AERO­SMITH

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - MUSIC - Cameron Adams

AF­TER the soap opera over whether Aero­smith would re­place Steven Tyler while he was busy with Amer­i­can Idol, the band fi­nally re­leases its first orig­i­nal stu­dio al­bum since 2001. The old dogs have no need for new tricks in their 60s. There’s rib­ald rock ( Luv XXX), blues rock ( Oh Yeah ), hip­pie rock ( Tell Me) and a nod to Walk This Way on Leg­endary Child. They duet with Carrie Un­der­wood for the coun­try mar­ket on Can’t Stop Lov­ing You and get an­other wet Diane War­ren bal­lad with We All Fall Down, to tap back into the I Don’t Want To Miss a Thing fan­base. And lis­ten for Johnny Depp singing on Free­dom Fighter – be­cause he can. Sounds like: anger man­age­ment works. In a word: fa­mil­iar.
