While not their strongest recording, Aerosmith's self-titled debut gave a taste of the musical path that the band, and much of the rest of hard rock, was to follow for the rest of the 1970s and well into the 1980s. Although the awkward social commentary of "Movin' Out" and the swinging cover of Rufus Thomas's "Walking the Dog" have largely been forgotten, two standards emerged from Aerosmith: "Dream On," a prototypical power ballad with its keyboards and string arrangement, and "Mama Kin," which contains one of the most recognizable riffs in hard-rock history. Though Aerosmith would record better albums--both before and after their drug-induced implosion--their debut serves as a kind of road map to much of post-'60s rock & roll. --Genevieve Williams

After two decades of not being quite sure what my opinion of Aerosmith was, I finally broke down and bought this CD two weeks ago.
I can't stop listening to it.
There are some odd things here--for example, how come "Make It" is so good, even though Joe Perry's guitar solo is not quite in tune and is totally out of time? Is he playing along with a different song? And who did the lousy overdubbed lead guitar on "Somebody"? It's played bad and edited even worse. And what's with the goofy intro to the great "Walkin' The Dog"?
The real revalation, after years of hearing nothing but talk of coke addictions and internal squabbling associated with Aerosmith, is how fun and downright optimistic this band can be. "Make It," "Dream On," even "Mama Kin," all sound to me like declarations of independence and musical freedom from Steven Tyler. In it's best moments, this album doesn't just rock; it SWINGS.
"Dream On" is pure magic--and inspired, too, because there is nothing else here with the same level of musical sophistication--and it hasn't been rendered impotent by radio overkill the way that contemporaries like "Stairway To Heaven" or "Smoke On The Water" were.
I'm shocked to find that this record is carried NOT by Joe Perry--most gorups of the genre lean so heavily on lead guitarists--but by by bassist Tom Hamilton and (I spent years trying to avoid saying these words) the GREAT Steven Tyler.
I've spent two weeks listening to this, two weeks searching for the word to describe Tylers vocals, and I keep coming back to my initial adjective: MUSCULAR.
My god the guy can sing. He makes me feel strong and macho just listening to him. Trust me, that's saying a lot.

Aerosmith has made great albums... Rocks, Toys in the Attic, Draw the Line, etc. They're all great... no doubt about that, but without their debut album, they might not have recieved that push they needed to be stars. This is a very raw and gritty album. If you want proof, listen to Steven Tyler's vocals. He never sounded like that again after Get Your Wings. Along with its importance, their debut album provides the listener with a barrage of catchy, bluesey rock. Aerosmith doesn't give up until you reach the end of the album.

1. Make It: Great opener, period. There is truly nothing wrong with this song. It's catchy and it rocks. 8.5 stars (out of ten.)

2. Somebody: The opening riff is original, the vocals soar above the istrumentals, and the guitar is killer. 8.5 stars.

3. Dream On: The only song that gains enough recognition it deserves. This is the second-definitive Aerosmith song, next to Walk This Way. Perfect. 10 stars.

4. One Way Street: An epic blues-rock bonanza. Love the guitar Love the harmonica. Love the vocals. Aw, heck, I love it all. 9 stars.

5. Mama Kin: Some of the best riffs Joe Perry ever made are displayed on this track. I'm so glad they added it to the latest greatest hits album (Oh Yeah!) 10 stars.

6. Write Me: One of their most underrated songs ever. The beat is rocking, and there isn't any better harmonica-wailing anywhere. It's a personal favorite of mine. 9 stars.

7. Movin Out: This is a very moody and out-of-place song here. It's not bad by a long shot. It just doesn't fit with all of the fast paced flurries the preceed it. It's still a keeper that I think would have been better on Get Your Wings. 8 stars.

8. Walkin' The Dog: One of their best cover songs.

This is my favorite Aerosmith album. Everything is just so good. I really don't think there is anything bad on this album. "Dream On" is probably the greatest rock ballad, ever. "Somebody" has a great solo. "Ony Way Street" and "Movin' Out" groove like nothing else.

Quite a statement there. As a growing up teenager learning to play guitar, this one continually sent me back practicing. I still don't have Dream On completely figured out!
For anyone's first album, for it to be this good is amazing. And indeed it is. Everything is pure Aerosmith. It seems like no producers or executives got in there way. This is the way Aerosmith should have always been recorded. They sound like a gritty, fighting for their careers, musicians that always made them sound their best.
There are a couple of well done covers, and some nice original blues and slight jazz songs here. To call out the best song, I've got to tell you that seven out of eight songs have to step forward, if you like this type of rock and roll.
This is an album that will make all you younger guys say, hey, with a little practice, I can get real close to playing this stuff. And you can. Just keep working on your guitar solos!
But this will definitely motivate you to pick up your axe and start playing. Good, well defined, basic, good sounding rock music that came from a garage, and still can. Difficult category of album to find.
Enjoy, and play your axe off!

Aerosmith's self titled debut gave fans a glimse of things to come. It's opening track "Make It" was the song they had been using to open shows as you can tell by the lyrics, "Good evening people welcome to the show". The next track "Somebody" was written by Tyler and one of his former bandmates when he was in a group called Chain Reaction. It's got great guitar lick from both Perry and Whitford. The song's highlight is a vocal/guitar harmony in the middle. The next track is a rock n' roll opus. "Dream On"( a song written by Tyler at the age of 17) has had as much if not more importance to the development of rock than Led Zeppelin's "Stairway To Heaven". "One Way Street" the band's next song has heavy jazz influences as well as heavy harmonica solos. Next, another classic, "Mama Kin", the first song Steven Tyler ever wrote, contains one of the most memorable guitar riffs in history thanks to Brad Whitford and the heavy rythym beats of bassist Tom Hamilton and Drummer Joey Kramer. In fact Steven believed in the song so much he had it's name tatooed on his arm. The next song "Write Me" is just your average aerosmith rocker. For anyone that's familar with their music "Write Me" is in the same stable as songs like "No More, No More" and "Chiquita". The following track, "Movin' Out", is the first Tyler/Perry songwriting combination. Done with mostly accoustic guitars, the song is great. Especially when the drums start to kick in. The final track is a cover song od the old Rufus Thomas, "Walkin' The Dog".
