The one question the band should now be asking: "Are we starting to sound tired yet?" HELL YES!!!

From: Glam Rocker Date: September 18, 2001 at 21:35
Take a look: 55 ratings and a stupid 5,37! This is far the best Aerosmith album!!! Child is the master: Hole In My Soul and Ain't That a Bitch! Sing that, stupid non-glam-blooded people: ther's an asshole in my soul that will kill me forever...

From: Yeah Date: September 29, 2001 at 13:12
Kiss Your Past Good-bye!!!! Great Sleazy song!!! The best Aerosmith album; I agree with Glam Rocker! A kind of sleaze glam album!! Perfect!

From: SHAG Date: October 23, 2001 at 6:52
These guys are cashing in with the women!!!!!!! These songs are as cheesy as it gets!!! These songs don't rock!!!! These songs were not written by Aerosmith, they were written by some lonely woman who longs for the love of her life!!!! Velveeta rock!!!!!!!

From: Desmond Child Date: December 11, 2001 at 18:15
These songs rock the world! Yeah, Shag... these songs were not written by Aerosmith... they were written by Aerosmith, by Desmond Child and by the uplifting poser spirit inside all of them! Perfect album! Thes best Aerosmith moment!

From: thunderkiss Date: March 4, 2002 at 8:32
The worst aerosimth, ever, they forget how to rock, this is only music for mtv.

From: M. Allen Date: April 5, 2002 at 7:36
From the rock band that refuses to die (though the atrocious "Just Push Play" could spell their demise) comes the best album of their lengthy career. Sure, it's got the usual radio-friendly tunes like "Falling in Love" and "Pink," but it's also got ballsy hard rockers like "Something's Gotta Give" and the vastly-underappreciated "Attitude Adjustment." Other AEROSMITH releases have had a few good songs, but "Nine Lives" has a whole bunch of them. Definitely worth picking up.

From: Desslar Date: April 8, 2002 at 1:50
A collection of pretty strong songs, but it doesn't really sound like Aerosmith anymore. A little on the soft side, but miles above what will follow.

From: Date: May 31, 2002 at 14:07
At the moment : 6.76 out of 10. (95 ratings). IT's A SHAME!!!!!!!!!! This album is one of their strongest effort to date. ANd they are all 50!!!! Great great great 10/10

From: samolice Date: May 31, 2002 at 14:07
just note that the european cover of the album is differetn from this one. Not better but different

From: Kane Roberts Date: June 6, 2002 at 18:57
Best Aerosmith album ever!!! No doubt! By the way, the only Aerosmith album that is awesome from the beggining to the end (except by the horrible songs Something's Gotta Give and Attitude Adjustment)! Perfect: 10/10!!!!!

From: MR??? Date: July 13, 2002 at 14:43

From: Nift Date: September 6, 2002 at 22:37
like i've said before at least one killer track and this one has gotta be Nine Lives...the rest just about sucks

From: Axelinger Date: October 30, 2002 at 2:09
In case anyone is unsure of what Desmond Child looks like, go to your local supermarket and check out the industrial-size jar of Cheez Whiz -- they must be Siamese twins separated at birth...

From: J Scott Date: November 10, 2002 at 7:37
This thing blows. Oone listen to "Taste of India" and it makes me want to barf. This is total crap from such an awesome band. This thing doesn't even deserve a rating. Only thing this is good for is a coaster or a dart board.

From: robert Date: November 10, 2002 at 8:59
Un disco mas q correctio si lo comparamos con obras d arte anteriores.. me quedo con TASTE OF INDIA. eSO si no os perdais el directo d esta super-banda: STEVEN TYLER se sale, vaya showman!!! Amo a los Aeroperez!! jjj

From: Rocky balboa Date: January 1, 2003 at 17:06
yooooooooo I use to like these guys but they now are beginnig to look like disco boys.

From: keebler Date: October 4, 2003 at 14:48
i know most people don't care for this one but i got into it.

From: Aero Force Mike Date: November 1, 2003 at 15:06
Heinous, most heinous. Really long, really boring, really 'un-fun' and its the album where they really began to stop sounding like Aerosmith. It's one I own out of completion, but frankly if i wasn't the Aerosmith-nut I am, i'd rather not have heard this. The title track, Attitude Adjustment and Something's Gotta Give are the only tracks even recalling who this band is... but they're still not worth the price of admission. One day hopefully Aerosmith will come back to us... I hope.

From: Hello Date: March 7, 2004 at 1:59
Aerosmith Rocks!!!

From: charvel man Date: May 15, 2004 at 18:00
Granted I don't listen to this much, but it's a good record. I like nine lives, taste of India and pink. Aerosmith doesn't sound like they used to, but I guess that's the way it is. I'd say pick it up if you consider yourself an Aerosmith fan.

From: Big Papa K Date: July 13, 2004 at 17:34
This is much better than "Get A Grip", but still no classic. The ballads have improved, and tracks such as "Nine Lives", "The Farm", and "Crash" show that they can still rock. "Pink" is just a terrible joke of a song though. 7/10

From: jack Date: August 9, 2004 at 5:13
Pink is one of the worst songs i've ever heard. its basically as crap as grunge. Hole in my soul is a bit better but still is crap. Don't get me wrong,i'm a big fan of aerosmith but i think just like bon jovi,the 90's ruined them. But i'm glad like bon jovi, they have never really jump to the grunge wagon or try to produce them. Nevertheless, this album is one album that is worth money if you are a die-hard fan.

From: joey nelson Date: September 20, 2004 at 17:42
its amazing how many people bitch about something, especially when they just happened to go to the particular something they are bitching about for the entertainment of their selfish, uncomprimising, unapprieciative fat fucking faces. if you could do better why do you people still go to the greatest!!!!!!!!?

From: Nick Clarkson Date: October 21, 2004 at 14:30
A fierce Aerosmith album ... slimmed down sound from the flabby mess that was Get a Grip (ballads we be). Some classics on here and if the band did an album full of songs like Crash they'd have the world at their feet again!

From: Propane Date: December 2, 2004 at 13:11
Totally flat. So flat, as a matter of fact, it plays handball against the curb. Everytime I hear of a new one coming out by these dudes I keep holding out hope. Unfortunately, They seem to have gone the way of a few others; Follow the money, forget which fans got you there originally.

From: headbanger4life Date: July 18, 2007 at 5:09
This was the last album that I eventually picked up for a cheap price. Haven't picked up anything else by them since then. There's a few ok songs on here but I don't have any personal favs.

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: September 30, 2007 at 14:25
Buenisimo disco, a mi en lo particular me agrada mucho. Quizá un tanto comercialón o tendiente al Pop (esa "Pink" es tan alegre jeje), pero aqui tenemos todavía temas contundentes como la rockanrolera y stoniana "Nine Lives", la festiva "Fallin´ In Love", "Somethin´Is Gonna Give" y claro baladas como "Ain´t That A Bitch" y la increible power ballad "Hole In My Soul", una balada desgarradora y plena de feeling y melodía... en su día la llegué a poner tanto(aah la adolescencia jeje)

From: hair metal again Date: May 21, 2010 at 3:32
outstanding release by legendary AEROSMITH,going one step further than "get a grip".all the basic elements are here again from the rockers to the ballads.great sound by kevin shirley,valuable help by wizard desmond child and you got an amazing selection of songs.important release

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: January 17, 2011 at 14:12
Yuck! I've read where this was a pretty tough album to make for the band,and it shows. Tyler sounds tired, and the songs just do nothing for me. "Falling In Love" and "Pink" are just idiotic, "Hole In My Soul" is a dreadful, hookless, shriekfest of a ballad. "Taste of India" is okay, for this release, but wouldn't have made the cut on Pump or Permanent Vacation (might have on Get A Grip). And those were the radio singles. The rest ain't no better. I seem to recall there being one song that rocked respectably without being goofy and dumb, but as it's been well over a decade since I last listened to this turd of a CD, I can't remember which it was. "The Farm," maybe?

From: 123charpenay Date: November 28, 2011 at 13:02
i think that "toys in the attic" is a real masterpiece.nevertheless i never was a big fan of aerosmith even if i recognize that this band is a legend.nine lives is for die hard fans of steven tyler and his friends.some thing gotta gave track 6 is the best song of this record with track 2 and 1.the rest is typical aerosmith music.not my cup of tea.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 8, 2013 at 16:13
Obviously this is an album done for the masses,so,it has those catchy nice commercial rocking tracks to assure money to the band and to sell out concerts(is a very personal opinion and i'm not discrediting the band itself,the guys are very clear in what they want to do in the business)...3 hit singles came out of this release "Falling In Love(Is Hard On The Knees)","Hole In My Soul" & "Pink" that buys the album itself then some other goodies are tracks 1,4,7,9,13 & 14...in general lines if you are into all this commercial Aero's stuff,then this one's for ya...89/100
