Honkin' On Bobo is Aerosmith's long-promised "roots" album where they return to their original bluesy sound. And it exceeds all expectations! As a long time Aerosmith fan who is into both their gritty rocky earlier sound in the 70's and the more commercially pop-orientated sound since the late 80's, hearing this album really made me realize how absent their classic style has been for a long time. But these songs really bring back the band's original essence. Gone are the radio friendly pop-rock numbers and ballads, and back are the classic amazing guitar riffs by Joe Perry, and Steven Tyler squealing into the microphone just like back in the day. The cd is made up of mostly covers of blues songs by their original influences but with their own hooks and classic Aerosmith sound and attitude added. The one exception is probably track 7 "The Grind", which sounds kinda on par with Crazy and Cryin'. But even as a ballady number it still fits in well with the blues vibe. The album as a whole would easily fit nicely in between Rocks and Toys in The Attic. There has not yet been a video for the single Baby Please Don't Go and there's no sign of it getting a UK release on the singles charts, but frankly it most definately isn't the kind of thing typically targeted at the mainstream market or what you'd expect to hear on CD:UK. If you're a fan of the old-school Aerosmith, get it. You will not be disappointed as this contains all the elements of their sound back in the day. If you're only more familiar with their pop-rock sound from the I Don't Want To Miss A Thing era, get it and educate yourself...cos THIS is who Aerosmith are!

Why am I writing a review? I'm speechless! Some may think a woman can bring "Eyesight to the Blind", but this album deserves to bring hearing to the deaf. From the incredible vocals of Steve Tyler (screams, sobs, smooches, sleazes, and ALWAYS sings) through Perry's immaculate and raunchy guitar, to the powerful, driving rhythm section, Aerosmith are the consummate rock band and prove it twelve times over on this album. And why hasn't anyone mentioned Tyler's awesome harmonica playing? It is such an integral part of the music's texture here, an instrument that complements his unique vocal style and brings out the essence of the blues in many of these songs, sometimes subtly, sometimes headlining.
Perhaps the best thing about this album, however, is that although Aerosmith are clearly produced to perfection, there's not too much of the gloss that we've become used to from them. Here we get the raw music that really is the blues.

What could be better? One of the world's best stadium rock bands getting down and dirty in the muddy waters (pun intended) of some pearless blues classics.
Just from the tracklisting you know that this is going to be a superb album and, after the slightly dodgy "Ladeez and gennlemen Step right up..." intro, you're not disappointed. Homage is duly paid to all the blues greats, Blind Willie McTell, Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon etc and their songs are given the full hard rocking, hard balling Aerosmith treatment.
This is not to say that everything is the same tempo and sound. The album sets off at a cracking pace with Steve Tyler in full flow, but after "Baby Please Don't Go" (perhaps the best-known and also perhaps the least well played here) things do settle down...a bit. "Never Loved A Girl" adds in some Memphis Horns, Joe Perry, with assistance from Tracy Bonham, takes over vocals on "Back Back Train", which makes a nice change. The arrangement of "You Gotta Move" is just awesome, and the one Aerosmith original, "The Grind", while showing echoes of their epic ballads of recent vintage, has enough bump and gristle, and a great hook, to make it anthemic. Joe P contributes one more vocal, "Stop Messin' Around", and the album closes with a more traditional, acoustic song, "Jesus On The Mainline" to bring everyone back to earth.
This is the album that I'll wager the Stones or Bon Jovi would have liked to have made, if they'd thought of it first. Blues purists will probably throw their hands up in horror, to hear these tunes given a good seeing to, but it's done very well and the boys obviously had a blast performing them. If you like your rock hard, not heavy, you cannot fail to love this album.

I`ve never been a massive fan. The occasional single maybe and I certainly thought they lost it after the success of that drossy, slushy single a few years ago. However, Honkin` is a totally different prospect. The whole thing sounds like they had a blast; No pressure to produce a single, just Aerosmith doing a "return to roots" gig. Except on a few of the tracks ( Roadrunner, Baby Please Don`t Go and the Bo Diddley-esque You Gotta Move), someone forgot to tell them this was a blues album, not a balls-out rock workout. You Gotta Move steals the show for me, although there isn`t a duff track on the whole album. Other highlights include the down and dirty blues/gospel sounds of Back Back Train, and the even more gospel sounding Jesus is On The Mainline. Special mention also needs to go to the backing singers, especially on Back Back Train.
A five star album for anyone who likes Aerosmith, or even doesn`t like them but is into rock biased blues.
