Aerosmith's 12th album from 1997 was the first marking their "re-debut" with Sony/Columbia Music, the label where they started their recording career in 1972. They moved to Geffen Records in 1979 and Sony/Columbia lured them back in 1996. This special edition includes two tracks not found on the US equivalent: "Falling Off" and their first Number One pop single, the movie theme from the hit motion picture "Armageddon", "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing", which was written by Diane Warren.
Nominated for a 1998 Grammy award for Best Rock Album and featuring the single, "Falling in Love (Is Hard on the Knees)," nominated for a Best Rock Performance, Nine Lives is Aerosmith's first album in their lucrative re-signing to Columbia Records. Together over 25 years, the Boston band has always been known for their gritty sex anthems, hard-buckling rhythms, and bic-flicking power ballads. Not nearly as flat-out rock as previous releases, Pump or Get A Grip, Nine Lives experiments with a multitude of instruments, including hammered dulcimer, Indian fiddle, and Chapman stick. This Noah's Ark approach allows the band to experiment within its rock parameters with the appropriately titled "A Taste of India." They haven't sworn off the ballads ("Fallen Angels" is what you'd expect) and they still riff like the Aerosmith of old ("Crash"). --Rob O'Connor

Unfortunatley, when compared to 'classic' Aerosmith like Toys in The Attic or more recent efforts like Get A Grip, Permanent Vacation, or Pump, Nine Lives falls short.
It is not a bad album, containing great songs like Nine Lives and Pink, but it is not a great album either.
If your Aerosmith dollar is limited, choose one of the other albums I already mentioned. If you have those already and are looking to sate your Aerosmith fix...Nine Lives is a good place to look for it.
Nine Lives blasts you off as a statement and theme of the album of never dying and always coming back with force. The intro builds and the song knocks your socks off . Fast and to the point. Great starter much like Young Lust started off Pump. Taste of India is a very original song with a heavy sound. The instruments really make this one. The use of the dulcimer is very underrated and brings out lots of innovation. Full Circle is an all around great song. One that makes you appreciate the little things. Not necessarily a ballad, but one to drink to. Raise your glass! The Farm is very funny and has a funky raunch to it. Crash is a very intense and heavy song. The lyrics are hilarious with some cool solos. I mention these songs because they make this album with their intensity and originality. All the others are big hits and sound like Aerosmith! Steven Tyler said "Our music is twos and fours...like sex...
Not since "Back in the Saddle" has an opener come in with the roar of the title track. Seeing them open with during the tour to this album, I can attest that this album was made to be played live. I don't know if I can say that about "Just Push Play" but that's a discussion for another day. "Falling In Love...." may be a cop out of some sorts to sell the album via catchy single but it's still lyrically amazing.
"Taste of India" and "the Farm" show the band at their creative peak. With just a hint of The Beatles, they push the boundaries of modern music through brilliant and original instrumentation. "Crash" also silences all critics who said that the band is too old to make a bunch of noise.
IMHO, this is Aerosmoth's modern masterpiece. It shows the band comfortable and natural in their experimenting. And best of all, it shows the band getting back to their roots. With songs like "Attitude Adjustment" you'd think it was "Rocks". But no, it's just Aerosmith's best answer to that very album.

It was cracked when I received it and only half the cd worked. Could have been in the delivery. I didn't bother returning it because it would have taken too much effort. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
From the opening of the album, there's no doubt that Steven Tyler is back and singing his considerable lips off. Read morePublished on Feb. 25 2004 by Vilbs
NINE LIVES is not one of AEROSMITH's finer cds. The production on this cd is pretty bad, taking away alot of their crunch, makeing the music too condensed. Read morePublished on Dec 12 2003 by Eric J. Weik
