Simply a cash in on their previous effort PUMP. While the songs are enjoyable the album leaves you wanting so much more!

From: SHAG Date: October 23, 2001 at 6:48
Not a bad album, but a pretty good introduction to the bubblegum rock that they make now!!!! Not the Aerosmith of the past!!! It's almost like a bunch of women wrote, played, and produced the entire album!!!

From: Harvey Date: January 1, 2002 at 9:02
First 5 songs are good.... then the slide begins. Witness the demise of the grit that made Aerosmith great in about 35 teeth grinding minutes. Listening to Cryin' and Crazy it's hard to believe it's the same band who recorded Rocks, Toys, Pump. Heartbreakingly bad and, what's worse, I'm sure messrs Tyler and Perry know it!!

From: M. Allen Date: April 3, 2002 at 3:34
I know all the diehard Aerosmith fans out there are going to want to rip the flesh from my bones like a school of starving piranha for saying this, but I think Aerosmith's early albums suck and feel 'Get a Grip' is one of their best releases (along with 'Nine Lives' & 'Pump'). 'Livin' on the Edge' is a great song, and the production, courtesy of Bruce Fairbairn, sounds very good. I know some people consider this a sellout album, but I just ain't sure what they're gripin' about.

From: Kane Roberts Date: June 6, 2002 at 19:00
Just 3 songs here, but 3 fenomenal and killer songs: Cryin', Crazy and Amazing! Cryin' is one of the best Hard Rock songs ever! It's very funny to see how people see Cryin' as a ballad! HAHAHA! Losers!

From: Rockforever Date: July 24, 2002 at 13:44
M Allen I think everyones entitled to their opinion,but Aero's early records are GREAT.However, I like later Aerosmith too.This is a very good record,not as good as Pump or Perm.Vac.,but still very good.Livin on the Edge is one of their best ever songs,Walk on Down is a great angry,bluesy track from Joe,Shut up and dance is cool (co-written by half of the Damn Yankees),and Eat the Rich is a stomper.The three ballads are all excellent (especially Amazing).Nine Lives would prove not to be as good.

From: Absolut Glam Date: August 2, 2002 at 23:31
What 3 ballads, Mr. Rockforever? I just see 2 here (Crazy and Amazing)...

From: MALLORCA´S ROCK Date: December 3, 2002 at 8:35
Buen disco pero bastante inferior al Pump 7,5/10

From: Aero Force Mike Date: March 21, 2003 at 18:03
Excluding the ballads - this album rocks. Sadly this seems like the last time Aerosmith truly rocked. Fever absolutely rules, whilst other rockers Get a Grip, Walk on Down, Flesh, Shut Up and Dance, Gotta Have It and Boogie Man all rock like they haven't lost a step. Sadly the ballad-rocker-ratio was altered here, and the compulsory 'one ballad per album' was bunked up to a cringing three - I can handle Crying but the other-two are complete throw-away. Although overproduced, I still love it.

Whoops made a mistake on my last one - said that Gotta Have It and Boogie Man were cool tracks... at the time of writing I was at work and going from memory. Gotta Have It sucks, just sucks, it rocks but it sucks. Line Up is the song i was thinking of, it's just really pumping in a Permenant Vacation style, and Boogie Man is just an instrumental, like at the end of Vacation. Still a reasonably good album. 7/10.

From: keebler Date: October 4, 2003 at 14:46
i like this cd alot to good video's.

From: Fat Freddy Date: January 5, 2004 at 16:59
Here's where I jumped off the Aerosmith train. After listening to PUMP day in and day out for nearly four years, I ran out on the first day of release to get this album... and thought it sucked. Either my tastes had changed, or Aerosmith had changed, I'm not sure to this day, but to me this album just sounds like lukewarm re-hashes of PUMP songs. Little did I know they would get even poppier and more irrelevant as time went on!

From: Big Papa K Date: July 13, 2004 at 17:32
This record is just a mess. The four ballads on here are all interchangeable and all bad. Is there a difference between 'Crazy' and 'Cryin''? The rock songs on here are among the worst of their career. Just a terrible record. 3/10

From: Rycheage Date: July 14, 2004 at 22:07
Big Papa K has it right on the money. What a mess!! The ballads suck and sound the same and the rockers have no continuity to them. Very samey and very crappy. But they did make alot of cash due to the success of 'Pump'. Avoid at all costs unless you have to finish your Aerosmith collection.

From: Richierocker Date: July 14, 2004 at 22:49
Thisis where all the rock n rol Aerosmith posers came out of the woodwork. They say they love Aerosmith but they can onlky name this album and a few classics. This is a spft album and it dint do much for me, way to mainstream and a lot of wanna bes call themselves Aerosmith fans just because they have this album.

From: jack Date: August 9, 2004 at 5:08
Big papa K and Rycheage,what are you two saying? cryin is not a ballad. thats like saying sweet child o mine and god gave rock and roll to you 2 a ballad. But i agree with you two that this album is one of the worst in thier career. Personally, ithink toys are their best.

From: Nick Clarkson Date: October 21, 2004 at 14:35
It actually sounds better on random play on your CD player. But there's too many ballads and nonsense like Shut Up and Dance. A few good songs Flesh, Walk on Down, Gotta Love It and Eat the Rich do not a classic album make!

From: Propane Date: December 2, 2004 at 13:06
Hey, M Allen: Your opinion is always respected so give it to everyone honestly, no problem at all. As for me, This is some of the biggest bag of garbage I've ever in my life heard. Totally sold out band at this point, now wanting that teenie-bopper money. If somebody's going to visit you and you even suspect they like Aerosmith, hide this one.

From: Geoff Date: March 21, 2005 at 2:23
I must agree with Propane above. This is just a waste of space in my collection to be honest. I've tried to sell it but you can't really even give this one away. I don't mind 'Livin' on the edge' and ''Cryin'... I think even 'Crazy' was okay. Still, not a fan of these guys at all.

From: Dave Stamos Date: May 2, 2005 at 5:09
Aerosmith que estaban viviendo su segunda juventud gracias a esos discos impresionantes como 'Permanent vacation' o ese multiplatino 'Pump',arrasaron con este genial album. Siguiendo la línea de los dos anteriores y sin perder un ápice del feeling de sus inicios hacen su multimillonaria obra.Aerosmith todo un nombre y una leyenda de la historia de la música,pese a las críticas se mantuvieron en la brecha hard rock americano con pinceladas aor en ocasiones que les hacen únicos.

I would have to agree with Jaime 100%, even after reading Aorforever's impressive and convincing argument to the contrary. You'd think the whole login thing would weed out the 'fenomenally' stupid... Eat The Rich was not a bad song, but this disc is so chock full of middle of the road crap it really isn't worth it. Aerosmith had long since sold their souls to the devil of mediocrity when this came out...

This is absolutely without any doubt the best CD Aerosmith have ever made. All the ballads are very good, you can discuss if 'Cryin' is a ballad. I will call 'Cryin' for a Monster ballad. Because it is a very very hard ballad if it is a ballad. For me it is a monster ballad or a very hard rocking ballad.Just like Skid Row 'I remember you' and Seven Ten 'Cross my heart'

From: headbanger4life Date: July 18, 2007 at 5:02
The only sone that I really liked off of here is 'Livin' on the Edge'. 'Cryin' was an ok ballad. Other than that, the rest was just average stuff that I wouldn't expect from a band like this. After I bought this one, I wasn't in a hurry to run out and pick up any of there new releases the day they came out.

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: September 30, 2007 at 14:19
Aunque es inferior al 'Pump' en cuanto a calidad y maestría, hay que reconocer que con este 'Get A Grip' los de Boston, asegurarían su vigencia. No contamos con esa versatilidad y frescura de el 'Pump', pero se sigue practicando ese Rock corrosivo y picante en temas como 'Livin´On The Edge', 'Get A Grip' y 'Eat The Rich'. Por otro lado baladas como 'Cryin´', 'Crazy' y 'Amazing' poseen gran fuerza, gancho e intensidad.

From: David sleaze Date: January 25, 2008 at 21:54
the most album that i like very much, more powerfull and great ballads

From: suspicious.heart Date: October 12, 2008 at 3:05
Hearing Jeff Scott Soto's version of "Cryin" is what made me pick this up, and I'm glad I did. What can I say? I'm a sucker for ballads, and this album has three of the best. Plus "Eat The Rich" and "Livin' On The Edge" are pretty awesome.

From: Remastered Reason Date: March 19, 2009 at 4:05
Every blue moon, i need an Aerosmith fix from '87 to '93. This cd somehow always manages to get into the rotation first, before "Perm. Vacation" & "Pump". However, any of these already classics could headline my audio sequence. Not saying this album is better but i probably listened to it more back when it first came out because of all the grunge dung that dominated the industry. Looking back, it's amazing an album like this came out in the early '90's. Great stuff for back then & still holds up today.

From: hair metal again Date: May 16, 2010 at 1:26
fantastic release by legendary AEROSMITH.this one has everything from hard rockers like "eat the rich", "gotta love it","walk on down" till the awesome ballads you all know.it got out at the end of the big hard rock era and stood up proudly i think.valuable help by bruce fairbairn,desmond child,jim vallance,jack blades,tommy shaw,lenny kravitz and many more.amazing release indeed.you know i got no problem when hard rock gets mainstream

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: May 16, 2010 at 11:51
"Eat The Rich" and "Cryin'" are the only two songs I still like off this one, and even then, I don't listen to them much. THey don't sound hungry. At least on Permanent Vacation there was creativity flowing adn they had something to prove. Pump rocked harder in places, and was more creative in other places. This is just the worst parts of both those albums combined. And I don't think I EVER liked "Livin' On The Edge," possibly the longest six minutes ever recorded.

From: edwithmj Date: January 17, 2011 at 13:53
Not good this one. Eat The Rich and Shut Up And Dance are semi-listenable but even then are pretty sub-par compared to other stuff. The two ballads: Cryin' and Crazy are pretty decent but sound too similar to eachother. 67/100

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 12, 2014 at 18:44
This one along with "Pump" sold millions of copies worldwide,only this release has 5 hit singles("Eat The Rich","Livin' On The Edge","Cryin'","Crazy" & "Amazing")..."Get A Grip" & "Line Up" are also 2 good songs outta hit single ones...88/100...enjoyable and...extremely commercial

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: January 12, 2014 at 21:40
It's fnny: rockers like us always mention "Eat The Rich" as one of the better songs off this disc, but the band themselves blame that song for almost killing the album, sales-wise. It was the second single after "Livin' On The Edge," and was too hard for pop-40 radio to play at that time. So we rockers liked it, but the teenage girls and soccer moms who would come to be this band's bread and butter for new music didn't get it, and the album stalled. The three ballads and their videos are what saved it. "Fever" was also released as a single, after "Cryin'" and, again, didn't do anything except give Garth Brooks another rock song to butcher.
