Steven Tyler will be the first to admit that the world really didn’t need yet another Aerosmith Greatest Hits album. However, if you fancy one, “O Yeah! Ultimate Aerosmith Hits” is the one to get, as it’s the only one to accurately cover their entire career (including both record labels).  

The songs are put basically in chronological order, so of course Disc 2 pales in comparison to Disc 1. Early Aerosmith was Aerosmith at it’s best, so Disc 1 is a great reminder of how great this band actually was. Disc 2 is well, sappy power ballad central.

However, it would be unfair to criticize Aerosmith’s career, as this disc’s task is to point out their career highlights, and it does so wonderfully. It’s hard to imagine rather obscure songs like “Seasons of Wither” or “Draw The Line” being more popular than “Train Kept A Rollin,” “Back In The Saddle,” or “Lord of the Thighs” (none of which are included), but that’s a minor nitpick. Also, having the radio remix of “Just Push Play” will please Aerosmith collectors, however it of course pales in comparison to the uncensored original. 

Disc 2 does contain a couple of new studio tracks, “Girls of Summer” and “Lay It Down.” “Girls of Summer” sounds more like a Rod Stewart cover of “Some Guys Have All The Luck,” while “Lay It Down” is yet another safe radio friendly power ballad. Of course the label is going to try to get new tracks on there to get the fans excited, but down the road, I would have rather had tracks like “F.I.N.E.” or “Eat The Rich” take it’s place.  

With Aerosmith’s rich career, it’s simply impossible to give every fan each song they love with only two discs. So with so many Aerosmith Best Of’s are on the market, “O Yea! Ultimate Aerosmith Hits” is by far the best Aerosmith collection you can get... Well, until “OOOOH Baby! Ultimate Ultimate Aerosmith” comes out.
