It seems Aerosmith get heavier as they get older...not in weight this time though. The mix of slower songs and the louder ones is pretty much perfect. Its possably not the most original album in the world but it is fantastic. Tylers voice is astounding at times as we have come to expect, as is perrys guitar skills. This also gives you a look at some of the lesser known Asmith tracks which do not dissapoint.

Tyler simply has to be one of the best lyric writers alive or dead. From the almost heartwarming lines of 'Blind man' to the sillyness of 'Dude' all the songs are amazinly catchy, you'll find yourself singing them over all day. Again Tyler's voice is incredible and suit the moods of the songs perfectly.

A stunning 34 track compilation of the geffin years of Aerosmith. For the casual listener this should quickly become your favorite album on the rack. For Aerosmith fans you may be dissapointed with a few omitted songs but the dissapointment should soon pass. This along with Pandoras box will pretty much kit you up to the eye balls with Aerosmith. Stolen? Lost? No chance, it's glued into the cd player.
