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!

***** 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!!!

Ignore all of the positive reviews for this album they are not the truth. If you are a fan of Aerosmith like I am, odds are you will not like this album. Only one song is good and that is Lightning Strikes. Jailbait is ok and is the only song from this album that they tend to put on best of compilations. The rest is a boring snooze fest that you don't want to hear. Even though Joe Perry & Brad Whitford aren't on this album, I don't think that is the problem. The state of the band at the time just didn't allow them to write good rock music. Luckily Aerosmith reunited and made a commercial comeback. If you are new to Aerosmith get Pump, Rocks, & Toys in the Attic. Those are the 3 essential Aerosmith albums. This album is for hardcore fans who want to be completeists. Don't expect to listen to it often and good luck enjoying it.

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."
The only good song here is "Lightning." Get any other Cd than this...with the exception of "Done With Mirrors," this is Aerosmith at its worst.

Out of all the Aerosmith releases, Rock In A Hard Place is probably the most underrated and despised album by Aerosmith fans. Without Joe Perry or Brad Whitford (who only plays on Lightning Strikes), this album is always relegated to the $9.98 CD bin and the first Aerosmith not to sell platinum (Done With Mirrors was the other album). Despite the problems the band was having at the time, the album is an excellent one. It's more bluesy and has a little different sound, mainly due to the influences of new lead guitarist Jimmy Crespo. It's not Rocks, Toys, or Pump. However, it's better than Done With Mirrors, Draw The Line, and Night in theR uts. Avoid the stigma of no Joe Perry, it's worth a listen.

Don't believe all the people who chose to bash this album. It seems everyone's reason for not liking the album is because Joe Perry and Brad Whitford aren't on the album. Personally, I think this album kicks ass from start to finish. The whole first side of the album is just awesome. Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay did an awesome job with the recording of this album. Rock In A Hard Place came at a dark time in Aerosmith's career. Steven Tyler was in a drugged out, smacked up haze. But out of that haze came some great music. While the album may have been a commercial disapointment, it did crack the Top 40 and it did eventually go Gold. My favorite cuts are "Jailbait" and "Bolivian Ragamuffin." Along with Night In The Ruts, Rock In A Hard Place is one of my favorite Aerosmith albums. And it's definately a lot better than their next album, Done With Mirrors.

While it doesn't approach either the early classics like Aerosmith, Rocks and Toys In The Attic, and it's not as good as latter smashes like Pump and Permanent Vacation, Aerosmith's 1982 album holds it's own well.
While the album is generally regarded as a flop, it did peak at #32, which isn't close to their most successful album, but for Aerosmith to scrape the lower reaches of the top 40 in 1982, over 3 years after their last hit up to the point and without much radio/MTV airplay showed they still had an audience then.
The sound? Classic Aerosmith with an 80's twist. Lightning Strikes is classic Aerosmith, except it opens up with synthesizers. My personal favorite is Jig Is Up, a bluesy number which still had some "80's"-ness to it.
If you can find this cd for a relatively cheap price, go for it
