Well look at the song titles, what can i say. Pure unadulterated unquestionable pleasure, and so much more than words can describe actually. That's Goats Head Soup..

Kick ass record. Right up there with anything they've ever done, imo. Perhaps the last gasp of true rock greatness from this band.

Certainly the point at which heroin started to turn against many of the players in the Stones circle, Keith, Anita, Andy Johns and Jimmy Miller being the most obvious examples although I think Bobby Keys and others were equally feeling the negative ramification of addiction at this time.

I wish more footage and stories of the making of this record were around. I've seen no video of the Jamaican Stones from 1973 and precious few photographs. Strange that there isn't a trace of a reggae feel about the record considering where they were.

Billy Preston was fantastic on this one. RIP Billy.

Not just Billy. Everybody pictured on the album insert except Jim Horn is no longer with us.

No worries, I will probably get around to telling the story in greater detail someday, I was actually waiting to find a couple pictures to accompany the story to embellish it and show how absolutely beautiful Patti was at that time. This is not the thread to tell it though and fyi it was 2 boats rides, not just one!....and one party which went on all night and half the next morning.

Hummm... never cared too much for this. Most part of the album is boring, a few songs are quite good but offer nothing remarkable new, Stones-by-numbers & Chuck-Berry-routine, sometimes done in a quite enjoyable way, but nothing really exciting. Listening to this album I always have a "The Stones imitating the Stones"-feeling. A big yawn is always underway.

Dancing with Mr. D----------- very bad start for the album. Never liked this song.
100 Years Ago----starts nice but soon becomes very boring.
Coming Down Again----pretty much like 100 years, nice start but going nowhere....but less boring than 100 Years.
Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker)----partly striking, partly very odd.
Angie---- horrible, honestly I never liked it.
Silver Train---funny, but...
Hide Your Love---- the number I like the best.
Winter---- boring, boring, boring, boring.
Can You Hear the Music----sounds like psychodelic leftover from TSMR-period, cant stand it. Not only weird-sounding but boring too.
Star Star---- quite all right, the Stones in Chuck-Berry-mood. But somehow it does not sparkle the way it should have.

Even the Stones cannot deliver masterpieces all the time. After a handful really great albums, this one almost totally fails, imo. Very few highlights on this one, I wouldnt say it sucks completely, but overall it´s damn boring to my ears. The only tracks I would pick for a compilation are Hide Your Love and Star Star.

If I had 5 favorites...this is #1...its gotta be my homemade vesion that includes Save Me, Through The Lonely Nights, Separately and a few others. Just a fantastic piece of recorded history.

Bobby Keys is great

Save Me could have saved this release. Obviously Keith's involvement in not up to par. Weakest album of the 70's IMO.

Very good record, and great to hear the tracks they played more powerful during their '73 tour.
