    Better than Aerosmith? No way. But actually the best thing he has released out of Aerosmith for sure. [2]

    This is a real good cd. It is MUCH better than Aerosmith imo. Perrys voice can appeal to hippies even if they listen to it or even avid alternative listeners. Steve Tyler gets old fast but this guy has it all.
