Review: Aerosmith – The Other Side (LP Version) (Rock)

This review covers the hard rock track Aerosmith – The Other Side (LP Version).

This track was released in 1990 as part of a single.

The track starts with a snare and vocals. From there, the brass take over for a moment. This leads the track into a more vocal part of the track again with the main chorus. The brass is still there, but take less prominence.

After this, the track takes a brief detour into a verse. It doesn’t take long before the track then goes into the main chorus again. In the next verse, the brass take a bit more prominence in the track again.

From there, a guitar solo takes over backs by brass and piano. At the end, the vocals come back. Eventually, the track goes back into the main chorus, though the backup vocals take a prominent roll at first. The main vocals take over with piano joining in. After that, the track then fades out.

One thing is for sure, the track does have a much more full sound. This is thanks to the complexity of the instrumental section. In fact, this track is almost backed by an entire orchestral section on top of it all. The more full sound does give this track a pretty decent presence overall.

The verse and the chorus does get jumbled together a bit from time to time. It can be a bit hard to discern between verse and chorus. On a related note, the dynamics seem a bit limited as the volume on this track does seem to just go maxed out and stay there.

Generally speaking, this is an alright track. It is by no means terrible, but it isn’t the most amazing thing I’ve heard either. The track does have a rather full sound with the entire orchestral backing the rock pieces, but the volume on this does seem to stay in one position for the most part. Verse and chorus can get a little jumbled together from time to time as well. A decent overall track.

Score
7/10
