Music From Another Dimension!
Aborted recording sessions, cancelled concerts, throat surgery, the relentless Tyler-Perry feud -- it's amazing Aerosmith even wanted to make another album. Yet here they are, in 2012, with Music From Another Dimension! The record, though not as heavy, echoes 1997's Nine Lives in how it teeters between power-balladry ("Can't Stop Loving You," featuring Carrie Underwood) and classic rock 'n' roll ("Legendary Child"). There are also a lot of samples and sonic collage; the best are found on "Street Jesus," the kind of boogie-Beatles number the group has been cranking out since Rocks.
