4.0 out of 5 stars Rolling Stoned, 13 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Their Satanic Majesties Request (Audio CD)
The Rolling Stones answer to Sgt. Pepper is not a bad album, but Sgt. Pepper it ain't!. The only other Stones studio album I have to compare it to is Exile..., and I'd say it's almost as good as Exile on Main Street.

The sound quality here is DSD remastered and sounds great. The songs themselves vary in quality. Citadel, She's a Rainbow, On With the Show, In Another Land, 2000 Man and 2000 Lightyears from home are great. My favourite, The Lantern I think is brilliant, one of my all time favourite Rolling Stones Tracks.

The other tracks, Sing This All Together and Gomper are all good, but average songs, but the Rolling Stones have done better. Sing This All Together (See What Happens) is 8 and a half minutes of rubbish really, though it's probably the only song on the album I'd skip after a few listens.

Not the best introduction to the Rolling Stones (try 40 licks or something), but for established Rolling Stones fans, this is an essential buy.

Drugs were clearly involved (proven by Keith Richards (I think) asking at the start of Sing This All Together (See What Happens) "Where's that joint?"! But, a good album. Glad that the band returned to their R&B roots with their next album though!.
