Product Description

Product Description

Proof positive that the Toxic Twins should never be apart, Done with Mirrors was Aerosmith's first album since Joe Perry returned to the band in 1985. Though it didn't garner as much commercial success as did the follow-up Permanent Vacation, this album is in many ways truer to the heart of what Aerosmith was in their 1970s heyday. From the opening drive of "Let the Music Do the Talking" (which reuses that great riff from 1977's "Draw the Line"), to the strong grooves of "The Reason a Dog" and "Gypsy Boots," to the rockin' shuffle of "The Hop," Done with Mirrors is full of strong moments. The two best tracks on the album, though, show Aerosmith heading back to their roots: the swampy rock of "She's On Fire" and the jive-to-drive of "Darkness," both of which have the raw, bluesy base of the band's best material. If nothing else, Done with Mirrors indicated that Aerosmith may have been down, but they definitely weren't out of the running yet--something that Permanent Vacation would prove two years later. --Genevieve Williams

On February 14, 1984, Joe Perry and Brad Whitford visited Steven Tyler and the rest of their former Aerosmith bandmates. The meeting begat a reunion and the Back in The Saddle Tour. After the tour, Aerosmith signed with Geffen Records and hired Van Halen Producer Ted Templesman as the producer. The album is decent, but you have to keep in mind that the band wouldn't enetr rehab until a year later. It seems unpolished and raw as Templesman supposedly recorded Aerosmith's performances, only letting them no later that he got everything taped. It's certainly not Toys in the Attic, Rocks, or Pump, but it builds a bridge between their 70's heydays and the 80's and 90's heydays.

While Done With Mirrors is one of my least favorite Aerosmith albums, it's not a bad album. "Let The Music Do The Talking," "The Reason A Dog," and "My Fist Your Face" are great songs. But tracks like "Shela" and "She's On Fire" are a little on the weak side. Plus, the production on this album was horrible. It also lacks the energy of albums like Rocks or Pump.

Why this album wasn't a hit, I don't know. It didn't have any pop tunes on it. People may think I'm crazy when I say it, but this cd is great. Certainly worth the pick up for the price. Aerosmith went pop after this. This cd kicks ass!

first, this gets a strong 3.5 stars from me. i am by no means a big aerosmith fan. in fact, of all the songs on this album, i only knew "let the music do the talking" prior to picking it up. after the first spin, i really couldn't believe how good this album was! simply put, it is just a really great slab of raw and bluesy, no-frills rock 'n roll. the majority of the tunes are quite solid, my favourites being: "let the music do the talking", "my fist your face", "gypsy boots" and "she's on fire". to be honest, the album kind of hits a lull here and there, but there are no absolute stinkers on this by any stretch. overall, my cd collection is better for it's inclusion!! for anyone who is a fan of straight-ahead hard rock, pick it up, you will not regret it!

Original lead guitarist Joe Perry re-joined Aerosmith in 1985, and this album marked the beginning of their hugely succesful late-eighties comeback. It didn't get nearly as much attention as "Pump" or even "Permanent Vacation", partly because it lacks the obvious pop hit, I suppose, but it is actually a very solid hard rock record, perhaps Aerosmith's best since "Rocks".
The production is excellent, the riffs are big and dirty, the arrangements lean and mean, and "Mirrors" opens with one of Aerosmith's best songs of the 80s, the high-energy "Let The Music Do The Talking".
Other highlights include the funky, mid-tempo swagger of "Shame On You", the wonderfully titled groove of "The Reason A Dog", and the gritty, riff-driven two-guitar onslaught of "My Fist Your Face", a superb slice of melodic hard rock.
And yes, Steven Tyler's lyrics are immature and chauvenistic...although it's not nearly as bad as some of these reviewers will have you believe. But if you're going to take that kind of stuff seriously, you have no business listening to Aerosmith in the first place. Better stick with the Osmonds.
