kleermaker, in a sense though, the period from 'Beggars Banquet' to 'Exile On Main Street' was pretty much the exception, and not the rule, where clearly defined and consistent albums are concerned.

kleermaker, my view is the period you haven't mentioned - 1974 - and 'It's Only Rock 'N' Roll' (single and album) was the moment that the Stones sounded at their most unconvincing, at least until the eighties.
Are you guys writing a book?

dylan's muse has been sporadic for the past 30 years; the stones' has been all but non-existent. really shocking considering how alive and well it was the prior 20 years....
