Another typically underrated 80s Stones album. The singles, Rock And A Hard Place and Mixed Emotions are fantastic and the rest of the album sees the boys rocking with barely a ballad in sight. A return to raucous form! I must say this is one of my favourite Stones albums (and yes, I do have them all) as the songwriting is strong the whole way through. Many a Stones album is guilty of having a fair bit of filler but this one has two songs tops.

After the tumultuous 80's, I wasn't expecting to enjoy their later releases, and bought Steel Wheels with some hesitation and reservations. However, after listening I can say I was wrong to doubt the Stones. Steel Wheels really delivers the sound that you've been waiting for,with song like the fun Sad Sad Sad and Mixed Emotions. I wouldn't think about skipping one song when listening! Learn from my mistakes, and don't miss out, this album truly is great and not one to miss out on! I'm sure the die-hard fans agree, but I want to encourage passers-by to give it a try!

So it ain't no Let it bleed, Sticky Fingers or Some Girls (in other words: no classic).

But it had a great flow from beginning to end, and it has great rock tracks like 'Rock and a hard place' and 'Mixed Emotions', as well as awesome ballads like 'Slipping away' and especially 'Almost hear you sigh'.

The production sounds a bit dated but the songs themselves stand the test of time.
Not much classic Stones, but still a lot of very good Stones.

The Stones were in the doldrums for much of the 80s, which makes Steel Wheels all the more of a surprise.

From the opening bars of 'Sad, Sad, Sad', you get the feeling they have something to prove - there's a raw energy and real sense of a great band coming together as one, which had been missing for a while.

The songs rock, the groove locks, and it all hangs together beautifully.

I loved this album when it was released and feel exactly the same about it now. It's tight, varied, and for my money better than Some Girls or Tattoo You....which makes it their best since Exile.

'Almost Hear You Sigh' and 'Slipping Away' are two of their best ever ballads, and there's virtually no flab or filler on the album. Turn it up and enjoy!

whilst I am very much a fan of the mick taylor stuff from 69-74 I would recommend this one above most others since. Out of the 12 tracks on this release there are in my opinion 9 very good tracks, the other three are fillers!. worthy of particular mention are terrifying, blinded by love, cant be seen, almost hear you sigh and slipping away. if you have stayed away from the stones since the 70's why not give this a try

It's almost as if Mick Jagger and Keith Richards sat down and wrote the songs for this album thinking "what is it that people want from a Stones album?".
They apparently decided that people want both the rockers, the ballads, and perhaps a bit of modest experimentalism ("Contineal Drift"), and that's what "Steel Wheels" provides.
It opens with two excellent, tough rockers, "Sad, Sad, Sad" and "Mixed Emotions", followed by the somewhat less remarkable "Terrifying" and "Hold On To Your Hat", and the nice, bluesy "Hearts For Sale".
"Blinded By Love" is a lovely melody, a folkish, acoustic ballad with Phil Beer (who worked with the Fairport Convention, Mike Oldfield and the Albion Band among others) playing mandolin.
Then comes one of the six (!) singles that were lifted off "Steel Wheels", and perhaps the best-known (although it was not the most succesful): the ever-so-slightly disco-influenced rocker "Rock And A Hard Place".
Keith Richards gets off the groovy, muscular rocker "Can't Be Seen", which sounds like something off one of his solo albums (and if I'm not mistaken, Richards himself is playing the lead guitar).
The fine, soulful ballad, "Almost Hear You Sigh", is actually a Keith Richards-number as well, although Mick Jagger sings it. Richards is playing a classical Velasquez guitar, and suddenly breaks into a magnificent, if too short, classical guitar solo.
And finally, after the very African-sounding "Continental Drift" and the so-so "Break The Spell", another ballad, this time with the lead vocal done by Keith Richards himself. "Slipping Away" is one of the best songs Richards has penned, lyrically and musically, and one of the best vocal tracks he and his whiskey-soaked pipes have laid down as well.

As with the recording of "Some Girls", the threat of Richards serving a long jail term spurred the band to raise their game & record quality album.
A similar scenario happened with "Steel Wheels", Jagger & Richards had had an almighty falling out during the recording of the "Dirty Work" album, almost causing the split of the band, but instead they buried the hatchet & record a quintessential Stones record.
All the ingredients are hear that make a good Stones album, from the up
tempo rocker "Sad Sad Sad", to a bit of country on "Blinded by love", to
the nice Keith Richards Ballad "Slipping away", the simple RnB of "Break the Spell", to the Brian Jones influenced Moroccan styled "Continental Drift".
Now it's not all plain sailing of course, you have usual attempt at a contemporary styled song with "Can't you see" (Miss You has go a lot to answer for!) & "Rock & a hard place" which sees the Stones in funk/soul anthem mode, but ends up sounding a little flat.
So if you have exhausted the rest of the bands 1960's & 70's back catalogue, then this record is probably the best of the rest, which unfortunately is saying a fat lot, but is going to be strongest post "Some Girls" Rolling Stones album you're going to hear.
