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.
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.Read more ›
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.
1. No Surprise. 10/10 One of the best songs they've ever done. Tells the bands story up until that point.
2. Chiquita. 9/10 Great guitar intro that sounds very unAerosmith. One of the highlights of the album.
3. Remember (walking in the sand). 1/10 Horrible! This is a cover song that they don't pull off. I don't know how this song became the only hit off the album, their audience at the time were on to many drugs too.
4. Cheese Cake. 10/10 Classic hard rock song. I love the chorus, it sounds like he says She's Gay. Very funny.
5. Three Mile Smile. 10/10 Great drumming and guitars on this one. Jimmy Crespo does the solo and shows he is a good guitarist.
6. Reefer Head Woman. 1/10 Another disastrous cover song. Very bluesy but it just doesn't work.
7. Bone to Bone (coney island white fish boy). 8/10 Very underrated song. One of the strong songs of the album.
8. Think About It. 8/10 Cover of an old Yardbirds song. Well done.
9. Mia. 0/10 Dreadful song. Worst ballad they have ever done. Written about his daughter it just doesn't work.Read more ›
