A pathetic attempt at a comeback from a band that had pieces of bands like the one that recorded "Done with Mirrors" in their stool. That about sums it all up in one big flush. SIXXSWINE-1.0 for sure folks!

From: Bisho Date: July 31, 2001 at 11:11
Not too bad an album for AEROSMITH clone. Wait a minute. This is AEROSMITH! Unfortunately this is the real deal at their worst. Major disappointment.

From: Musicman Date: September 28, 2001 at 6:43
I like this cd, yea it is slugish at times, but you can tell they are wasted and burned out. The feel is what counts on this one. The feeling is there, it's like the are trying to tell you they can rock but they are standing behind the mirror. No overproduction here, just a good vide to sit back and enjoy.

From: Date: May 31, 2002 at 14:03
hey SIXXSWINE it's you again!!! (see Wasp for further details). A pathetic attemps you say!!! In 1985, after a long period without Joe the band was back and the album was great! I love all the songs of this album, particularly let the music do the talking (first recorded on Joe solo album) and Sheila. Thank you Musicman to realy listen this album.

From: RichieRocker Date: June 27, 2002 at 21:29
Pretty decent album I like "Let the music do the talking" "Shes on Fire" and "My fist your face" an ok effort but its not my favorite.

From: Steve T Date: August 30, 2002 at 17:19
Good album....the LAST real 'rock' album the band made before surrendering to the corporate dollar.

From: Nift Date: September 6, 2002 at 22:32
first 2 tracks and then burn the rest...what a horror

From: Fat Freddy Date: January 5, 2004 at 17:02
Aerosmith were still working on sobriety at this point (I believe the entire band wasn't totally "clean" till PERMANENT VACATION) so this one's a bit confused and muddy. "Let The Music Do The Talking" (a re-working of a Joe Perry Project tune) and "Darkness" are excellent, but the rest reeks of filler. The big comeback explosion was just around the corner, though. On this album you can tell it's almost there, but all the pieces weren't in place yet. Bring on PERMANENT VACATION!

From: Twitch Date: April 29, 2004 at 0:40
Slightly unusual for an Aero LP (The Reason A Dog - brilliant,tho'), but extremely underrated...

From: Big Papa K Date: July 13, 2004 at 17:27
What a lame comeback record. The best track on here is a remake of Joe Perry's solo track "Let The Music Do The Talking". The rest of this is just tired Aerosmith on auto-pilot. 4/10

From: Kryiis Karl Date: November 5, 2004 at 12:57
Very good release though I agree with some comments...something is missing to make it really big, but inspiration was here and it was like they were new beginners in a way. Sheila sounds very good to me.

From: Propane Date: December 2, 2004 at 12:28
Tremendously flawed disappointment. Was expecting much better.

My introduction to Aerosmith (other than the collaboration with Run DMC) was the Pump album. As I loved that, I then picked up Vacation and loved that too. Next on my list was this one, and I have to say I wasnt as impressed. There are some great tunes on here such as the cover of Let the music, My fist, The reason a dog and The hop, but overall it just wasnt as exciting for me as the two that followed it. I can sort of see why early Smiths fans dismiss it, but I think it was a solid effort all things considered. And for me is not better or worse than most of their early stuff, as I found all their classic albums to be patchy. For me the Permanent/Pump/Grip trilogy were what defined their sound, but this was certainly a foundation stone of that sound.
