Customer Review

on 12 November 2012
As usual, the best way to listen to a new Aerosmith album is to listen to it LOUD! Music From Another Dimension is a return to greatness! After a wait of 11 long years for new (original) material, rumours of ructions within the group and fallings out between the Toxic Twins in recent years, there were thoughts among the fans that 2004's Honkin' On Bobo blues album may end up being the last Aerosmith album. Over recent years, we've all been a little disappointed that Aerosmith continued to release various different "Greatest Hits" albums, most of which contained the same songs. This was particularly evident with the releases of "Young Lust", "O, Yeah", "Devils Got A New Disguise" and "The Essential", which have all been released in the years since Aerosmith's last original album Just Push Play in 2001. However, with the release of Music From Another Dimension, i have to say that Aerosmith seem to have found their groove again. I have to say, even as I own all the @Aerosmith albums, Music From Another Dimension is easily as good as the Vacation/Pump/Grip era Aerosmith. Not sure that you can compare it to the early albums like Rocks, Toys In The Attic or Night In The Ruts as the lads have clearly evolved over the last 40 years! From a personal point of view, if I was to compare Music from Another Dimension to another of Aerosmith's albums, I would say that it reminds me of Get A Grip, in the sense that Get A Grip was an eclectic psychedelic sandwich of ballads, blues & rock anthems, Music From Another Dimension is a distinctly Aerosmith album. Some people will always have a moan about Joe Perry's vocal talents, but the track he sings lead on, Freedom Fighter, is a typical Joe Perry track, even if he isn't the strongest singer in the band. He also sings lead on Something.
In essence, the people that will buy this album are the die-hard Aerosmith fans. But this album will also appeal to rock music fans across the world, for its mixture of ballads like What Could Have Been Love and Another Last Goodbye, rock anthems such as Legendary Child and Luv XXX and some true Aerosmith blues-inspired tracks like Something. For me, this is the long-awaited return of the "Demon O'Screamin" and the band that has epitomised American stadium rock for the last 40 years! Here's to another few years...
