Preview: Tough Love: Best of the Ballads - Aerosmith

Tough Love: Best Of The BalladsArtist: Aerosmith
Title: Tough Love: Best of the Ballads
Release Date: May 10, 2011
Label: Geffen
Format(s): CD, DD

It would seem that the world is filled with more than enough Aerosmith hits packages but Geffen records has decided that it can eek out one more. Tough Love: Best of the Ballads hits stores on May 10 on Geffen.

The package comes about with the resurgence of interest in the band due to the weekly appearances of lead Steven Tyler on American Idol. It has been reported that album sales for the group are up 250% since the 2011 edition started.

The title of the album is a bit of a misnomer as it would be hard to classify Love in an Elevator, Rag Doll and Janie's Got a Gun as true ballads, but it seems they were somehow deemed slower than most Aerosmith songs so they "must be ballads." Even more interesting is that the group's biggest ballad, I Don't Want to Miss a Thing, is missing.
