Nobody swaggers with quite the same level of savage assurance as Steven Tyler and Joe Perry. Aerosmith's titanic Toxic Twins have steadily gravitated from humble Boston beginnings to become the foremost rock & roll swashbucklers in the entire cosmos. Alongside their long-time partners in excess, Brad Whitford, Tom Hamilton and Joey Kramer, they've laid down some of the true classics of their chosen genre, and Gems is a sonic jewel case of delights. The band have always been well served with greatest hits packages, but Gems concentrates on oft-forgotten album tracks from their truly illustrious past. Consequently, alongside such feral garage-blasters as "Mamma Kin" you'll find their celebrated assault on "Train Kept A Rollin" and Tyler's semi-autobiographical, self-aggrandising AOR staple "Lord Of The Thighs". If you're in search of power ballad heaven, then look elsewhere, but if you're taste is for uncommonly salacious hard rock, you've just hit the jackpot. --Ian Fortnam
Top Customer Reviews
All the non commercial fan favourites adorn this total gem of a compilation. We are dealing with the top of the food chain here. If " Rats in the Cellar", " Mama Kin", " Lord of the Thighs" & " The Train Kept a Rolling" send out a real statement of intent then, " Critical Mass", " Round and Round", " Nobody's Fault" & " Lick and a Promise" hammer it home with real vengeance.
Forget the countless mediocre compilations brandishing the Aerosmith name, this, coupled with the first " Aerosmith's Greatest Hits" is by far the best of the bunch.
