Get A Grip by Aerosmith
Released: Apr 1993
Label: Geffen
Boston's finest weathered the Grunge Era just fine thanks to this MTV-saturating soft-core hootenanny that starts out all macho ("Eat the Rich" is a surly piece of class warfare) but peaks with a series of tender, catchy, frankly magnificent pop smashes: Pick your favorite from "Crazy," "Amazing" and "Cryin'," whose videos starred a barely legal Alicia Silverstone. The album's an ideal middle ground between Rocks and "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing"; if you want to amuse your friends, "Flesh" is just beyond belief: "His sword is sharp and hard as stone/ Her cauldron begs for one more bone."
