2002 compilation featuring 30 tracks from their years with Columbia & Geffen. Hologram cover. 2002.
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

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.Read more ›
Having blockbuster hits in the 70's, 80's, 90's and now the 21st century it is clear they just might have that thing known as staying power to be reckoned with. And considering they have now sold over 130 million albums worldwide they could be considered a band that makes good music. Hmmmmm... makes you wonder!
For anyone who truly wants a Great Aerosmith Album, here it is... so guess what!.... Buy it!! Now I cant wait for the massive box set in 2005 of all of their unreleased material which is rumored to be around 25 cd's from B sides to live performances. That baby I will buy on day one no matter what the cost! And as always.... Sorry Stones.. AEROSMITH IS SIMPLY THE BEST!
Now if only I could get Aerosmith to play a gig at my home I could truly die a happy man!!
I like how this cd is mostly focussed on their GOOD music (the early and classic music). I am a huge fan of aerosmith, but their new music is just pathetic compared to their old classics lately. Yes, there are some of the new hits (Rag Doll, Dude, Looks like a lady) but you can tolerate 2 bad songs.
I HATE the new songs on this album. Girls of Summer and Lay it Down are both soft, easy listening, songs, not like aerosmith at all.
Most Aerosmith collections have also included special photos, lyrics, or some sort of special edition thing. This included nothing. Not much of a problem. I have too many extra aerosmith things right now as it is.
Besides these small downsides, this album is superb. Other aerosmith fans that like the new suff (well, NO aerosmith fan likes the new stuff or else they are not a fan), will be slightly dissapointed for the lack of new songs. For me, and millions of others, this will be a good thing. Just decide what kinds of songs you want to be hearing. If you want a collection of new hits, you can get Big Ones. That album has all of their hits from the late 80's and 90's. It does not include songs from Nine Lives or Just Push Play. Who really cares about all of that stuff though? The 2nd cd is FULL of new hits (that are good AND bad). Just choose correctly :)

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. Read morePublished on June 8 2004 by Joe Lee
