Aerosmith were at a creative peak when they recorded 1976's Rocks. Toys in the Attic finally showed the world this was a band worth taking seriously, but they wanted to prove they had more to offer. This was before drugs and ego took over, and they poured all their energies into crafting an absolute monster of an album. It doesn't relent from the opening notes of "Back in the Saddle" through "Home Tonight." It's the perfect marriage of Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones, but still something very original. They'd never again craft another album quite this perfect.
