Well probably just orange juice these days, but whatever brand it is I want some! The album kicks off with an intro and then scoots along into Eat the Rich, a fast paced rocker laced with humour.
Fever follows up and has a slower vocal delivery and a musical form with a bit more of a slouch, if you get my meaning. A low slung feel that you know the boys in ZZ Top would probably approve of. Livin' On the Edge, the flagship single off the album is a slower paced number to much of what has gone before and is certainly one of the most mature songs on the album lyrically.
Flesh is in many ways a repeat of the formula of Fever in that both have a ridiculously bouncy Aerosmith delivery and neither are particularly deep in the lyrical department! Walk on Down is a fairly bluesy number and the band can probably write a song like this in around ten minutes. Not a standout but very much in keeping with the rest of the album as is Shut Up and Dance where that Aerosmith swingability comes into full force in the same way David Lee Roth can create a swingin' good time vibe out of thin air.
As the album moves into it's latter phases there is a bit of a dip in quality, the ballad Cryin being about as good as any other latter day Aerosmith ballad, just how necessary another one of them is being up to your personal tastes. But whatever it's merits, it does mark a point in the album after which the tunes are a touch less memorable. Gotta Love It and breezes along but just feels a touch too similar to what has gone before to my mind but others may really love it.
Crazy is anything but, almost like the band only had enough energy left in their bones to power a certain number of upbeat tunes which is weird as Line Up definitely has a honky tonk feel. One can see how Honkin On Bobo came outta these guys.
The final trilogy of tunes in the form of Can't Stop Messin, Amazing and Boogie Man are fairly anonymous slices of blues inflected party numbers. But by this point in the album chances are everybody is too drunk to care. A really good album I wholeheartedly recommend, hey, I'm a fan - which is why I bought the limited edition cowhide cover.
It was certainly a talking point when the album came out as was the ring that looked like it had been put through a cows udder on the booklet cover art, the band being very quick to point out nobody actually went out and pierced a cows udder for the photograph.
Pick this up, it's cheap enough, and you'll have yourself a party rocker of an album for your collection. Intro Eat The Rich Get A Grip Fever Livin' On The Edge Too few sweet-talking sassafrassies from Tallahassee rear their tousled heads.
Motor-mouth verbal inventiveness is replaced by a decidedly calmer, more inspiring tone. Call in the song doctors, from the infamous Desmond Child on down, and you get what you pay for: greeting-card hokum and lowest-common-denominator hooks. This caterwauling power ballad could be a hit, but it could also nail the coffin shut on that decaying commercial genre.
Tyler at least deserves better lines than Michael Bolton. Maybe Get a Grip will serve as musical therapy for Aerosmith.
