Biography

The Rolling Stones were formed in London in April 1962 by Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Ian Stewart (piano), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica, guitar), and Keith Richards (guitar, vocals). Bassist Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts completed the early line-up. R&B and blues cover songs dominated the Rolling Stones' early material, but their repertoire has always included rock ...

Format: Audio CD
The Rolling Stones' last studio album (so far), and its first single, "Anybody Seen My Baby?", created quite a fuss when it came out back in 1997. But it's been sort of forgotten since then, and that's a bit of a shame, because "Bridges To Babylon" is actually a tight, energetic rock n' roll record with several really good moments along the way.

Both the album and the single went to #3 in the US, and the sultry "Anybody Seen My Baby?" is probably the best song here, but it's far from being the only good one.
"Too Tight" and "Low Down" are solid, swaggering blues-rock. The tough hard rock song "Flip The Switch" is one of the Stones' fastest ever tracks, 160+ beats per minute, and Charlie Watts powers along like a train.
The slow rock ballad "Already Over Me" is moody and highly effective, sporting excellent lyrics and a superb, lean arrangement.
And then there's the swinging, Reggae-sounding "You Don't Have To Mean It", sung by Keith Richards, and the neo-funk of "Saint Of Me". And the soulful ballads "Always Suffering" and "Like A Thief In The Night".

"Bridges To Babylon" is classic Stones without sounding tired. Great production, great musicianship, and three lead vocals by Keith Richards! Not a bad purchase at all.

In hindsight 1995's Voodoo Lounge wasn't quite the all out comeback return to form we were led to believe. Sure it was nice to hear Charlie Watts delivered from the curse of cack handed 80's producers, it was nice to hear the Richards and Wood twin guitar raw and devoid of any brass instrumentation, and it was nice to hear Jagger and Richards deliver some strong material but there was something missing. The Stones have always been at there best when they are daring, yes that old trend follower Jagger is the key ingredient for this to take place. Think Sympathy for the devil with its African percussion or Gimmie Shelter which proved rock and soul where one of the same thing. With Lounge the stones found there feet again, with Babylon they challenged themselves again.

The Stones suitably hired trendy dance producers to give perfect counterweight to there earthy grit. Beneath it's garish sleeve are some of the stones greatest material post Exile On Main Street. Out Of Control and Saint Of Me are both bonafide epics that are simply built for the stadiums, with there long moody passages and anthemic choruses. Low Down has the most generally surprising chorus of the stones entire career and Flip The Switch consists of the kind of riff sitting comfortably along a Watt's drum role that Richards is infamous for.

There are a couple of duff cuts. Suck On A Jugular sees them at there most indulgent though it is good to hear Mick rasp the title, the Keith singles don't quite live up to his Lounge cuts but the weaker tracks are in the minority and there is nothing here as bad as Emotional Rescue.

Bridges To Babylon truly lives up to that ''best album since Some Girls'' tag line the critics have said of The Stones previous two albums, I would go one further and say it is there best album since 1971's Exile On Main Street.

one of those albums that passed me by at a turbulent time in my life. I purchased Bridges to make up my Stones collection, and was not disappointed....... stand out track that I cannot stop playing "you don't have to mean it". "Thief in the night" also good and although heard on compilation albums "might as well get juiced" is Mick at his 60's best

Plenty of good hard rockers ie 'Flip The Switch' enough for the Stones to hang on to their title 'Greatest Rock & Roll Band In The World'. After 35 years they can still turn up genius such as 'Out Of Control' and 'Saint Of Me'. Surely two songs that should rank amongst the Stones best. 'Might As Well Get Juiced' could have fitted well into 'Their Satanic Majestys Request' as 'Always Suffering' could have worn well on 'Goats Head Soup'. Keith finishes the album well with two sloppy romantic ballads 'Thief In The Night' & 'How Can I Stop'. Let's hope the Stones never stop.
