The entire album is a winner and provided some great listening for months after release - I still consider it a masterpiece, and hearing it now is just as satisfying. The soundtrack for the late summer and Fall of 2015, and easily the best Stones related album since Tattoo You. If the Stones as a band can ever get it together for a new album, they have their work cut out for them if they want to come close to the overall quality of Crosseyed Heart. Doubtful they can imo considering the soap opera that's taken place so far, not to mention all the other Stones albums since Tattoo You which have always felt unnatural and forced resulting in something mediocre at best.

Come on, does crosseyed heart really beat Talk is cheap? Certainly not.

I think Talk Is Cheap, Main Offender and Crosseyed Heart are all tree very good, but all have their weak points. In that sense, Crosseyed Heart is the "best" since its only weak point is the Blues In The Morning cacaphony. Talk Is Cheap was a great surprise, and has a lot of great stuff to offer, but the production could have been better, and the funk effort of Big Enough clearly does not work for Keith's voice (and again: the production doesn't help either, I could imagine live it could sound much steamier). Main Offender has the most weak songs (Yap Yap, Body Talks), but I love Wicked and Hate It When You Leave, and I've come to appreciate the odd Will But You Won't / Running Too Deep copy/paste sequence.

It did indeed, and they added parts to it that is not on the album.

It's on Keith's live album, btw smiling smiley

<Come on, does crosseyed heart really beat Talk is cheap? Certainly not.>

To me it did, right from the first listen.

Crosseyed is a more complex and vaster musical work, imo. The production is better, and the songs are more finished and refined.

I love both albums dearly, though.

Oh! And Keith sings way better on Crosseyed Heart.

Weird I thought from first listen and still think Blues In The Morning is brilliant lyrically and musically. Let's face it so many of Keith's songs would be great Rolling Stones songs.

I must be missing something. My girlfriend (not a huge Stones fan) likes that song also. I prefer to skip it, to me it just sounds like a very loud 12-bar boogie without anything special, just very loud and chaotic.
I am assuming that for you it's something like Black Limousine or Who's Driving Your Plane, (both of which I love), but for me it lacks control, clearity and direction. Never mind though, the rest of the album is great.

Well, for one, it sounds like something any band could pull out of their sleave in under 5 minutes without practicing, with all amps on max and nobody listening to anybody. But never mind, since I love the rest of the album so much, I'd hate to dwell on this song too much. As I said before, I must be missing something. By the way, I don't like "Could Have Stood You Up" very much either, although it's much less chaotic and more clearly defined, it shares the same rhythm (more or less) which I guess I´m not so fond of. No big deal.

1 : the funk effort of Big Enough clearly does not work for Keith's voice???

How do mean clearly? It works great! Great opener of the record with all ingredients that work. You should have written : In my humble opinion there.

2. The production. The production could have been better? In what way? Great dynamics, all analogue, and thus the record can be played loud without getting 'ear fatigue'. It is a great production in the sound department (in my opinion)

The cd version was not so good as the longplayer version, but with Main Offender the cd version sounds VERY good (in my opinion)

It is indeed great. Perhaps it would have made a better single than an album track?

With Lovers Plea, Suspicious, Illusion, Robbed Blind etc. On the same album, it sort of pales a bit, imo.

The MO vinyl LP also sounds excellent, imo.

CH has much more texture and landscape of sound compared to Talk is Cheap and Main Offender.

It has Lovers Plea - Keith's best song he wrote ? I prefer to listen to CH over
MO and TIC when I pull out a Keith solo record.

For me, Crosseyed Heart had a greater impact and left a bigger impression on me.
Hard to be objective with this as it's only my opinion, but the two were released at different periods of my life and therefore have a different context which can sometimes influence one's opinion.
I certainly loved Talk is Cheap and it held the place as the best Stones related album since Tattoo You for a long time...until Crosseyed Heart came out. winking smiley
That said, I think You Don't Move Me as an individual song is better than any individual song from Crosseyed Heart, but if comparing the albums as a whole, I lean towards Crosseyed Heart - for a variety of reasons.

I guess that's the point: it' s all subjective, just opinions. For me,there are, especially in the first half of CH great tunes but also few fillers in the second half. Talk is cheap: every song a Killer. Compare Blues in the morning with could have stood you up and you know what I mean.


I can't see what you mean as I think Blues in the Morning is far superior to I Could Have Stood You Up.
While Blues in the Morning is a stomping barrel house romp through the history of the blues and early rock and roll (with great lyrics), I Could Have Stood You Up comes across as nothing more than a faux rockabilly tune.
Not a bad tune by any means as it's fun to listen to and fits well on the album, but it's more of a tongue-in-cheek novelty whereas Blues in the Morning seems to have more sincerity and is closer to the real deal imo.

Hmmm: could have stood you up is s fine classic rockabilly, blues in the morning rather a jamsession with noddling guitar where the voice should be and a later overdubbed vocalpart. No masterpiece, I'm sorry

The entire album is a winner and provided some great listening for months after release - I still consider it a masterpiece, and hearing it now is just as satisfying. The soundtrack for the late summer and Fall of 2015, and easily the best Stones related album since Tattoo You. If the Stones as a band can ever get it together for a new album, they have their work cut out for them if they want to come close to the overall quality of Crosseyed Heart. Doubtful they can imo considering the soap opera that's taken place so far, not to mention all the other Stones albums since Tattoo You which have always felt unnatural and forced resulting in something mediocre at best.

Come on, does crosseyed heart really beat Talk is cheap? Certainly not.

For me, Crosseyed Heart had a greater impact and left a bigger impression on me.
Hard to be objective with this as it's only my opinion, but the two were released at different periods of my life and therefore have a different context which can sometimes influence one's opinion.
I certainly loved Talk is Cheap and it held the place as the best Stones related album since Tattoo You for a long time...until Crosseyed Heart came out. winking smiley
That said, I think You Don't Move Me as an individual song is better than any individual song from Crosseyed Heart, but if comparing the albums as a whole, I lean towards Crosseyed Heart - for a variety of reasons.

I guess that's the point: it' s all subjective, just opinions. For me,there are, especially in the first half of CH great tunes but also few fillers in the second half. Talk is cheap: every song a Killer. Compare Blues in the morning with could have stood you up and you know what I mean.


I can't see what you mean as I think Blues in the Morning is far superior to I Could Have Stood You Up.
While Blues in the Morning is a stomping barrel house romp through the history of the blues and early rock and roll (with great lyrics), I Could Have Stood You Up comes across as nothing more than a faux rockabilly tune.
Not a bad tune by any means as it's fun to listen to and fits well on the album, but it's more of a tongue-in-cheek novelty whereas Blues in the Morning seems to have more sincerity and is closer to the real deal imo.

Hmmm: could have stood you up is s fine classic rockabilly, blues in the morning rather a jamsession with noddling guitar where the voice should be and a later overdubbed vocalpart. No masterpiece, I'm sorry

Yes, but his is wrong. Blues In The Morning blows away Stood You Up by a country mile. And if those solos are just 'noodling' than it's not possible to play a solo without it being 'noodling'.

I'm surprised by the Stood You Up comments. I love that track! It's a great '50s nostalgia song, so catchy.

I don't think most were putting down Stood You Up, just saying that Blues In The Morning was superior, which it is, by far.

I like all three albums a great deal, but prefer the first two. There are songs I really enjoy on CROSSEYED HEART, but there's more filler. There were non-songs that were really just jams on the first two albums, but I loved those jams so that elevated them. Still, that aside, CROSSEYED HEART was far stronger than I expected it to be. I was in awe of it at first and then the glow faded a bit as I played it more so that I would say I really enjoy "Robbed Blind," "Trouble," "Nothing On Me," "Something For Nothing," "Goodnight Irene," "Substantial Damage," and "Lover's Plea." The first three tracks were the biggest disappointments for me. The rest wasn't bad, just predictable and fairly run of the mill for Keith. Still there were seven really good songs that surprised me.

You should listen to them directly. Anyway, hairball is right- different tastes.
Cheers, see you tonight in zurich

The last stones record I could play without skipping a track was the some girls bonus tracks and Blue and Lonesome.. I can say the same with Crosseyed Heart all are great. I am still amazed how Keith created a landscape of sound on Heartstopper, Lovers Plea could be the best song created in the studio since the 60's. Robbed Blind never thought Keith could do Bob Dylan but just perfect. I listen to this at least once a week and is the best new material any stone member has recorded except for Blues and Lonesome in many years.
