Fans of Aeromsmith may notice that the track listing on this album looks conspicuously like that of a greatest hits collection, “Young Lust: The Aerosmith Anthology,” released less than four years ago and now conveniently unavailable at a discounted price. Perhaps unaware that the lack of sales in the previously collection was most likely related to the release of yet another Aerosmith greatest hits album in 2002 by Columbia, Geffen Records has slapped a new cover and title on the 2001 anthology and rereleased it, presumably hoping to sucker a few fans into buying a new copy. Fortunately, it appears to be near the bottom of Amazon’s CD sales rankings as of this review (I only came across it because Amazon’s algorithms put it on the home page for me), and that is precisely where it should stay.
Oh, the actual musical content warrants four stars, by the way. But who really cares at this point?
