"(It) Feels So Good"
Steven Tyler's first official solo single has his doofiest parenthesis-abusing title since "Falling in Love (Is Hard on the Knees)." He uses an Aerosmith-style guitar riff and some chintzy synth drums, but he can't shape them into anything resembling an Aerosmith song – it sounds more like late-period Genesis, circa "I Can't Dance." Even when he honks a harmonica, it's impossible not to notice how offensively wussy the guitars are. "(It) Feels So Good" ends up sounding like a cry for help, in the form of Aerosmith's Joe Perry and Brad Whitford.
