The Defining moment of 1969,
This review is from: Let It Bleed (Audio CD)
1969 was the year that The Beatles performed for the last time together, Hendrix performed at Woodstock and it was also the year that would end the greatest decade in the history of music and this album is arguably not only the defining moment of 1969, but also the defining moment of the 1960s. Every song on this album is a classic, it starts in style and it ends in style. Starting with Gimme Shelter one of the defining moments of the 60s and ending with You Can't Always get what you want possibly the finest song on the album and the song that ended the 60s in style. But there are not the only classics on the album, Monkey Man is one of the most under-rated songs in The Rolling Stones back catalogue, the Title track shows swagger and Midnight Rambler showcases The Stones' at their bluesy best. Possibly the finest album that The Rolling Stones ever released, it was also the final album that featured Brian Jones, and if there was an album to end the 1960s in style, than this was it.
