Just Push Play


“Hey,” I told myself, “‘Jaded’ is a good pop single. These guys are masters of their craft. Remember Toys in the Attic and Rocks? Those were good albums. Give Aerosmith a shot, there’ll be something besides the single that’s worthwhile on the album.”

I was wrong.

Avoid this at all costs. Man, I can’t even begin to convey its vast and seemingly interminable suckiness. I should have known from the cover (the bazillionth appropriation of the female robot from Metropolis • it should be illegal for art directors to ever accept anything based on this design ever again) that this would be crap. Jeez, they even try to rap. Need I say more? See what being an optimist gets you? Bleccchhh.
