Love Overdue is dazzling

As a ten-track-album it would be considerably better. There are some songs that lack inspiration and some songs that seem sort of unfinished... some songs imo have an untimely fade-out as well... sound quality also varies now and then.

Ten track albums are often better, I'll give you that.

However, as a Stones fan you should know (and appreciate) Keith’s style, which is exactly "unfinished", imo.

thumbs up Exactly so

To "finish" much of Keith's work would be to polish out half of the best bits smiling smiley

Curious HMS what would your trimmed CH version be?

I wouldn't say that I'm always in the mood for every track on the album...but I wouldn't want any of them to be missing.

If I HAD TO trim two songs off the album (at gunpoint), those would be Goodnight Irene and Just A Gift – mainly because I find the other slower songs on the album superior..

Just A Gift floors me every single time. I guess if the album ended with 13 songs at Goodnight Irene it would have worked

I would exclude Something For Nothing, Lover´s Plea, Goodnight Irene, Nothing On Me, Illusion.

Exactly.

There's times when I skip around when playing the cd to hear what I'm in the mood for, but when listening to the album from start to finish on vinyl or cassette I wouldn't/couldn't think of trimming anything off.
Like Exile (and unlike every Stones album since Tattoo You), it's a collection of songs that all work together from the beginning to the end,

If anything it leaves me wanting more, and there's still hope for the release of a deluxe version with demos, outtakes, extended versions, etc.
Surely there must be something left in the Crosseyed vaults of Keith to be released! thumbs up

From the very beginning I was rather disappointed in terms of sound-quality.
Some songs, I might say MOST songs sound compressed and distorted. Seems that my ears are not to blame, look here:

What do YOU think about the sound-quality? To me it´s much worse than Main Offender & Talk Is Cheap.

The sound quality (the amount of compression) was a disappointment for me.

Didnt expect that, too much if you ask me.

Compression or no, Keith just made me ovulate.
Didn't expect that either :E


(In fact I did expect it - he's done it before. He can't help it.)

Played it all summer, everybody likes Crosseyed Heart. A lot of people unfamiliar with the Stones are surprised to find it's Keith. Crosseyed Heart is an all-time classic.

The CD is mastered hot but it still SOUNDS good. In fact it sounds excellent.

Mastering isn't bad after the first song, title track is hotter than the others. The rest of the cd plays like most modern cds do. There's a good separation of sound on this cd. It doesn't seem too hot overall to me. In fact, there's an illusively good quality about this cd, something that's lacking in many others, and I can't place exactly what it is. Could be the separation of sound and raising and lowering of volume from the instruments and vocals that make everything sound natural.

That's part of the problem, the "as", because it's not that simple.

Every track on it sings on and on ... which is fine with me :E

So much love for a decent album... The last couple of Stones-albums were decent too but never got that much love... very strange... Listening to CH I hear a pretty good album but can´t see the holy grail like some other fans do.

I agree with you HMS. Decent is the right adjective here. Or to put it in numbers: 5-6/10. Or something like that.

No, it's not the Holy Grail but to my ears there is a feeling and warmth to this record that has been missing from all stones and stones related projects since TATTOO YOU. The energy seems natural; none of it feels forced or contrived. I still love this album after a year and play it often.

Yes I agree.
Maybe Keith truly enjoyed making CH ...and working with Steve J etc.
With The Stones? I think despite his utterances (good PR) there maybe too much baggage..or boredom. In some Bands, the friction between key players may be to artistic advantage, I think with Mick and Keith in the studio, perhaps not the case any more.

i'm definitely going to make it a point to listen to the second half of the record...does it improve?
