The fifth full-length studio album by legendary American Hard Rock/Blues Rock band.
The last Aerosmith album for eight years to feature Joe Perry for the entire recording (he left halfway through the recording of their next album, "Night in the Ruts").
It was recorded in an abandoned convent near New York City. The portrait of the band on the album cover was drawn by the celebrity caricaturist Al Hirschfeld.
As the band began recording "Draw The Line", their excessive lifestyle, combined with constant touring and drug use, began to take its toll. Although the LP would sell well more than a million copies in fewer than six weeks after its release, in 2014 Perry would refer to it as "the beginning of the end" and "the decay of our artistry". It marks the band's first slowdown in album sales of their 1970s era, after their initial rise with the albums "Toys In The Attic" and "Rocks". The album was less successful than their previous albums, selling only 2 million copies ("Toys In The Attic" sold 8 million, "Rocks" sold 4 million).
Kerrang! Magazine listed the album at No. 37 among the "100 Greatest Heavy Metal Albums of All Time" for its "high energy", although it never touches Heavy Metal as a genre, concluding with the comment "sleaze was never so classy".
"Draw The Line" went Platinum in its first month of release, entering the music charts on December 24, 1977, peaking at No. 11 on the US Billboard 200, and eventually being certified 2x multi-Platinum nearly a decade later.
CBS Records, 1977 (466729 1). Made in Holland. Used (cover/disc): EX/EX.
