    Let's face it. Aerosmith only made 1 truly amazing album. It's called Rocks. If you don't know/own it & are looking at reviews for this album, get THAT one. Regarding THIS album... I love how hyped it is (they're back!) & how truly awful it is. Are we the fans accepting this as a gooood album? The basement ceiling gets higher (& w bigger names down there!) Really, I don't know what the f is going on in this band. I think all the guys (other than Steven Tyler) deserve more. Joe Perry is great. Look up Combination on youtube. And Jack Douglas... smarten up! You can do better! Collapse

    Nothing is special about this album, it CANNOT be compared to Toys in The Attic or Rocks for sure. It's not classic aerosmith IMO at all. It sounds like the 90s bubblegum pop aerosmith on the majority of the album with some folk and bluesy songs thrown in, with maybe ONE song that i can see them calling "old school" but it's nothing special at that even.
    The guitar work was just "okay" ,
    drums were the highlight for me on a lot of the tracks. I recommend sticking with the older material if your new to Aerosmith (Which i doubt 98% of America isn't) Expand

    When it good, Music From Another Dimension! captures Aerosmith in all their shiny, glittering glory.... However, at over an hour in length, the party begins to sag after a while. [3 Nov 2012, p.52]

    While some of this uneven material has been reheated from past writing sessions, Aerosmith are genuinely fighting to reclaim their soul.

    Overall, Dimension has some solid moments and no outright duds, but it works better as the basis for a playlist than as a start-to-finish album.
