Steven Tyler - We're all somebody from somewhere

Lined this one up expecting to hate it. Talk of country. Not really enjoyed Aerosmith's output for a long time.

 

First spin confirmed all my prejudice. Dreadful.

 

But then I gave it a second go. Mmm. Maybe not sooo bad. And then span it again. Growing on me.

 

I'm still going. Despite all my skepticism I really like this one.

 

Somebody needs to explain what country is to me as I'm not hearing what I thought was country.

It's not a bad album, which as you say, gets better with subsequent spins. There are elements of new country in the sound on some tracks, banjo, lap steel, fiddles and the way some of the songs are constructed, but to call this a full on new country album is missing the mark a little. Then again, anyone else expecting a full blown rock album ala Aerosmith is going to be disappointed as well. Generally I like it, but can see quite a few people on here not being into this at all.all.

I like Steven Tyler. I like country music. So, I thought that this one could be pretty cool. Unfortunately, I was really disappointed. I will be fair and give it more listens, though.

I'm through with my first spin and more or less I'm with the same train as Jez. I think this is not 100% country pop but maybe more of Delta-blues country which quite fitting with Tyler and Aerosmith's blues roots but of course less rock. A good and acceptable album for me, might be better after more spins and I think his vocal somehow just perfectly blended in with this style and this disc serves right as an interlude to our regular metal/rock playlist.

I am an Aerosmith fan, and I am somewhat of a country fan, but the last time I truly enjoyed an Aerosmith album was Get a grip, and only partially enjoyed Nine lives. Everything since has been mediocre at best. From what I have heard of this album, it pretty much sounds like more of the same, so I will wait until I can pick it up cheap. Who knows, maybe I will really like it, just not willing to take the risk at full price.

    • The Aussies right, this is against the rules, this is a no crossover thread
    • C'mon Doggy. We've been over this. Posts in this thread must be of a certain standard.
    • No he can push all he wants, he can bitch and fight and argue, and say the most insane liberal shit he can think of, but first this morning I had to fucking hear it from Karisa, then I get on here to escape her and Glens being a disrespectful motherfucker, we can talk shit, and insult each other, and clown and make fun, and be mean as we want, but when you start talking to me like im a fucking punk then my attitude will follow suit, Ive gone above and beyond to treat HH community with respect and I am about as laid back as your going to find me on here, but if we are gonna be mean, then just get it out in the open, cause I got zero problem with mean, but dont think for a second im not gonna be mean back, theres a huge line between trolling and talking to someone like their a bitch, trust me I know, I do both daily, this is the last im going to say about this, this is my position, so laugh it up, make your jokes, talk your shit, then drop it, fuckin liberals, lol
    • What is the new Covid variant and why is it a concern? Scientists have detected a new Covid-19 variant called B.1.1.529 and are working to understand its potential implications. About 100 confirmed cases have been identified in South Africa, Hong Kong, Israel and Botswana.   B.1.1.529 has a very unusual constellation of mutations, which are worrying because they could help it evade the body’s immune response and make it more transmissible, scientists have said. Any new variant that is able to evade vaccines or spread faster than the now-dominant Delta variant may pose a significant threat as the world emerges from the pandemic. Dr Susan Hopkins, the chief medical adviser to the UK Health Security Agency, said the R value, or effective reproduction number, of the B.1.1.529 variant in the South African province of Gauteng, where it was first found, was now 2 – a level of transmission not recorded since the beginning of the pandemic, before restrictions began to be imposed. For an R of anything above 1, an epidemic will grow exponentially.
    • Now kids... fight nice. This is the Flamefest section, so there's a bit more latitude here than in other areas. I think Glen is deliberately pushing your buttons, i.e., trolling you... especially since he "couldn't care less about U.S. politics"... *ahem*. He know he can push you into a rant. Don't fall for it. Ignore him like most of the rest of the people here do.
    • While I'm in the atheist camp I do not have a problem with most of the people who have faith in God....to each their own...as for Xmas , it is a holiday and should be about family and if religion is a necessary part of it for you, then so be it.....
