First European re-release of the tenth full-length studio album by legendary American band.
Aerosmith continued its winning streak. "Pump", the follow-up to 1987’s "Permanent Vacation", slams one point home with particular force: that the renewed vigor displayed by the band on "Permanent Vacation" wasn’t just a fluke. While "Permanent Vacation" was a major comeback for Aerosmith, it was also somewhat of a stylistic departure. Songs like “Dude (Looks Like a Lady)” and “Angel” may have echoed the band’s signature style, but they represented a slicker, glossier version of the ragtag Rockers so many of us grew up with. "Pump", however, transports the listener right back to the gilt-edged Grunge of Aerosmith’s wonder years. More than anything else, the album recalls Aerosmith circa "Toys In The Attic", the period just before substance abuse and Tyler-Perry bickering sapped the band of its creative energy.
"Pump" is the second of three sequentially recorded Aerosmith albums to feature producer Bruce Fairbairn and engineers Mike Fraser and Ken Lomas at Little Mountain Sound Studios. On the "Pump", songs show an older, wiser Aerosmith traipsing boldly into the nineties, but between the lines lurk the bombastic bandits of the seventies. Where "Permanent Vacation" seemed a little overwhelmed by its Pop concessions, "Pump" revels in them without ever losing sight of Aerosmith's dirty Hard Rock core. Which doesn't mean the record is a sellout - "What It Takes" has more emotion and grit than any of their other power ballads; "Janie's Got a Gun" tackles more complex territory than most previous songs; and "The Other Side" and "Love in an Elevator" Rock relentlessly, no matter how many horns and synths fight with the guitars. Such ambition and successful musical eclecticism make "Pump" rank with "Rocks" and "Toys In The Attic".
The album has certified sales of 7 000 000 copies in the U.S. to date, and is tied with its successor "Get A Grip" as Aerosmith's second best-selling studio album in the U.S. ("Toys In The Attic" leads with eight million). It produced a variety of successes and "firsts" for the band including their first Grammy Award ("Janie's Got a Gun"). "Love in an Elevator" became the first Aerosmith song to hit #1 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. Additionally, it is the only Aerosmith album to date to have three Top 10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and three number one singles on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. The album was also the fourth bestselling album of the year 1990.
In the UK, it was the second Aerosmith album to be certified Silver (60 000 units sold) by the British Phonographic Industry, achieving this in September 1989.
