7. 'Done With Mirrors'
Most people learned that Joe Perry was back with Aerosmith when Run-DMC's "Walk This Way" exploded in the summer of 1986. But the classic Aerosmith lineup actually came together the previous year to record Done With Mirrors. The group got off drugs for the album and made peace with Joe Perry and Brad Whitford. "Let the Music Do The Talking" and "Shela" were minor rock hits, but the album mostly stiffed and today many in the group say it's one of its weaker efforts. Still, it paved the way for the remarkable comeback that truly began the next year.
