EDITORS’ NOTES

This glam-tinted 1975 blockbuster fuses white-boy blues to gigantic hard-rock hooks, nodding to The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and The Rolling Stones. Guitar hero Joe Perry is Keith Richards to Steven Tyler’s Mick Jagger, and the frontman’s big voice and insouciant cool match his lyrical smarts. “Walk This Way” turns high-school angst into killer riffs and raps, and barnburner “No More No More” documents a too-much-too-soon life. Lighter-hoister “You See Me Crying” shows Aerosmith’s sensitive side, the melodic “Sweet Emotion” stomps, and blues cover “Big Ten Inch Record” honours their roots.
