Great record, but


Toys in the attic, one of the best records from the 1970s to be sure. But 12 credits for 9 tracks - and all or nothing? Oofs - I miss the old days!

Aerosmith;s Breakthrough


Aerosmith broke through to the mainstream with this classic album, featuring the title track "Toys in the Attic", "Walk This Way", and "Sweet Emotion". "Round and Round" offers a glimpse of the next album "Rocks" and many giggled at the novelty classic "Big Ten Inch Record". "You See Me Crying" marks one of the earliest power ballads.

a great add to eMusic


I first bought this on 12” vinyl back in 1976. Rockin’ guitar sound, and crazy vocals. Edgy and sharp yet smooth, "Toys" was one of the superb rock albums of its day and still one of the best overall albums that the band ever released. “Toys” is truly a great add to eMusic, and worth every credit.

Track Order


This album illustrates that Aerosmith was smart from the beginning. The selection of the songs and the order they were put in the album is pure genius. This album has so many songs that stick in my head, I have to delete it from my mp3 player. It gets hard to concentrate when you've got "Uncle Salty" swimming around in your head for hours.

A Very Strong Album


I always liked this record even though it always struck me as stuffed full of filler materal --- but, it seemed that in the mid seventies they could do no wrong --- even their filler material rocked.

Six Degrees of Appetite for Destruction

By Chuck Eddy, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

They Say All Music Guide

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. – Stephen Thomas Erlewine
