4.0 out of 5 stars Remastering the Stones
OK, I would imagine that most folk already know this album and will already have it in some form or other. Therefore I will not dwell too long on the peerless music contained therein. The music is a mixed bag of styles taking in deep core blues numbers, hoary rockers and a spell of jazz-rock(almost!)in the latter minutes of Can't you hear me knocking which is worth the...

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely dreadful sound quality!
I have never bothered to review any purchases previously but after listening to this so called re-mastered version I felt I had to.
The dynamic range is severely compressed which distorts the music badly. Brown Sugar is worse then previous releases including the Forty Licks album.
The studio engineer clearly has no skill and I have had to buy the older 1994...

5.0 out of 5 stars Whoah!,
This is it! This album is a distillation of all the hard-ons in the universe. This is the blueprint of rock. Rock's DNA. It's all here; blues, country, electric, lust, violence... Rockers, start here.

5.0 out of 5 stars HOW COME YOU TASTE SO GOOD??,
The Rolling Stones have created a characteristic style that was shown in the "Beggars'Banquet" album, where they could build up an image and very good songs like "Sympathy for the Devil" or "Street Fighting Man", which ones have made their way out through glass onions or nights in white satin. Well, this is, for me, one of their best albums. "Sticky Fingers" is the beginning of the good music that was up to come in the 70's, "Brown Sugar", for instance. Only for "Wild Horses", this album is worthwhile! This is the original and genuine Rolling Stones sound for me!! Just say yes!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars What can I say.......,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have the vinyl but find the cd version great for the times when I am doing other things and do not want to be hopping up and down turning the vinyl over. Excellent cd, one of my favourate Stones albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars eeww I've got sticky fingers kool i think,
the rolling stones the best rock and roll band in history and so are many other bands, no-one needs an introduction too this classic slice of raw blues rock
sticky fingers a flawless masterpiece that every song is great
this album starts off with brown sugar and ends in moonlight light not many albums start and end like that do they come on be honest
it's one big rock and roll sandwich and sometimes you don't get the right filling but this album has great filler great singles and great album tracks
come and bite some blues rock sandwich and if you are disappointed well at least you'll have sticky fingers

5.0 out of 5 stars Just go and buy it!,
Interested in Rock n Roll? Country? Blues? RnB? The Rolling Stones? Popular Music?
If you've answered 'yes' to any of these questions - and you STILL don't own this classic then stop whatever it is you're doing and get this sucker ordered up sharpish. Probably the best outing from their late 60s-early 70s purple patch. Rock on!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cooder,
It's actually Ry Cooder (Buena Vista Social Club) that play lead guitar on Sister Morphine, not Mick Taylor as the review says.

3.0 out of 5 stars A niceSuBo cover version.,
I bought this on the strength of my Susan Boyle CD which contained Wild Horses, and found that the Stones had also covered it. It's not as good as SuBo but not a bad try.
