Got a New Disguise release, the song selection is nearly identical to the O Yeah collection from just four years ago, with the obligatory so-called bonus tracks to supposedly make the purchase worthwhile. Here, "Sedona Sunrise" is actually rather unique for the band's recent history, but there's a reason the two bonus tracks were previously unreleased. One could certainly blame the record companies for regurgitating all these quickie compilations, but some fault also lies with the band, who have diluted their legacy by allowing these repetitive retrospectives to be released, as easy ways to fulfill contracts. If you're really into Aerosmith, just commit some money to all of those fourteen original albums. After all, there's as many of those as there are retrospectives, and the originals are where the action really is. [~doomsdayer520~]

3.0 out of 5 stars Avoid this like the plague!!! Oct. 24 2006
By Erick Bertin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
No, I don't have any problems with Aerosmith, and no, I don't have any problems with compilations either, when they are done right and at the right time. Unfortunately, this one is yet another sign of how out of synch the big record companies have become: instead of offering an interesting product, featuring some of the myriad of "lost songs" in the band's catalog (and there were MANY leftovers from their recording sessions for "Get a Grip" and "Nine Lives", to mention but 2 examples...), Columbia/Sony decides to throw ANOTHER dull, pointless greatest hits compilation of material that we, Aerosmith fans, ALREADY HAVE!!!

The catch? Two unreleased songs dating as far back as "Pump" and "Get a Grip". In the age of digital downloading, trying to trick fans into buying a lousy compilation with such a nasty trick is low, very low, even for record industry standards. Don't waste your money on this: if you're a fan, you already have the tunes, and if you're looking for an introduction, go get "O, Yeah Ultimate Hits", which is far better than this.

By all means, support the artist: (LEGALLY!!!!) download the "new" tunes, but skip this CD. And what's the deal with the cover??? C'mon, been there, done that!!! It's a sad remake of Def Leppard's "Retroactive" cover, only 13 years late!! Talk about being a day late, a dollar short...anyway... There is nothing wrong with the band, or the music included here for that matter, but simply put: you don't need this. No one does...

1.0 out of 5 stars The reason this exists. Oct. 18 2006
By John - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Aerosmith is contractually obligated to Sony Music to deliver another record this year. They had begun recording one, but Steven Tyler had to have throat surgery - taking him away from singing for months - and another bandmember was diagnosed with cancer and has begun treatment, preventing him from playing with the band also.

In order to fulfill their contract they put out a Greatest Hits, and because it contains two new songs (one an old demo from the Pump days, actually) it is technically a "new album."

So there you go.

This is for the kids, because there's nothing here for the fans. We've had this stuff for years. As far as the new songs go...we may be older, but we sure as heck know how to download! We've got money-just don't want to waste it. How about a decent concert DVD!

1.0 out of 5 stars Songs Chopped Feb. 20 2010
By M. M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
DO NOT BUY THIS UNLESS YOU ARE AWARE OF THE CHOPPED SONGS ON IT. I was so excited to pop this C.D. in and as I started to listen and sing along I was quite upset to find out that most of the songs on the C.D. have large portions cut out. I felt like throwing the C.D. out the window, and I may as well have, because I cant return it, and I am still going to have to buy another C.D. that has the full versions of the songs on it.
