Not horrible, but don't expect much music
16 November 2000 | by (Austin, TX, USA) – See all my reviews

This is definitely primarily a documentary. There really isn't more than a few songs clips on here. Basically, the deal is this: Aerosmith has appeared on Columbia and Geffen records; Geffen put out "Things that go pump in the night" a better video not to be confused with this one. This was Columbia's attempt to compete in the video market during a big album for Aerosmith. Also, because Columbia doesn't own the rights to the songs on Pump, all the song clips are studio-out takes or production stuff because of a loophole where performed material doesn't really violate copyrights on competing labels. Anywho, this should basically be reserved to die-hard Aerosmith fans like myself. There is interesting conversation, but not too much happening. No offense to Aerosmith, but don't get this one until you own most of the other Aerosmith videos. Definitely better Aerosmith videos out there: Big Ones you can look at is the best, then something like Video Scrapbook, Texxas Jam '78 (good set list), then Things that Go pump in the night, then Making of Pump, then Permanent Vacation 3x5. That's my ranking for the Aerosmith videos, anyway. Of course, I love them all, but I'm just looking at for potential fans who naturally want to start with the best videos. Rock on!
