the swan song, Steel Wheels.

They made a couple of albums after the swan song, didn´t they?

Fantastic album!
Fresh and young, very up to date!
With a small shot of punk and disco, just in touch with the latest sounds done in their very own style as ever ...
For me one of the last relevant Rolling Stones albums, better than Tattoo You, because there's no single weak song on it.

I agree with the exception of Let Me Go which deserves at least a ten and Summer Romance which is rated to high.

Wait a minute... Emotional Rescue as significant as JJF, Gimme Shelter, One Hit To The Body, Doom And Gloom, no never. ER has an interesting intro but the song becomes quickly boring and annoying.

Yes. If you know the catalogue then you'd understand. Since you don't - and what drugs you are taking makes you think you can include One Hit in regards to songs that have a high ranking in their catalogue is hilarious: it's only worthy as a B-side at best - then you don't. That's your loss, which you seem to be fine with.

Emotional Rescue is as significant as Jumpin' Jack Flash indeed - they were not a band that just sat still and did the same thing over and over and over (that would be later). Emotional Rescue is just as important to the catalogue as Happy, Before They Make Me Run, Shattered, Brown Sugar, Miss You, Start Me Up, Can't You Hear Me Knocking, Beast Of Burden and quite a few others that were either band defining singles or band defining songs and sounds.


You say ER is as significant/important as JJF and still call me three times a day a deaf, dumb & numb brainless trog for loving Dirty Work.

JJF is a milestone, ER was an attempt to repeat the success of Miss You. Just another jump on the disco train, musically in no way groundbreaking. If everything they do what they have never done before is as important as their milestones then Might As Well Get Juiced is as important as Gimme Shelter obviously.

One Hit is fantastic compared to Emotional Rescue, the only thing hilarious is Mick Jagger following the footsteps of the Brothers Gibb on Emotional Rescue...

Dirty work - now I am told considered such an embarrassment any roadie who mentions the album will be summarily dismissed [...]

That's funny, is that really true?

Can´t imagine that. It´s a story by GasLightStreet to bash the album a bit more, I suppose.

No. Unfortunately I did not make that one up. Sounds very reasonable though.

And yet again you don't get it. I never once said ER wasn't what you described. No one doubts that. Even Mick knows it was a silly song. But it was inventive - you hear that bass line, you know it's The Stones. Sure, musically it's not groundbreaking but not much is with the Stones anyway. Your last bit though is way off the charts - obviously, as you said. How you can think such a thing shows your don't dive in the shallow end depth of the Stones' music.

No one knows Might As Well Get Juiced.

No one knows One Hit.

Almost everyone knows Emotional Rescue. Chicks dig it. It's a huge song, regardless of its chart status. That's why it's an important part of the catalogue, unlike those other two "songs" you mentioned.

Considering he actually read what was said and seems to have understood it, he's not going or has gone soft - he's admitting that his idea was baseless. That's all. At least, that's the perception.

Of course my 'of course' is funny. But it's true. I'm not in Delusional Land like he is, or is perpetrating to be, anyway.

A review of ER I hadn't read before:

«As tight as Charlie's drum skins, Emotional Rescue showed the fellas putting the screws to their sound in the midst of the Stones' last era of brilliance (1978-81). Watts is on fire throughout the record, whether holding down the beat for the slinky "Dance (Pt. 1)" or letting loose snare firecrackers on the title song or rampaging forward on the shout-along "Where the Boys Go."

Everyone in the band delivers similarly crisp performances, from Jagger's staccato spurting to Keith and Ronnie's wound-up chiming. Just listen to the engine that drives "She's So Cold," Richards's twiddling rhythm guitar, perfectly paired with Woody's glistening twang.

Then, Keef sings about trying to rescue himself from a relationship on the delightfully languid "All About You," which seems to conflate the guitarist's difficult relationships with his criminal partner, Anita Pallenberg, and his partner in crime, Mick Jagger.

A ranking of all of the Stones's albums in «Ultimate Classic Rock» is to be found here: [ultimateclassicrock.com]

ER is a weird album because the overall reviews by the fans differ wildly. Take this review e.g. Indian Girl, All About You and Down in the Hole are most likely other people's favorite tracks.

Re: ALBUM TALK: Emotional Rescue

Mine would be

Dance Pt 1 - 5
Summer Romance - 6
Send it to Me - 4
Let me Go - 8
Indian Girl - 6
Where the Boys Go - 6
Down in the Hole - 9
Emotional rescue - 9
Shes So Cold - 8
All About You - 9


Dance pt 2 - 6
Everything's Turning to Gold - 9
Claudine - 10

Yeah true, but there is a certain feel to those two songs (Down In The Hole and All About You). Not everybody wants to be taken there, if you know what I mean..

I have probably ranked the songs multiple times, also in this thread, but today I feel like this:

Dance (Pt. 1): 8
Summer Romance: 7
Send It To Me: 9
Let Me Go: 6
Indian Girl: 5
Where The Boys Go: 9
Down In The Hole: 10
Emotional Rescue: 9
She's So Cold: 10
All About You: 9

I wholeheartedly agree with what the reviewer said about Charlie and the entire band, btw.

Let Me Go - 10

Down in the Hole - 10
Emotional Rescue - 10
She's So Cold - 10
All About You - 10

To me these six songs collectively are superior to any six songs on Goat's Head to Some Girls. Unfortunately the remaining songs are of 'back to zero' caliber. Ok, maybe not that bad but definitely more filler on this album than the preceding ones.
