3.0 out of 5 stars Exile on Main Street, 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Exile On Main Street [Remastered] (Audio CD)
Exile On Main Street (Remastered)

Well its my first Stones Album in a while and i can say the old stuff is still the best even if its been remastered. In some ways the remastering has taken a bit of the brass off the music......i used to like the raw stuff, but non the less the Stones are what they are a blues band. What more can i say- a reasonable purchase.

suggest if you have a sei decent set up with a deck that you buy one of the audiophile vinyl versions of exile.i own the virgin simply vinyl 180gm remastered edition from the late 90,s and simply put its the real deal.
its not polished too much in that if you listen you are able to hear buzzing amps even background chatter in one song.the bass drum rattle and the pedal squeaks-now thats what i like to hear in the rock album-real people warts and all-not too polished,as much as i adore dark side of the moon and similar prog records- too much and you become anodyne and sterilised.is that what rock is about really-when i was a professional musician it was hot sweaty clubs and very loud and smelly placs they were indeed.not condusive to noodling 18 minute conceptual pieces about mental illness.
you had people standing not less than 5 foot away from you-it was real and thats what the stones bring to the table-reality.
as for them being a blues band i think that is a misconception.brian jones wanted them to be pure blues band but after little red rooster(their only true blues style single)can you really call what they were doing blues ?
blues for me is either the proper american stuff like son house or howling wolf and willie dixon etc etc. these were 5/6 white middle class-ish lads from london(stu excepted) who had FA to do with poverty and slavery etc etc.they became an amalagm of white blues ,soul r & b and importantly pop-turning into a rock band along the way after dalliances with psychedelia and the flower power era.hence brian jones was lost his blues band had morphed into something completely different and he had lost complete control of it and his life-sad i know but it happens - often !
with beggars banquet onwards we have a different stones one set up for the rock format that was emerging with the new yardbirds,cream and the who again morphing from their mod base-is tommy a work of a mod band ?is quadraphenia a work of a blues band -no its progressive rock in its sccope and musicality.
sorry to waffle eternally !

hi m8 i agree the stones are neither proper blues or proper rock but fit into a sort of morphed english blues/ rock style,,,that why i i could only say a reasonable buy. Actually thinking about it they dont really represent a difference in style of music which can be difined as groundbreaking like punk or new wave or even prog rock. gone are the days i can now find a grotty pub and dangerous, like The Black Swan in Sheffield and listen to great different music live whilst drinking a pint........bring back Tontos Expanding Headband!!!!!
