5.0 out of 5 stars Right In The Nuts Nov. 20 2008
Format:Audio CD
I don't know why people rail on about this release.I think it's one of Aerosmiths strongest albums.Even with all the drugs, drama and trauma of Steven and Joe and yeah so what, Jimmy Crispo plays some great uncredited guitar on a few of the tunes, there are a lot of great songs here.Also to my ears,this album had a nice bright, crisp mixed sound.Up until then I thought this was one of their top sounding produced records.Outstanding tunes are No Surprise,Three Mile Smile,Reefer Head Woman,Cheesecake,Chiquita and Bone to Bone and the rest aren't bad either.

4.0 out of 5 stars Right Up There with the Best of 'Em! May 30 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'm glad to see that the majority of the reviewers of this CD have given it the accolades it deserves. I actually think it's a step above the previous album, "Draw the Line". The songs are consistently stronger with only "Remember" (an interesting curiosity, but not worthy of the rest of the session) and "Think About It" not being quite up to snuff. "No Surprize" and "Three Mile Smile" are well-developed rockers with the band seemingly clicking on all cylinders. "Chiquita" and "Cheese Cake" are only one step behind.
My biggest disappointment with this CD is that the band left "Chip Away the Stone" off the final version. The song was recorded at the same time as the rest of "Right in the Nuts". "CAATS" is one of my all time favorite Aerosmith tunes. For my regularly listening, I've burned a copy of "Right in the Nuts" with "Chip Away the Stone" sequenced between "Reefer Headed Woman" and "Bone to Bone". It really rounds out the disc, and improves the overall experience.
My first concert ever was "Monsters of Rock" in Oakland, CA, on July 21st, 1979. Aerosmith was on the bill with Mahogany Rush, AC/DC (on the "Highway to Hell" tour with Bon Scott) and Ted Nugent. Not a bad way to start one's concert-going career, eh? Aerosmith had not yet released "Right in the Nuts", but played "Think About It", "Bone to Bone" and "Chip Away the Stone". The band was ragged and strung-out and barely standing upright. In the context of this burn-out, it's a wonder that "Right in the Nuts" came out as well as it did. In retrospect, it is the final product of Aerosmith's "classic" period, and well worth your hard-earned cash.

4.0 out of 5 stars It gets better with every listen April 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
At first I didn't really think too much for this album but now I actually really like this album, I don't think it's their best album but it's really good considering the bad state Aerosmith was in during that time, with extreme drug use, the bandmates not getting along with each other and the wives were fighting, plus a little interesting tidbit here is that Steven Tyler's wife and Joe Perry's wife went from best friends to worst enemies cause Steven Tyler's wife left her husband for him and Joe Perry's wife does not like Steven Tyler and the situation got so bad that Joe Perry decided to form his own band cause he had enough of it.
I'm going to rate this album track by track.
No Surprize: This song is the autobiography of Aerosmith and this one of the best lyrics I've ever heard and Steven Tyler can write a good tune weather he's sober or not, this is one of the album's classic songs. 10/10
Chiquita: This is one of Aerosmith's heaviest songs and it's a really good one, this is one of Aerosmith's underrated songs from the 70's and it deserves more attention, there is a rare video for this song. 10/10
Remember (Walking in the Sand) A Shangrila's remake and people come down hard on this one, I find this one enjoyable but not great and I wouldn't consider it the worst song off of the album. 7/10
Cheese Cake: At first I didn't like this song but now I actually like it, it sounds like that it came off of the Get Your Wings/Toys in the Attic era and surprisingly, this song was done in one take with no overdubs according to Joe Perry, this is a really good song that makes you laugh a little.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mining Disaster Feb. 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
Aerosmith made a better pun for the title of this album than the music that eventually wound up on it. Internal conflict was crippling the toxic twins, and Joe Perry walked out to form the regrettable Joe Perry Project durning "Night In The Ruts'" sessions. Jimmy Crespo gets the MVP for not making the guitars sound like a hired gun's, but even he couldn't salvage such lamentable songs as "Reefer Head Woman."
That said, I like this album a wee bit better than "Draw The Line," if only for its underdog status. "No Surprize" and "Three Mile Smile" sound like they were really trying to get their collective mojos working, and as much as "Remember Walking in the Sand" gets bashed, it really does fit into the great covers library that Aerosmith has amassed. In addition, "Chiquita" throws a few strong musical curves in for those who look at their favorite bands to challenge themselves a little.
Unfortunately, the chemicals had wreaked havoc on the bandmembers' chemistry, and "Night In The Ruts" just lacks that steam compression power that "Toys," "Wings" and "Rocks" all were charged with. All three of those CDs are better starting points than this. In fact, so are "Pump" and "Vacation." "Ruts" was the sound of Aerosmith marking time in the coal mines.

By 1979 Aerosmith were victims of their own success. The young, hungry, poor band that made great music was now a drugged out, rich band that didn't care. Read more
