5.0 out of 5 stars One of Mick's best albums
The quality of these songs makes this album a good classic of the 90s as Mick goes through an great variety of styles with great enthusasium. There's real Stones rock in Wired All Night, Out Of Focus and Put Me In The Trash; funk in Sweet Thing; blues rock in Don't Tear Me Up and Use Me; country music in Evening Gown and Hang On To Me Tonight; Angel In My Heart and...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad
Not as good as Primitive Cool (fewer memorable tracks) but OK. A slightly different sound from The Stones, when he's solo.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Mick's best albums, 8 April 2001
This review is from: Wandering Spirit (Audio CD)
The quality of these songs makes this album a good classic of the 90s as Mick goes through an great variety of styles with great enthusasium. There's real Stones rock in Wired All Night, Out Of Focus and Put Me In The Trash; funk in Sweet Thing; blues rock in Don't Tear Me Up and Use Me; country music in Evening Gown and Hang On To Me Tonight; Angel In My Heart and Handsome Molly aren't worth mentioning. Brilliant music - great lyrics put in a clear book. It's like those late 60s and early 70s Stones albums where every song is a great. Mick sings his heart out and puts most of modern rock music in the trash.

4.0 out of 5 stars Louche, funky, a little country: almost great, 5 Oct 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Wandering Spirit (Audio CD)
Half of this album is fantastic. Sweet Thing still sounds fresh, and will get anyone dancing - it's a classic Jagger track, as is Don't Tear Me Up. Evening Gown and Hang On To Me Tonight are both simple but touching ballads with a country lilt. Wired All Night sounds a little hipper than Status Quo, but not much, and the cover of Bill Withers' Use Me sounds weak and dated - in making it a duet with Lenny Kravitz, Jagger may have imagined he was proving he could still cut it with the kids, but it blunts the song's edge - a great opportunity missed. Still, this is a lot better than recent Stones stuff, I reckon, and I regularly play it - it's good music to listen to while you're travelling.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST ALBUMS OF THE 1990's, 16 Feb 2001

This review is from: Wandering Spirit (Audio CD)
The quality of these songs makes this album a true classic of the 90s as Mick sails through an impressive variety of styles with great panache. There's real Stones rock in Wired All Night, Out Of Focus and Put Me In The Trash; falsetto funk in Sweet Thing; blues rock in Don't Tear Me Up and Use Me; country balladeering in Evening Gown and Hang On To Me Tonight; hints of gospel in Angel In My Heart and even Celtic folk in Handsome Molly. Emotionally compelling music - great lyrics wrapped around killer hooks. It's like those late 60s and early 70s Stones albums where every song is a classic. Mick sings his heart out and puts most of modern rock music in the trash.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glimmer only Child, 24 Oct 2012
This review is from: Wandering Spirit (Audio CD)
They has always been a argument In music about how important a record producer is to quality of an album.
With regard to this particular record, Rick Rubin's participation is absolutely essential, breathing real life & a successful modern sound to the record.
Although it's a album full of original composures, it feel like a journey through The Stones recording career. From the country "Evening Gown", to the medieval sounding ballad "Angel in my Heart"(ala Lady Jane), to the straight-laced rocker "Wilted all Night" to the gospel tinged "Out of focus". There's even a traditional folk song "Handsome Molly", which is the first time that's ever happened.
Admittedly the Lenny Kravitz duo "Use me" is unnecessary, but that can't spoil such as strong record, you even get Bill Preston playing keyboards!
The only frustrating thing is, why didn't Rubin produce The Stones? Rumour has it that he can be difficult to work with, Neil Young shelved making a record with him after meeting Rubin, & AC/DC said they would never work with him again.
But whatever the politics, this is still an outstanding album.
