After nearly getting off the ground with Get Your Wings, Aerosmith finally perfected their mix of Stonesy raunch and Zeppelin-esque riffing with their third album, Toys in the Attic. The success of the album derives from a combination of an increased sense of songwriting skills and purpose. Not only does Joe Perry turn out indelible riffs like "Walk This Way," "Toys in the Attic," and "Sweet Emotion," but Steven Tyler has fully embraced sleaziness as his artistic muse. Taking his cue from the old dirty blues "Big Ten Inch Record," Tyler writes with a gleeful impishness about sex throughout Toys in the Attic, whether it's the teenage heavy petting of "Walk This Way," the promiscuous "Sweet Emotion," or the double-entendres of "Uncle Salty" and "Adam's Apple." The rest of Aerosmith, led by Perry's dirty, exaggerated riffing, provide an appropriately greasy backing. Before Toys in the Attic, no other hard rock band sounded like this. Sure, Aerosmith cribbed heavily from the records of the Rolling Stones, New York Dolls, and Led Zeppelin, but they didn't have any of the menace of their influences, nor any of their mystique. Aerosmith was a gritty, street-wise hard rock band who played their blues as blooze and were in it for a good time; Toys in the Attic crystallizes that attitude.

Fuck yeah, this rocks. Hard rock, doesn't try to be anything other than what it is, album only 37min, this is a solid 4/5. The only other Aerosmith I've heard is their late 80s/early 90s stuff and Tyler sounds way better here.

According to Chuck Eddy, of all the metallic albums recorded between the dawn of the Miocene era and AD 1990, this is the fourth best. I won't quibble. It coats Stones licks and Skynyrd boogie in squeezed zit-juice with such sexed-up fervour that it generates teenage kicks as high as Chuck Berry's or early Beatles'. Makes you feel like the fate of the world hangs on your puny 15 year old dreams. After putting his audience and himself through the ringer on tracks 1-8, Steve Tyler gathers us all up in a sweaty, stinking (probably quite horny) hug. We saw him crying? Uh-uh, he saw us bawling our pubescent eyes out.

Over 40 years I've been listening to Aerosmith, and I am finding more meaning in their music still. I love it. One of the best albums of the era. Toys In The Attic is one of their best songs. So great tracks such as first song: "Toys in the Attic" - very good track to start your day! "No More No More" - one of the most high-energy rock songs ...EVER!!! The last song of the album "You See Me Crying" - its more calmly song... I dont know but I love it. Awesome album from an awesome band. Rock on!

Day 22 of Albums You Must Hear.. Today’s offering is the third album from one of my favorite American Rock Bands, Aerosmith! Toys in the Attic, released in 1975, went on to become their most commercially successful albums in the U.S. selling 8 million copies. I have to credit my Dad for turning me on to Aerosmith. I would go through his collection of cassettes and study the artwork while he played their songs on the way to drop us kiddos off at elementary school. While being more Hard Rock than some other bands and not quite as heavy as others, Aerosmith kept a sweet balance of Rock and Blues, especially on Toys in the Attic. This record proved to not only be big for the Rock genre, it would years later become instrumental to the success of crossover rap music. More on that later. The title track, Toys in the Attic, showcases a much more cohesive gelling of the band, as they had spent much of their time touring in previous years. The constant live performances would sharpen their blade and it really shows on the title track. You knew that Aerosmith was bringing the heat. Sweet Emotions is tied with being my favorite song along with Walk This Way. In 1986 co-founder of Def Jam Recordings and producer, Rick Rubin, who had success popularizing hip-hop artists using hard rock samples and riffs, would convince a reluctant Run-D.M.C., to cover Walk This Way and the results would forever change the landscape of commercial Rap music. (It would also resurrect a floundering Aerosmith at the time.) Big Ten Inch was a superbly satisfying cover of Big Moose Jackson’s Blues song from 1952. The tongue in cheek lyrics paired with the blues and swing sound would be a nice highlight to the track listing. The final track also showcased Aerosmith’s willingness to slow it down a bit and let Tyler’s piano sit front and center. While most of my personal favorite albums and songs from Aerosmith would come in the late eighties and 90’s, Toys in the Attic is nearly flawless. Thanks Dad for introducing me to one of my all time favorite bands. This record is a definite must hear. Please share your thoughts, memories and opinions!!

As a kid I grew up listening to current rock which now happens to be "classic rock" - and sometime in the early 90s like a lot of my generation I got tired of nearly all of it (turn on any of 7-8 local FM stations anywhere and it's (still) the same 50-60 songs) and just never played a lot of it for a long time. Combine that with a move to Boston and living there for many years ... with the extra amount of Aerosmith played there in the late 80s/90s I grew to have a "holygodihatethisbandpleaseneverletmehearthemagain" attitude about them. ..... But holy crap I had forgotten - this is a goddamn great rock and roll album. Greasy, nasty, tight yet at the same time loosely played, ballsy riffs with unexpected chords and melodic vocals - it really jumped beyond blues-based rock into something far more interesting with surprising variety: the aggression of the title track, the Alice Cooper-like creepiness of "Uncle Salty" and the gorgeous melodies of songs like "No More No More" and "You See Me Crying" ... and I haven't even had to mention the two eternally monstrous hits of "Walk This Way" and "Sweet Emotion" - turns out when you voluntarily listen to them, and especially in context of the album, it helps you realize how good they actually are. :) Only thing keeping this album from a 5 star rating for me is the weirdly out-of-place drudgery of "Round and Round" - it's as if Spinal Tap went back in time and copped the worst of Black Sabbath. 5 lost minutes in an otherwise kick-ass collection. So the key is to just not listen to something for 20+ years - if it's good, it'll come back to you. 9/10 4 big stars

The lightning-speed swamp rock riffing that the band does on the opener simply sounds great. There's more pop-blues to come, and it's good. Not quite Dutch angled, but with plenty of edge to keep the ear engaged. The attempt to sexualize their interpretation of the genre comes off a bit flat, but thankfully it's not the main thrust of the record. The second half loses a bit of the energy, but serves as a demonstration of musical breadth and ends with a bang. Very impressive for a sub-forty-minute album.

As a 90s kid growing up with 90s Aerosmith, I didn't take Aerosmith very seriously. In fact, I loathed Aerosmith. They're up there with Billy Joel as artists who I completely understand the success and reach they've had, but I really only appreciate on a cultural level rather than a musical one. So color me surprised when I put this album on to find some real tightly played hard rock. Maybe a little unsophisticated lyrically, but you can see yourself handing the Zeppelin crown over to them. And then Big Ten Inch Record played. No, I was right. These guys are corny. Then comes Sweet Emotion and you see why they got so big.

This album is really awesome. I enjoyed it today while driving from Ft Lauderdale on i-95 back home to Jensen Beach. I had already had 2 songs from this album in my Liked songs. I added Uncle Salty to that list today. The guitars are incredible. What a time that was to be alive! My mom graduated high school the year this album came out. 1975.

This album starts off like a roller coaster electromagnetically launched out of the start house. The guitars on Toys In The Attic (song) are engaging right from the get go. Uncle Salty starts out a bit slow but then by the end I quite enjoyed it. The bluesy Big Ten Inch Record is a great cover, but I don’t think the lyrics are about an LP. Steven Tyler claims he said “cept on my big ten inch…” I definitely heard suck like everyone else. Walk This Way and Sweet Emotion are all-time classics while You See Me Crying is a nice ballad with piano and backing orchestra. Overall I really like 3 songs, like 3 songs, and enjoy, but am somewhat indifferent to, 3 songs.

Just as no one would have heard of Afrika Bambaataa if it weren't for Kraftwerk, far fewer people (especially in the white suburbs) would have heard of run DMC if not for Walk this Way. So even though I never liked the song, I can appreciate its legacy. The title track is also good and a few others are listenable. between a 2 and a 3 for me.

I can't figure out whether Aerosmith is a good band that I think sucks, or if they are just completely overrated. I'm honestly shocked by how well-reviewed this album is. It's so generic. The only "good" song on it is Sweet Emotion. Granted, all the guitar solos absolutely rip, but that's the only thing I can think of that this album has going for it.

ЧТО: Третий студийный альбом героев Земли, принявших участие в спасении планеты от Армагеддона, а также по совместительству хард-рок пионеров Aerosmith. Пластинка получила новый продакшн, отличный от предшествующей Get Your Wings и подчёркивающий значительный прогресс в музыке и лирике, достигнутый группой за небольшой срок. КАКОЙ: Музыка передаёт дух хард-рока в полной мере, хотя на Toys In The Attic «смиты» ограничивают свою тягу к Led Zeppelin-образным ходам и формам, следуя таким образом по своему уникальному пути. Яркое гитарное звучание. В современных условиях, когда гитароцентричная музыка переживает не лучшие времена, а саму гитару пытаются любыми путями спрятать за синтами и вокалом, мощные гитарные риффы греют душу. Альбом слушается на одном дыхании и, в отличие от некоторых хард-рок альбомов 70-х, не вызывает зевков. Особый шарм всему происходящему придаёт надрывной вокал Стива Тайлера. Этот голос, местами сипловатый, время от времени переливающийся оттенками, заостряет внимание на жанровой принадлежности альбома, где красивый вокал - это вроде как принято. Особую радость вызывает заключительная песня на альбоме - You See Me Crying. В ее записи принял участие полноценный симфонический оркестр. В ней множество слоев и небольших элементов, не очень заметных, но создающих атмосферу. Хотя звучит это все очень несложно. И в этом, как мне кажется, главная фишка этого альбома. Toys In The Attic с порога представляется слушателю не очень сложным и мудрёным. Однако стоит прислушаться, и прямо на глазах монолитная целостность исчезает и музыка оказывается слоёным пирогом. Тем временем звучит альбом как нечто полноценное, структурно соответствующее канонам жанра: несколько песен на классик хард-рок риффах (Adam’s Apple, Round And Round), более задорная без пяти минут панковая вещь (Toys In Attic), дань прошлому, а в данном случае наследию Чака Берри и в целом рокеров-шестидесятников (Big Ten Inch Records), романтичные рок-баллады (No More No More, You See Me Crying) и стоящие особняком Walk This Way и Sweet Emotion (по моему мнению, лучшие вещи на альбоме). На первой мы слышим мощный самодостаточный бас, на котором в сочетании с вокалом Тайлера во многом держится песня. На второй создаётся устойчивое ощущение джем-сессии. Так эти песни в общем-то и создавались. Walk This Way - одна из величайших песен группы - вообще результат случайного «баловства Джо Перри с риффами». А слова для Sweet Emotion Стив Тайлер написал на стене в студии записи. Одно слово - рок-н-ролл. О ЧЕМ: Лирика разнообразна, но опять же удивительным образом связывает все песни альбома вместе. Само название альбома является американским аналогом русского выражения «шарики за ролики». То есть безумие. Сам Тайлер подчеркивал, что с этим альбомом группа хотела войти в историю. Да так войти, чтобы о них узнали даже инопланетяне. Пластинка как то, что никогда не будет выброшено, лежит на чердаке с другими любимыми вещами. И дальше на альбоме Aerosmith демонстрируют те самые «игрушки на чердаке». Uncle Salty - песня о чувствах работника дома для детей-сирот. Как говорил Тайлер: «Солти работает в доме для потерянных детей. Я - маленькая девочка, осиротевший мальчик. А также я Солти. Вот, что все это означает». Ощущение отчужденности и одиночества оставленного ребёнка - первая «игрушка на чердаке». Adam’s Apple обыгрывает идею запретного плода. Учитывая, что многие члены группы находились в момент записи в наркотической и алкогольной зависимости, можно предположить, что вызванные этим ощущения лежат на «чердаке», обёрнутые страницами из Библии, как листами оберточной бумаги. Walk This Way - рок-н-ролльная история о сексе и свободе, которым также найдётся место на «чердаке». О том же, можно сказать, и песня с говорящим названием Big Ten Inch Records, и Sweet Emotion, которая по поверьям фанатов группы связана с репутацией жены гитариста Джо Перри. На No More No More Тайлер рассказывает, что он «не видел дневного света с тех пор, как была создана группа» и стирал пальцы в кровь, играя на пианино. Round And Round фиксирует ощущение повсеместных изменений. Юность уходит, любовь - тоже. Ничего из этого не вернуть назад. Заканчивается это все пятиминутной балладой You See Me Crying, рассказывающей о моральной поддержке и о том, что своими проблемами можно и нужно делиться. Странным образом то, что в начале казалось сумасшествием, в конце приводит к осмыслению и оказывает чуть ли не терапевтическое воздействие на слушателя. Не в первый раз замечаю такое. ИТОГ: Мое отношение к альбому, как я понимаю, можно определить хотя бы по количеству написанного выше текста. Это лучший хард-рок альбом, который я слышал. Поражает высокий уровень концептуальности и в целом монолитности пластинки, учитывая разнообразие песен, если взять их по отдельности. И здесь все работает как в супе: каждый ингредиент можно есть отдельно, но вместе они приобретают новое качество, принципиально другой вкус. Следите за своим «чердаком» и заглядывайте туда хоть иногда с мыслью, что там лежит все, что останется в этом мире после вас. ЛУЧШИЕ ПЕСНИ: Walk This Way, Sweet Emotion, You See Me Crying.

Gran disco de Aerosmith aunque no sean mis canciones favoritas. En varios momentos del disco usan sax y otros instrumentos de viento y no debieron dejar de hacerlo. Parecieran dos bandas distintas ésta del 75 y la de los 90s. Quizá sea por haberlas escuchado ya dos millones de veces pero las canciones más famosas del disco no son las que más me gustan. Este disco ha envejecido muy bien y de entrada pensé que sería un tres automático sin más, pero es en definitiva un 4.5. Maneja muchos estilos, cero monótono, va del Aerosmith más conocido (Walk, Sweet) al cercano al blues (Round, No more) o a los extremos queenezcos (You see). Discazo. Songs: Round and Round, No More No More, Adam´s Apple, Big Ten Inch Record

Passa per ser el millor de la banda, que no és poca cosa. Jo sempre he trobat que els seus primers quatre discos són tots ells igual de bons, una banda en ple estat de gràcia abans que els excessos els restessin creativitat (tot i que 'Draw the Line' no baixa molt el llistó). Aquí, no hi ha cançó a no disfrutar. 'Walk This Way' i 'Sweet Emotion' són les més conegudes, però cada un dels temes és una joia per si mateixa

1975, третий студийный альбом. Период раннего подъема до провала. Хэви метал, блюз рок, фанк. Завершающая баллада You See Me Crying отходит от позитивного вайба всего альбома. Все песни хороши. Включаешь в любом состоянии и слушаешь.

My first listen from this album was “Big Ten Inch Record” over at my friend Damon Marco’s house. Even at the tender age of 11, I got the joke. My friends and I all thought it was the coolest song ever recorded and always made the effort to play it out of earshot of our parents. The rest of the album grew on us too. Two mega hits, a couple of closet classics and solid Rock n Roll throughout. The guitars on Round and Round have a Sweet Sabbath vibe. Also great that Run DMC originally thought the name of this band was “Toys in the Attic”… Easy ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The best Aerosmith record, hands down. Rocking, catchy, and it doesn't overstay its welcome. The real hits are divvied up throughout the album nicely so you're never left in a lull. Steven Tyler's vocals are top notch and probably the best they were in his tenure with the band. When I'm looking for quality rock, this is one of the albums I will always turn to.

Classic rock record, I had never heard big ten inch record before and that has a very different sound from their typical sound. More of 50s blues rock record. The always classic sweet emotion and walk this way are quintessential 70s rock songs. Round and Round has a heavier sound that I didn’t know Aerosmith did I like it

Actually really enjoyed this. Was cool to hear some earlier stuff from Aerosmith, as most of the Aerosmith songs I know came out in the mid-late 80s. Don't know how I feel about this version of Walk This Way. I don't really like the Run DMC version, but there's something about the production of that one that is more exciting than the original.

Very good album. Fun to revisit. Ten Inch Record is hilarious. No More No More is a great track. Then, of course, the hits are hits for a reason. Still not perfect though, the last track is particularly weak.

I've known this album for years, but only listened to a few tracks. This time I put the headphones on and listened to it all. Intensely. The well-known tracks are great and sound even better when listening so intensely. Walk this Way and Sweet Emotion are the two songs I knew. The rest were new to me. Toys in the Attic - Great start to the song. What a way to kick off the album. Uncle Salty - Loved it. Adam's Apple. ... She ate it... It was love at first bite! Cool. Walk this way - MEGA-Classic. Big Ten Inch Record - I like the groove! Now whip out your big ten-inch.... record. Sweet Emotion - Classic. Perfect. No More No More - It's alright.... You See Me Crying - I love Rock ballads. Steven Tyler's vulnerable side. Nice, not great, but nice way to end the album. Stand Out Tracks: Walk This Way Sweet Emotion Uncle Salty Big Ten Inch Record

Pretty good still. Love the songwriting, guitars. Steven Tyler has long been one of my favorite vocalists. It's a classic record but I think only their 2nd or 3rd best. Sweet Emotion and Walk This Way still hold up for me. Round and Round is randomly this heavy sounding song thrown into the record that I always forget about. Uncle Salty bangs too. 7/10

A lot of it sounds the same. Big Ten Inch Record easily the worst track on here. Solos are terrible, except the one to end No More No More. I like the vocals and think they fit the music well. Compared to other Aerosmith I've heard, this is definitely some of the more ambitious stuff from them. The vocals are very badly mixed on Round and Round, it has some great riffs though. Nice outro track in You See Me Crying, a great mix of strings, guitars, piano, and brass. The really cringy vocals around midway degrade the track a bit though.

Stylistically "Big Ten Inch Record" was jarring both for the lyrics and the sound. It's like someone plunked a Jive song down in the middle of a rock/blues album. Turns out there is a reason it doesn't sound like the rest of the album, it was a cover.

I don’t know that I’ve ever listened to this album all the way through, but it’s pretty great. 70s Aerosmith checks a lot of boxes for the time. It’s still blues-heavy like the Stones (complete with horns and harmonicas), but they also stand right up with other psychedelic/glam rock bands (a la Sweet Emotion). Plus, you can hear the beginnings of 80s hair bands, power ballads, and heavy metal. I love albums like this - you can hear where it came from and where it’s going.

So happy to know that Aerosmith didn't always suck super hard. They were a scrappy and hungry rock band once. Cool! It's like all the things about Aerosmith are here, just toned down and tasteful. Never in my life did I think I'd be throwing a 4/5 down for the 'smith! Also, "Walk this Way" is such a jam. I love it.

It is not unusual to hear an album and either wait for it to get good, or skip to the favorite songs. This album is no exception, up and to the point "Walk This Way" is reached, Aerosmith is a hard rocking chore to get through and perhaps that is what lends the song its dominating popularity for how sweet of a reward it is to have gotten there at all. Small break in between, "Sweet Emotion" is on deck and from there whatever Aerosmith desires one had has been likely satiated without so much as a thought to the rest of the album. The review may seem indifferent or negative, so for the sake of objectivity be reminded that it is not often that an album produces two immensely popular tracks that stand on their own. Unless one is an Aerosmith fan, it is not likely that the radio listener even knows that both songs came from the same album, nor would they know that it was from 1975. Fast forward to the 90s, Aerosmith achieved an unlikely popularity and relevance again having followed the formula that "Walk This Way" and "Sweet Emotion" set forth, one can certainly trace the lineage of their popularity back to this album.

Very surprised. There really isn't any filler on this album. Even Uncle Salty, Adam's Apple, No More No More, and Round and Round... they all hold their own. The openings for Sweet Emotion and Walk This Way are creative and impactful. Toys in the Attic is the only song i could pass on, mostly because i like R.E.M.'s cover of it better. Even the ballad is solid. Found this really enjoyable rock record.

Saw them at the Texxas Jam in 87, when the lineup was Tesla, Poison, Whitesnake, Aerosmith, and the headliner, Boston. The vendors were selling t-shirts that had misspelled "Poisson". Maybe they were into fish. Who knows? They also misspelled Texas... When Aerosmith played their set, they were so electric everyone forgot the headliner was yet to take the stage. And when they played Walk This Way... well, it was Texas heat times 25. Boston was touring in support of Third Stage, but I'm sure it was the turning point of one Boston band overtaking another band out of Boston... on their way to making it big.

Pros: - Yet another album I have not heard from start to end. I will probably stop mentioning that since it's becoming common. - It's more like in-your-face rock than i remember. I like the energy shift from the first track into the second track. I'm really big on the idea that a good album should have an upbeat song for it's first or second track - Amazingly crisp production. Guess I've never heard "walk this way" on nice speakers/headphones but WOW is it crisp. Cons: Misc:

A fun, unpretentious rock album. The first half dips into blues and country, and the second half is more musically ambitious. In the past I haven't thought much of Aerosmith but I was impressed by how comfortably they slip in and out of styles. The big hits "Walk This Way" and "Sweet Emotion" are the clear standouts but I also enjoyed the heavy metal crunch of "Round and Round." It's a first-rate Led Zeppelin knock-off. And "You See Me Crying" is an excellent example of that blown-out string-accompanied 70's drama. Aerosmith don't seem to take themselves too seriously, which adds to their appeal for me. I rolled my eyes at "Big Ten Inch Record," but was surprised to learn that it's a cover of a song from 1952! (The original by Bull Moose Jackson is just as silly.) So Aerosmith aren't just goofy horndogs, they're also scholars of goofy horndogs past!

Ok upfront. I didn't think I was going to like this but its pretty ace. Inventive, it grooves, 2 classics and not a duff track amongst the rest. Solid 4. The rhythm is tight and driving and the songs are diverse but do work as a coherent album. Overall I will play this again and is the ultimate test of a 4 album.

Pleasantly surprised at quite a lot of this - Clearly finding their sound but I prefer a lot of the routes they went down on this album to some of the more tired stuff that they come out with later. A lot of this wouldn't sound out of place on a 90s album (and probably influenced a lot). Great energy and musicality. A couple of cringey bits, but you'll always get that with a band like this.

Truly gone fishing. My only other Aerosmith experience was playing that truck sex album and saying "this fucking sucks", so pleasantly surprised with this one. A fun record. Has those two songs everybody's heard before, has a song about the singer's massive schlong and having a metric ton of sex, has a song that makes you go "Wait hold on, who turned on Led Zeppelin?" Am I talking about this album or literally any other rock album from 1975? Who cares. I still enjoyed it.

Premier album de hard rock! L’album est très bon du début à la fin. Il n’y a aucun moment de flottement et se termine avec une superbe balade Le son est top, la voix de Steven Tyler surpuissante, les guitares super propres et les riffs super classes. On peut noter que la production a très bien vieilli pour un album de plus de 50 ans. Walked this way est toujours une aussi bonne chanson et j’ai découvert d’autres très bonnes chansons d’Aerosmith. Conclusion: très bonne album, j’en redemande. 4.5

Here we go, the big Aerosmith album that I know I asked for when we got Rocks. Of course I dig this one more, both for "Walk this Way" and "Sweet Emotion." "Sweet Emotion" is just a perfectly constructed song in my opinion, starting out so smooth and atmospheric and then settling into a genuine riff groove before bringing us back to that sweet chorus each time. Most all of the tracks on here are solid too, but that one's really special to me. I know this is one of those albums I used to throw on Dad's turntable in the basement. It's a great album folks. Favorite tracks: Sweet Emotion, Walk This Way, Toys in the Attic, You See Me Crying. Album art: Really really love this one, I'd say it's iconic. The big Aerosmith one for sure. The warmth of the brown border and orange font fits nicely with the toybox scene. One of those covers I could just look at and admire for a minute or two, the art is just really cool. 4/5
