All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Big Ones serves up the hits and nothing but the hits; Aerosmith's excellent debut for Geffen, Done with Mirrors, is conveniently overlooked. So what's left is some of the finest mainstream hard rock of the late '80s and early '90s -- the fruits of one of the most remarkable comebacks in rock & roll history.

The band's best stab at social commentary "Janie's Got a Gun", a sublime slinky throwaway "Deuces Are Wild", deliciously sleazy blues-rockers "Rag Doll," "[Dude] Looks Like a Lady", and their best ballads "What It Takes" and "Cryin'".
