2012 has turned into a banner year for rock fans; first rock legends Kiss released their new album MONSTER, and now the iconic Aerosmith just unveiled their new studio album Music From Another Dimension. Aerosmith have been hard at work on this and it sure as hell has paid off. Opening the album with “Luv XXX” the band are doing what they do best releasing hard groove oriented rock music with great hooks, catchy choruses and those signature harmonies.

‘Music from another Dimension’ is sure to appeal to Aerosmith fans of all era’s especially those into the Toys in the Attic and Pump era’s of the band. Filled with tongue in cheek lyrics Steven Tyler is on fire, whaling on every track as only he could and doing one hell of a fine job too! One song that is sure to become a huge hit is “Can’t Stop Lovin You” which features American superstar Carrie Underwood and will have you hooked instantly.

It’s great to see the mighty Joe Perry taking on Lead vocals for a couple of tracks on the new album also and the line-up of guests on this album reads like the who’s who of entertainment from Tyler’s daughter Mia Tyler to Julian Lennon and actor and musician Johnny Depp who sings backing vocals on Perry’s “Freedom Fighter.”

Aerosmith fans will be extremely pleased with the bands first studio album in six years. It’s certainly been well worth the wait and by the sound of things Australian fans will get a chance to hear some of these brand new tracks live in 2013.

  1. Had a few listens to this album so far and it just feels like a better title would have been “Music For Sad People”, just seems like too many ballads to many heart broken songs. Big fan of Aerosmith, but this album seems like a miss for me so far. So far my favorite song is Freedom Fighter, which seems to have a different feel from the rest of the album.
