  • After a terribly underrated debut album, Aerosmith manage to catch the attention of North America with this amazing masterpiece. While it’s always bad to judge a cd but it’s design cover, let’s just go ahead and do it. Here you have a black and white photograph of the band with a black background. Kinda different compared to their debut album with them all in color and with clouds around them. This album is definately black…very hard, raw, and gritty. Very heavy hard rock’n'roll here.This album was a huge success the year it was released. Today, this album is often sadly pushed away from ‘Toys In The Attic’ as well as ‘Rocks’. While I love both albums with my heart, this is what really started their rock ‘n’ roll story.The album starts off with ‘Same Old Song And Dance’ which has long been a concert favorite. But the magic doesn’t quite happen till you next head for ‘Lord of the thighs’. A strange yet great song. It sets the dark tone of the album. Next you get ‘Spaced’ and ‘Woman of the World’ which are probably the darkest Aerosmith songs i’ve ever listened to in my life. Next you have a short semi-fast paced ‘SOS (too bad)’ which helps to give out a little relief from the dark attitude. Finally you head for the Yardbird’s cover of ‘Train kept a rollin’ which is another huge concert favorite among fans and the band. Some great guitar solos in it. Next you come to another sweet and melodic favorite among fans, ‘Seasons of Wither’. Although supposed to be a ballad, it seems very much in-line with a dark tone to it. Still very beautiful and beats the hell out of ‘I don’t want to miss a thing (ugh). And then finally, we end with ‘Pandora’s Box’ which is accompanied by a nice saxophone with an RnB side to it. Overall, a great album. Probably one of the best done by them. If you’re new to Aerosmith, then i suggest listening to Toys In The Attic or Rocks and then appreciating the magic of Get Your Wings which comes to show you how they got big. I dunno about you, but i certainly got my wings. Go get your own today and soar high with Aerosmith!!!
