A very uneven cd, luckly there are more good songs than bad. When it works, it rocks as good as any Aerosmith cd, and when it flops, it sucks big time. FLESH, WALK ON DOWN, SHUT UP AND DANCE, GOTTA HAVE IT, & LINE UP, are bad, beyound bad. They cross over the line, trying too many things at once. The production is too brassy. And when Steven ain't singing, it ain't Aerosmith. Rest of the songs, are top notch, at times catching the magic, of years gone by, before and after the drug days. Steven is a good rapper, with very unsmooth voice, that times sounds like he will not be able to whisper another word, much less sing or yell it, but it works. INTRO, the uhh, intro for EAT THE RICH, is on the best preludes to a song in ages, just too short. But is a good veiw of what is to come on this cd, a wild ride, with some surprises. GET A GRIP is another good song, with a good beat taylor made for the voice of Aero. CYING, CRAZY, & AMAZING , you have heard them on the radio, seems like they played forever, and they belong still on the airwaves. LIVIN' ON THE EDGE, another good song about mother earth, and how made we treat her. All the good songs can be found on the hits collection BIG ONES, so I would suggest skipping this cd and buying that one. Prodution on this cd is not as heavy as PUMP, but not as light weight as PERMENANT VACATION. Sounds As though they were trying to get the "grunge" feel of the day, which may have been what hurt a lot of the songs on this cd. If you got to have all the Aerosmith cds for a collection, get it, BIG ONES, is still a better deal.
