Aerosmith ~ Draw The Line

Customer Reviews

Real fans of AEROSMITH will enjoy this album.
Martin Lemos
This was an album from a band that supposedly thought they could throw anything out there and the public would eat it up.
James F. Biles
I love just about every song on it but Bright Light Fright.
E. Bukowski

I was 16 when this album was originally released in the very cold winter of 1977. At the time there was no MTV, no videos, nothing. If you wanted to see a band you had to go see them live, if you were lucky enough. We didn't know the band was having major drug problems, we didn't care. We were much too caught up in our own adolescent crazyness. It is just too easy to speak in hindsight and criticize this album based on recent magazine articles or VH1 programs. The simple fact is this: This album kicked ass in 1977, and it kicks ass today. We played it to pieces. Instead of rating it on the personal problems that the band was having, rate it against the crap that has come out since.

Coming off their best two albums, "Draw the Line" released in 1977 is not a complete disappointment. As is the case with most recordings, the ones that follow masterpieces tend to be underrated. The lifestyle that Aerosmith had chosen was beginning to show it's effects on the band creatively but by no means were they done yet.

The CD opens with the riff-roaring "Draw the Line" and the rocking "I Wanna Know Why" before slipping into the average "Critical Mass". "Get it Up" may be one of the funkiest tunes they had done up to this point and the punkish Joe Perry sung "Bright Light Fright" is quite interesting.

The second half opens with the classic "Kings and Queens" and along with the title track represents classic Aerosmith in the best sense. A few average rockers follow, "The Hand That Feeds" and "Sight For Sore Eyes" before closing with the Arnold penned blues of "Milk Cow Blues".

Alhough not quite as good as it's two predecessors ("Toys in the Attic", "Rocks") "Draw the Line" finds Aerosmith running out of breath but still in the race. After this it was all downhill. Newcomers may want to avoid this as an introduction but if you're a fan of classic Aerosmith then this CD sounds GREAT turned up!

If only they could rock this hard today.

When I hear all of the bad reviews for "Draw the Line" I completely diasagree with them. The title track is pure hard rock with an attitude and great guitar by Perry. "Kings and Queens" is brilliant and is also one of my favorite Aerosmith songs .Their remake of "Milk Cow Blues" is fantastic cover. Other songs like "Critical Mass" and "Sight for Sore Eyes" are great songs with Steve Tyler's voice screechin' through it all (except for Joe Perry's first vocal appearance in "Bright Light Fright" which isn't bad at all). The only song that sticks out as only "o.k." happens to be "The Hand that Feeds," but 8 out of 9 sure isn't bad. "Draw the Line" might not have been ground-breaking like the two Aerosmith albums before this, but it sure is entertaining!!

When I hear all of the bad reviews for "Draw the Line" I completely diasagree with them. Sure, it may not be on the same line (no pun intended) with "Toys in the Attic" or "Rocks," but this album doesn't deserve all of this bad hype I hear about it. The title track is pure hard rock with an attitude and great guitar by Perry. "Kings and Queens" is brilliant and is also one of my favorite Aerosmith songs (with a LIMITED FEW songs I like more). Their remake of "Milk Cow Blues" is fantastic and is my favorite cover Aerosmith has ever done ("Walkin' the Dog" and "I'm Down" are close though). Other songs like "Critical Mass" and "Sight for Sore Eyes" are great songs with Steve Tyler's voice screechin' through it all (except for Joe Perry's first vocal appearance in "Bright Light Fright" which isn't bad at all). The only song that sticks out as only "o.k." happens to be "The Hand that Feeds," but 8 out of 9 sure isn't bad. "Draw the Line" might not have been ground-breaking like the two Aerosmith albums before this, but it sure is entertaining!!

By this time, the chemicals just weren't working so well anymore. The band's well-publicized bouts with drugs were having a noticeably negative effect on the band's songwriting, performances, and no doubt, their judgement.
While this record undoubtedly has strong points (the title cut and "Kings and Queens" are standouts), there's no escaping the fact that this release was a major disappointment after "Rocks". In that context, of course, there's only one way to go after that awesome achievement, and it's not "up".
But, hey, I'll take a mediocre, only occasionally great Aerosmith CD over the best from any of a host of faceless, attitude-driven, mad at the world, low slung pants-wearin', 10-month career arc, youngsters any day. (You'd better believe Kid Rock pays homage at the altar of Aero. This is appropriate.)
So there.

Format: Audio CD
This is a difficult album because it follows their two finest studio albums. Still, it's got a lot of good, a little so-so, and no bad. It's head and shoulders above the studio albums to follow, that's for sure. For one thing, it is one of the last to blend Tyler's vocals more solidly in with the rest of the music instead of making his screeches and such so prominent as they do in the decades to follow. It's nice to hear the band playing and not have it drowned out by Tyler.

The first five songs are relentless rock, including Perry's oddity, Bright Light Fright, a rough-edged number that must've left Joey Kramer sweat drenched. He literally pounds his kit from beginning to end. The other four are well done and include some all-time classic Tyler lines (who else incorporates Edgar Allen Poe in a rock number?) that make for great lyric deciphering. When the guy is on, he's damn good.

Kings and Queens is hit and miss for me, they are reaching a bit here, and while it is a noble effort, it doesn't ever work totally. The remaining songs are good efforts, and I think the closing cover of Milk Cow Blues is the gem of the whole album. Careening out of control at the end of the song, before culminating in a crashing finale, this sums up their career trajectory far better than a dozen Behind The Music specials.
