AEROSMITH is one of the greatest..ask your mother ask your girlfriend Aerosmith rules...

From: Steve F. Date: May 7, 2001 at 19:54
This is WAAY above the s/t in every way what so ever. In fact, it's hard to believe that the band could go further than this, but they did. The riffs on "Lord of the Thighs" and "Pandora's Box" are impossible to forget, and Joe Perry especially shines on this album. "Train" is one of the few covers I've heard that blows me away more than the original songs! This is the first ESSENTIAL Aerosmith album to pick up (too bad the band doesn't do more of these songs in concert these days).

From: Bisho Date: July 31, 2001 at 10:51
WOW! What a sophomore effort. This album surpasses the S/T in leaps & bounds both musically and vocally! Classic AEROSMITH.

From: Musicman Date: September 30, 2001 at 12:00
This I believe may be the greatest Aerosmith album ever!

From: TT Date: November 14, 2001 at 9:56
Still my fav album by Aerosmith. This an incredible disc that has no equal in their catalogue. They have other albums that are great, but this was and still is their best. Still finding regular play on my sound systems.

From: Metallosmith Date: March 14, 2002 at 9:50
This is one of Aeromiths best albums. Train Kept Rollin' doesn't get much better!! My thought s on it is Aerosmth Rock on!!!!

From: RichieRocker Date: June 9, 2002 at 16:51
Unbelievable album. I was just listening too it. I love all the songs on it, especially Train Kept Rollin, Seasons Of Wither, and Same Old Song And Dance. This is a must have.

From: RichieRocker Date: June 9, 2002 at 16:53
I hate when some punk says"I love Aerosmith I just got "Just Push Play" and I love the Aemegeddon soundtrack. If I talk to someone and they say ya I have "Get Your Wings, or Toys In The Attic, I know they are a fan.

From: Kim Date: June 9, 2002 at 16:57
Ok. Richie. this is the only album I dont have by Aerosmith, But I will have to get it tommorow. I want to complete my Aerosmith collection. Thanks for costing me 10 USD. Ha ha. , ,,

From: RichieRocker Date: June 9, 2002 at 17:05
The Bad Boys from Boston kick ass!! Kim stop what your doing and get this album and play it as loud as you can!!!! You wont be dissapointed.

From: RichieRocker Date: June 22, 2002 at 19:18
Jam, maybe you can agree with my thoughts on this one! "I hate when someone says"I love Aerosmith just push play and the armegeddon soundtrack are awesome, but they dont own "wings" "toys" Rocks" or "Draw the line" if someone loves Aerosmith and they mention all the albums I just mentioned then I know they are a fan. Rock on people!!!!

From: Nift Date: September 6, 2002 at 22:16
Train Kept a Rollin...am I only one that thinks this song is one of the all time greatest rockers not just of Aerosmith material but of all rock songs?????????

From: Desslar Date: September 8, 2002 at 12:07
Yeah, Train Kept A Rollin is probably one of their best songs. Is it an original though? I thought they covered someone.

From: Blue Charvel Date: September 9, 2002 at 13:33
It's definitely a cover, but I can't remember who did it originally. One o' them old blues dudes I think. It does rock with the Aerosmith treatment though.

From: Long Time Fan Date: October 25, 2002 at 11:18
Simply put- F***-in' Great album. Classic. And Train Kept a Rollin is a cover of a Yardbirds song (Jeff Beck era), which was originally by Johnny Burnette And The Rock 'n' Roll Trio. Rumor has it that on GYW's version, when it turns live the audience had been ignoring the band so Joe Perry turned the volume up to 10 and that got their attention.

From: The FIzzy One Date: October 25, 2002 at 11:37
And rumor also has it that the live portion of "Train Kept A-Rollin'" was faked and that Joe Perry didn't actually play on some of these songs, including "Train" and "Same Old Song and Dance."

From: J Scott Date: October 28, 2002 at 19:54
Seasons of Wither One of the best ballads of all-time. "Nuff Said"

From: Darian Dennison Date: January 22, 2003 at 2:23
Get Your Wings in my opinion is Aerosmith's all time best album, cause it has Same Old Song and Dance, Lord of the Thighs, Train Kept A Rollin' and Aerosmith's best ballad Seasons of Wither, it's much better than I Don't Want to Miss a Thing. If you love classic Aerosmith, then you must own this album.

From: razor2467 Date: June 22, 2003 at 6:09
One of my all time favorites!!!! Man, there isnt a bad tune on this album!! Seasons of Wither, Train kept a Rollin, Spaced, S.O.S, ...the whole album, just killer killer tunes!! Hey, I've also heard that Train kept a Rollin wasnt really live on this disc.

From: Brian Mc Date: October 16, 2003 at 0:57
This is their greatest lp. Fabulous through & through. Fantastic production, good use of horns & acoustic guitars, & muscular lyrics. Even today this lp is a major staple on classic rock & AOR stations coast to coast (& my house 4-5 times a month!) Aerosmith's cover of "Train Kept 'a Rollin'" is awesome like Hendrix doing Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower" or Gary Moore covering The Yardbirds' "Shapes of Things". If you claim to be an Aerosmith fan but don't have this one, you're an idiot!

Aerosmith surpass the "sophomore slump" with this gem. One of the first Smith albums I bought, and this is the only one that I've owned in all three major formats -- first vinyl, then cassette, now on CD. "Seasons Of Wither" found its way back into the set list when I saw Smith on the PUMP tour and you could've knocked me over with a feather!

From: Big Lee Date: May 20, 2004 at 19:00
Train Kept A-rollin' is a cover, but it stands head and shoulders above other covers (and the original) IMHO. BTW - Steven Hunter (session guitarist par excellence - Lou Reed, Alice Cooper etc) did some guitar overdubs on this album - Train Kept A-Rollin' amoung other cuts. He is not credited on the album. Not that it matters, the sum is greater than the parts and it still moves!

From: Big Papa K Date: July 13, 2004 at 17:17
Improvement over the debut. They show some more variety on this one and come up with another awesome ballad in "Seasons Of Wither". The harder songs this time are better than the debut, but a couple are poor ("Pandora's Box" being one). 8/10

From: Lullń Milanese Date: July 24, 2004 at 9:49
"If it wasn't for Aerosmith, there wouldn't be as much mini-skirts as we have nowadays in America" this quote just translates what Aerosmith means to rock n'roll. Get Your Wings is hot, it's sexy. I wonder how much impact it caused by the time it was released...

From: Date: September 18, 2004 at 9:28
Very impressive album and so different to Aerosmith of today a much harder and less commercial edge. Outstanding tracks for me would have to be Same old song and dance and seasons of wither, but Lord of the thighs and spaced while being competent didn't really do much for me. However overall an 8/10 for a very solid album

From: roisindubh Date: September 18, 2004 at 10:12
oops, missed name off comments, above commernts from me

From: Propane Date: December 2, 2004 at 12:13
Here ya go. Timeless Aerosmith. The way hard rock should always be played. Every one on this disc is good.

From: Nick C Date: February 22, 2005 at 17:33
Propane is bang on! Aerosmith were still developing their sound and there are some great songs on here like Spaced which they never really came close to sound wise again. Joey Kramer even gets a writing credit on Pandoras Box.

From: Lovedrive Date: May 31, 2005 at 8:57
Gran disco (y que bien cantaba en esta Úpoca Steven Tyler). "Seasons of Wither" IMPRESIONANTE

From: aMetalhead1966 Date: February 13, 2006 at 15:22
Now this is Rock!!!It has hints of glam,blooze,metal,funk..but it has it all wrapped up and baked nicely to a crispy brown sound. It is an all time classic IMHO.Bands from GnR to Cinderella to Faster Pussycat,Crue,VH..Etc all have taken apage or three from Aerosmith.10/10.

From: Metalmusicman Date: January 2, 2007 at 19:07
Everyone else seems to find this one better than the debut but me. While I still found it to be a very good rock album, I just thought the debut had a more consistant song base overall than this one, which I found to be a little hit or miss. Like I said it is good, just not great for me. Still, songs like "Train Kept A Rollin'", "Same Old Song And Dance", and "Seasons Of Wither" are among the best the band have ever done. Tyler's vocals are clearly better on the debut IMO.

From: hair metal again Date: May 30, 2010 at 9:18
excellent 2nd step for AEROSMITH.there is nt one filler here,all the songs are important.it must have been a shock everytime they released an album back then!brilliant

From: CC Date: September 19, 2012 at 6:35
Just finally got this one to complete my Aerosmith studio discography, and started reading some comments here. One thing that struck me is the comments by RichieRocker. No offense to Richie as he is entitled to his opinion, but I have always found the "You dont own the early albums, so you cant be a fan" attitude to be kind of elitist. I happen to prefer 80s/90s Aerosmith to 70s Aerosmith. I also prefer the same era for Kiss over their 70s output, so apparently that means I am not a fan. Everyone has different tastes, and just because they prefer a different era does not mean they are not a true fan, it just means they like something different to you. Is this a good album? Yes. But give me Permanent Vacation or Pump over this. I own the whole Aerosmith, Kiss and Alice Cooper discographies, but the 70s albums for me are best represented by best of albums.

From: Doug Date: September 19, 2012 at 16:04
Good debate about when someone catches on to a band. CC you are probably younger than RichieRocker (guessing?). Probably explains the preferences in sound. I'm that way when it comes to Elton John, amazing in the '70's, not so much after that. To each his/her own I guess.

From: CC Date: September 19, 2012 at 19:42
Well I cant speak for Richie, but I am in my 40s. There are bands that I prefer their earlier output, but I think you got my point in that the chances are anyone who comes to a band at a certain point in their career is probably gonna prefer that particular era as thats what got them into the band. It doesnt make them any less of a fan because they prefer the later stuff. There is stuff I love from the 70s, and my musical tastes go way back beyond that (I grew up listening to old school rock n roll when everyone else was listening to modern pop at school) and into multiple genres, which is probably why I think its unfair to knock someone for liking a different era from a band. See gimme a band like Skynyrd, and I am all over the 70s stuff.
