'Legendary Child' was originally written in 1991 while the band was recording for 'Get A Grip,' but the track never made the cut. That would explain why it sounds just like the Aerosmith sound fans have enjoyed for over 30 years. Steven Tyler still has the amazing voice that made the band stand out years ago, and Joe Perry still can write catchy riffs and solo like a champion. In the typical Aerosmith fashion, Tyler shows off his pipes with the overextended singing of the song name, "Leeeeeegggggggeeeennnndaaaaaaarrrrryyyyy Chiiiiiiiild." Very reminiscent of listening to 'Sweet Emotion.' It just goes to show that Aerosmith still has the formula for success, and it hasn't had to change in 30 years. It's no wonder so many people consider them to be "America's Greatest Rock and Roll Band."
The song was set to be included on the soundtrack for the new G.I. Joe: Retaliation film. However Paramount announced earlier this week that the movie has been postponed to a 2013 release date. Fans can see Aerosmith performing on the Global Warming Tour with Cheap Trick. 'Music For Another Dimension' is set for release on August 28th. Hear the new single first on AOL Radio's Adult Rock station.
