    Aerosmith are one of those bands that critics can't cope with. "Where's the originality, the progression, the modernity and the surprise that my heavily worked pallet needs?" they wonder, before they turn away to press play on a gamin duo who fuse the latest synth with sheet metal beating and an experimental wail. Fair enough, each to their own. But to ignore Aerosmith is to say more about us than them. They have defined (and, if you're paying attention, consistently evolved) a niche that screams fun and shamelessly raunchy playfulness. They should remind today's lost, ironic and prohibitively cool guys and gals that, while time is indeed short, the party's waiting if you can just unchain yourself from disinterested disillusionment Collapse

    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.
