Well I guess one man's coffee is another mans cuppa tea, when it comes to Out Of Tears, it leaves me cold. No emotions there, but Almost Hear You Sigh, live version of SOL (not the album version) and Blinded By Rainbows are excellent songs when it comes to touching the heart.
Already Over Me with its Aminor/sus-chord and country flavoured "no-hope-a la-Hank Williams" approach is a gem IMHO. Always Suffering is basically Locked Away with Mick on vox.
Listening to this the other night, and just thinking what a great narrative song with a fab sound, and just thinking how much I ADORE these mid 70s Stones songs, and how I miss that long melodic style, particularly noticeably lacking from ABB.
MM I suppose belongs to their long and successful list of country rock, but I think it also belongs to the rambling narrative melodic songs like Time Waits, Winter, Moonlight Mile, Can You Hear, Salt Of The Earth, Sweet Virginia...
any of the new offcuts, so I can enjoy them fresh on my turntable
I wish Mick would address himself to a similar vein of focus as Dylan does to Murder Most Foul....would really love a 12 minute ramble from the boys....Perhaps they could fill up the 4th side of their forthcoming opus with something like that...anyway as you can see this is a bit of a ramble as well....hope you're all having a pleasurable Stones weekend. SO FAR I've managed to avoid listening in full to any of the new offcuts, instead delaying until I have the vinyl....
