Jaded is a great song. The title track is also an outstanding rocker that really gets you ready to enjoy this album. Unfortunately the good ends there.
Ok, I understand that the RUN DMC Aerosmith collaboration on Walk the Way in 1986 set the stage for the rap-rock of today, but that is no excuse for Outta My Head. A horrid rap-rock hybrid that is one of the few Aerosmith songs that I actually skip when listening to any of their albums.
If you are an Aerosmith completist, you'll want this. If you like pop music only, you might enjoy this one. If you are looking for a great Aerosmith album, you will not find it with Just Push Play.
I didn't have "Just Push Play", though. And guess what? I had it for about a week, listen to it, tried to give a chance. And then I threw it away. My CD shelves are overstuffed enough as it is, I don't have room for CDs that I'm never going to listen to again anyway.
There so many completely forgettable (or downright awful) songs here, and the production, which can't decide if it wants to bury the songs in grunge-like noise or present them as sleek 21st century pop-rock numbers, is terrible.
I like dirty electric guitars as much as anyone, but I prefer it when they're actually playing something resembling a riff, or at least a rhythm of some kind...not just roaring aimlessly away.
This album gives me a headache. And no, I'm not 65, I was barely born when Aerosmith was formed.
The tuneful, hook-laden (and relatively cleanly produced) "Jaded" is really good, "Fly Away From Here" was a hit, so some people must have liked that one as well, and "Luv Lies" and the semi-acoustic "Face" are at least listenable.
The rest? Yuck. Boring pseudo-rap ("Outta My Head"), weird "Strawberry Fields"-like vocals ("Drop Dead Gorgeous"), and dull, predictable, noisy, riff-less, hook-less garage rock (most everything else). And the lousiest production ever to marr an Aerosmith album. Is this album meant to be played in techno clubs or what?
These guys must have stolen the name "Aerosmith", pretending to be the same band that recorded "Toys In The Attic", "Rocks", and "Draw The Line".Read more ›
