Done With Mirrors
Released: Oct 1985
Named in honor of the drug they were newly clean of, Done with Mirrors finds Aerosmith in that strange place after their critical peak and before the bell sounded for Round Two of their career, when they took over the world with synthesizers. With Joe Perry back in the fold, the muscularity is back ("Shame on You"), and "My Fist, Your Face" shows Steven Tyler can still turn a phrase. But with their major resurgence two years away, Aerosmith seem to be searching for an identity on Done with Mirrors.
