Nominated for a 1998 Grammy award for Best Rock Album and featuring the single, "Falling in Love (Is Hard on the Knees)," nominated for a Best Rock Performance, Nine Lives is Aerosmith's first album in their lucrative re-signing to Columbia Records. Together over 25 years, the Boston band has always been known for their gritty sex anthems, hard-buckling rhythms, and bic-flicking power ballads. Not nearly as flat-out rock as previous releases, Pump or Get A Grip, Nine Lives experiments with a multitude of instruments, including hammered dulcimer, Indian fiddle, and Chapman stick. This Noah's Ark approach allows the band to experiment within its rock parameters with the appropriately titled "A Taste of India." They haven't sworn off the ballads ("Fallen Angels" is what you'd expect) and they still riff like the Aerosmith of old ("Crash"). --Rob O'Connor

Unfortunatley, when compared to 'classic' Aerosmith like Toys in The Attic or more recent efforts like Get A Grip, Permanent Vacation, or Pump, Nine Lives falls short.
It is not a bad album, containing great songs like Nine Lives and Pink, but it is not a great album either.
If your Aerosmith dollar is limited, choose one of the other albums I already mentioned. If you have those already and are looking to sate your Aerosmith fix...Nine Lives is a good place to look for it.
There are several standout songs on this one, including the opening title track and the beautiful ballads "Falling in Love" and "Hole in my Soul". The exotic "Taste of India" and the strangely sexual "Pink" also received significant air-time, and the entire album fed off the success of the previous "Get a Grip" recording.
My only gripe with the album is some of the weaker tracks later in the lineup... although not bad they're just not up to the level the album starts off with, and took me a few more listens to become accustomed to. Needless to say, the 3 or so weaker tracks don't detract significantly from the album, and when Aerosmith is on they are absolutely fantastic.
All told, it's a very enjoyable record from a group I've come to expect a lot from over the years. Aerosmith has matured as much as they're capable of, and grown into their role as Rock'n'Roll icons. Their almost childlike enjoyment of all things carnal is definitely in evidence here, so whenever you're in need of a positive "Attitude Adjustment" just pop this disc in and let it roll.
Falling In Love and Hole In My Soul were the best Aerosmith singles since 1989's Janie's Got A Gun, period. Taste Of India is the most underrated song in this album (really one of the best cuts) and Full Circle was a single but with lesser response than the aforementioned first ones. On the other hand, we have the most "overrated" and annoying track: Pink, of course. I think this track is the only low point in the album despite been a mayor hit around the globe.
Back in 1997, I thought that this album was going to be the beginning of a new course for the band. The creativeness reached in Nine Lives is outrageous. However, 1998's I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing is the worst thing Aerosmith has ever "played", I mean this song was NOT written for the band NOR by the band. In a polite way, Diane Warren does a magnificent job composing songs for Cher or Celine Dion. Aerosmith isn't the case.
In 2001, they realized Just Push Play, an album that has only a few and occasional good moments. Maybe Jaded is the best song, and the ballad Fly Away From Here shows Steven's singing abilities and capabilities despite not being a song written by the band.Read more ›

NINE LIVES is not one of AEROSMITH's finer cds. The production on this cd is pretty bad, taking away alot of their crunch, makeing the music too condensed. Read morePublished on Dec 12 2003 by Eric J. Weik
