The Review
Devil's Got a New Disguise - The Very Best of Aerosmith is a compilation album by Aerosmith. The album is intended to fulfill Aerosmith's contract with Sony Music/Columbia Records and to tide their fans over until the band releases their 15th studio album, scheduled for completion in Spring 2007.

Aerosmith greatest-hits compilations can be sorted into three categories: 1) CD's that compile the band's 1970s prime cuts with Columbia Records which include Aerosmith's Greatest Hits [1980] and Gems [1988] which are the benchmarks of the early 70's classics. Records that compile the band's subsequent run with Geffen Records. Big Ones [1994] The the cross-licensing which ostensibly span both eras(O, Yeah! Ultimate Aerosmith Hits [2002]and Young Lust: The Aerosmith Anthology [2001] Devil's Got a New Disguise falls into the final category, as it spans Aerosmith's entire career to date, from "Dream On" and "Mama Kin" (from the band's 1973 eponymous debut) to a pair of new studio recordings ("Sedona Sunrise" and "Devil's Got a New Disguise") Which are leftovers from the (Pump)sessions. Like O, Yeah! , unfortunately,it gives very little props to the Columbia recordings, compiling barely 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 doesn't bode well for being comprehensive, yet it does result in a perfectly listenable album without any bad songs (unlike most of the double-disc Aerosmith best-of's like O, Yeah! and Gold, which are comprehensively bogged down by less popular material that doesn't really warrant compilation.
