What do you get when you mix Aerosmith with the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas? Well, among other things, one of the best live albums of the year. The veteran rockers light it up on Rockin' The Joint, which was actually recorded in 2002 when they were promoting their studio album Just Push Play. The boys perform two tracks from that album here while also loading up on lots of their '70s gold. It's just a great old time in the Aerosmith tradition and they sound tight, tight, tight.
The opener, "Beyond Beautiful," (from Just Push Play) is an unusual choice to kickstart the show, being a slower, leaden, riff rocker. But like a Las Vegas tease, the intent is to start a slow burn and then let things explode into a full-blown conflagration. Enter the sassy, swingin' "Same Old Song and Dance" (from 1974's Get Your Wings). It gets the joint jumping with its up-tempo boogie and Steven Tyler cheekiness. The axes of Joe Perry and Brad Whitford knot together perfectly and totally kick out the jams: a definite highlight of the set.
It's so great to hear the guys reach for their Toys In The Attic on three different occasions. Being the album that defined the band, it should always feature heavily in their live shows and the band knows that. Here, they offer up the boogie-bent rocker "No More No More," their twitchy comeback song "Walk This Way" (remember when they re-recorded it with Run-D.M.C.?), and the fabulous double-entendre speedster "Big Ten Inch Record." Ah yes, it's what rock and roll is all about.
The Boston lads slow things down in a couple of places: once for the romantic electric ballad "Light Inside" (also from Just Push Play) and then again for the classic "Don't Want To Miss A Thing." The latter is without a doubt the most beautiful song the band has ever recorded and it loses nothing live. In fact, it's a bonus to hear it re-worked for a concert situation. The chorus makes it as moving as any power ballad of the past decade. This was the theme song for the 1998 blockbuster film Armageddon in which Steven Tyler's daughter Liv co-starred.
The set is rounded out with four other beauties. The ebb-and-flow rocker "Seasons of Whither" (Get Your Wings), the runaway riffster "Draw the Line" (from the album of the same name), the tough electric-blues adaptation of "Rattlesnake Shake" (from the box set Pandora's Box), and last but certainly not least, the locomotive "Train Kept A Rollin'" (Get Your Wings). Joe really cuts loose on this last selection.
Rockin' The Joint is killer stuff: top-drawer party rock and roll and one of the year's best rock albums. But would you expect anything less from these winged wonders?
