iTunes Review

Marking Aerosmith’s return to Columbia after a phenomenal three-album run for Geffen, Nine Lives again proves the band’s taste for reinvention. David Shirley assumes the producer’s chair formerly occupied by Bruce Fairbairn, and he, along with songwriters Glen Ballard (Alanis Morrissette, Goo Goo Dolls, No Doubt) and Marti Frederiksen (Sheryl Crow, P!nk), helps guide the album towards the hard and heavy sounds of modern alternative rock. “Nine Lives,” “Something’s Gotta Give,” “The Farm,” and “Crash” bear the influence of Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam and Stone Temple Pilots more than the Rolling Stones and the Yardbirds, Aerosmith’s old standbys. The album was originally titled Vindaloo and featured Hindu-derived cover art, but the Indian theme survives mostly in the form of the hard rock raga of “Taste of India.” Despite the band’s newfound alt-rock riff mongering, “Ain’t That a Bitch,” “Hole In My Soul” and “Kiss Your Past Good-bye” are three of the band’s gutsiest ballads to date. And even as “Pink” delves into a new groove, “Falling In Love (Is Hard On the Knees)” reiterates everything we love about the old Aerosmith.

Underated 5 star album!

Come on people this is aerosmith! this is album is outstanding i gave it a listen and i have to say it's quite a heavy riff albums. You got hidden gems such as taste of india. That track alone is quite a song. Just give it a try and you won't be disappointed by this album. And for god sake's a band cannot go through their career composing the same thing all over again.

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...
