Product Description

Amazon.ca

Originally released in 1975, this was Aerosmith's breakout recording. Listeners only familiar with their more recent, post-comeback material may be surprised; like their other albums from the 1970s, Toys has a strong blues inflection, as indicated by their cover of "Big Ten Inch Record," which also shows that Aerosmith has never lacked raunchiness or innuendo. There's also the original (pre-Run-D.M.C.) version of "Walk This Way," and the classic "Sweet Emotion." This is classic Aerosmith at its gritty, streetwise best; they may have been derivative, but it really doesn't matter, then or now: it's all in good fun. --Genevieve Williams

Product Description

The boys from Boston have shifted 8 million copies of this rock classic in the US alone. Includes Rock this Way; Sweet Emotion; No More No More; the title track and more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great work, albeit not a masterpiece Sept. 14 2003
By Stretch
Format:Audio CD
To enjoys 70's and 80'S Aerosmith you must cleanse your mind of all preconceived notions of what this once mighty band has now become.
Yeah I know that's probably easier said than done. Especially coming from me as a Native Bostonian. I used to idolize these guys, I had the poster on the wall, and wore my headband and used to prance around the room pretending I was Steven Tyler.
There were other Ballsy, Thuggish bands in the 70's but none of them were doing Blues Rock the way Aerosmith were.
The cover Art is nice. Probably the best the band put out up to that point. The illustration of toys coming to life makes your imagination "Jog" so to speak, I love the Froggy Doll, being assisted by the Elephant figurine, and up top you got the Teddy Bear keeping watch, possibly guarding the locked treasure chest from the Baby orchestrating a plan via passing the keys up.
I'm reviewing my Vinyl LP Copy of "Toys in the Attic". Back then there weren't CD'S and Pull-Out liner notes so I can't say how good those would look, on the back of my LP Jacket theres neccesary Track Listing and who played what, plus a Good Photo of the band posing in the attack.
The opening title track is a mean and fast-paced rocker. The Chorus has a nice echoing effect.
"Uncle Salty" has always been my least favorite track on the album, though to my benefit it's right near the beginning to see the glass half full. To sum it up, I always found "Uncle Salty to be rather boring and is not up to par with the other 8 tracks.
"Adam's Apple" clearly shows these guys were influenced by the Stones. Though Aerosmith one uped them on this song by incorporating a Catchy Groove into the mix.
Next up is the Classic Rock Staple "Walk this Way", Over a decade later it was re-recorded with the Rap Group Run DMC.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Defining Moment For Aerosmith Aug. 5 2011
By Tommy Skylar TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The band's self-titled debut album (1973) showed great potential for a young hungry band. Get Your Wings (1974) expended on that a little and developed more of the classic trademark Aerosmith sound. Toys In The Attic (1975) is where they made it big and was a big success for the band as well as a turning point in Aerosmith's career. Toys In The Attic feature some of Aerosmith's more popular songs, especially two track in particular that comes to mind: "Walk This Way" and "Sweet Emotion" who have been perhaps overplayed by radios almost everywhere. They're great songs and Aerosmith classics but there's more to Toys than just those two songs. The band came up with some of their best material for Toys and it's a shining moment in the band's lengthy career and one that is certainly a contender for the title of best Aerosmith album. Toys is very much where Aerosmith became Aerosmith and this is where they claimed the title of America's greatest rock `n' roll band.

The title track opens the album with that distinct Aerosmith guitar sound. An edgy rocker that gets the album off to a terrific start. "Uncle Salty" is a more melodic song, slower paced with some interesting time changes. Features some great guitar work and the rhythm section is very tight, excellent song."Walk This Way" doesn't need an introduction, it's pretty safe to say that if you ever across a classic rock station on the radio you've heard this one before. One of Aerosmith's most famous and quintessential tracks, it got me right from the beginning the first time I heard and still manages to grab me every time I hear it. Run DMC made a version of it years later but I much prefer the original, memorable and classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the "first four" albums May 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
Toys was released after "Aerosmith" and "Get Your Wings" and before "Rocks." If you are an early Aerosmith fan (ie-the first four albums), this has to go into your collection, but I wouldn't necessarily put it there first.
The really great songs include "Walk This Way" which all us white guys picked up on back when it was released, although the RUN-DMC video was a scream. After "Dream On" from the first album, this probably defines Aerosmith for most people. A great fun song it is. Everyone in the band is at their best.
Next up is "Big Ten Inch Record." Sorry teenie boppers, but Aerosmith has always had a blues side to them. This one just has a few funny lyrics. It was quite disturbing to my parents when I was a teenager. Nevertheless, well done, and a little tongue in cheek for Steven Tyler.
Right up next is probably the best produced song on the CD: "Sweet Emotion." This one happened to never really get my attention, but it all my friends' attention. Looking back, while I think it is a little over-produced song, Tom Hamilton lays down a very nice groove on the song, which turns out to be the basis for the whole song.
There aren't any BAD songs on this album, but only three really sound special to me, but hey, the first four Aerosmith albums are simply an Aerosmith fan's must have. This one sounds a little over-produced, but this is the real Aerosmith.
I recommend the other three first albums "Aerosmith," "Get Your Wings" and "Rocks" to go with this. Then you will understand their latest "Honkin' on Bobo." Until then, you will know Aerosmith as just a pretty good rock and roll band.
