Aerosmith – Music From Another Dimension
Aerosmith in 2012? Well, for $2 at the thrift shop, why not.
Lots of cool rockers here, like the Stones riff of Oh Yeah, and the charging train of Street Jesus. Out Go The Lights is pure throwback cowbell Aero.
But the ballads, holy hell… I lost count of them, honestly, just waaay too many. I mean, I get it, those seem to be popular with people. But they all sound the same. So listen up, Aero boys, if you absolutely must have ballads on your record, just have one on there. Maybe two (tops). After that, it makes for a shitty listen.
I could cut this album to a solid nine or ten tracks from its bloated 15. I’d drop the boring Carrie Underwood duet and at least 4 of the ballads. Doesn’t matter which, just drop them.
