EDITORS’ NOTES

Aerosmith were one of the biggest hard-rock bands of the ‘70s and they did so with a personality as big as the arenas they packed. Singer Steven Tyler was the perfect, magnetic frontman while his band’s rhythm section of drummer Joey Kramer and bassist Tom Hamilton were the best-kept secret in the industry. Face it, tracks like “Toys In the Attic,” “Walk This Way” and “Sweet Emotion” swing with far more ferocity than most other hard rock bands of the era. Where most hard rock bands were content to plod and bludgeon, Aerosmith never forgot their R&B roots, whether it’s the cover of the old blues classic “Big Ten Inch Record” or the swinging groove of “Uncle Salty. “Round and Round” pushes towards the monolithic hard rock of their legendary Rocks album, while “You See Me Crying” proves Tyler could sit at the piano and turn a ballad. Guitarists Joe Perry and Brad Whitford provide Stones-like teamwork and their playing rattles with passion and inspiration.

Classic

I'll leave this one real simple. Aerosmith is one of the great American rock bands, and "Toys in the Attic" is a pure, unfiltered uncut shot of what their sound is. If you're out for something good that won't disappoint, this album is one of your best bets.

One of the Best....Ever

How many bands can boast that every song is a winner?? Few...Very few. You see me Crying and Walk this Way are incredible and now we have the Once Great Steven Tyler doing American Idol!! How to wreck all the good. Purchase this Album and love it.
