I've always loved Aerosmith. I got ridiculed in college because I thought they were better than Nirvana. (Hey, I can't help it if some of my classmates were idjits! )
The reason I bring this up, since I'm sure everyone already knows this fact, is that I was listening to O Yeah! Ultimate Aerosmith Hits today. I got this one for the two new songs and a couple of remixes I didn't have already, and I normally don't listen to it. I have almost everything they've ever released, and usually it's tough for me to listen to, for example, "Seasons of Wither" without hearing the entire Get Your Wings album.
But dayum! This is as incomplete as any 2-disc career* retrospective must be, but a worthy effort. It's been said that they're the greatest American rock band, and this is a definite argument in favor of that claim.
Even the tracks from Get a Grip that were in serious danger of being played out for a few years ("Crazy" and "Amazing") are pure gold.
Who's with me in proclaiming Aerosmith to be the bomb-diggity shizzy? (I know Caesar is! )
