5.0 out of 5 stars A. Smith's Most Under-Rated Album April 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
***** Rock In A Hard Place is a fantastic album. I have heard that Aerosmith considers it their personal least-favorite, but I am going to guess that it's because they probably have bad memories of the times they were going through while making it. They were without Joe Perry and Brad Whitford, but if nobody told you that, you wouldn't be able to tell. Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay do a fantastic job on the guitars. Crespo was also on Night In The Ruts album, though he did not get credit for it.
Do yourself a favor and pick up Rock In A Hard Place. It's probably the cheapest Aerosmith album, anyway. Every song really shines, from the skittaly-scat'n Bolivian Ragamuffin, to the psychedelic rockin' Joanie's Butterfly. Produced by a very stoned Jack Douglas, who also produced many (all?) of the earlier Aerosmith albums. They do a nice bluesy cover of Cry Me A River, too. And who could say no to Push Comes To Shove? That song is so cool! Nothing beats J-J-J-J-Jailbait for gutty guitar mania. Lightning Strikes was the radio single of the album, with it's tale of classic gang turf war. The rest is ALL great. I own this album since it came out in, what, 1982? Something like that, and I never get tired of it. It's the best!
If you're still on the fence about getting this album, JUST GET IT! IT'S FREAKIN' GOOD!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars HARD ROCK LIKE ITS MEANT TO BE PLAYED! May 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
Granted,this was one of Aerosmiths more disappointing releases sales wise;but as far as kick-ass blues based hard rock tunes go,IT ROCKS!
Sure,the TOXIC twins Perry/whitford are absent,but they are replaced nicely by toxic duo Crespo/Dufay!For me,I always preferred the hard edged,unpolished sound of Aerosmiths'toxic years to the overproduced teeny-bopper stuff they're settling for nowadays.
Really not a weak track on this offering.THE JIG IS UP is one of my faves.Check out the drumming by Joey Kramer in this one.What a groove!

2.0 out of 5 stars Pure crap! Nov. 16 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Man I cant believe there are people who actually like RIAHD! I remember when this album first came out, and I listened to it. Like WTF??? This was the worst junk they ever did, they had run out of material to say the least. There isnt one notable song on this album, and no hits, NOTHING!!! This could have been the end of the band right here had they released more stuff like this. They would be a classic rock group, doing little shows, and teaming up with bands like REO, Pat Benatar, Kansas etc and other groups who failed after their era. And believe me they would have fallen the same way had it not been for the awesome comeback of "Done With Mirrors" and "Permanent Vacation". DWM was the grittiest piece of work they ever accomplished, before eventually ending up making the Pure Pop "Pump" (which I did not like) because it always came accross like a teenager album to me. They were appealing to young people, and it worked! Brilliant from a commercial standpoint because it was their best selling CD and gained a whole new generation of fans. But other then RIAHD and Pump, I have liked almost everything Aersomith has ever done (with the exception of their last couple CDs). I am liking each new CD a little less. But thats my opinion, but you can see their commercial appeal is wearing then. So again Aerosmith comes up with "Oh Yea, The Greatest Hits Collection" and another sort of comeback!! But weather they will be able to dig deep and release another "Done With Mirrors" in 2005 will be a bigger question. Just how many lives can Aerosmith have?

3.0 out of 5 stars RIAHP was plagued by a lot of things Feb. 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
Joe Perry split in 1979, right as the band was finishing NIGHT IN THE RUTS. Brad Whitford left mid-way through the recording of this album. Sure, the real Aerosmith wasn't around, but this album isn't that bad. Jimmy Crespo isn't a brillant guitarist by any means. He simply was filling the shoes of Joe Perry, and for that, under those circumstances, he was praised for a job-well-done. Bassist Rick Dufay did an admirable job as well. He was known to be a real jerk, but he brought a raw 80s energy to the band that Tyler and company desperately needed (they never succeeded in the mainstream, obviously). But was it the sound, the fill-ins, or the 80s movement that really plagued this album? Perhaps. But around this time, Steven Tyler was in-and-out of rehab, relapsing, so-on and so-forth. He was mentally unstable; unable to restrain himself from drugs. The guy was snorting his life away left to right. The band was barely selling out clubs. They were even living in apartments for a while! Even worse, Steven Tyler passed out on stage numerous times which led to two tour cnacellations. Early 80s Aerosmith was a commercial disaster. Needless to say, everyone was convinced that Aerosmith were has-beens being led by an inept, drug-ridden vocalist who many thought would OD at any time.
That all being said, the band did release "Lighting Strikes" as their lone single. It never made it to the radio. They shot a video for the song (Tyler and company as a 50s street gang --- pretty bad). It failed. In the early 80s, you were successful based on how much coverage you got on MTV. For Aerosmith, that coverage never came. The album bombed (their worse selling album to date).
Ok, so enough of the negatives...
I am a diehard Aerosmith fan. No doubt about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aerosmith's Best Album, True Hard Rock !!!
This album will slam your speakers with some of the best rock out there. I really don't care if some the band members are missing, just like Black Sabbath without Ozzy. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Aersomith turns to mush
This may as well been a Steven Tyler solo album. Brad Whitford and Joe Perry were gone, and Tyler had to resort to a truly god-awful cover of "Cry Me A River. Read more
