Still blowing everyone else out of the water.
on 4 April 2015
I have always loved the Stones, but felt that their last really good album was "Tattoo You," but as was well known, some of the tracks there date back several years before its release to the "Black and Blue" and "Some Girls" sessions, in the mid 1970s.
However, I was fortunate enough to see them in Paris last year, when they were superb, and played some more recent songs along with a string of their classic hits, so I thought I would try this, their most recent (and final?) studio album, particularly at a price below £5 for the original pressing. I have only heard it once since it arrived a couple of days ago, and there are a few tracks which don't do anything for me, which has often been the case with their albums but most of them show the Stones at their powerful best, with a few more moving tracks, as has always been their way. This album captures their most recent sound, and shows them still to be a cohesive band, with some great riffs from Keith, the superb Charlie driving them on, and of course, Mick, screeching, wailing, and occasionally, almost crying. Well worth exploring if, like me, you have tended only to listen to their 60s and 70s gems.
