The Best Stones Album You Can Get!
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 28/05/2008 17:04:09
This is a really amazing album. The opener "Gimmie Shelter" is in my view one of the best songs ever. i love "let it bleed", "monkey man" and "midnight rambler", pure genius. Great blues in this album and a nice version of "honkey tonk women", "country honk". if your getting a Stone album get this. this is one of the best albums in rock music history. if your a fan of classic rock, buy it now, you'll love it. i certainly do and always will!

The Stones in transition,
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 10/08/2007 15:30:35
Someone walked off with my vinyl of this in the early seventies (I still remember who, if you read this Tony) and it wasn't the first Stones CD I had to buy when converting. When I did get and play it, from the opening of 'Gimme Shelter', I immediately saw what a gem I'd been missing. This is a transitional album, after Brian Jones had gone(he features on two tracks but only on percussion and Autoharp) but before Mick Taylor arrived (only features on Country Honk)
It's like the rest of the band have something to prove and Keith's lead vocal "You got the Silver" is brilliant - as featured in Zabriskie Point. A lot of keyboards, Nicky Hopkins, Leon Russel, possibly some of the last Ian Stewart and some rare Al Koooper. Keith does most of the guitars and the songwriting is some of their best. The weakest thing on here is 'Can't Always Get What You Want' which says much for the other tracks.
It's like when Ronnie Wood joined them they became a charicature of themselves - he was bought in as much for his bad boy image as his playing ability (a la Sid Viscious to the Pistols). This predates all of that and still has some innovative and delicate stuff, before everything became a bit musically formulaic. Even Country Honk sounds great & fresh. Maybe some of those Stones tribute bands should try including it in their repertoire as a medley with the more recognisable (and predictable)Honky Tonk Women.
