The long-running franchise's latest instalment "might be the summer's most satisfying blockbuster"
Aerosmith : Just Push Play
But relax: after 1,000 inadvertent listens, they will corrupt your very soul.
40-something in all of us.
Not quite completely unchanged, mind. When Aerosmith accidentally helped invent rap-metal by duetting with Run DMC on 'Walk This Way' in 1986, few could've envisaged how little they'd capitalise on it. Belatedly, 'Just Push Play' attempts to cash in, with some duff techno-metal frills and the atrocious 'Outta Your Head', wherein Steven Tyler's rapping is so inept it makes Fred Durst sound like Chuck D.
As a screeching middle-aged rock peacock, though, Tyler remains both magnetic and hilarious. Songs like 'Jaded' and 'Fly Away From Here' have a quota of guitar solos, clichés and outdated behaviour that's initially stomach-turning.
But relax: after 1,000 inadvertent listens, they will corrupt your very soul. Truly, age shall not wither them. How could it, when all the drugs did that years ago?
