Rating: 8 I don't know why, but I used to think this was the worst Aerosmith album of the 70s. Listening back to it now I realize it's actually just as good as "Rocks" or "Toys in the attic". I mean, it's got quite a lot of accessible music. The title track is catchy as hell and the heavy, bluesy feel of 'I wanna know why' and 'Critical mass' makes it all the more fun and exciting for a fan of Hard Rock to listen to. Plus 'KIngs and queens' is an absolute beauty of a track, right up there with 'Dream on' and 'You see me crying# in my opinion.

Just recently discovered how good Rocks is so on this recommendation, I'm going to add this album to my wish list.

Rating: 6 Well, this is very average. After the pure brilliance of Rocks this is just pure mediocre. Production is lifeless and most of the songs ordinary. From what I've read, the drugs and in-fighting played a part in the demise. Don't mind the title-track and the ballad "Kings and Queens" is good, albeit a bit out of character (but I don't mind a band exploring new ground) but the rest is like a band out of ideas or just going through the motions because they are more interested in their next hit. Real shame but that's the way it is.
