I'm not sure if this is the band or the record label doing this, but Aerosmith has put out yet another album of their hits. (amazon.com)

This makes almost ten "hits" albums over the years. I know they've been around over thirty years, but that's a lot for any band. Plus a box set and multiple live albums.

I'd rather have them jam out some new material that sounds raw, unpolished and under-produced. Even an album of cover songs would do. Releasing their best songs over and over takes away some of their coolness.

The Amazon page says the original release date was in Oct. 2006, so is this "new" or not? I already have all of the songs I'd want from them on various other CDs, including their first "Greatest Hits" CD.



Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....

Allmusic agrees (that it came out in October '06).
The issue with Aerosmith seems to be that different parts of their music are owned by different record labels, and each of them wants to cash in.
From 1972 to 1983, Aerosmith was on Columbia Records (a subsidiary of Sony BMG). From 1983 to 1993 (plus a live album they were contractually obligated for that came out in 1998) they were on Geffen Records, (a subsidiary of Universal Music Group). Starting with their 1997 album, they were once again on Columbia Records.

Columbia Compilations:
Greatest Hits-1980
Gems-1988
Pandora's Box-1991
Pandora's Toys-1995
Greatest Hits 1973 - 1988-2001 & 2004
The Collections Series-June 2007 (a repacking of Gems)

Geffen Compilations:
Big Ones-1994
Young Lust: The Aerosmith Anthology-2001
Gold-2005 (a repacking of Young Lust)
20th Century Masters, The Millenium Collection: The Best Of Aerosmith-November 2007

Compilations with Both (released by Sony):
O, Yeah! Ultimate Aerosmith Hits-2002
Devil's Got A New Disguise: The Very Best of Aerosmith-2006
The Very Best of Aerosmith-June 2007

Not to mention all the times where both record labels decided to just put a couple Aerosmith albums together and call it a new release. So I'm inclined to blame the record labels.

If it's Ride the Lightning and And Justice for All with Appetite and Vulgar, you're set. You could also get away with Kill 'em All or Puppets, but none of that ``Black Album'' stuff.
