Drug addiction couldn't stop them, nor could the ascension of alterna-rock and the process of aging. Not only are Aerosmith still together, but they're still recording hit singles. Since their formation in the early '70s, the band has scored a multitude of platinum albums and Top 40 hits. Moreover, Aerosmith remain a flamboyant, energized live band capable of recapturing that magical, sexual endorphin rush of youthful rock & roll abandon. Yup, on a good night, seeing Aerosmith is like experiencing your first time all over again. So it comes as no surprise that this band's double live disc is no mere trip down memory lane. Vocalist Steven Tyler still sounds raw, untamed, and on-key, shrieking as passionately as ever and reaching notes Robert Plant and Oz. Osbourne would sell their kidneys for. And guitarist Joe Perry's bluesy, blustery rhythms and piercing solos still echo with passion and hunger. The first disc is a bit bogged down with '90s material, but the band performs stellar versions of "Love in an Elevator," "Livin' on the Edge," "Cryin'," and "Janie's Got Gun." It's the second disc that really sizzles, as the Toxic Twins dip into their drug-addled past and unleash monsters such as "Back in the Saddle," "Dream On," and "Sweet Emotion." Get your rocks off! --Jon Wiederhorn

The worst. Terrible.

"On this album, all the old songs are ruined and the new ones are not up to the same level. This live album almost made me stop listening to Aerosmith.
Then I listened to the old (Rocks and earlier) albums again. These old albums were packed with solid, powerful rock. A Little South of Sanity ruins all of these classic tracks. I erased it from my iPOD.
Save the money you will waste on this album and use it to get some of the old, original Aerosmith. (Aerosmith, Get Your Wings, Toys in the Attic, and Rocks.)"
Complete disappointing live!

"Awful! I have a lot of live material of 92 tour and it's far better. I was expecting only for better sound, and I had only this. No soul, no inspiration, no exhibition. Aerosmith was a really good rock and roll band, but they don't have to play the songs the same way tan in studio: This is live, folks! If you play the same songs the same way, the studio versions are much better. And don't talk about the amount of ballads in a rock and roll live CD... Please, liberate Aerosmith and return to the exhibition of the great voice of Tyler, and the personal solos of Perry. So this is a live CD: demonstrate your power, your soul and your rythm and blues."
Best album Aerosmith has cut since Rocks.

"I'm serious, all their albums between Rocks and a Little South of Sanity are very mediocre. Listen to the track Same Old Song and Dance, it really kicks!"
