It's all downhill after this one.

From: Bisho Date: July 31, 2001 at 11:18
This put AEROSMITH back on the map. Their best and most solid album since ROCKS! The boys even sound like they enjoyed making this one. VOODOO is simply brilliant! Unfortunately this would be their last GREAT album. 10/10

From: joe Date: December 14, 2001 at 2:14
I agree, Aerosmiths last great album. Some good stuff to come but this is the one Aerosmith album you should have.

From: mallorca Date: December 15, 2001 at 16:10
es el mejor album de los smith lo recomiendo. ni los anteriores ni los siguientes estan a la altura de esta joya del hard americano

From: Harvey Date: January 1, 2002 at 8:56
Phew! I thought I was the only one who noticed that Aerosmith turned to shit after Pump. Glad to see I'm not going mad.

From: Rockforever Date: June 27, 2002 at 9:14
Harvey is wrong to say Aero went shit after this (Get a Grip and 9 lives were good),but this is the last album to fit the 'classic' category.Young Lust is a kickass opener;F.I.N.E, Monkley on my Back,The other side, and Voodoo are all great rockers;Janies Got a Gun is 1 of the bands most reflective tunes;Love in an Elevator is one of their best songs EVER (with some killer soloing from Joe Perry);while What it takes closes Pump in epic style. This was one of,if not the best release of 1989.

From: SleazyMusic Date: July 30, 2002 at 6:03
Oh no, harvey...you're not wrong...I feel the same..Pump is the last true Aerorecord....every song is a classic...motherfuckin' coooool....

From: robert Date: October 21, 2002 at 9:10
quiza mi favorito de ellos, son unaos autenticos maestros! los e visto 3 veces y doy fe q steven tyler y compañia son unos verdaderos monstruos, sobre todo el showman steve. un grupo super bueno!!igual q este disco

From: Baris Date: November 28, 2002 at 4:31
I extremely agree that this is their last great effort. The real Aerosmith before they become pop-stars.

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: January 16, 2003 at 19:18
Antes de nada remarcar que el tipo de música que hacen Aerosmith no es precisamnete el que mas me gusta.Pero tengo que admitir que este tiene muy buenos temas como Young Lost,Janie's Got A Gun o la gran balada What It Takes entre otros temas.Un disco muy compacto,que los que gusten del rock mas festivalero y directo disfrutaran con el.BUEN DISCO.

From: Great Dane Date: January 16, 2003 at 19:39
How come you dont write in ENGLISH. I would really like to read your reviews, but understand NOTHING. English is the main language here. Imagine everybody speaking in their native tongue. Try this........ Jeg synes at alle spansktalende er en flok boesserove.

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: January 17, 2003 at 10:16
Amigo Great Dane,no te creas que me molestan tus palabras,si no utilizo el inglés es por que no se expresarme en inglés(lo entiendo bastante pero me resulta dificil escribirlo),ni mas ni menos.Yo creo que cada cual se puede expresar en el lenguaje que le de la gana,y si no lo entiendes tienes dos opciones:te compras un diccionario,o no leas el comentario,asi de facil.Yo por lo menos es lo que hago solo leo los comentarios en inglés y en español,cuando he visto por ahi en alemán,griego,etc.

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: January 17, 2003 at 10:23
Y ¿te crees que me molesta?Pues no,siempre habrá alguna persona que te entienda.Es mas en mi caso somos mas de 400.000.000 millones de hispano parlantes,por lo tanto creo que aunque haya gente que no entienda el español(castellano),hay otra mucha que si.Asi que amigo no seas tan comodón,y si lo quieres seguir siendo lee otros mensajes que estan en inglés que hay cientos.Un saludo.

From: vikingo666 Date: February 20, 2003 at 18:13
un verdadero clasico de la historia del rock,temazos buenisimos con mala hostia el mejor disco desde el rocks.No hagais caso a ese great dane se ve que es un discipulo de ted nugent y con esa gente no se puede entender nunca

From: steve age 17 Date: February 21, 2003 at 18:33
love this album i got it good tunes

From: Sergio Date: March 17, 2003 at 15:08
The real great masterpiece by Aerosmith after the return of the original line-up: 'Permanent vacaion' is too commercial, but this record is simply perfect, from the opener 'Young lust2 until the closing ballad, 'What it takes'. Unfortunately, after this record the band can't repeat the miracle...

From: RichieRocker Date: March 17, 2003 at 18:10
Sergio Your so right man! I stopped listening to Aerosmith after this album. This album has a healthy and needed anecdote for the enthusiastic rocker. I feel like there way too poppy now. I hope they go back to there old roots.

From: Richierocker Date: April 15, 2003 at 2:45
Great instrument utilization, and catchy fret work from the Bad Boys of Boston. This album unfortunatly was the end for me with Aerosmith, I wish they could rock like this agian instead of coming out with music they had on Just Push Play.

From: keebler Date: October 4, 2003 at 14:43
great cd one of their best i agree i wish they would put more out like this.

From: robert Date: December 12, 2003 at 22:11
4º disco de la lista del 89' ESTE SI Q ES UNA OBRA MAESTRA!! ESTO ya huele a 1989' q año!! no me cansare d repetirlo. ACOJONANTE!!! ya hice el comentario d este pedazo d discazo, pa mi un 8'5 sobre 10 y con los años gana mas y mas...¿alguien puede dar mas? alucinante!!

From: Fat Freddy Date: January 5, 2004 at 16:57
For me, this is the last good Aerosmith album. I saw them twice on this tour and both shows were two of the finest rock concerts I have ever witnessed. Now you couldn't pay me to see them. Shame! Aerosmith may be dead to me now, but PUMP makes for one hell of a fine rockin' tombstone. .

From: Metal T Date: June 2, 2004 at 17:24
Dumb,Dumb,Dumb,honey what have you done?--Dumb,Dumb,Dumb,its the sound of my gun.----This is dog sh*t !--Who ever told Steven Tyler' he could sing or write songs ?--What is he a singer or a part-time transvestite ?---Aerosmith' are playing halftime at major sporting events,when they should be playing the state fair .By the way RATT'S version of 'Walkin' The Dog' blows theirs away.'Janie's Got A Gun','Janie's Got A Gun'---C'mon,give me a f**king break......

From: Big Papa K Date: July 13, 2004 at 17:31
The album that really divides Aerosmith fans. The old fans hate it while the newer fans think of it as a classic. So where does it exactly fall? Well, if you like the more pop-metal version of the band then it will fall in the later as they turn out another excellent collection of songs. The intro's are stupid and 'What It Takes' starts the trend of terrible ballads. But this is still a good album, but not one really for the fans of their 70's style. 8/10

From: jack Date: August 10, 2004 at 1:38
One of the best heavy metal album that i like. Love in an elevator is absolute pure rocking track while tracks like janie's got a gun and other side is good metallic songs. what it takes is also a fine ballad that started a little off like country music. ratings:8/10

From: Propane Date: December 2, 2004 at 12:34
Exit stage left for Aerosmith. Seems like they gave in to MTV, music industry. Too pop oriented.

From: gubi Date: January 19, 2005 at 16:59
Among with Appetite for Destruction, the best rock album of the eighties. Songs from 1-6 leave you breathless. Never happened not to jump in the room while listening this.

From: run2u Date: March 14, 2005 at 17:04
¿"El álbum que divide a los fans de Aerosmith"?¿Pero qué bobada es esa?Bueno sí,los divide entre los que tienen buen y mal gusto.PUMP es todo un clásico del rock,trabajo compacto,original y cañero(en el mejor sentido)donde los haya.Además no entiendo ciertas críticas porque me parece equilibradísimo,entre la frescura del rock'n'roll de siempre y los temas más elaborados,con mucho acierto.Janie's Got a Gun,Love In an Elevator,Young Lost o The Other Side...geniales. 9/10 run2u69@hotmail.com

From: Geoff Date: March 21, 2005 at 2:15
Still not and Aerosmith fan, but I guess this is a pretty cool hard rock disc. I like 'Love in an elevator' and 'Janie's got a gun'... so call me a pop fiend, but to me they were the best. For me this isn't really a very good disc, and very patchy... but it's okay.

From: Andrew Date: June 28, 2005 at 18:04
"F.I.N.E", "Love In An Elevator", "Janie's Got A Gun", "The Other Side", and "Young Lust" are all classics. Their last quality record before beginning to sell out. 9.5/10

From: ghettonation73 Date: March 29, 2006 at 22:58

From: juan carlos Date: July 6, 2007 at 11:09
Para mí tampoco cabe la menor duda, "Pump" es el mejor disco que he escuchado de Aerosmith que al igual que otros no es de mis favoritos ni mucho menos pero he oído muchos de sus discos(tenía amigos fanáticos que tenían casi todos sus discos) y no se igualan a éste. Del "Permanent Vacation" me gustaban 2 0 3 temas, del "Get A Grip" 1 o 2(por cierto ninguna de sus hartamente escuchadas en las radios) y algunos más de sus otros discos pero nada como el "Pump" aunque no un clásico para mí. 8.8/10

From: headbanger4life Date: July 18, 2007 at 4:56
This one wasn't bad. I agree that a lot of the older fans didn't care for this one. I liked 'Love In An Elevator', 'Janie's Got A Gun', 'The Other Side', and 'What It Takes'. They really started changing there sound to fit in with the more mainstream crowd. It was still some pretty decent hard rock.

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: September 30, 2007 at 14:07
La cumbre de AEROSMITH. Si "Permanent Vacation" mostraba que los de Boston volvían por sus fueros, con este disco simplemente se elevaron a las estrellas. Este es el tipo de discos básicos del Hard Rock (al lado del "Psychotic Supper de TESLA) debido a la diversidad y versatilidad transitando alegremente por el Hard, el Boogie, el Pop por momentos, Blues, algo de Country y otras sorpresitas mas. Temazos como "Young Lust"(pura fiesta) y "The Other Side" están cargados de puro Rock and Roll...

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: September 30, 2007 at 14:12
imposible mantenerse sereno con el exitaso "Love In The Elevator"; Con "My Girl" hasta dan ganas de bailar con ese ritmo Country; el boogie "Don´t Get Mad, Get Even", la comercial y espectacular "Janie´s Got A Gun" (brillante composición) y por último la super balada "What It Takes", plena de sentimiento y melodía... ésas son las baladas clásicas de AEROSMITH, no los bodrios que hicieron después, en fin... este disco es un clásico y uno de los mejores discos de Hard Rock de todos los tiempos

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 22, 2008 at 12:16
Saw them live on this "Pump" tour...1989 the year...they rocked out that night!!!...Quireboys the support act...such memories...for me one of the best (yet perhaps too comercial but kicked butts anyway) album done by the so called "toxic twins" & C.o.90/100

From: pie75 Date: March 18, 2009 at 7:44
man this is a top album from start to finish one of the great 80's albums and still sounds fresh today i love young lust and the sleazy love in an elevaator sadly they would never make a good album again but this always gets a spin

From: hair metal again Date: June 1, 2010 at 2:47
amazing hair metal release by the legendary AEROSMITH.everybody jumped into the train that we call "hair metal" back then and released so many and high quality releases.there was an explosion of hard rock music with big and expensive productions,big arenas and huge media support."pump" is one of those releases and i think that is a masterpiece.what i want to say is that we not only listen to aerosmith in this ,but we listen to aerosmith in the hair metal era.simply outstanding

From: edwithmj Date: January 17, 2011 at 13:46
Better than Permanent Vacation and a bit harder too. I'd say this is my favourite by them. Young Lust, F.I.N.E. and Love In An Elevator are excellent rockers; Monkey On My Back is forgettable; Janie's Got A Gun is a fairly decent ballad, but I find it lacking a decent hook; The Other Side is a great rocker with cathcy background vocals; My Girl isn't bad but could've been a lot better; Don't Get Mad, Get Even is lacklustre and Voodoo Medicine Man is so forgettable I can't remember how it goes and I've played this album a lot. The real gem is at the end of the album with What It Takes. This is a top-class ballad and is worth the price of the album alone. 93/100

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: January 17, 2011 at 14:05
This was actually my first Aerosmith album. Got it for Christmas in '89, when I was in fourth grade. No shit. Anyway, the first three tracks are great, even if the whole idea behind "Love In An Elevator" is pretty stupid if you. I loved "Janie's Got A Gun" at the time, but, like "Dude," it hasn't held up well. Pump tends to get a lot of flak for the horns, but I thought they added a really cool flavor to "The Other Side," which is a great song anyway (anybody remember the remix?). Also really liked "Voodoo Medicine Man," although it obviously isn't radio-single material. "Don't Get Mad" is more of their phony-baloney "look how bluesy we are" crap. "What It Takes?" Loved it at the time, but 20 years later, I think I've heard it enough times now. All I can say about "My Girl" is that I once put it on a mix-tape for a chick because I was trying to keep it as uptempo and rocking as possible.

From: Ydol eM Date: May 17, 2013 at 15:00
This album has a good structure of various songs which make a solid piece of good-quality hard rock together. Similar to any of Tesla's album, so a little bluesy, sometimes with southern rock elements. 85/100.
