Aerosmith are a strange conundrum these days. The Boston hard-rock band are still fairly energetic onstage even though they haven’t released a decent album in decades. During such long creative dry spells in the past, lead guitarist Joe Perry has sometimes resurfaced with his own material, and later this week he releases his fourth solo album, Sweetzerland Manifesto. The guitarist actually has a decent voice, and he has occasionally sung lead vocals on such tracks as the punked-out “Bright Light Fright” (from Aerosmith’s 1977 album, Draw the Line). On the new record, though, Perry wisely lets such charismatic guest singers as Robin Zander, Terry Reid and The New York Dolls’ David Johansen do most of the talking for him. Zander’s typically fiery howling on “Aye, Aye, Aye” helps to make up for Perry’s bluesy but soggy cover of “Eve of Destruction.”
