4.0 out of 5 stars Sitting around in kaftans on silk cushions toking on a hookah with a zither or marimba or something trying to see what it does, 11 July 2007
This review is from: Their Satanic Majesties Request (Audio CD)
The Stones do psychedelia?!? Not quite, but it ceratinly does have that late sixties influence. It's too dark and, well, satanic, to be flowerpower, maybe if they'd included the contemporaneous 'We Love You'\'Dandelion' they'd have got closer. It's the only album they produced themselves, getting Jimmy Miller in to do their following albums, and it gives it a peculiar, quirky style. Everyone seems to be pulling in different directions and the drugs are beginning to kick in. If you want typical Stones then this just isn't it. But if you already have typical Stones this is a great counterpoint.
'Gomper' and 'Lantern' are brilliant but certainly not rockin' R&B. 'On with the Show' - a sleazy night club parody. 'Sing this Song Altogether' (in two parts), 'Another Land' (Bill's contribution) and 'Rainbow' interesting attempts at hippydom. '2000 Man', 'Citadel'(a great but never played track) & '2000 Lightyears' Floydesque sorties into sci-fi. Overall I like this album but 'Jumping Jack Flash' or 'Satisfaction' it ain't. Definitely one for the curious and lovers of experimentation or those collectors of naustalgea from the brief Brit summer of love stuff.

I remember a school trip to Switzerland once years ago where the jukebox had a single of She's A Rainbow/2000 Light Years and I'm wondering if you are that Moz. Bought this album the day after the trip ended and several times since on many formats. Still fascinating to see where record companies think the above 2 tracks begin and end. Still listening to it today, and still skipping the last track. J
