Two years after a particularly inspired "Permanent Vacation" (1987), which marked Aerosmith's return to the pantheon of US hard rock, the Boston gang serves us a real cluster bomb. Once again, Tyler & Co. put all their efforts with Bruce Fairbairn on the production, Mike Fraser at the controls and Jim Vallance and Desmond Child who help with the compositions. And the result is up to expectations thanks to a liberated creativity that offers us a dynamic, refined and irresistible album.

Indeed, even if we often tend to reduce Aerosmith to its explosive couple Tyler / Perry, this album reminds us that it is indeed a quintet. The rhythm section is unleashed here and the adventurous grooves of the discreet Hamilton compete with the fiery playing of Joey Kramer. Each title benefits from particular attentions, as well on the level of the sound packaging as of the approached topics, most often with humour. The intro of 'Love In An Elevator', 'The Other Side' or 'Voodoo Medicine Man' are the perfect demonstrations, as well as the destructive sequence between 'Young Lus' and 'F.I.N.E.' or the very rock'n'roll 'My Girl'.

'Janie's Got A Gun' and its convoluted structure, the inevitable blues 'Don't Get Mad, Get Even' and the superb ballad 'What It Takes' are the only moments allowing to catch one's breath. Back from the hell of addiction, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry share with us a newfound and communicative joy of living through these 10 irresistible tracks (11 if we count the country-folk delirium hidden at the end of the album) for an intense pleasure bordering on perfection. Indeed, it is difficult, even impossible, to find a track among the different pearls which compose this album and to press the stop button is a superhuman effort once the album is launched.
