Existing comments about this CD

Didn't Gary Moore go this route like about 14 years ago? Maybe Tyler and the boys aren't allowed to play with Britney, N Stync, etc. anymore, so they think the Clapton's, B.B. King's, Albert Collins', etc. will welcome them with open arms into the blues genre... Yeah, sure... Honkin' On Bozo is more like it for these over-the-hill clowns...

From: Axelinger Date: April 16, 2004 at 3:26
Uh, provided Albert Collins didn't die in '93, that is...

From: holyroller Date: April 16, 2004 at 7:09
Whatever, this is the best album Aerosmith have been involved with since Pump. Blues covers or not, this is how the band are supposed to sound.

From: Scott Date: April 16, 2004 at 11:07
'Didn't Gary Moore go this route like about 14 years ago?' NO! Gary Moore started playing traditional blues sounding like the hordes of other aging blues musicians. Aerosmith are still rocking hard. Sure these are covers of old blues standards, but they are done in a hard rocking Aerosmith style, something Aerosmith has excelled at since the 70's. Remember Train Kept A Rollin, Rattlesnake Shake, Walking the Dog, etc. GREAT CD! Don't like it? Ahhh, go listen to your crappy Korn CDs.

From: Scott Date: April 16, 2004 at 11:08
by the way, whoever put the comment that this CD contains 'ALL blues covers' is wrong. 'The Grind' is an Aerosmith original.

From: Aero Force Mike Date: April 16, 2004 at 13:07
I dunno how some people seem to be so shocked and distressed over Aerosmith's 'blues' album. I mean not only has Aerosmith ALWAYS been bluesy, especially in the 70's, but hell even on 80s albums, the tracks like Hangman Jury, St John, Monkey on My Back, Voodoo Medicine Man etc. are all exactly like what's on this CD... only they're covers. It's the same old Aerosmith, just playing other peoples songs... it's good stuff, just play loud and rock out, no complaints here!

From: Rockhead Date: April 16, 2004 at 13:31
Have to totally agree with Aero Force on this one!! Aerosmith's greatest moments were the 70's blues infused albums. They have always covered great songs and this set rocks. My only complaint is covering Baby Please Don't Go-everyone and their dog has done this and it isnt as if there is a shortfall in classics. A fine album and 200 times better than Just Push (in the bin) Play.

From: Cruise Date: April 16, 2004 at 14:16
Best thing they've done in a long time. The band actually let loose for a change. Fans of the earlier albums will probably get a kick out of this. This isn't just blues, it's hard rockin' blues.

I'm not the biggest Aerosmith fan, but I must say that I'm enjoying this one immensely! Good, bluesy hard rock in the same vein as their early efforts. If you enjoy blues based hard rock, you should LOVE this one, 'cause Aerosmith have done an excellent job on these blues classics. Their best release in quite some time!

From: jason (FA-Q) Date: April 17, 2004 at 14:11
I can't believe all the hype that Aerosmith is getting for their version of 'Baby, Please Don't Go?' If you wan't to hear a GREAT cover of that song than listen to AC/DC's version on their album '74 Jailbreak.' It's the BEST EVER!

From: Blue Tequila Date: April 17, 2004 at 15:18
AC/DC's version is great...also check out John Mellencamp's version of 'Baby Please Don't Go' off the Blue Chips soundtrack--smokin'!

From: Tony Date: April 17, 2004 at 20:12
I really dig this album! It has that Aerosmith 'swagger' to it that was sorely needed after that atrocity 'Just Push Play' was unleashed on mankind. Perry really shines here and Tyler's voice sounds 'rock-n-roll' again. The guitar work on this disc is incredible and will have all the professional air-guitarist in seventh heaven. GREAT direction for these guys. My sole compalint is actually with the one original tune. How many times can you basically re-write 'Cryin'? Otherwise great!!

From: Dean Date: April 17, 2004 at 21:42
IMO- the best 'Smith album since Rocks. Mostly covers but who cares-this kicks ass.

From: Sahara Jack Date: April 18, 2004 at 8:22
''The Grind' is an Aerosmith original.' Yes...and...it's another ballad.

From: ThunderDan Date: April 18, 2004 at 17:22
Finally, an enjoyable Aerosmith CD. Regardless of what people are saying, I'd much rather listen to this than their previous 2 studio releases any day! I'm sure that's agreeable to most.

From: jason (FA-Q) Date: April 18, 2004 at 22:51
I heard that they were going to call this album, 'Honkin' On Homo's' but they thought that sounded too gay. HA!HA!HA!

From: Scott Date: April 19, 2004 at 12:45
ah ha ha! what are you like 12 years old? By the way the ultimate version of 'Baby, Please Don't Go' was recorded by Ted Nugent on his Double Live Gonzo album. AC/DC & Aerosmith's versiond rock as well. AEROSMITH RULES!l

From: AOR freaky Date: May 2, 2004 at 12:39
Just Push Play was crap, this is also crappy stuff ! No inspiration ? Covers ?! Blues ?! C'mon, where is the originality ? The real hardrock stuff ? Is it over and out with Aerosmith ? Think so !!!

From: he freaks me Date: May 3, 2004 at 12:43
LOL so said Freddy the wise (but freaky) man

From: a person Date: May 19, 2004 at 23:27

From: jack Date: August 11, 2004 at 5:27
Nonsense and crappy album. too much blues in it. Not recommended for fans of hard rock except if you are a die hard fan of aerosmith. Scorpion's unbreakable is much better than this one.

'Too much blues' - maybe that's because it is their blues album then!!!

From: Rycheage Date: August 15, 2004 at 18:02
A return to their roots of sorts, but I think I would've enjoyed this more if it would've been an album of originals with one cover, but alas this is what they released. They return to their blues inspired road with this all covers album. I don't hate it as much as 'Just Push (It Over The Edge Of The Mountain) Play' but I wish it was all originals. Not bad though.

From: Propane Date: December 2, 2004 at 13:23
They have lost their way never to return to reality, so they think they'll stay in lollipop land. This one is no better than the last studio. I'll keep being patient, because maybe these guys will fall off the wagon and produce something good.

From: Nick C Date: January 2, 2005 at 8:06
Aerosmith - since 1977 been my fave band (even to the extent of setting up a website to 'em) - But I can't find it in my heart to overly rave about this! Sure the sound is nice and gritty and bodes well for future releases and at least the songs are AEROcized - and have a level of energy that has been missing from recent releases, but I dunno something isn't clicking for me. It's not bad it's just not what I expected after hearing the pre release hype - not a return to the old style as predicted

From: razorsharp2467 Date: January 13, 2005 at 8:21
Man...........this cd is a VAST improvement over "Just Push Play"!!! Lets just hope this "return to roots" finds its way into the next batch of originals they release!! Or at the very least, inspire them to start writing their own songs again!!

From: CC Date: January 28, 2005 at 10:07
This one just didnt do anything for me,I found it very bland!

From: velez Date: December 1, 2005 at 14:57
esto seņores es puro, total y absoluto rock n' roll, por fin despues de tantos aņos aerosmith saca algo que valga la pena, no importa que sean covers la banda por fin se acordo que saben tocar.

From: jmikep Date: June 29, 2006 at 20:42
Yikes! I had high hopes for this one, but only ended up liking about 3 of the songs. So much for the rock band formerly known as Aerosmith.
