Sweet Neo Con

I think maybe the political tone of this song has influenced its perception. I think it has a great groove and i love Mick's singing - i think it's up there with the very best on the album.

I agree with that to a point - I picked the album at at 12 midday in perth, australia - i've just finished playing it through, and it's a great track and groove with nice harp - oh, and there ain't no filler either!

Srange how we all differ.
It's the first song along with "BOMH" that I'd get rid of if it had to be a 12 song lp.

Hi Tom
I'm in Perth too. I forgot about city Sunday trading.
Which shop did you get it at?

I only have mono mp3s of most tracks that I found on the net.
Can't wait to hear the album cranking in the car on the way home!

Have you ever lent somebody $20 and never seen them again? It was probably worth it.

I think it's, along with Streets Of Love and Look What The Cat... among the worst three songs of the album.

That's funny. I actually like Streets Of Love, Sweet Neo Con and Look What The Cat Dragged In. The riffs are great on the two latter songs IMO.

I would let go of SOL and Sweet Neocon, cause I donĀ“t think they are up the standard of the rest of the songs.

That's one of the best political songs I've heard: the lyrics just nail it (they sum up perfectly the point of view of most people here in Europe), and the groove is steady, but doesn't draw the attention away from the lyrics. I like it. Ah, and the harmonica, of course!!!

I like the music, the groove and the harp on Neo Con. Also agree with the message 100%. Bush sucks! But the lyrics seem a little juvenile, like something an angry 14 year old would write. Too much "moon" "spoon" "june" simple sort of rhyming. The lyrics are direct though - maybe Mick is sick of speaking in metaphor.

I kept this one on my edited version of the album, along with Cat, BOMH, etc. Can't stand SOL, IMO only truly bad song on album. People seem to either love or hate Cat. Can't understand how anyone can not like BOMH, though? Can someone please explain that one?

"Sweet Neo Con" should have been released as a hidden track in the US states that voted for Bush only. That would have been a statement.

Roddy and Tom.
Esky (here on the board) is also in Perth.
Every so often we have Stones nights at my brother's place - also a Stones freak but not on the board - and stay up listening to, watching, talking about Stones and drinking lots of beer.
Maybe we should organise sometime for the lot of yus to get together and say hello?
Over a beer of course.

You got it Saturday Roddy??
Was driving my wife up the wall all weekend saying how I wish it were Monday so I could get the album!
Could have saved her taking a few disprin if I'd known to look on Sat! haha.


Hi pafult01

I do like "Back of my hand". It is excellent blues but nothing that hasn't been done a thousand times before.
It's just a song that doesn't much enhance the album but would be a great b side.
Let's face it, almost any half bad songwriter could churn these types of songs out all day long.

It's a good song. They lyrics work well. I think it if it had a better riff it might be a bit more effective. But it's good none the less and definitely not the worst off the album.
