A Little South Of Sanity
AEROSMITH A Little South Of Sanity
'A Little South Of Sanity' is a two-CD live set culled from their 1997-98 'Nine Lives' tour and the 'Get A Grip' tour of 1993-94, and includes inferior versions of global smashes like 'Dude (Looks Like A Lady)' and 'Love In An Elevator'. Recorded in faceless enormodomes, then airbrushed into abstraction, this is a sanitised slice of rock veriti and a less than adequate tribute to the 25-year "pilgrimage of rock'n'roll" singer Steven Tyler gushes about in the press blurb.
If this is a "big thanks to the faithful who've allowed us to rock their worlds", then it isn't a particularly heartfelt one. A little south of sanity, perhaps, but two miles west of entertaining.
