This is not my favorite album from Aerosmith (Rocks is) but it is their best if for no other reason that it gave us the classic Walk This Way a song which made them Superstars (Twice no less!). WTW's guitar riff is as recognizable as that of Cat Scratch Fever and Smoke On The Water, it is clearly a signature tune. I caught Aerosmith on the Just Push Play Tour this summer and the band played 5 songs from Toy's (Walk This Way, Uncle Salty, 10 Inch Record, Sweet Emotion and Toy's In The Attic) a good indication that after almost 30 years the band is still rightfully proud of this record that pushed them over the top. This album contains the song You See Me Crying which was a prelude to the power ballads they perfected in the 80's and 90's. Not as hard as Rocks but a cranker for sure, there is nothing like blasting WTW while driving on a sunday afternoon in my vintage American muscle car (79 Trans Am SE). If the Dallas Cowboy can call themselves America's Team then Aerosmit!h should be called America's band (even if KISS fans can make a good argument out of it). Aerosmith is to rock and roll what Ferrari is to sports cars. This album contains no duds and should be in every fan's collection.

Released in 1975,"Toys In The Attic" perfected Aerosmith's brand of Stonesy hard rock,R&B, and Led Zeppelin heaviness,thus giving the band its commercial breakthrough(it reached #11 on the Billboard album chart and sold 8 millon copies).The highlights are the super-funky "Walk This Way"(which was revived a decade later in a version by the rap trio Run-DMC,which featured Steven Tyler on vocals and Joe Perry on guitar),the grinding,lusty "Sweet Emotion",the catchy "No More No More",the punkish title track,the menacing "Round And Round",and the beautiful closing ballad "You See Me Crying",but there's simply not a weak cut to be found here.If I could summon one word for the 5.1 SACD mix it would be AWESOME!Listening and comparing the standard 16-bit CD with the multichannel SACD is like comparing early spring and summer.The ordinary CD sounds good,but it sounds flat,compressed and muddy compared to the SACD version.The latter sounds full,punchy,clear and tough,much like music itself.You never heard "Walk This Way" or "Sweet Emotion" until you heard them here!(Note:This will NOT play on your standard CD player.Sorry!)

I was recently saying to my wife, while watching clips of some recent Aerosmith live shows that, in spite of the direction they've gone in from the late 80s to the present, I'd like to go see them again. (I also asked her if she thought it would be possible to go for around $20. I must have paid somewhere between 10 and 20 bucks when I saw them during their glory days in the late 70s at Madison Square Garden, back when they were playing music like this. My wife was pretty sure that a ticket now costs quite a bit more.)

I got into these guys during my 1st two years in high school (1975-77), and I have loved high energy, heavy guitar driven, blues based rock bands ever since. And really, what can I say about this era of the Aerosmith story, and this particular recording, other than that it sounds now as good as it did way back then. And while Walk This Way, Toys in the Attic, & Sweet Emotion are the big hits from this (and have been covered by everyone from REM, Tommy Shaw, Tracii Guns, and Run DMC to the much more obscure Wolfie, and the Butchers, among others) and are excellent, they should not obscure the power of such less acknowledged rockers as Uncle Salty (featuring some tasteful guitar playing courtesy of Joe Perry and the underrated Brad Whitford) and Adam's Apple, in which Steven Tyler shows what a 70s rock god he was. Other songs here are fine. For example, No More No More has that kind of Rolling Stones boogie sound that Aerosmith do very well. Round and Round is very heavy, and kind of anticipates ths early 90s grunge era (a link one can hear through later bands like Die Kreuzen, Mother Love Bone, Alice in Chains, Screaming Trees, etc). You See Me Crying is what a power ballad should be.

This review is specifially for the surround-sound mix of this famous album by Aerosmith, I have never listened to the stereo mix in my life. That being said, I highly recommend this SACD for it's nice surround mix of some classic rock and roll music. The surround mix of Sweet Emotion is just awesome, and Walk This Way now comes alive in a way that shakes the whole house and puts you right in the middle of the song. If you have a nice surround sound SACD system, I would highly recommend this disc. But there is a WARNING: This disc is a single layer SACD, it will not play on a CD player.

This is the kind of 70s rock album that pretty much redeems all of the worst excesses of that decade. It's a collection of rock songs that really rock, that heave with sweaty bar band abandon and gin-soaked blues swagger, dripping with sleaze and mean excitement, with a few hazy ballads thrown in for balance. It's fun, it's crankable, and it rocks like a mother. I mean, this thing's got the gleefully sleazy "Walk This Way" AND the deathless rockstar anthem that is "Sweet Emotion," for cryin' out loud! It's also got the storming title track, and the beaten reveries of "No More No More" and "You See Me Crying." Plus, there's the sheer awesomeness of "Uncle Salty" and "Adam's Apple." Now there's a rock album!
