AEROSMITH: Get a grip

La banda Hard-Rock de Boston, liderada por Steven Tyler y Joe Perry, lanzó “Get a Grip” al mercado en 1993, después de haberse tomado un respiro desde su último éxito “Pump”, en 1987.

Las dos primeras canciones lanzadas al mercado fueron “Eat the rich” y “Livin’ on the edge”. En este punto se puede decir que les descubrí. Eran los primeros años en que se podía ver la MTV desde casa y ponían los vídeos una y otra vez. Recuerdo que me grabaron el cd en una cinta y me quedé asombrado de lo bueno que era en general. Lo que más me atrajo de “Livin’ on the edge” fue ese crescendo tan particular. “Eat the rich” es pura adrenalina y fuerza, el mejor incio de un disco para un álbum  legendario, que ha sido su mayor éxito.

El disco tenía sus puntos duros, pero no tanto como en los álbumes anteriores, que eran Hard total, e incluso rozaban el heavy.
Como digo, cada canción me había fascinado. Tanto baladas como rockeras. De las baladas, me llamaron la atención tres:  “Crazy”, “Crying” y “Amazing”, que al poco tiempo salieron en single una detrás de otra, con el consiguiente vídeo promocional de la MTV. Son sus clips más famosos, pues en ellos se dieron a conocer las actrices Alicia Silverstone y Liv Tyler, hija del cantante del grupo.

Es cierto que las baladas de “Get a Grip”, convirtieron este disco en algo más para todos los públicos, más comercial que los anteriores, cosas que enfadó a los que  habían sido sus fans de siempre; pero también es verdad que hasta entonces no eran muy conocidos en Europa, y mucho menos en España.

No han cosechado otro éxito parecido a nivel LP, pero sí a nivel de canciones, como la banda sonora de la película Armaggedon: “I dont’ wanna miss a thing”. Es decir, que desde entonces, se puede afirmar, que se han especializado en baladas.


Livin’ on the edge



  1. Reconec que Aerosmith tenen cançons molt bones i que és un dels millors grups. Per alguna raó, no me demanis per què, mai m’han enganxat… :S

  2. Este disco es un cañonazo. La primera cara es adrenalina pura: Eat the Rich, Get a Grip, Fever, Living on the Edge, Walk on Down, Flesh… no se puede sonar más salvaje que esto.

    to the computer, or faster asking for, I put it in the USB
    power adapter from of my own devices (Android smartphone,
    Amazon kindle, etc) along with continue deploying it wirelessly.

    work area.

  9. The new EP Pure Wet is a masterclass in experimental baselines and echoey, breathy vocals all underpinned by varying
    funk and R&B-based rhythms. At a bargain 100
    bolivianos for 4 hours, they have enough power to get 2 gringo-sized riders up the local hills.
