4.0 out of 5 stars Once again, another live Aerosmith CD...
They seem to make a living out of releasing live versions of their songs, but once again, to the Aerosmith fan, this CD is indispensible.
Obviously taking place in Las Vegas, this live show features songs that are not very well known to the casual music fan. Sure, they sing Walk This Way and I Don't Want To Miss A Thing (both versions one of the better tracks on...

3.0 out of 5 stars By the End They Are
This album is a strange one. I, for one, don't mind the inclusion of the Just Push Play material, but since none of the tracks here are as good as any of their album counterparts, this release is nice to have, but not earth shattering.

The band is tight, the mix is good (though perhaps the guitars sound a bit thinner than they should) and Steve Tyler is in good...

They seem to make a living out of releasing live versions of their songs, but once again, to the Aerosmith fan, this CD is indispensible.
Obviously taking place in Las Vegas, this live show features songs that are not very well known to the casual music fan. Sure, they sing Walk This Way and I Don't Want To Miss A Thing (both versions one of the better tracks on the album), but the rest of the CD is older, less recognisable songs. If you are a newcomer to Aerosmith, then this CD is probably not the best place to start.
For fans, its great to hear the band play songs they don't usually perform live. Rattlesnake Shake is the stand out on the album, and Joe Perry's instantaneous, improvised solos are a joy to behold.
The album is slightly short, I bet they performed more than 11 songs at the actual show, and the first song is just a Good Evening introduction, not a proper song, but even so, I didn't feel short changed listening to the album. It was a fun, exciting show, and filled with all the Steve Tyler trademarks.

3.0 out of 5 stars By the End They Are, 19 Nov 2012

This review is from: Rockin' The Joint: Live at the Hard Rock Hotel, Las Vegas (Audio CD)
This album is a strange one. I, for one, don't mind the inclusion of the Just Push Play material, but since none of the tracks here are as good as any of their album counterparts, this release is nice to have, but not earth shattering.

The band is tight, the mix is good (though perhaps the guitars sound a bit thinner than they should) and Steve Tyler is in good voice. However, it doesn't really get off the ground until Draw the Line (which features an excellent Joe Perry solo). I Don't Want to Miss a Thing seems rather lacking in a live context. This song misses its soaring string parts and thick production. But after that, suddenly, the music becomes freer and as they tear through Big Ten Inch Record, Rattlesnake Shake, Walk this Way and Train Kept a Rollin, you get to see the fire this band usually shows. Steve Tyler reminisces about how Rattlesnake was the first song he heard the band play, and you can hear the affection they must have for this classic material in their playing.

Not as good as a Little South of Sanity and covering less interesting material than Live! Bootleg, this album is still good record of entertaining show. It's just a shame, since they are capable of so much better. (Oh well, I'll have to get Music from Another Dimension instead.)

2.0 out of 5 stars "LAZY", 5 Dec 2005
This review is from: Rockin' The Joint: Live at the Hard Rock Hotel, Las Vegas (Audio CD)
Well having been an avid Aerosmith fan for years I was delighted that a new live album was being realeased, what did we get instead? A lazy, over produced mish mash of old and new songs that none of which stand out as being "exciting or emotional". How can an Aerosmith Live Album open with "Beyond Beautiful" is way "beyond" me when you consider that this particular track was one of the weaker creations from that very "mediocre" album "Just Push Play". From then on in this so called "live" event just goes down hill. Steven Tyler delivers as usual but even his colourful language is bleeped out!! This whole affair is totally lacking in colour..........but at least it sold a few hundred copies and keeps the band in a never ending supply of fat cigars. AVOID at all costs if you are a devout Aerohead!
