For years, possibly decades, Aerosmith talked about cutting a blues album. They finally delivered with this 2004 endeavor. Purists and scholars might be offended that Steven Tyler and co. don't deliver the blues the way Muddy Waters or Howlin' Wolf recorded them, but you don't become world-famous doing things the way everybody else does. Aerosmith amps up and rocks out the blues as only they can for one heck of an experience.
Aerosmith are one of the few arena-sized bands still capable of playing it down-to-earth when the occasion calls. For Honkin' on Bobo, the boys return to their bar band roots (and fire a warning shot at Jack White) with this set of classic blues and soul covers generously peppered with harmonica, horns, and boogie-woogie piano. For years, Aerosmith sprinkled similar ditties on their LPs, but devoting a whole disc to material associated with John Lee Hooker, Mississippi Fred McDowell, et al? That takes chutzpah--and they've got it to spare here. "Shame, Shame, Shame" is a finger-waggin', hip-shakin' romp, while "Baby, Please Don't Go" starts out spooky, then escalates as Steven Tyler builds to a full-throttle holler with Joe Perry's guitar blazing his backside all the way. Tyler even snatches one signature song ("Never Loved A Girl") away from the Queen of Soul...at least for a few minutes. --Kurt B.

Aerosmith doing legendary blues songs. Amazing cd, one of the best. Love every song on it.Published 1 month ago by Teresa S.
This is probably my favorite album since Pump, slightly edging 1993's "Get a Grip." The songs are all blues covers, and the sounds is crisp and crunchy. Read morePublished on June 19 2007 by The Dark Knight 88

Honkin on Bobo is a good, rockin' record. It is full of cover songs. It seems like Aerosmith is having fun again with music. Read morePublished on July 15 2004
What a lazy, half-hearted, boredom-driven, self-serving pile of aerocrap. I LOVE Aerosmith and have seen them in concert no less than 9 times in different cities. Read morePublished on July 14 2004 by Jay B. Rusovich

You would have to be a die hard fan to appreciate the monotone screaming to appreciate this album. Billed as a blues album, but sounds more like Yoko Ono on helium.Published on July 14 2004
Drunk guy blues music, not even close to rock. This band worst album to date. They used to experiment with new styles, and be cutting edge, but this is washed up music that was... Read morePublished on July 14 2004 by sinisterfiend666
