It's needs to be LESSENED, not increased. Typical.

Yes, and no. It needs to be DIVIDED into two separate albums. And of course presented in a different order. Just like I have done here. Try listening to them in exactly the order I have given and see what you think. What is an average album (and below average Stones album) turns into two pretty decent albums.

It doesn't take an "insider" to turn something average into something above average. It's rare that I come with an idea that turns out to be better than Mick's, but, of course, hindsight is always 20/20.

If he would be remotely critical of something to do with Stonesworld--just remotely so, just for once, the way a real and actual fan would--then I would say no, he couldn't after all be an employee on the PR payroll. Not that there's anything wrong with that... it must be a great job, if it's what one loves to do.

Been wanting Mick to dump the warhorses and stadium shows for years.

best post ever!!! damn that is funny.


but back to the topic at hand,this is one of the ways cd's and the digital era ruined rock and roll.
the stones had about 10 good songs for this record and for that matter every one they've done in the digital era.
the problemn is instead of being forced to cut it down to ten they just get lazy and put everything on there.so where you once had a collection of songs that worked together and made a cohesive statement now the records meander all over the place and just sound thrown together..
they probably tell themselves that they put everything on because they havent put out a record in awhile and it creates more value blah blah blah
truth is they're just to lazy to edit the damn things down.

Always have, always will. And a horrible insider at that. Awful.

I hate stadium shows and the over-playing of the warhorses, and just dismantled and re-constructed ABB into two separate albums! Do you think Mick would send someone like that here to criticize his decision making?

I thought it was fine the way it was.

That's the problem. The Stones have a history of being better than "just fine". It was OK, a below average Stones album. If they had made two albums out of it both of them would have been above average provided the songs made it onto the proper album and in the proper order. I think I have done a pretty good job of that here.

Hardly enough tracks to make one decent 40 minute album . How could that shite be stretched to two ? No way

Everything after Steel Wheels has been too long IMHO .

Sounds like you are basically in agreement with me judging by your comments. I would argue that they had more than ten good songs to work with.

Try listening to the songs as I have listed them and tell me if you don't notice an improvement. Imagine them as two separate albums.

Can't be, I have divided them into two separate albums. Do you feel both of them are bad? Try listening to them in the order I have given. Pretend they are two separate albums. One is light and upbeat while the other is somber and full of reflection and pain.

No. ABB is to me by far their best album since Tatoo You. It contains some really great stuf. It could have had more impact if a sort of SMU was in it. But agree that 16 songs was too much. A more compact with 10 songs ( Which ones ?) would have had more impact. And maybe a touch of more Keith involvement. MickT would have been the right guy to be the second guitar and bring some genius touch in that opus. But in any case this would be their last album ever, it seems.

I never like to see more than ten songs on any album. Eight is even better.

I haven't actually read most of the posts here, but ABB is already divided into two albums, if you happen to have the vinyl.

Do you want them in separate album covers as well, would that help?

Can you imagine how much Doxa would be worth today if he had been getting paid by the word all these years?

Yes.
Fair enough.

I humbly request that the next "NEW" original album be an above average Double LP then.

Yeah, MSSR50! He would be up there with Zuckerberg and Jagger. A billionaire in both words and dollars. Personally, I always find it an ordeal just putting two sentences together. After that I'm done!

We've discussed it before, but I suspect altering the sequencing would have made the album stronger. Of course, I would also have added in all three "B-sides" that turned up in 2005 as well. What it really needed was stronger lyrics in some cases and a mix that wasn't made by someone partially deaf for the express purpose of affecting the listener the same way. The 2009 remaster has some very slight differences detectable if you're listening closely with headphones, but it can't be considered an improvement, sadly. This was the beginning of the mastering demolition project.
