I always thought Sticky Fingers theyre best album, I played that to death, subjective I suppose


I think they did 4 great ones in a row starting with Beggars Banquet.

Yep I agree the four starting with Beggars was their final peak.

I like a lot of their earlier stuff too but I'm not sure they put together a really consistent album in that period. Although I find Between the Buttons to be an interesting one.

100%.

I would disagree that their post-'Exile' output is all bad. Maybe not as many winners per album, but some choice cuts along the way.

Fine, but no one has actually named someone from the era who really reckons 'Exile' and I'm certainly not going to wade through Keef's memoirs to find out!

Amazon rainforests have been ransacked to provide enough paper so that we can be told over and over again of the South of France, Gram Parsons, Bianca Jagger, Keef's drugs etc., so someone must have come across a distinguished/respected name who says 'You know what? Exile is fabulous!'

It's only ever the likes of Bono who seem to truly rate it.....but then he also thinks Frank Sinatra rocks!

Yep there was still good stuff to be had after. I usually put Tattoo You as the end of the Stones as a significant recording band. After that it seems they just go through the motions.

I was particularly shocked at how good 'Voodoo Lounge' and 'Bridges to Babylon' were. I remember thinking, 'What woke these guys up?'

I rank both of them up there among their best.

Unfortunately, 'A Bigger Bang' flopped for me. I guess I was thinking, 'What put these guys back to sleep?'

I did hear a more recent stones song on some show or movie a couple of monthss ago. It sounded ok. But I didn't recognize it as the stones. More like someone imitating the stones. Clearly too much studio magic going into mick's vocals.

I wonder why there has never been a 'Stones at the BBC' CD?
Just about every other major artist has had one.

Hmph. I thought 'A Bigger Bang' was the best album they made since 'Some Girls'. I love it, but i've been known to have some odd tastes in music.

We're all just different, and that's a good thing.

I may need to give that one another chance. I think I played it once and was not moved. Some works need more than one listen. I'll do that.

Meantime, I'd suggest a closer listen to 'Voodoo Lounge' and 'Bridges to Babylon'. I think there are some exceptional tracks on those.

I like Voodoo a lot, but haven't warmed up to Bridges. I'll do the same and break it out again.

This is a link to Revolution #1 (Take 20), a take that surfaced some years ago. It makes it interesting and shows how Revolution and Revolution #9 are connected.
