3.0 out of 5 stars Entry level Aerosmith for post 1986 fans 3.5 Stars, 7 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Big Ones (Audio CD)
An overview of MTV Generation Aerosmith/ the first ten years with Geffen Records.

I have three major criticisms.

Number one: The first Geffen album " Done with Mirrors" has seemingly been deleted from history.

Number two: The huge worldwide selling collaboration of " Walk This Way" with RUN DMC didn't make the cut, which is remarkable as that record went a long way into catapulting Aerosmith to an entirely new generation of younger fans.

Number three: There is a pointless live version of " Dude ( Looks Like a Lady)" of which the studio version also appears on here & 3 new songs, of which only " Walk on Water" is anywhere near Aerosmith's high standards. These could of easily been replaced with the remake of " Walk This Way" & 2 or 3 songs from " Done with Mirrors".

This is basically the singles off " Permanent Vacation", "Pump", & " Get a Grip" with a couple of new songs thrown in.

When it hits the spot, it's superb. " Dude ( Looks Like a Lady) ", " Walk on Water", " Eat the Rich", " Janies Got a Gun", " What it Takes", " Angel", " Livin' on the Edge" & " Love in an Elevator" pay testament to this.

When it misses it's very, very mediocre. " Crazy", " Amazing"," Deuces Are Wild", " Rag Doll", " The Other Side", " Blind Man", & " Cryin'" leaves you wandering in the MTV wilderness hoping that the real Aerosmith will stand up soon....

OK, but a long way from essential.
