Aerosmith - Devils got a New Disguise Review

by Zane Ewton

Aerosmith have teamed up with Motley Crue for a little tour this winter. What better time to repackage your hits for, depending on how you count, at least the thirteenth time.

As usual, a new track or two is the bait to get all of those Aerosmith fans to shell out cash for 15 songs they already have, and one they don't.

A few of the Aerosmith hits packages have been incredible values. 1980's Greatest Hits was the perfect snapshot of Aerosmith in the 1970's despite missing a few of the greasy gems that made an album like Rocks so great.

Big Ones nailed the highlights of Aerosmith's comeback through Permanent Vacation, Pump and Get a Grip. It's arguable if Aerosmith has done anything on par with those albums since then. That argument obviously leans toward the atrociously forgettable Just Push Play.

Since then compilations have come and gone that have brought together each phase of the band's career. At this point, another repackage is completely unnecessary. Devils Got a New Disguise is specifically unnecessary.

Only 5 tracks represent Aerosmith in the 1970's, and it is the same five songs you will hear everyday on your local classic rock radio station.

The rest is dedicated to Aerosmith late 80's comeback, leading up to the worst song ever, "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing".

The two new tracks include a forgettable ballad, "Sedona Sunrise" and the title track which is actually a fun ride that would have fit perfectly on Permanent Vacation.

It's frustrating to watch Aerosmith do the most un-rock and roll events and continue to move farther away from the ragged, rowdy and undeniably great rock band they used to be.

Honkin' on Bobo was a step in the right direction, but the new tracks here really only offer more of the same.
