While I really like ABB, not nearly as much as Exile.

I do believe ABB is underrated though. If they'd slimmed it down, by taking off 4 or 5 songs, I really think they'd have had a much bigger album.

I also disagreed with their choice of lead single...I think SOL buried that album, like ABSMB buried B2B.

I agree there for SURE. Both ASMB and SOL kind of put a taste in people's mouths. Not too spicy, but chalk-full of lame.

There is an essence to A Bigger Bang, it's just in just over half the songs on the album.

Obviously Love Is Strong did as well, according to the "Love Is Strong" thread.

ANyway, I like Anybody Seen My Baby - and the video was also among their best ones after 1986....not that I care too much about promovideos myself.
So I disagree about your comments on ASMB. Wonder how Joe Bloggs views that one....

I thought the ASMB video was really good actually. It's certainly better than 90% of their videos ha ha.

yes, agreed that the video to ASMB as very good.

And while I don't even dislike SOL or ASMB as songs, my only point was that, IMHO, they really need to lead off a new stones album with a stylish rocker like Brown Sugar/Start Me Up, in order for the album to get the attention it needs.

It almost doesn't matter what the follow-up singles are, as long as the 1st single is an attention-grabber.

For me, that has been missing for the last several albums.

A great song, like Saint of Me, for example, should have been the lead single off of B2B.

I'm not sure Voodoo Lounge had a track that could have pulled it off though, maybe YGMR, but I'm just so tired of that song, I can't imagine it on a first listen anymore.

Not that I think it's the best song on the album, but in the same vein, I thought "She Saw Me Coming" would have been obvious as a single for ABB.

When I saw that Streets Of Shit was the trailer and then heard Rough Justice I was very very puzzled. It seems like the Stones would want to come out rocking, not limping like a placid dick.

She Saw Me Coming would've been a lot better than Streets Of Love, for sure!

But....Rolling Stones have taken big chances in the past when deciding which single to release from a new album.....Angie, Fool To Cry and Emotional Rescue comes to mind. All those 3 songs were a lot more provocative for the "Rolling Stones Rock Fan" than "Anybody Seen My Baby" was in 1997.

For the deluxe Exile - they DID choose a rocker though.....but I think "singles" have completely lost their meaning in 2010. Have "Plundered My Soul" ever been shown on TV? Does anybody in fact *watch* VH1, MTV and the likes? Internet has taken completely over, I think

I think you're probably right...probably right in the same sense, that Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty could probably never have another runaway hit single anymore.

On the other hand, who knows? If they released Start Me Up, for the first time, today, I bet they'd have a hit single.

You mean a smash rock radio hit (#1 for 13 weeks) and a smash pop hit (Top 40 during 6 months)? In today's market?
No way in hell... the last new Stones' single that made the Hot 100 was Saint Of Me at #94 and that was 12 years ago when the Stones' were still about 10% cool for MTV/VH1 and mainstream radio.

I second that wholeheartedly! smileys with beer

And I agree with Treaclefingers: (just like any other "post-WWIII"-album before that,) ABB is too long. Thake the skim(-med) milk away, and you're left with cream and cream only. Nice!

The thing about the post WWIII albums is, I tend to skip lots of tracks, which I don't do with preWWIII (I don't listen to Dirty Work at all, but that's conversation has been been to death).

I think the only album in their canon that deserved to be long, was EXILE...they should have taken the cutting shears to VL, B2B, & ABB...all of them would have benefited from a judicious edit!
