Product Description

Amazon.ca

Over a remarkable 30 years, Aerosmith has delivered near-perfect hybrids of rock and balladry, converting generations of listeners into devout fanatics. O Yeah! Ultimate Aerosmith Hits drives chronologically through 30 of their best songs, providing a tour of the construction process. And what a process! Listen to "Mama Kin" and you might not recognize Aerosmith at all--here is a young Tyler, before finding his distinctive gritty wail, fronting a simple blues-bar band. But the phenomenal energy and synchronization that developed between Tyler and Perry starts here, and is followed up by successive wonders. "Dream On" captures plodding despair; "Last Child" bears witness to Tyler's mastery of harmony and shriek; "Back in the Saddle" explodes with swagger. Built from the low-end up, Aerosmith's heavy kick, driving bass lines, steady rhythm guitar, and blaring exclamation-point horns create a perfect foundation. And the dirty, harmonic souls of Steven Tyler and Joe Perry do what they do best--put on an over-the-top, flawless show. --Laura Etling

Doesn't anyone with even mild interest in Aerosmith already have a compilation of theirs, considering how many are available (I've got 4 myself)? And even if you do pick this up, another best-of will probably have replaced it on the shelves by the time you get to the checkout counter.
This collection isn't necessarily terrible, it's just a bit insulting to fans. Apparently, either the band, its record labels, or both believe that all we care about is the insipid formulaic drek that Aerosmith has been making ever since "Get a Grip". That stuff takes up half of "Ultimate Aerosmith", while the their best material--from the '70's--is packed into the first ten songs of disc one. I guess the band members don't realize that their early music is what made them popular--and what makes them (almost) tolerable today. (Could a band possibly start out as a bunch of wrinkled ex-(?)coke fiends and sell millions of CDs to kids 35 years their junior?)
And even the picks from the 1970s are a bit odd. I'm very pleased to see "Seasons of Wither", but should it be picked over "Kings and Queens", "Train Kept a-Rolin'" (which is an Aerosmith classic, despite being a cover), or even "Chip Away at the Stone"? And what is "Big Ten Inch Record" doing here? This song is an amusing throwaway that fits well into "Toys in the Attic", but it does not belong on a compilation that claims to be definitive.
Moving on to the 1980's, there are no songs from "Done With Mirrors" (I believe that the "Young Lust" compilation icluded a few of those, however). At the least, "Let the Music Do the Talking" should be here.

First let's address the album's atrocious title. On top of being a mouthful, "O Yeah! Ultimate Aerosmith Hits" is one of the lamest names for a Greatest Hits collection ever. But to be fair, Aerosmith have put out so many hits collections that they're running out of good titles to use. That said, this is definitely the Aerosmith hits collection you'll want to get. "Greatest Hits" and "Big Ones" were both snapshots of a certain point in Aerosmith's career, but "O Yeah!..." encapsulates their entire career (through 2002). All their bigs are here, conveniently in chronological order, except for the Run-DMC version of "Walk This Way" which is wisely put at the end of Disc 2 (the original is on Disc 1). Listening to the songs in order, it's easy to track Aerosmith's career from rock underdogs to the comeback kids to '90s ballad kings. And since everybody has a favorite Aerosmith track, or five, you can be guaranteed that the album will have something for everybody.
On top of 28 of their hits, the albums includes two new numbers: "Girls of Summer" and "Lay It Down". The former is something of a miss: it's basically just generic top 40 summer rock. The latter is a should-have-been-a-hit ballad in the vein of "Angel".
Inevitably Aerosmith will continue to release albums, and by extension, greatest hits albums. But for right now, this is the one with all their hits, and it's worth every penny you'll spend.

And there are many out there. But Aerosmith has rarely let the standard drop over the years, and this two-disc set boasts strong remastered sound and a wealth of great tunes. The first ten on Disc One approximate the original Greatest Hits, including classic rockers like "Walk This Way," "Same Old Song and Dance," "Sweet Emotion" and "Back In The Saddle Again" as well as the oft-played "Dream On." There's also the humorous "Big Ten Inch Record," which you can't be without.
The last half dozen tracks on Disc One pick up with the 1987 LP "Permanent Vacation," and although there's more ballad and melody in the now-clean band (i.e. "Angel," "What It Takes"), there's plenty of finger-snapping rock and roll: "Rag Doll" echoes "Walk This Way," and "Janie's Got A Gun" displays a social conscience and is one of their most powerful songs. There are several big hits from the album "Pump" to open Disc Two, with memorable rockers like "The Other Side" and "Livin' On The Edge," and the more recent stuff is strong as well. Sure, "Don't Want To Miss A Thing" is a tad sappy, and "Just Push Play" nods obviously to hip-hop. But "Pink," "Jaded" and "Falling in Love Is Hard on the Knees" are classic Aerosmith.
The remake/hybrid of "Walk This Way" with Run DMC is included, and it's enjoyable in the spirit intended--Perry's guitar sizzles, by the way. The final tracks, "Girls of Summer" and "Lay It Down," were new at the time of release. "Girls of Summer" is a melodic rocker with just a hint of Eastern influence. "Lay It Down" is a fine ballad. Sure, there are countless compilations of this great band out there, and I'm sure Aerosmith diehards get tired of seeing them. But for the casual fan, this is an awfully good place to start.

if this would have been the track listing this would have been the perfect aerosmith compilation and probably the only aerosmith cd most casual fans will need. nevertheless it is a very good compilation and still is probably the only aerosmith cd most fans will need. (if you wanna dig deeper into the bands catalog, pick up the following: get your wings, toys in the attic, rocks, or pump.)
