    Aerosmith were falling apart. Substance abuse was taking it toll. Interpersonal relationships were disintegrating. Guitarist Joe Perry was already gone by the album’s release and fellow guitarist Brad Whitford would soon depart as well. Guitarists Richard Supa and Neil Thompson pick up the slack, and it’s a testament to just how skilled a band they were that even with all this difficulty, they were able to assemble an album as strong as 1979’s Night in the Ruts. The album lacks the diamond-hard precision of the band’s earlier works, favoring walls of massive overdubbed guitars to get its message across. This sonic bludgeoning adds heightened drama to the masterful opening cut (Aerosmith always knew how to make an entrance) and make “Chiquita” and “Cheese Cake” among the band’s densest hard rock. A cover of the Shangri-Las’ “Remember (Walking in the Sand)” allows singer Steven Tyler to sing to sweet desperation, while the Yardbirds’ “Think About It” puts the guitarists into full play.

    There's a much blues-rock in this great album.

    This album has been used, abused and mistreated, by the band themseleves as much as anyone...and it is a shame. They may have been messed up and pissed off but this is one of Aerosmith's best albums regardless of what anoyone says.
