Aerosmith greatest-hits compilations can be sorted into three

categories: ones that compile the bands 1970s prime with

Columbia Records (of which Greatest Hits [1980] and Gems [1988]

are the benchmarks, especially the former); ones that compile the

bands subsequent run with Geffen Records (Big Ones [1994]); and

ones that ostensibly span both eras via cross-licensing (O, Yeah!

Ultimate Aerosmith Hits [2002]). Devils Got a New Disguise falls

into the final category, as it spans Aerosmiths entire career to

date, from “Dream On” and “Mama Kin” (from the bands 1973

eponymous debut) to a pair of new studio recordings (“Sedona

Sunrise” and “Devils Got a New Disguise”). Like O, Yeah!,

unfortunately, it pays short shrift to the Columbia recordings,

compiling a measly five songs: “Dream On,” “Mama Kin,” “Sweet

Emotion,” “Back in the Saddle,” and “Last Child.” The remainder

of the 18 songs are Geffen recordings, beginning with the

Run-D.M.C. version of “Walk This Way” and then moving on to

Permanent Vacation (1987), bypassing Done with Mirrors (1985) as

well as numerous other latter-day albums, namely Nine Lives

(1997), A Little South of Sanity (1998), Honkin on Bobo (2004),

and Rockin the Joint (2005). Such selective sampling doesnt

bode well for comprehensiveness, yet it does result in a

perfectly listenable album without any bad songs (unlike most of

the double-disc Aerosmith best-ofs like O, Yeah! and Gold, which

are comprehensive yet troublesomely bogged down by subpar

material that doesnt really warrant compilation). After all,

Aerosmith struggled to craft engaging material in the wake of

Pump (1989), their last truly great album, so its actually for

the best that those latter-day albums are bypassed here. Truth be

told, Devils Got a New Disguise is simply a trimmed-down version

of O, Yeah!, and while its perfectly listenable, it also leaves

much to be desired from the standpoint of comprehensiveness. If

you were to own one and only one Aerosmith album and consequently

wanted a broad, if inevitably cursory, overview, Devils Got a

New Disguise fits that niche well; however, youd be better off

with both the Columbia-era Greatest Hits and the Geffen-era Big

Ones, two well-compiled best-ofs that complement each other

ideally, and satisfactorily cover practically all of the bands

key material without any overlap whatsoever.
