Product Description

Product Description


While not quite as exemplary of the Boston quintet's '70s sound as Toys in the Attic or Rocks, Get Your Wings was impressive both in terms of its material and its measurable improvement over Aerosmith's debut. From the R&B inflected "Same Old Song and Dance" to the power-rock "Woman of the World" to the rollicking cover of "Train Kept a Rollin'," Wings showed the band solidifying their sound and really taking flight for the first time. --Genevieve Williams

5.0 out of 5 stars Defining the style... Aug. 9 2010
Format:Audio CD
Mark: 9.5/10, 5 stars

"Get your wings", 100 percent Aerosmith. The album presents a more defined style, showing clear tendencies towards hard rock, but with noticeable shades of blues. Just as with the "Aerosmith" album, we continue to hear melodies and lyrics that could make even a rock dance, or get a smile from the bitterest person. "Get your wings", in particular, travels across varied tempos in an intermingled way: it begins with "Same old song and dance", which has an agile (not fast) and harmonious rhythm, and then we move to "Lord of the thighs" and "Spaced", which show themselves serious and at a leisurely pace. Next, the freshness of "Woman of the world" appears, followed by the heaviest track on the disc in terms of the mixture of music and lyrics: "S.O.S. (too bad)". After this, "Train kept a rollin'", originally written by Tiny Bradshaw, Howard Kay y Lois Mann, takes us again to an agile and catchy rhythm. Without losing the thread, like the seashore at sunrise, "Seasons of wither" brings calm. Finally, going back to a heavier sound, "Pandora's box" closes the album.

In relation to the lyrics, it's not necessary to repeat that Steven Tyler and company keep the double entendre and cleverness when writing: a trademark of Aerosmith. However, this time the subjects are a lot darker in comparison to the first album lyrics. You can also notice a change in the vocal timbre of Tyler: in "Get your wings", his sound adopts increased agility and ease, qualities that would be developing across Aerosmith's following works. Lastly, it's important to mention that you can sense a deep musical rapport between the members of the band.

By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"Get Your Wings" is actually a good record. That is, if you were a fan of circa-1973 Alice Cooper's sound. Like the NY Dolls, in 1974 Aerosmith tried and failed to get Cooper-protege Bob Ezrin to produce their upcoming album. To get a sense of how much of an influence ACG was, you need to look no further than the lead tracks from both albums ("Mama Kin" & "Personality Crisis"). Both were blatant rewrites of Cooper's "Cross-Town Traffic" inspired SMOKER - "Under My Wheels".
When Ezrin wasn't impressed with either band, he sent his protege Jack Douglas to work on the Aerosmith project. After experiencing problems with the quality of Aerosmith's guitar playing in the studio, Douglas was forced to "ghost" Aerosmith with the same studio band that he (and Ezrin before him) had used on ACG's 1973 Top 10 album "Muscle of Love".
Interestingly, Douglas trashes ACG's playing - while failing to mention that the same musicians were used on "Get Your Wings".
Joe Perry was considered a guitar "god" in the 70's, primarily due to his simulated "live" version of "Train Kept A Rollin". Unfortunately - he wasn't on the track!! Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter of Alice Cooper's studio-band, provided nearly all of the guitar work on GYW(as they later did for Kiss, Pink Floyd's "The Wall", Patti Smith Group, etc.,). Compare the sound of "Same Old Song and Dance" to the earlier Cooper work "Never Been Sold Before". Compare "Hard Hearted Alice" to "Seasons of Wither". The list goes on.
It wasn't until Perry played on Cooper's song "Trash" that the debt was repaid. Somewhat. A Florida music critic (forget the name - but can be googled) recently wrote a great piece that traced Cooper's early influence on Aerosmith.
The idea that Aerosmith, NY Dolls and the Sex Pistols can be in the Rock & Roll HOF before their PRIMARY INFLUENCE (ACG) is more insane than any Alice character. Apart from Roky Erikson - nobody is more deserving.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars - A huge step up from their debut May 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
Get Your Wings (1974.) Aerosmith's second album.
In 1973, Aerosmith entered the musical scene with their self-titled debut album. Though not a spectacular album by any means, it certainly showed the world that the band had some serious potential. The following year, the band recorded their second full-length LP, Get Your Wings. Was it an improvement over their previous release, or another subpar effort? Read on for my review.
To put it simply, this album is a MASSIVE improvement over it's predecessor. It's not exactly a five-star masterpiece, but it's a great album. Steven Tyler has finally managed to find his voice, and it shows on every track on this album. Joe Perry's guitar playing here is also excellent. The band kicks off the album with its lone hit, Same Old Song And Dance. This song went onto become a huge hit for the band, and why not? This is bluesy hard rock at its very best. Although it was the only really popular song to emerge from this release, it's not the only good one. Lord Of The Thighs is another bluesy hard rocker that almost certainly won't fail to please if you're a fan of the band. And, like many rock and roll artists, Aerosmith recorded a cover of the blues classic, Train Kept A Rollin'. Their version of the song is nothing short of excellent. The two closing tracks, Seasons Of Wither and Pandora's Box, are two of the band's most underrated songs ever recorded. It's a shame they don't normally end up on the band's best of compilations - they belong there. Ultimately, it's one hell of an album.
To put it simply, if you like blues-based hard rock, you're going to love this album. Though not Aerosmith's finest hour by any means, it's a damn fine album nonetheless, and it's well worth adding to your collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Aerosmith
The first album by Aerosmith (it was vinyl) I ever owned. I just had to get it in CD. Not one bad song even if a session guy plays the solo in Train Kept A Rollin'

After their first album, which had a rough, raucous, good-time-party, frat house feel to it, no one had reason to expect such a polished, slick, and accomplished sophomore LP. Read more

The band didn't hit it's stride until "Toys in the Attic", and even then was nothing more than a competent take on much better British hard rock. Read more
