iTunes Review

20th Century Masters spans Aerosmith’s second golden age, 1987 to 1994. This compact collection presents in chronological order the 12 Top 40 hits that reintroduced this ‘70s hard-rock institution to a new generation of fans. Drawn from the band’s three Geffen albums —Permanent Vacation, Pump, and Get a Grip — the songs on this compilation owe a lot to Bruce Fairbairn, the Canadian producer who guided Aerosmith’s comeback success. With songs like “Dude (Looks Like a Lady)” and “Love In an Elevator,” Fairbairn introduced a new accessibility into the Aerosmith sound without sacrificing the signature swagger of their ‘70s heyday. Equally notable is the presence of Desmond Child, who co-wrote “Angel,” “What It Takes,” and “Crazy,” songs that made Aerosmith the foremost purveyors of the power ballad in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. The new Aerosmith and the old Aerosmith converge perfectly on “Cryin’,” a song that blends the glorious swagger of classic Stones with the commercial sheen of ‘90s radio rock.

Aerosmith were one of the most popular hard rock bands of the '70s, setting the style and sound of hard rock and heavy metal for the next two decades with their raunchy, bluesy swagger. The Boston-based quintet found the middle ground between the menace of the Rolling Stones and the campy, sleazy flamboyance of the New York Dolls, developing a lean, dirty riff-oriented boogie that was loose and swinging and as hard as a diamond. In the meantime, they developed a prototype for power ballads with...
