C umpletely classic Aerosmith. (You see, because Back in the Saddle is really about riding a, um, eesh, nevermind.) The single mix is noticeably different from the album version: shorter intro, less whinnying, different ending, sounds slower too and chunkier but that could be my ears playing tricks. (I was going to add that “my ears get bored,” but in the world of Aerosmith and its double entendres I decided not to.) The B side is the album version of “Nobody’s Fault,” an invocation of the apocalypse that shares more than half a title with Led Zeppelin’s heavy conjuring. Side to side, this might be the mightiest single in the Aerosmithy’s arsenal.
