The only song I like from that album is Beast of Burden but even that version cannot touch Bette Midler's rendition of the song IMO.

You are completely right about Bette Middler. Her versions of BOB is marvelous. BOB and Some Girls are the best songs on SG. But BOB is only outstanding because of the intro and the guitar work. Otherwise it´s - just like most songs on SG - mediocre. Mick totally kills it for me with that silly "pretty-pretty-pretty-you´re such a pretty pretty"-garbage.

Faraway Eyes, btw, is probably the most ridiculous Stones-song ever.

But it's featured on their - in your opinion - "best live album" Shine A Light. Something doesn't quite add up here... It was surely meant as a country parody, but it's a nice catchy tune nonetheless imo.

SAL isn´t their best live album but their second-best. And of course it would have been better to replace Faraway Eyes by the marvelous version of Undercover that only can be found in the DVD´s bonus tracks section. Some of their decisions are strange indeed.

If you like SAL so much, shell out some good bucks for the japanese edition and there you can find Undercover as a bonus track, not replacing Far Away Eyes however, but anyway, it's there. Listening to it, it's quite understandable that it's just a japanese bonus track because it's just horrible and lousily mixed to hide it's otherwise too obvious shortcomings.

Shake Your Hips, Turd On The Run and Rip This Joint belong to my personal highlights of Exile, and I would not want to miss any of the other ones you mention...

I like every song on that list. But we are talking about masterpieces here. You have to really twist the meaning of masterpiece to try and say that Exile has a lot of materpieces on it.

People with apparent little understanding of Stones music don't make me smile, they make me sad.

I did not know that live albums were "allowed" by the original poster, but I absolutely agree with you.

David Gray – White Ladder
KISS- KISS Alive II
Stones – Let It Bleed
Flying Burrito Brothers – Gilded Palace of Sin

This is somewhat of a disagreeable thread for a Stones fan since Beggars and Exile are clearly better albums than LIB. Sure with LIB you have nine perfect dives but you have to get out of the pool each time and dry yourself off whereas with Beggars and Exile you just float downstream merrily merrily...

Lighten up, dude. It’s only KISS - It’s ALL schlock. However, as a young ‘un this album was bloody perfection, the Exile of my youth.

Re: Albums where EVERY song is a masterpiece .

Is that what most of you are discussing? Not only 'great', how difficult even that alone is to obtain from an album's all songs without exception, but much more demanding, every song a 'masterpiece'?

Some Girls is their most overrated album in my humble opinion. I almost never listen to it. I don't like most of its songs and I find the production horrible. I never understood what people find so great with that album.

I hate Miss You with a passion and songs like Shattered, Respectable, Lies, and When The Whip Comes Down are some of the worst songs in the entire Stones catalogue for me. I really don't give a rats ass for that album.

Agree 100 percent Some Girls is so overrated in my opinion people saying it's one of their best is beyond me. The 3 previous albums they released were far better GHS,IORR and Black and Blue.

The question in the title of this thread kept aside, SOME GIRLS meant the Stones, within their own kind of music, nonetheless relating to the arrival of 'new wave' and punk as the third major wave of rock and surrounding popular music genres. As such, at the outset 'new wave' involved a new simplicity. Apart from the three arguably great songs of the album (and already mentionned by Dandelion),"Miss You", "Far Away Eyes" and "Shattered", the majority of the other songs of SOME GIRLS reflects that current new simplicity, which by the way seemed to vitalize the Stones. At that juncture the Rolling Stones were capable of reinventing themselves and move with the "zeit geist" of rock music on one more occasion.
