Mine is "Get Your Wings" (with "Rocks" being a close second)
Rocks. Followed by Get your wings. Two "must haves" in any guitarists ipods.
Rocks and pump...I also really like nine lives a lot. Toys as well.
The 1st one.
Rocks by far... I love everything up to, and including "night in the ruts."
Rocks is #1 for me.
2nd is either toys or get your wings. Both great, can't pick one.
Toys In The Attic followed by Rocks. That's a pretty solid chronological 1-2 punch, too, innit?
Debut was great and Toys as well ... hard to pick between those first 4 albums, but Wings gets the nod!
Rocks and Aerosmith
Draw The Line simply because Kings & Queens is Aerosmith's best song.
There is 'Rocks' and then there's everything else except for anything that came out after 1978. lol
Rock in a Hard Place
Honkin' on Bobo.
The first one. Because that is how I remember them sounding when they were a local Boston band.
sonically it seems sort of grungy and live sounding whereas Toys is more studio-clean IMO.
Seems you could hear and feel the stronger drug use coming through the speakers. Seems there was a cycle with those classic rock bands where the drugs helped for a while and then they started hurting. You could sort of feel the heroin influence on rocks to where it was a little grungier than Toys. The drugs were there influencing but they hadnt taken a strong toll yet.
Then on subsequent albums the drugs took a stronger toll and now instead of helping they hurt and the songwriting etc went downhill a bit
Rocks followed by Toys
