Product Description

Amazon.ca

Building on the success of the more pop-oriented Permanent Vacation, this 1989 release banished any doubts that Aerosmith's unlikely late-'80s comeback was a fluke of nature--or merely the product of shrewd record company calculations. That Aerosmith could produce a pair of albums to rival Toys in the Attic and Rocks after a decade-and-change of decay and despair seemed all but unnatural. While Vacation's other key players (producer Bruce Fairbairn, outside songwriters Jim Vallance and Desmond Child) are still part of the mix, it's the band's familiar, tough swagger that powers this collection from the get-go. And while the Vallance-Child collaborations ("The Other Side" and the power ballad "What It Takes," respectively) were successful, it's telling that the album's twin pop-rock evergreens, "Love in an Elevator" and "Janie's Got a Gun," originated entirely within the band; the old dogs had not only learned a few new tricks, they seemed bent on tutoring their would-be trainers in the bargain. Pump is the high point of Aerosmith's improbable second chapter--and one of their best albums, period. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars Aerosmith At Their Best May 21 2004
By Mike
Format:Audio CD
Although Permanent Vacation brought Aerosmith back to everyone's attention, it was not true Aerosmith because of outside writers the the reliance on sappy ballads like "Angel." It was simply not true Aerosmith. Pump, on the other hand, even though it still had some outside writers, was Aerosmith's BEST album. Rocks was great, but had a couple of dumb songs and a crappy power ballad. Great album where a person can listen to the entire thing without using the "skip" button. Imagine how even greater it would have been if "Deuces are Wild" had been on the instead of "My Girl" or "Don't Get Mad." Recommended for all great music fans, not just Aerosmith ones.

2.0 out of 5 stars Goin' Commercial May 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
Aerosmith was one of the most important bands of the 1970's hard rock/heavy metal scene. But in the early 80's, their albums sales began to slip. But the made a so-called comeback in the late eighties. But they completely abandoned the rough, raw sound for a commercial atrocity. They thought they could pull off being a glam band. Believe me, they don't have the looks for it. This ain't even rock anymore. This is just pure commercial pop/rock. This is pathetic. Janie's Got A Gun is okay, but if your'e expecting Toys In The Attic, your'e not gonna get it here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grade A- Dec 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is my favorite cd of theirs. Even all the way thru. No dead wood or filler on this one. The production at times seems a little heavy handed, but that's the feel thru out this cd, is that it rocks, even on the power ballads. The group has always sung about women and rock, but this time they have shown a more mature side to their lyrics, with songs like MEDICINE MAN (about not taking care of earth, etc),& JAMIE'S GOT A GUN (child abuse). A great cd, worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hardrocking Post Comeback Masterpiece Nov. 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
In 1987 Aerosmith made a huge comeback after being considered 70s has beens. Still riding high on Permnant Vacations success the band entered a studio in Vancouver. With the sessions done in 1989, Aerosmith unleashed another hardrocking masterpiece. This album recaptured their 70s swagger & took it to new levels. The band fires on all cylinders and this album contains no weak spots. This album is fun, fast, and is a goodtime like a rock album should be.
1. Young Lust. 10/10 Starts the album with a bang. Great drum solo ending.
2. F.I.N.E. 10/10 Great hard driving song. I love the sexual innuendo.
3. Love in an Elevator. 10/10. Amazing guitar solos drive this song. Brillant sleazy lyrics, dripping with innuendo. One of their best ever.
4. Monkey on my Back. 9/10 Another great hard driving rock song.
5. Janie's Got a Gun. 10/10 Covers the serious topic of child abuse and manages to flat out rock. Very gutsy, dark song, and a true masterpiece. I know people who hate Aerosmith but concede this is a great song.
6. The Other Side. 10/10 Starts with some Dulcimers then they unleash on another great hard rock song.
7. My Girl. 7/10 The album dips a bit at this point only because those first 6 songs were so blistering. This is still a good song just overshadowed by the preceding songs.
8. Don't Get Made Get Even. 8/10 Captures the attitude towards and ex.
9. Vodoo Medicine Man. 7/10 Good song, but another one that is overpowered by the earlier better songs.
10. What it Takes. 9/10 Very good album closer about surviving a break up & moving on. It is a power ballad but holds up unlike most 80s power ballads.
Many consider this Aerosmith's best album. It is their best after the 70s for sure. Must have for hardcore fans and a good place to start for those just getting into Aerosmith.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Aerosmith Classic Aug. 29 2003
Format:Audio CD
Aerosmith never disappoint. There is no other band I can think of in the world that has had such a remarkable comeback than what Aerosmith had in the 1980s. "Permanent Vacation" in 1987 was their first sober album in years and was a huge success, they followed that success with "Pump" - another classic.
"Love In An Elevator", "What It Takes", "The Other Side", "Young Lust", "F-I-N-E" - Aerosmith's classic melodic harmonies are all here in this amazing album.
Check out "My Girl" and "Monkey On My Back" - plus "Janie's Got A Gun" - Some people believe Aerosmith are the best band in the world - and with songs like these - I couldnt agree more!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock and Roll at it's Best July 12 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is a fantastic album. Better than Permanent Vacation and Draw the Line, it marks Aerosmith's return to the rock and roll throne. While long time fans may argue that it is not up to par with the 70's stuff, it's still a great collection of songs. The boys also became MTV icons with there hyper-sexual "Love in an Elevator" video and with the always haunting "Janie's got a gun". And "Young Lust" is just a kick ... song. Easily 5 stars.

PUMP was an even bigger success than Aerosmith's predecessor,PERMANENT VACATION. There are a lot of BIG ONES on this album. LOVE IN AN ELEVATOR became a Top 20 hit as did JANIE'S GOT A GUN,THE OTHER SIDE and WHAT IT TAKES. FINE is an acronym for the following adjectives:F---ED UP,INSECURE,NEUROTIC,EMOTIONAL. Steven Tyler spells the acronym in WHAT IT TAKES. This was one of the best-selling albums in 1990 although it was released in fall 1989. For some reason,the band decided to leave DEUCES ARE WILD off the PUMP album which they would release on the various artists album,THE BEAVIS AND BUTTHEAD EXPERIENCE in 1993. You can see videos for some of the PUMP tracks on the video,"Things That Go PUMP In the Night".
