Aerosmith was on a serious roll when they issued Rocks in 1976, a raw and rocking 9-song set that proved to be as equally compelling and essential as their 1975 masterpiece Toys In The Attic. With producer Jack Douglas once again in tow, Aerosmith churned out more monster riff-heavy cuts and catalog favorites like "Back in the Saddle" and "Last Child," coming into their own as songwriters and overshooting their influences once and for all in the process.
"After Toys in the Attic proved that Aerosmith were more than a Stones caricature, the band flexed its muscles on the boastfully (and aptly) named Rocks, a buffalo stampede of rave-ups and boogies. In an era of arena bombast, songs like "Back in the Saddle" and "Last Child" kept it low to the ground and swinging." - #176 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time
