Ranking 70's Aerosmith

I've been revisiting Aerosmith's 70's albums as I'd only heard Rocks and Toys In The Attic up until recently, with my main intro to the band being Pump and Get A Grip. When I was younger I preferred that era of the band, but now I think their 1970's stuff is absolutely unbeatable. So I thought I'd rank them in the order I prefer them. Studio albums only, not the live bootleg:

1: Rocks - Simply one of the greatest albums EVER!!

2: Toys In The Attic - Very close decision, but there's a harder rocking, darker feel about Rocks that just wins out.

3: Get Your Wings - When they first found their sound. Awesome - all killer no filler.

4: Night In The Ruts - I've heard some negative things about this one, but it's very underrated and surprisingly good considering how messed up they were at the time.

5: Debut - There are a couple of classics on this - Dream On and Mama Kin - but they hadn't found their voice yet. Still a great blues rock record anyway.

6: Draw The Line - Some good stuff but the one where you can really hear the sound of a band who are completely wasted. Quite a disappointing follow up to Rocks really.

What do others reckon?


Stanley Kubrick was hired to fake the moon landing, but due to his perfectionism he made them film it on location. On the moon.
