Best Aerosmith Albums

The Top Ten
1 Toys in the Attic

Such a classic album! Pump was the album that got me into Aerosmith, but this 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!

This album is amazing! Considering that I'm a huge Def Leppard guy. Sweet Emotion starts, arguably, my favorite movie, Dazed and Confused. A band like Aerosmith will never happen again. Today's music is just too blah for me. Tyler and Perry rule!

2 Rocks

Toys in the Attic has two great hits (Walk This Way and Sweet Emotion) and two very popular songs among the fans (Toys in the Attic and You See Me Crying). The rest is good, but not as good and peculiar as those four. Rocks has no great hits like TITA, but it's a complete album. From Back in the Saddle to Home Tonight, each song has specific characteristics and feelings, and there are no bad songs on it.

Rocks simply and absolutely represents the musical peak of Aerosmith in the '70s, so it should never be in 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 found their own sound with Rocks.

3 Get Your Wings

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, which has the best horn section ever put in a rock song.

I simply cannot fathom how Get Your Wings is behind Pump. That album is yesterday's garbage compared to Get Your Wings. I'd suggest getting a copy and you'll understand why this is the best Aerosmith album.

1. Get Your Wings
2. Toys in the Attic
3. Rocks

4 Aerosmith

Honestly, this is probably my least favorite of their albums from the '70s (even lower than Night in the Ruts in my opinion), but it's still really strong. Obviously, you have their biggest hit song on this album, as well as a few heavy hitters like "Mama Kin," "Walkin' the Dog," and "Write Me a Letter." My favorite on the album is "Movin' Out." 4/5 stars from me.

I think this should be at the top. I listened to it from start to finish, and every song on it was great! It also has "Dream On," which is their best song by a long shot! Not only that, but the album cover is so cool and one of my favorite album covers of all time. The top three are good albums without a doubt, but this is definitely their best!

5 Pump

A well-rounded collection of consistency is exposed with Aerosmith's last '80s release. The band has never sounded so in tune with each other, while the songwriting helps to bounce all tracks within and just breathes perfection. Pump is the album every Aerosmithaholic needs to have in their collection... hands down!

Dude! This is the best album ever! It is my favorite and the reason why I want to be just like Aerosmith! This album is better than any other album ever made! People need to vote for Pump. It has Janie's Got a Gun on it, and it's a real classic. No Aerosmith album will ever be this awesome!

6 Permanent Vacation

This album is very complete, full of great songs, with the magic touch of Hangman Jury and also Dude (Looks Like a Lady). This album is a pleasure to listen to 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 "Dude (Looks Like a Lady)," "Hangman Jury," "Rag Doll," and others.

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

7 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 underrated. 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. When they were messed up on all kinds of cocaine and booze, they ripped it up. They tear it up now, cranking in Brewer, Maine.

8 Get a Grip

Ok, what is this doing here? Yeah, sure, this album only had one popular song, but the others are just as good. Eat the Rich, Get a Grip, Fever, Flesh, Walk on Down, Shut Up and Dance, and Line Up. Let's not forget Gotta Love It, which is one of their most underrated songs ever.

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.

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

9 Draw the Line

I'm a big Aerosmith fan, not keen on their post-'70s stuff, though. This album is my favorite. It's carefree and the band is not really giving a hoot, playing like they were jamming back in the beginning.

Rawer than Rocks, if not a bit slower, but with a more gritty and live guitar sound. To me, this sounds like a primordial Appetite for Destruction. Slash says he was inspired by Rocks, but hear Draw the Line.

Love it to pieces. Toxic twins just before falling apart. I think that together with Live! Bootleg, the band has never been in better shape, despite the humongous amount of drugs they were doing.

10 Nine Lives

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

Most critics hated it, but it's nice to see that the fans love it. It is truly full of energy and is very different from anything the band has recorded before or 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!

The Contenders
11 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.

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

I truly believe this album should be in the top 5. Straight raw rock. People have no idea about this album. It's a damn shame.

12 Just Push Play

By far my favorite Aerosmith album. They really turned a new corner with this album. I wish they had followed it up. Love the artwork and videos also.

This is one of my favorite albums by Aerosmith. My favorite songs are Fly Away from Here, Sunshine, Jaded, and Under My Skin.

13 Rock in a Hard Place

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!

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.

Jailbait is great! I think it's a good album.

14 Live! Bootleg

Awesome! This is the first Aerosmith album I bought, and I love it. Aerosmith live is better than their studio albums because they play the songs better.

Mother Popcorn is my hit from this album.

15 Big Ones

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. Just wow.

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

How is this down here? It's their greatest hits (some songs are missed out, though).

16 Music From Another Dimension

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

The new Aerosmith sound of the 2010s is great work, guys. Love Beautiful and Legendary Child.

17 Honkin' On Bobo

Honkin' on Bobo is surely one of my favorite Aerosmith albums. Baby, Please Don't Go and Stop Messin' Around are the greatest. I think I really love it because there's a lot of harmonica in it.

18 Pandora's Box
19 A Little South of Sanity
20 Tough Love: Best Of The Ballads
21 Devil's Got a New Disguise

This album has a good collection of Aerosmith songs. Their other songs are good, but don't have the same Aerosmith feeling.
