These DSD remasters of the Abko era Stones catalogue sound really good on the vinyl versions. Purist may baulk at the "Digital Remastering" but it allows us to hear these 1960s recordings better than ever before. The Stones recordings of the 60s were not the last word in sonic perfection in any case. Their Satanic Majesties is not held in the same affection as other 60s efforts like Beggars Banquet and Let It Bleed (both of which I have in this series and love) but I really like it. Ridiculed in some quarters as a poor attempt to rival Sergeant Pepper, I think it a really good effort from the boys to do something different and experimental. There are also some classic Stones tunes here. The DSD pressing really lets us hear what was being played and in particular makes very clear how crucial Charlie Watts' drumming and Bill Wyman's bass were to the Stones' sound. A fine album and worthy of re-investigation by the doubters.

By The Guardian TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 18 Aug. 2013
Format: Audio CD
At the end of the year in which LSD-fuelled psychedelia exploded into popular consciousness, TSMR released in December 1967 was widely seen as the Stones' attempt to emulate the Beatles' `Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band'. The album received `mixed reviews' from the press, and Keith Richards famously described it retrospectively as "A load of cr*p".

From a 21st century perspective we can now see TSMR as a period oddity, distinctly of its time. The album has a handful of good tunes (`She's a Rainbow' and `2000 light years from home' maybe the most memorable) and much that is mediocre. Unusually for the Stones in this period, the recordings feature many guest musicians: Nicky Hopkins on assorted keyboards, John Paul Jones arranging the strings on `She's a Rainbow', Lennon & McCartney singing on the opener `Sing this all together', and some un-credited violinists. The result is a very distinctive sound, quite unlike any other Stones album yet retaining that trademark streak of rebelliousness, that dark bad-boy edginess.

The album's title is a play on the phrase `Her Britannic Majesty's Request' which at that time used to be printed in British passports, and in some parts of the world was released as `The Stones are Rolling' because the word `Satanic' was considered taboo.

Verdict: possibly only for the Stones completist, or fans of the offbeat and curious. If you can find the original 12" vinyl LP with lenticular 3-D image on the front cover, it's considered a collectors' item.

I first listened to this album back in the early 70's but failed to appreciate it's qualities at the time, no doubt due to the fact that I had been brought up on the more familiar earlier Stones such as Out of Our Heads and Aftermath.
Thankfully I have lately "re-discovered" it and thanks to some excellent restoration work on the CD it comes over as both melodic and innovative. Most of the credit for the bold instrumentation and arranging will no doubt be down to Brian Jones as he seemed to be the one true musician in the group at the time. To say that he was irreplaceable as a key member of the Stones is an understatement.
The well-known tracks are She's a Rainbow and 2000 Light Years From Home but other really good numbers include 2000 Man with it's acoustic guitar intro and excellent drumming, The Lantern with it's fuzz guitar and Citadel which has a psychedelic early Pink Floyd sound to it.
Younger Stones fans who tend to play safe and only listen to their stuff from the 80's and later would be well advised to take a chance on this but make sure that they listen to it on headphones so as to really take in the diverse nature of what is on offer. For us of the 60's generation it is a journey back to halcyon days.

The phrase 'ill-advised' is always bandied about whenever critics cover this phase of the Stones' career, but what is more ill-advised - settling into a cosy cul-de-sac that a straitjacket label like 'The World's Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band' leads to, or being brave enough to transcend genres with a vision of pop music as a limitless vista of endless possibilities?
For me, the Stones were at their best when they escaped the confines of R&B and widened their musical horizons, something they were equipped to do with aplomb courtesy of Brian Jones' ability to play any instrument he picked up. Now that 'Pop' has become as much of a restrictive dead-end as any other label, the province of test-tube boy-bands churning out focus group-approved ballads so saccharine Pat Boone would have baulked at singing them, it's refreshing to revisit an era when Pop was actually a platform for invention, innovation and adventure; and despite their best efforts to subsequently distance themselves from it and find money-spinning solace in the repetition of The Riff, the Stones were once as sonically ambitious as the Beatles, as this album proves.
I first bought 'Satanic Majesties' on vinyl in the 80s - that poor-quality 'flexi' vinyl typical of the period and housed in a cheap cardboard sleeve that began to disintegrate within months. I mainly bought it for '2000 Light Years From Home' and that seemed to be the only track I ever played before flogging the LP along with a bunch of others at my local second-hand record shop. But giving the album a fresh hearing 25 years later has certainly been worthwhile. In many respects, it's a miracle the Stones managed to record anything in 1967, let alone a brave experiment like this one. Of course it will always languish in the shadow of 'Sgt.
