This is one of the stones better albums from their late 70s, early 80s period. Actually, I like them all from this time up to Dirty work. There is a lot of violence on this disc, non more so than on Too much blood, Jagger's tongue in cheek nod towards the video nasties of the time, being there wasn't any legislation for these films at the time. The title track has a look at the South American militia and its treatment of its own people, and its just a killer piece of hard rock funk. A great single at the time and its stands strong today, up with their best material. All in all, a great stones album. Add it to your collection if it's not there already!

I have always like this album but there is a caveat. Firstly I note that this album is seen as a weak album, even by Jagger, but so many albums are when you read reviews, but if there are so many weak albums how can you be a fan. Anyway, my caveat, I like this album a lot, and I get heavily into it every now and again but this is the difference between this and any other Stones album I like, with this one I quickly get bored after a few playing over a few days and wonder what I like about it. It is strange to describe it in this way. Again there are no truly outstanding tracks here but overall it is hard and rocky but as I said can easily bore.

As Keith says in Life: Keith Richards "It was only the early skirmishing, the phoney war. The work itself wasn't bad, somehow; the album did well."

Things might not have been great with the Glimmer Twins at the time of Undercover but they still produced an album with some great tracks.

It won't be the best Stones album for most people and may sound dated (maybe not standing the test of time as much as Exile On Main Street [Remastered]or It's Only Rock 'N' Roll from a decade or so before)...

But this is one I am still listening to three decades on from when I first played it.

It sounded great then, and listening to it today on cd it still sounds great.

Track list

Undercover Of The Night
She Was Hot
Tie Me Up (The Pain Of Love)
Wanna Hold You
Feel On Baby
Too Much Blood
Pretty Beat Up
Too Tough
All The Way Down
It Must Be Hell

Keith, as well as giving us some great riffs plays some nice bass on Pretty Beat Up.
Pretty Beat Up is a great (Ronnie Wood) Stones Track that Mick and Keith didn't want to include on the album (allegedly) -why? Check out Ronnie's version on Slide on Live.

I can distinctly remember buying this album in 1983 after hearing the decent single 'Undercover Of The Night' and feeling distinctly underwhelmed. There are perhaps two songs here that are substantial enough to be remembered over the longterm - the single already mentioned 'Undercover Of The Night' and 'Too Much Blood' and the others are so insubstantial it's doubtful they could be remembered even the following day.
It's best to think of 'Undercover' as what happened the morning after the night before because this was the first album in a series leading right up to the present day that represents the Stones after they lost their muse.
Every song on this album not already mentioned is a shortterm pleasure (which is perhaps better than being no pleasure at all) - it's ultimately sketchy, underdeveloped and insubstantial where the most exciting aspect is the title of the songs themselves - 'Pretty Beat Up', 'All The Way Down', 'Tie You Up', 'She Was Hot' etc.

Possibly worth a 2.5 though.

1980's Stones is sometimes a bit dodgy but this is really great - they make the Dub, Reggae & Afrobeat influences really work - the title track still sounds amazing and She Was Hot is a great song - though it's the live version on Shine A Light that's the definitive one - and hearing Mick ramble on about the kind of films he likes in Too Much Blood is pretty funny.

Not even close to anything the boys did in their heyday this is still their best post Tattoo You album by miles. Too Much Blood and the title track alone are worth the price of admission

The Stones probably at he peak of their powers. Awesome collection of songs. Mr Richards guitar work will lull you into another world. If you only ever get one Stones album, then this has to be it. Love it.
