The Rolling Stones in Exile

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 ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Top 10 Psychedelic albums of all time 12 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Disregard the myth (mainly among some critics) that this album is a weak copy of Sgt Pepper. True, it was inspired by Pepper. (Good idea!) However to say it is "woefully misguided" or other such rubbish is to miss the fact that this album on its own is one of the top ten psychedelic albums of all time. If it was by any other band, it would be hailed as such. Unfortunately, many critics fail to see (and hear) this fact and continue to perpetuate the myth that the Stones "made a mistake" based on comparisons with the other Stones albums. Absolute bollocks! Listen for yourself: "She's a Rainbow", "2000 Light Years from Home", "Citadel", "In Another Land", "Gomper". Classic brain warpers on par with S.F. Sorrow, Pepper, Floyd's Piper, The End - Introspection. It is, in fact, as brilliant in its own way as Bleed, Banquet, Exile. Check out this baby at once!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exile on Carnaby Street 9 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't believe the bad press 17 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
Dismissed by many as a barefaced Sgt. Peppers rip-off, this album divides audiences and critics alike. It's rather like Marmite in that you either love it or you hate it. Me, I'm somewhere in the middle! While Their Satanic Majesties Request pales alongside the Stones' next album, Beggars Banquet, that doesn't mean to say it's bad. Indeed, in many ways it was the first real album they produced.
In keeping with the time, this record is a journey rather than a mere collection of songs. And the songs are not half bad, either. Sing This All Together, 2000 Man, She's a Rainbow and 2000 Light Years From Home are perfect slices of gothic psychedelia that sound nothing like anything The Beatles were doing at the time. The lengthy space-jam Sing This All Together (See What Happens) is like the more accomplished spiritual cousin of Aftermath's Goin' Home, the difference being that this track actually works. Then there is the closer, On With The Show, an hilarious piece of burlesque showmanship from Mick and the band.
Given the troubles the Stones were going through at the time - Mick and Keith's respective jail sentences, the deterioration of Brian Jones - it is a miracle this album was made at all. Given that it is such an interesting and unique piece in the Stones' puzzle, it should be celebrated for what it is, not condemned for what it isn't.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favourite Stones Record 21 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
I like the early Rolling Stones singles but in my opinion the stones music doesn't stand up to the test of time like "Their Satanic Majesties Request".
The orchestra you hear playing behind the stones are the genius of the multi-talented Brian Jones over dubs.I never realy liked the band after Brian died.They weren't the same.There is a sensitivity in their music that was lost forever after Brian Jones death.

The Stones do psychedelia?!? Not quite, but it ceratinly does have that late sixties influence. It's too dark and, well, satanic, to be flowerpower, maybe if they'd included the contemporaneous 'We Love You'\'Dandelion' they'd have got closer. It's the only album they produced themselves, getting Jimmy Miller in to do their following albums, and it gives it a peculiar, quirky style. Everyone seems to be pulling in different directions and the drugs are beginning to kick in. If you want typical Stones then this just isn't it. But if you already have typical Stones this is a great counterpoint.
'Gomper' and 'Lantern' are brilliant but certainly not rockin' R&B. 'On with the Show' - a sleazy night club parody. 'Sing this Song Altogether' (in two parts), 'Another Land' (Bill's contribution) and 'Rainbow' interesting attempts at hippydom. '2000 Man', 'Citadel'(a great but never played track) & '2000 Lightyears' Floydesque sorties into sci-fi. Overall I like this album but 'Jumping Jack Flash' or 'Satisfaction' it ain't. Definitely one for the curious and lovers of experimentation or those collectors of naustalgea from the brief Brit summer of love stuff.

Have heard the album previously. The new master is nice. Brings back memories. I think I enjoy the Stones more now than when I discovered them.
