Our Review

1975’s Toys in the Attic broke this Boston group commercially, while the follow-up, 1976’s Rocks, the band’s fourth studio album, cemented Aerosmith’s reputation as the era’s most formidable hard rock band. Not nearly as radio-friendly (Attic had the title track, “Walk This Way” and “Sweet Emotion” leading its charge), Rocks came out firing on all cylinders. The hard-charging “Back in the Saddle” opens things brilliantly with guitarists Joe Perry and Brad Whitford working terse, syncopated riffs behind the quick-lipped sass of lead singer Steven Tyler, who plays it funky (“Last Child,” “Rats in the Cellar”), streetwise (“Lick and a Promise”) and sentimental (“Home Tonight”), alluding throughout to the band’s bad habits that would eventually knock them out of commission by the end of the decade. The thick, epic harmonies of “Sick as a Dog,” the nod to the Rolling Stones with Joe Perry’s “Combination” and the quaking metal assault of “Nobody’s Fault” and “Get the Lead Out” provide solid evidence for Aerosmith’s deserved reign as ‘70s rock legends and top festival draws.

One of Their Best Albums - Finally on iTunes! (5 stars)
This is one of Aerosmith's best albums to date, period. Five stars, no questions asked. Personally, I'm not sure if it beats Toys In the Attic, but it definitely comes really darn close. You can't go wrong by buying this album. The tracks aren't available individually (as of 3/3/07), but you're not at a loss. I promise that you'll love the whole album, and there are truly no filler songs. The highest points of the album include, but are

One of the Greatest of all time (5 stars)
Easily one of the best rock albums ever made. One way to tell a great album is if all the songs on the track are awesome (not just the big hits). Rocks fits that description. After Toys In The Attic, how could a band pull off another great album or even a better one?! HIts such as "Back In the Saddle", "Last Child", and "Sick As a Dog" are some of Aerosmith's best work and other unknown hard rockin' songs

AMAZING (5 stars)
No wonder this album was Slash's Favorite album. With the killer vocals of Steve Tyler and the jammin power chords of Joe Perry This Album couldn't get any better. i highly reccoment last child, back in the saddle, sick as a dog, and lick and a promise.

Aerosmith was one of the most popular hard rock bands of the '70s, setting the style and sound of hard rock and heavy metal for the next two decades with their raunchy, bluesy swagger. The Boston-based quintet found the middle ground between the menace of the Rolling Stones and the campy, sleazy flamboyance of the New York...
