Sadly, this was the period where Joe Perry was off doing his JPP thing and Jimmy Crespo had taken his place. 

You didn't like Jimmy Crespo? I thought he did good, and I like the music from that era of Aerosmith.

I think he did an adequate job filling-in for Joe. But let's face it, there's only 1 Joe Perry. ;) Let's face it, Aerosmith without JP is like the Stones without Keef. Just my opinion, mind you.

Rock in a Hard Place was trashed by everyone for years but I thought it was great from the first time I heard it.  Jailbait and Lightning Strikes are a killer one-two punch opening, and I really liked the cover of Cry Me a River.  The riffing in Bolivian Ragamuffin and Bitch's Brew was very much the Aeromith "thing".  Over the years I've noticed more people are saying they like it.  I have some live bootlegs of the tour with Jimmy and Rick and they played all the old stuff just fine.  I don't know how Crespo never ended up in some other big successful band after that.

Another great album to check out is Whitford/St. Holmes - Reunion from 2015.  There are songs on there that sound more like Aerosmith than Aerosmith has in 40 years.
