  • By 1993, Aerosmith's comeback was in full swing, and GET A GRIP proves that, after soldiering on through drug problems and interpersonal tensions, the band wasn't about to let its new lease on life get away. Most of the material on GET A GRIP is a far cry from the band's celebrated '70s work, both structurally and in terms of production. But while the sound is a bit more panoramic, incorporating more keyboards and a grander, more pop-oriented approach, Steven Tyler and the boys have lost none of their fire here.
    Tyler's voice may have changed a bit over the years, but what he's lost in sheer lung power he's gained in character, and on the power ballad "Crazy" (one of the biggest hits of the band's career), he demonstrates the passionate poignancy he's capable of. While there are more pop-friendly tunes here than on some of their earlier albums, GET A GRIP does not lack for sheer rocking energy. Songs such as "Livin' on the Edge" are fuelled by Joe Perry's distinctive rock-god guitar work, and the Perry-Tyler songwriting team generates both musical sophistication and four-on-the-floor hard rock.

 Very good but not quite great.

This was the album Aerosmith released after the multi-million selling and brilliant Pump so there was understandably alot of anticipation for this one and it nearly lives up to it as well.There are some great tracks on here; Eat The Rich, Livin' on the Edge and Cryin' rank among the bands best songs but there are also a few songs that feel a bit filler-ish.Songs like Gotta Love It just seem a bit pointless with no real direction or,well,anything really.But the good songs make up for it as the three mentioned above,along with the title track, Shut up and Dance and Amazing all prove.A very good Aerosmith album then,just falling short of great.

In my opinion, you will find no greater Aerosmith album than this. I have listened to this CD over and over countless times, and I still keep listening, it doesn't get old. There are some sceptics of this album, mostly due to the fact that it followed after Aerosmith first achieved commercial success. But I, for one, could not recommend this CD more. Best tracks for me are: Eat The Rich, Livin' on The Edge, Crazy, and Fever.

A really good album but I agree a couple of the songs lack the Aerosmith drive. Better than Permanent Vacation though!!
