  • Get Your Wings is such a killer masterpiece, of all the Aerosmith albums out there, this is my #1 favorite cause Steven Tyler’s voice is improving and they were starting to sound like themselves, I mean their debut was good but this is even better,’Same Old Song and Dance’ is a radio staple and it has a killer classic groove and the horn section of the Brecker brothers. ‘Lord of the Thighs’ is one of Aerosmith’s most humorous songs of all time and they got the title from the novelty Lord of the Flies. ‘Spaced’ which has a spooky intro and it is one of Aerosmith’s underrated gems. ‘Woman of the World’ the intro sounds like ‘Lord of the Thighs’ another killer tune. S.O.S. (Too Bad) a live staple which has a sing along chorus. ‘Train Kept A Rollin’ which was originally written way back from 1951 and it was done by numerous bands but Aerosmith got this one from The Yardbirds (w/ Jeff Beck on guitar). ‘Seasons of Wither’ is one of Aerosmith’s best ballads (even Joe Perry admits that all of the ballads they’ve done, it was the only one he cared for, and it’s even better than their 1990’s ballads) and it should’ve been on the original Greatest Hits CD. And for the closing track, ‘Pandora’s Box’ is the first song that drummer Joey Kramer wrote (he also wrote the classic ‘Kings and Queens’ from the Draw the Line album).If you’re a classic Aerosmith fan and want to own an album, get this album, while not as successful as Toys in the Attic and Rocks but this album goes to show you that Aerosmith can rock.Plus one thing that I didn’t tell you was that this album marked the debut of producer Jack Douglas, who produced Aerosmith from Get Your Wings to Rock in a Hard Place (with the exception of 1979’s Night in the Ruts).
