Well, a track, in this case, is a song. The state of it isn't relevant.

Never argue with a fundamentalist.

It's not the same song.

Of course it's not, but that's a bit like saying the reggae "Never Stop" is not the same as "Start Me Up"...
...by all accounts the similarity between "Cried Out Loud" and "LIND" is pretty obvious - the groove, the mood, the stops/breaks, the vocal phrasing - and Jagger's very last "darkness" line at the very end of the track gives it away that after this jam, the idea of LIND starts shaping in his head...

I think Nico's comment "embryonic version" is pretty dead-on.

No, it's not. And I think Already Over Me (the verses) is more similar, music-wise, to LIND.

What's interesting, though, is that Cried Out is arranged. Keith and Ronnie have chords, riffs and stops they have to relate to. They are well on their way in the process of mastering it, although it's not perfect yet.

On LIND we have two Mick guitars carrying the tune + some shapeless noodling from Keith (his mistakes are turned down in the bridge, but they are still very much audible).

The main reason I keep on saying that Cried Out is not an embryonic version of LIND is because of the music and how the songs are written. If one tends to listen more to the vocalist than the band, I can understand this stance. But if you're listening to everything, you'll find that Cried Out in fact is even more fleshed out than the finished take of LIND, music-wise. Add that the vocal melody is different and that the chords are totally different (descending versus ascending - making it impossible to sing similar verse lines).

But I'm with you on Mick bringing some of the feel of HIS performance on Cried Out to LIND.

An embryo is seldom more refined than the final product.

Is it really even a track before it's mixed or just a formless jam? Maybe you've stumbled upon the debate over the new album, Bard. Life begins at final mix and not at the demo stage. We need to ratify this as law. Bjornulf, can we get an IORR mandate?

Don't under-estimate the importance of a random cut...

For what it's worth, I agree.

Oh, so you want the cut to be kosher. I can respect that.

but is does an album mean vinyl?

And do two vinyls make a double album...or do two vinyl make a double album?

A great underrated song little-known and with few views...time to give it the right importance!
I'm not a fan of ABB, but this is a great song!
High-Class song!

I like it.

I think ABB is a better album than many give it credit for too.
It has a number of very good tracks.

Great song, one of the gems of the album. ABB as a whole is very good, it still stands up.

"Laugh I nearly died" is a good song, but the band did not play it live. I never understood why ABB vanished from the set list during the ABB tour. The band did not have the courage to play three new songs, in the end even "Rough Justice" vanished. That is why I do not expect much from the famous "new album". Of course I would like to be proven wrong.

Underrated? Perhaps. 'Criminally' so? Absolutely not. Opinion is subjective, of course!

When a song like that is practically unknown...i think that we can use the word "criminally"!!

In my opinion there is only one problem with ABB, being the sound quality.

Yeah they should've performed LIND, and done RFD more as well together with ONNYA and RJ.

However, Rough Justice was performed all the way to the last show in London through 2007.

Good tune for movies too.

Yes. It’s a stunning track in my opinion. If they’d done this in the, what, 70s, it would be hailed as one of their best ever songs BECAUSE so many more would have heard it. Not just the diehards WE all are. That is my opinion anyway. It’s a track I adore.

Definitely because the tour was so long - with several legs. For the first leg, ABB-songs were pretty good represented in the setlist. By autumn 2007 (the tour started in 2005!) there was only Rough Justice left.

This song is obviously known in our circle, can’t imagine it would have great appeal outside it. Sticking with my opinion from last January. Pretty sure this song was one of my cuts in the reduce ABB discussion

The song starts well, you think it sounds great, but after that it stays in the same tempo without surprises or a good solo, it seems to me that the song is not finished.

The choir in the ending is cool, though.

I agree with what he says, maybe the song is sort of overrated in this household
