Released: 2005, Universal Music
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: Lord of the Wasteland

The hits just keep on coming with this label compilation focusing on legendary Beantown rockers, Aerosmith. Fans seeking tracks from the 1970’s heyday of ROCKS and TOYS IN THE ATTIC need look elsewhere as this package only looks at the band’s Geffen Records releases from 1985’s DONE WITH MIRRORS through 1998’s double live album, A LITTLE SOUTH OF SANITY. Granted, these are the tracks with the most commercial appeal but at the same time, most have been played TO DEATH on radio and MTV over the years. Universal has thrown in a few unreleased tracks (most should have stayed that way), soundtrack cuts (pretty good version of The Doors’ “Love Me Two Times”) and live versions (Tyler’s vocals could have used some sprucing up on “Dream On” but the hearing him sing “Falling In Love Is Hard On Your Knees” showcase his brilliance as a lyricist) to make the package more alluring to those who already own “the big three” of PERMANENT VACATION, PUMP and GET A GRIP but the price tag of around $12 for 34 mostly-killer tracks all in one place shouldn’t be too tough of a sell.

**Bonus points for putting the underrated “My Fist Your Face” on here!
