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.

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.

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

Cool album! Every track feels unique and special. I'd previously only heard Aerosmiths hits, but that should include this entire album. The only weakness I feel the album has is the opening title track. It feels a little uninspired imo. Otherwise a VERY solid release.

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 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

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.

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.

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!

Rock N Roll chops! 2 rock masterpieces with Walk this Way and Sweet Emotion. The rest of the album is pedestrian bar band blues. Steven Tyler has a great rock n roll voice. The final track of the album seemed to be a blueprint for their ballad hits they went on to have 30 years later.

Aerosmith, to me, is the very definition of a middle of the road band. They have some pretty memorable songs but just a lot that that is either bad or just pretty forgettable. Aside from Walk this Way and Sweet Emotion and maybe the title track Toys in the Attic, the rest of this just felt like filler. As a whole this album would probably be a 2.5 but I’ll round up for those two songs which are rightfully all timers

The two songs that became famous - “sweet emotion” and “walk this way” - were the right ones. Especially “sweet emotion.” They’re legitimately great rock songs and sound totally different than everything else on the album. The rest of the album is kinda pedestrian guitar rock, with the exception of “big ten inch record,” which is just freaking awful and filled with bad sexual double entendres, to boot. “You See Me Crying” is foreshadowing of the absolute garbage that Aerosmith would put out in the 90’s.

This is how Blues Rock should sound: hyperactive riffs and smoked-out vocals trading blows; guitar licks lapping up your thighs like the sea before you pluck up the courage to dunk your rude bits; lyrics lamenting loves lost.

El disco no es nada malo y representa muy bien esa era de Aerosmith en la que todavía Steven Tyler se medía con el falsete y todavía no eran la banda de los videos con morras guapas. Pero me pasa como a Capser con los discos de Queen: el de éxitos, con sus 33 rolas, es una maravilla y lo escucho feliz; en cambio los discos individuales no me provocan lo mismo. Más allá de las obvias (Walk This Way y Sweet Emotion) me gustan mucho Toys In The Attic y Big Ten Inch Record.

Uno de los poquísimos discos de Aerosmith que ubicaba; varios sencillos clásicos muy buenos que todo mundo conoce y... varias canciones... estándar, me agrada que en general tienen un sonido algo crudo y creo esta debe haber sido su mejor etapa en cuanto a creatividad y productividad, pero fuera de esas cuantas canciones brillantes es una banda que nunca me ha llamado a adentrarme y de nueva cuenta escuchar todo el disco me deja igual. Buena música que tiene su lugar pero en cuanto a rock setentero no son mi máximo y ese grueso de canciones se me hacen un poco olvidables.

I like to tease and roll my eyes at Aerosmith because I think the band and a lot of their hits have been overplayed and overrated, but damn the hard blues rock groove to open the album was killer! Truly unfortunate they let that energy die with Uncle Salty right after. I am still sick of Walk This Way, but it's groove is undeniable. || The lyrics are wildly, unabashedly horny throughout (esp big 10 inch record lol) which tracks with the era but is also more unsettling now considering some of Stephen Tyler's more salacious and predatory history (look up Julia Holcomb). || A few real good stand out songs and riffs make up for some filler. 3.5. I would round up to 4, but I already rated another Aerosmith album (Pump) a 5, and I don't think this album adds anything to the list that Pump doesn't.

So this album has two of the best rock songs ever written (Walk This Way and Sweet Emotion, as if there any doubt) and then some other songs. With the exception of 10 Inch Record, none of them are terrible - even the aforementioned is an amusing music hall pastiche. But the rest is just holding for the best bits.

"Toys in the Attic" is very much carried by "Walk This Way" and "Sweet Emotion." I am so used to the Run DMC version that the original "Walk This Way" sounds a little weird, but "Sweet Emotion" is a six-star absolute classic. However, these two hits are not enough to carry the album to a more re-listenable level. "Big Ten Inch Record" is funny, in a "should I be bothered by this" kind of way, but the one pleasant standout was "Round and Round," with a grunge metal edge that could have been a Soundgarden inspiration... it was bizarre to follow that up with the Elton John-ish lead-in of "You See Me Crying." (Well... it turns out "Big Ten Inch Record" is a cover of a Bull Moose Jackson song from 1952. Jackson's other songs include "I Want a Bowlegged Woman." I am now half-way between appreciating it more for its full context and appreciating it less for another case of white rockers appropriating a black musicians song.)

It's only as good as its weakest link. I could've listened to this a couple times more but then I heard ST talking about his "big" 10-inch... I'm no penis expert but I think Long Dong Silver and John Holmes were bigger than ten inches. I had enjoyed it up to that point, but if I'm going to listen to a dick song, it'd be this stellar piece of art: https://youtu.be/bbJDjNLzv8U Thankfully, Sweet Emotion followed that which has got to be one of the best tracks in classic rock. All in all, I liked most of this album, but had to deduct a star for the cockiness.

I like Aerosmith well enough so was happy to see this was today's album. When it got going though I found I wasn't enjoying it too much. Very jangly guitars, the first 3 songs were all just not doing it for me. Walk This Way and Sweet Emotion are obviously great songs and was nice to have them in the list, 10 Inch Record is a weird ragtime tune with not at all subtle innuendo. I did like No More No More, and Round and Round. Very up and down album, just couldn't grab me but had some solid moments in there.

In terms of Aerosmith albums, this is a strong candidate for their best. Least filler and fairly consistent. But that doesn't mean any of the songs are anything to write home about. "Walk This Way" and "Sweet Emotion" are well-deserved hits, and I'm glad they were re-popularized by Run-DMC, they're catchy and loud. The other tracks are mostly decent... it's polished and coordinated, but dull and uneventful. Their influences are very obvious. It's pretty safe blues rock mixed in with glam rock. They have hooks and riffs that stick out to any listener in all their songs. It's very much popular and riding on the wave of success of their predecessors. It's no surprise that their comeback in the late 80s was modeled on the very same concepts.

Hey ! I got this CD at home. It's nice somehow, probably one of Aerosmith's best albums. It's got the original version of "Rock This Way" in it. The thing is, should Aerosmith be included in a list of 1001 essential albums to listen to? No. And this here is why I won't say anything further about this record. Please, Dimery and associates, check your priorities a little. You need room for genuinely great or moving or grounsbreaking albums. You can't waste it like this. Number of albums left to review or listen to : more than 900, I've temporarily lost count here. Number of essential listens: more than a third so far. Number of albums I *might* include as essential listens: a quarter so far. Number of albums I *won't* consider as essential listen: more than a third so far (including this one)

Aerosmith was the first band that I ever fell (briefly) in love with, so it's weird to reflect on their early career now that I've decidedly lost interest in the band that I was so infatuated with in the early-mid 90s. This is much more straightforward blues rock than I would have anticipated. Very much of its time and not showing many of the elements that would define their style in the 80s and 90s. Walk This Way is a notable exception, which is appropriate since that sound would kick start their success in the 80s. Sweet Emotion is another highlight of the album that sounds more like 80s Aerosmith. The rest of the album sucks ass and you can quote me on that (my name is Bill Gates) 3/5 and the two good songs on this album are pulling a lot of weight

Fairly generic 70s rock and roll. Wouldn't listen again. Steven Tyler had a better voice back then, less rasping

Poor timing with some bleak allegations against Steven Tyler, but got to #TrustTheProcess. Listened all the way... passed me by a bit.

Guess I didn’t save that lay on about the motorcycle and the road. It’s okay, the songs rate all I need to remember. These songs were in Armageddon. A pretty good album for a half an hour. Not all my cup of tea but songs I can listen to.

A record breaking album when it comes to blandness and lack of inspiration

This fucking sucked to be honest. There was nothing interesting or enjoyable about it. Not sure why it is on this list. 2 stars.

I listened to this album once after finding R.E.M.'s cover of the title track. Many "top album" lists of the 70s include this record. This album is a solid example of the best musicianship from the band. My favorite track by Aerosmith ("Sweet Emotion") is on this album. I have heard at least one other album in full from Aerosmith, and a variety of their singles. The music on the album is good, but I can't seem to get past the lyrics that I know or my suspicions of what may be in the lyrics that I don't know. Repeated exposure to Steven Tyler further cements his place in my mind as a creep -ick. The music gets 4 stars, but the album as a whole gets 2.

Its kind of difficult to judge this one as I didnt grow up with it or listen to it as an album. walk this way and sweet emotion are obvious hits but the rest dont even sound like they belong on the same album. very tough to grade, if i can give the beatles a 2, then i can with this too.

Bon gros rock qui tâche très facile, quasiment aucune prise de risque. La production est agréable (encore heureux). Les mélodies et titres sont très oubliables et oubliés, mis à part le riff the walk this way. Sweet emotions intro/refrain sympa pourquoi le gacher avec ces riffs de bourrin sans aucune âme sur le reste de la chanson. Il ne faudrait quand même pas essayer d'être original et trop s'eloigner d'un bon vieux rock qui tâche. Qu'est-ce qu'on se fait chier, je retourne écouter Led Zep et Van Halen. Je mets quand même 2/5 parce que c'est pas désagrêable non plus.

Fun at times, sure. And Sweet Emotion is a bumping track. But overall just ok.

My first impression is that I know why they didn't make an impression in Oz. We had so many bands that knew how to rock. First two tracks - meh. A little bit of life in the third, but I'm still struggling to stay awake. "Walk This Way" sounded much better in 1986. Maybe it's the production, because there are some good songs trying to get out, but it sounds pretty pedestrian except for "Round and Round," which is good rock.

Another album that furthers my newfound understanding that on the whole, not that into Aerosmith outside of the handful of tracks I really like. One of them, 'Walk This Way', is here but nothing else here is something I'd choose to listen to again. Wouldn't go out of the way to turn off but would fully support the decision to switch to something else.

I'm confused why this album is on the list. This was released ten or twelve years before any of Aerosmith's popular albums. The only thing this album has going for it is the original version of "Walk This Way", but even that isn't anywhere near as good as the Cameo version.

back in the 70s, steven tyler fucked an underaged groupie, and proceeded to literally adopt her as his legal daughter so he could keep fucking this child. he can stuff his big ten inch up his own ass for all i care.
