5.0 out of 5 stars Essential rock n' roll, 26 July 2001
This review is from: Toys In The Attic (Audio CD)
This record sees Aerosmith radically step out of the shadow of their two previous albums that were extremely flawed but pointed towards the brilliance that was to come. Toys ... brims full of riffs that will mesmerise and lift the spirits.
Every song on this album is absolute gold but the shiniest gems are Adam's Apple, Walk This Way and Sweet Emotion. Adam's Apple is Steven Tyler's unique re-telling of the classic Bible story, evolution, etc. Only he would have the tongue in cheek audacity to give a subject that has given philosophers and theologians grief for centuries the chorus, "She ate it/Lordy it was love at first bite!". Great music too. Walk This Way ... what a riff ... too good for words really. Sweet Emotion is just a rock classic. A great bass-heavy intro that breaks out into a funky song driven by Joe Perry's fantastic guitar.
No weaknesses. always fresh with every listen, get this album!

those first two were great! are you kidding? flawed? they were perfect for their time. this was a huge step up. but those two were monster hit albums for good reason. good riffs and hard rockin blues based fun. at least you like good music though.
