Product Description


They'd soon crash, and hard, thanks to their own excesses. But Rocks captures Aerosmith at a crazily driven peak of creativity; anyone who heard it and continued to dismiss them as mere Stones clones was just being willful. This is blues rock cranked up to '70s stadium level, the sound of the Trans Am, or maybe the Porsches several of these guys (surprisingly) remember driving. The psychic battering they would succumb to on the next year's Draw the Line is foreshadowed in Joe Perry's "Combination," but he and Steven Tyler also celebrate the rock-star mythos on "Lick and a Promise." The party-fueled tension, the tension-fueled party. --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars Hey you...!! Read my review... Oct. 19 2005
Format:Audio CD
To sum up quickly, I really like this album, and can respect it as a bona-fide classic rock masterpiece, unlike a lot of some of the other mush that this band has produced. The guitar soloing in Nobody's Fault remains as one of my many favorites, 22 yrs after it was released. This album was, from my perch on the fence, from an era when Areosmith were a lot more concerned with tightly wrapped rock songs than they were in later years, as I find that they are such a corporate type entity today, kinda like Kiss. In closing, of all the albums these guys have put out over the years, this is probably the one that most typifies them, from an era when rock and roll was not so........stagnant. Some of the drivel on the radio today insults my musical intelligence, given how many times the same chords have been recycled into the same repetitive lyrics.
So, get to know Martin.......Martin up, that is, and buy this album if you enjoy this band or seventies rock in general. You really can't mess up with this one..I swear, the outro solo of Nobody's Fault is some of the most "in the pocket" guitar playing I have ever heard...Hendrix could not have been more connected.
later..(places earphones back on head).

Definaetly a brilliant album from, "The Bad Boys Of Boston". I would say this is their best album ever. Sure it may not have big hits like "Toys In The Attic" does, but it has a whole lotta' gems, that most of ya' fella's need to check out!.
1. Back In The Saddle 10/10- Just another lusty cowboy song. A really great opener like, "Toys In The Attic". With Joe goin' on 6 string bass, and Steven's amazin' ability to make his voice go higher, and higher everytime, makes it a classic.
2. Last Child 9/10- Some really great guitar work by Brad Whitford. Such a funky song, I just love it.
3. Rats In The Cellar 10/10- One of my most favorites on this album. A really fast tune, that just vomits anything dark as the song.
4. Combination 10/10- They're kinda' slow on this one, and like "Rats In The Cellar", this is another dark song too. Its about Joe Perry, and his addictions in the Rock N' Roll life. Probally my most favorite on this album. I would say this is Joe, and Brad's most heaviest riff they've ever made. A legendary performance.
5. Sick As A Dog 9/10- A really great ballad by these boy's. Its the kind of song that would grab your heart, and squeeze all the problems out of it, and make ya' have a wonderful time. A great song, it is
6. Nobody's Fault 10/10- A really great song, and once again; Very great guitar work by, Brad Whitford. Heaviest song on the album. I think its kind of a mix between Heavy Metal/ Rock N' Roll. Truly a masterpiece.
7. Get The Lead Out 8/10- Kind of a bluesy tune. Its makes ya' wanna' groove, just like when you're listenin' to "Last Child".
8. Lick And A Promise 10/10- Its about goin' out on stage, and winnin' the crowd, with your performance.

At a time when Aerosmith was establishing themselves as one of the most prominent bands of all time, they were beginning to sink deeper into a void of hard drugs that would eventually nearly disintegrate the group. 1976's Rocks, the group's fourth album, captured the darkness of the time while also maintaining everything we all knew and loved about the group. From the first two tracks on the album, it had a completely different feel than any other Aerosmith album in the past or future ever would.
The unique opening riff of "Back in the Saddle" and the despairing melodies at the beginning of "Last Child" would only slightly foreshadow what to expect on the rest of the disc. "Rats in the Cellar" kicked up the speed of the album, before slowing down a bit for "Combination," which included a Joe Perry contribution on lead vocals, and the heart-wrenching "Sick As A Dog." Then came quite possibly the heaviest Aerosmith track ever, "Nobody's Fault," which is also Joey Kramer's personal favorite Aero track of all time. Sadly, on most of these tracks you can literally hear the drugs, which just makes the record that more tragic. Towards the end of Rocks, classic Aerosmith is back in full force, but the album as a whole is like falling into a downward spiral in which you cannot escape until the power ballad "Home Tonight" closes out the album and slowly pulls the needle out of your arm.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Creative Peak of the Boston Bad Boys... June 2 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
...is,and sure as hell,Rocks.Who knows what direction they would have gone after this album?Guess we will never know due to the band's drug abuse problems which led to their demise in the 70s.But on a lighter note,they sure did go out with one hell of a bang.It's all here:hard rock,blues rock,funk rock,tones of heavy metal,and the infamous trademark ballad.Whether they were stoned on every drug imaginable or not,they were onto something real monumental with this album.Tracks like "Back In The Saddle","Rats In The Cellar",and "Nobody's Fault" spell out INSANE,FAST PACED,HEAD BANGIN',HARD ROCK and are in my opinion,the true gems of this superb effort.The vocals:loud,rapid,and menacing.The sound:let's just say joe perry was walking the thin line between blues infested rock and heavy metal with these lightning paced,neck-thrashing riffs.These songs just make you wonder what the music would be like if the band travelled down this road which would eventually become what we know as heavy metal.Other tracks of note include "Last Child" and "Get The Lead Out".Influences of blues and funk are evident here fused with Kramer's rhythmic drumming and perry and whitford's combination axe-work,simply brilliant songs."Home Tonight" is a ballad,however this is no "Angel" or "Crazy".Tyler's vocals are top-notch here.The track still maintains that hard rock sound,unlike the latter day ballads of the group which don't surpass this one by a long shot.Excellent closer to the album as well.The 70s brought forth Aerosmith's greatest albums by far.
