iTunes Review

Following Permanent Vacation and Pump, Get A Grip is the final installment in Aerosmith’s trilogy of multiplatinum, Bruce Fairbain-produced comeback albums. The album carried the group into the Nineties, and introduced them to a new generation of MTV viewers with the classic videos for “Cryin’” and “Crazy.” While the nasty strut of “Walk This Way” is replayed in “Get A Grip,” and the mammoth balladry of “Dream On” is reflected in “Livin’ On the Edge,” the band still sounds stronger and fresher than ever, even if they are still plying a well-worn blueprint. “Eat the Rich” starts like a slap across the face, while the strolling organ on “Amazing” calls up the group’s under-acknowledged Beatles influence. Fairbairn’s production gave the band a larger-than-life sound without subtracting their edge, and as always, the band excels at blending raw grit with tuneful hooks as on “Shut Up and Dance” and the Lenny Kravitz collaboration “Line Up.” In the end, though, Get A Grip is all about “Cryin’” and “Crazy,” two ballads as worn-in as old jeans, and as sinewy and sweet as the best of the Stones.

Could be better

I am a huge Aerosmith fan, but I think this is a weaker album. The hits are great songs but the rest of the album isn't that good, I think that they were losing their original quality and at thast point cared more about making a hit rather than the actual music itself. I don't hnow what happened here but the hard rockin energy of Pump definatley did not come with this album but It is still a really good album!

Classic album and part of my child hood

So I can be the 1st to write a review love this album my first time I heard them then I listen to dream on and sweet emotion and then I found out that that was them amazing has to be matf as song ever!!!!but whole album good!!!!

One of their greatest

The new stuff is just as good as the old stuff, in my opinion, and songs like Fever or Amazing prove that. Some of the other great songs are Eat The Rich, Flesh, Shut Up And Dance, Cryin', Crazy, and Gotta Love It. Wait a second... I basically just named every song off the album. I highly recommend getting this album.

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...
