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

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.
I really think this is one of the best rock N roll albums you can buy. To me rock N roll is rock music with a happy, good-time kind of feeling, and that's exactly what this album is all about.
The first 6 songs are absolutley perfect, I always get a good feeling when I listen to them. They sound so energetic and the band sounds like they are having a great time, Steven Tyler especially is so great with his singing and amusing lyrics, he is definitely one of the best rock N roll vocalists of all time.
The 3 songs after those aren't as great as the previous ones, but are still really good songs, and by most other band's standards even great.
Then to finish the album there is the emotional ballad "What It Takes", which I think is one of Aerosmith's best ballads.
If you like rock N roll I am positive you will really enjoy this album. There aren't many as good as Pump.
1. Young Lust- Typical Aero opener of album...Hard rocking tune that just rocks.
2. F.I.N.E- Tyler at his best with his tongue in cheek sexual lyrics. Great groove and one of the album's best.
3. Love In An Elevator- First single that hits both Top 40 and Hard Rock appeal. Excellent extended guitar solo by Perry and Whitford. Only Tyler would penn a song like this..
4. Monkey On My Back- About their drug use and a very underrated song on the album. Reminiscient of ACDC's Giving the Dog A Bone..
5. Janie's Got A Gun- Biggest hit off the album and Tyler touches on subject matter that is pretty foreign to the band. One of his masterpieces...
6. The Other Side- Another hit, horns give the song a special something..
7. My Girl- Reminded me of old Kinks...
8. Don't Get Mad, Get Even- Bluesy tune with 90's feel.
9. Voodoo Medicine Man- Another underrated song.
10. What It Takes- I think one of the best ballad's ever written. Not your typical power ballad, a little country feel to it and a great song.
Really Aerosmith at their best....
When Permanent Vacation was released, many were unsure about the path the band were taking. Pump managed to establish the route with all the songs being single hits on radio or mtv. A similar thing when Aerosmith's debut album was released. The band didn't have a definate style or route. 'Get Your Wings' managed to establish that.
The album begins with 'Young Lust'. A sleazy anthem opening the show. Next we have F.I.N.E.. An even sleazier song. Probably one of the dirtiest songs i've ever listened to. But that's Aerosmith for you, ain't it? Next you get the classic 'Love In An Elevator' featuring an awesome two minute solo by Joe Perry. The happy pace of the album continues with the radio hit, 'Monkey On My Back' which talks about Steve's life of drugs and hard living. Soon the pace dies with a serious social commentary about child abuse with 'Janie's Got A Gun'. The pace quickly picks up with 'The Otherside'. 'My Girl' and 'Don't Get Mad, Get Even' both stand out as great rock pieces with some awesome lyrics. Next we get a darker song called 'Voodoo Medicine Man' with an eerie bass riff by Tom Hamilton and exotic background noises. Finally, like many of Aerosmith's great albums, 'Pump' ends with a sweet ballad. 10/10 for all songs.
Though only ten tracks on this album, all of them are unique and excellent. The CD lasts a little over 45 minutes which in my opinion, is a pretty good length. Most albums that usually last over 60 minutes usually start to get tiresome.
By the way...nice album cover, huh? Suits the name of the album ;-).

This is a really bad vinyl reissue. The sound is very bright with hardly any depth. The dynamics are small and sound too far away. Read morePublished on Dec 17 2011 by The Seeker
