Best Aerosmith Albums

The Top Ten

1 Toys in the Attic

My god, toys in the attic kills! Toys in the attic kicks off the first song, then the rest come great specially sweet emotion, walk this way, and big ten inch record. You see me crying was a good way to end the album.

Such a CLASSIC ALBUM! Pump was the album that got me into Aerosmith, but his one REALLY got me into it. Although really, really overplayed, "walk this way" is a great song, and so are all the other ones... my favorites are "Toys In The Attic" and "Sweet Emotion. " this album shows just how ' awesome aerosmith really is!

Every single song on this album is great! Sweet Emotion is the best. This album's almost as great as a Zeppelin album (and that's hard for me to admit, as a die hard Led Zeppelin fan)!

2 Rocks

This album is not the casual rock radio album. It has one hit but it is not overplayed like "Walk This Way." Rats In The Cellar may be one of Aerosmith's best. Give this album a full listen before choosing toys. Much stronger record all the way through.

Rocks simply and absolutely represents the musical peak of aerosmith in the 70's so it should never be at second place after "Toys in the attic". I like toys very much but all of the songs in rocks are true gems, and superior compared to the ones in toys, They have more found their own sound with rocks.

"Rocks" is unquestionably their best album, with "Toys" a distant second.

Toys is a great Top 40 album, but Rocks out rocks it hands down! Every song is kick ass. My favorites in order. Nope! Can't do it. Each one is better than the other.

An album for the ages

3 Pump

The same level of high quality as Toys in the Attic's high points, the same consistency of material as Rocks, and the beautiful sound quality and variety of the eighties material? Pump is easily Aerosmith's best release.

Just a real feel good album, the fact that's its not the hard classic rock, early, before they started getting help song writing is irrelevant, when I stick pump on I can't help but groove to it, makes me smile, makes me dance

A classic. The Best Of album that doesn't include "Toys In the Attic" hits! Janie's Got a Gun is its best!

This album carried me through my high school days.

4 Get Your Wings

This should be third to Rocks and Toys, only because it contains hands down the best cover of any song ever covered. Train Kept a Rollin' may be their crowning jewel.

Come on listen to S.O.S. or Woman Of The World. Class A songs. Then of course you have Lord Of The Thighs and Pandora's Box, Two Classics. And The Big Hits. The Encore to every show, Train Kept A' Rollin and then the album starter, Same Old Song And Dance, the best horns section ever put in a rock song

It's a tough call to pick just one, but Lord of the Thighs is an awesome, underrated tune.

I simply cannot fathom how Get Your Wings is behind Pump, that album is yesterdays garbage compared to Get Your Wings. I'd suggest getting a copy and you'll understand why this is the best favorite Aerosmith album
1. Get Your Wings
2. Toys In The Attic
3. Rocks

5 Permanent Vacation

This album is very complete full of great songs, with magic touch or hangman jury and also dude looks like a lady, this album is a pleasure to listen through from beginning to end. A must have if you like Aerosmith

I vote for this album because it has my all time favorite Aerosmith song "Angel". Plus I love "ude (Looks Like a Lady)", "Hangman Jury", "Rag Doll" and others - Irina2932

I love this album! It has so many great songs such as Angel, Rag Doll, & Dude (Looks Like A Lady)!

The beginning of the Bon Jovi sound. Bad songs and production.

6 Aerosmith

This albums is their most underestimated one. All of the songs simply rock here. Listen to the different styles and tempos. Love it the most

Have to rate this number one. Brings back memories of first time I heard it (an 8-track tape) in the high school parking lot blasting from my Mustang Fastback.

I love this album. It's raw, Tyler's voice is great. One Way Street is one of their best. I also really like the next three, but this one is my favorite.

OH MY GOD! This is great. Great, great and great. Dream On is the most well-known song by the band, Make It and Movin' Out rocks too hard, they're almost perfect, Mama Kin was covered by Guns N' Roses, but I prefer Aerosmith's version. One Way Street is... Good, Good and Good. Walkin' The Dog is great as a cover, and the others... Meh... They're great!

7 Get a Grip

Known for three ballads Cryin', Crazy, and Amazing. It also has the hard rock hits Eat The Rich and Livin' On The Edge.

I grew up on this album. Livin' On The Edge is one of my favorite songs of all time, not that you'll go wrong with any on this one.

With classics such as fever and walk on down, this album kicks ass!

Livin' On The Edge is the best Aerosmith's song from the 90s... I don't like Amazing, I don't like Crazy, I don't like Cryin'
The title track is great, Eat The Rich is a classic

8 Night in the Ruts

Many people, including Rolling Stone, have rated this album as unfavorable, but I disagree. My father has this on a cd and a record album. I have listened to the cd hundreds of times and I love it. There is not a single track on the whole album that I don't like. It deserves a higher spot on the list. It's not a crappy album, it's a good album!

I think that ruts is way under rated for one thing every song on the record tears it up this was my era of music from no surprise to think about it, these songs just plain crank and this when they were messed up on all kinds of cocain an booze they ripped it up then they tear it up now crankin in brewer Maine.

Other than the lame Shirelles cover Walking in the Sand. This album really kicks ass.

Totally Underrated, Give it a Listen!

9 Draw the Line

It had a few good classic tunes, but other than that a very disappointing album.

Great cover but only a few good songs. Murky production plus Joe saved good songs for The Joe Perry Project.

I love this album! The cover is cool also...

Draw the line album and song are amazing, enough said - GuyInANateGrinder

10 Nine Lives

All the songs from this album are just great. The worst is Fallen Angels, but are the other songs rock: Nine Lives, Falling in Love (Is So Hard on the Knees), Hole in My Soul, Taste of India, Full Circle, Something's Gotta Give... - rock2metal

Most critics hated it, but it's nice to see that the fans love it. Truly is full of energy, and is very different from anything the band has recorded then and since.

This is one of their more head-banging albums and it's pretty good. When I was in middle school I had Nine Lives playing in my head almost all the time. It's killer!

Definitely my favourite and the one that introduced me to them. The self titled track was also in the intro to Dead or Alive 3

12 Done with Mirrors

This album deserves more credit. I have listened to the whole album on YouTube a few times and I love it. Totally Aerosmith! Anyone who would call this unfavorable doesn't know what they're talking about.

Truly believe this album should be top 5. Straight raw rock people have no idea about this album damn shame.

What Done With Mirrors? No way!
Yes! This album earns the number ten spot, because it was when Aerosmith got back together after the break up.

The lyrics are a little lacking.

13 Big Ones

Always cracks me up when people say "why is this album down here, it has all their best songs" when referring to compilation albums...if you can't answer that question you just don't get these type of polls

This has many great tracks, including some unreleased tracks. I have it and I love it!

Why is this down here? I also couldn't find A Little South of Sanity on here, so this is my choice. It has a lot of the best hits. Wow. O_o Just wow.

Another good collection of aerosmith

14 Rock in a Hard Place

Some awesome guitar riffs and some gutsy vocals from Tyler who was obviously chemically impaired. I loved the whole album. Much better than the ballad crap they put out later.

I think it's favorable if it's given a chance. I have it and I love it! My favorite songs on the album are Jailbait, Lightning Strikes, and Rock in a Hard Place (Cheshire Cat). Aerosmith is awesome!

Jailbait Is Great! I think it's a good album

This one is a funny album so many cool songs but ther thont really have a mening in the tekst. I like lightning strikes.

15 Tough Love: Best Of The Ballads

Never seen this before

Their mostly a Rock and Roll band, why ballads...BS

16 A Little South of Sanity

Bad recording

This is a good live album

17 Music From Another Dimension

Kinda disappointed in this album. Street Jesus and Beautiful are awesome songs. Legendary child is a decent song, but the rest isn't so great. Lover a lot, love X and the ballads are so cheesy and lame.. Nine lives is way better in my opinion

It was my first Aerosmith album and I love it! Just because they don't sound the same as they did in the 70's is alright there great no matter what.

Oh, Carrie Underwood with Aerosmith? I think they aren't a good band anymore? Just pop

Missed the mark. Tried to appeal to the Bon Jovi crowd. Bland.
