引用会员UKYOAPPLE的介绍：这是Aerosmith乐队的主音吉他Joe Perry2005年的个人专辑，据说其中的词曲创作、器乐演奏、演唱都是由他一人完成的。Joe Perry上次出个人专辑还是在80年代。下面是Amazon和Joe Perry自己对这张专辑的评论。
For his first solo album in over 20 years, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry isn't exactly tearing up the blueprint. He may not have Diane Warren faxing over the power-ballads but this eponymous release is pretty much what you would expect from the man who has provided the sleazy, powerhouse riffs for everything from "Walk This Way" to "Dude Looks Like A Lady." He's no Steven Tyler but Perry holds his own on the vocal tracks here, including respectful covers of the Doors' "Crystal Ship" and Woody Guthrie's "Vigilante Man." But it's the bluesy instrumental material like "Twilight" and "Mercy" that shows the guitar hero (who also plays bass, keyboards and co-produces) at his amplifier blowing best. --Aidin Vaziri
"It didn't occur to me to put this record out until Aerosmith decided to take a year off," says Joe about his new album, which opens with the album's first focus track, "Shakin' My Cage." Joe Perry showcases Joe's vocals on songs like "Push Comes To Shove" and "Dying To Be Free" and his musical chops on instrumentals like "Mercy" and "Twilight."
"It's as honest a record as you're gonna get," says Joe Perry, revealing the nature of this true solo work. In fact, Joe sings all the vocals and plays all the guitars, bass and keyboard parts on Joe Perry. Perry also produced the album, which was co-produced by Paul Caruso, who recorded and engineered the disc and played drums throughout. Don't look for a who's who list of guest players here, except for a friend who teaches at the Berklee School of Music--"an old-school analog synth guy, Chris Noise, who plays the string part on one ballad, 'Ten Years,'" says Joe Perry.
"Seems like these days that when people go off and do a solo record, it's more the norm to bring in a bunch of all-star friends, but I already have the amazing fortune to play with one of the best singers in the world and the hardest rocking band on the planet," Joe offers, "but also, the way these songs developed from the demos, they already had the sound I was looking for. And it was a refreshing challenge to work this way."
