And a tip of the hat to May 12, 1971.
Would be Mick & Bianca's Golden Anniversary this year.

and in celebration...let's do the unthinkable, or at least see what someone else has done. Rank the tracks from best to worst:

[faroutmagazine.co.uk]

One thing I noticed immediately, was that I had a visceral reaction to the 'worst' cut. There is no worst cut, but if you play this game, there has to be a least favourite.

Funny, I never thought of exile in terms of this, as even the 'weaker' tracks are fabulous.

I had to do this by thinking about which was my favourite and then removing from list. Didn't have a clue which would be my 'least favourite' until I got to the end.

SO...my order of songs in preference. Excruciating exercise.:

Rocks Off
Tumbling Dice
Sweet Virginia
Loving Cup
Shine A Light
All Down The Line
Sweet Black Angel
Happy
Rip This Joint
Casino Boogie
Stop Breaking Down
Ventilator Blues
Turd on the Run
Shake Your Hips
Soul Survivor
Just Wanna See His Face
Let it Loose

My older brother got the 8-track, my mom used to make him take me to school, I can still remember sitting in the back seat of his 72 Duster with the tunes pumping out of the high powered amp stereo system...ears bleeding and smiling all the way! I guess I just realized that's where it all started.

I'm surprised how low ranked Let it Loose is, both at Far Out and the posters above.
Exile seem to have something for every fan, even if we don't share taste and opinions.

My first third part of the album:

Rocks Off
Let it Loose
Loving Cup
Sweet Virginia
All Down the Line
Shine a Light

Thommie-The problem with Let it Loose is it comes way too late in the album. Too many similar songs in style before it. By the time you get to it you've already heard Sweet Virginia, Sweet Black Angel, and Loving Cup. I feel like Shine a Light should have closed the album. Also think All Down the Line should come much earlier. Sticky Fingers and Exile both had odd song orders in my opinion.

It has a mellotron on it? It's beautiful, but messy? It is both over rated and under rated? It ends, but feels unresolved?

"That's a very weird, difficult song. I had a whole other set of lyrics to it, but they got lost by the wayside. I don't think that song has any semblance of meaning. It's one of those rambling songs. I didn't really understand what it was about, after the event." - Mick Jagger

Agreed...even though it's lower on my list, it's only because there is so much good. Excruciating choosing.

Loving Cup, Sweet Virginia and Let It Loose are my favs from Exile.

Loving Cup especially is @#$%& magic! hot smiley

Exile is a funny one for me: rarely do I reach for it, yet every time I do so, I'm transfixed. It works superbly as a complete listening experience.

Something for everyone. For me, not a duff track, nothing I would skip, nothing I think they should have taken out. The 'perfect' album.

I don't know...still wonder about JJF on Beggar's and HTW on LIB.

How you make perfect albums even perfecter.

By not including the contemporary singles of the time.

It simply wasn’t U.K. practice. Those Capitol and London LP’s feel far less authentic for including the contemporary singles of the day.

Yes I know the rationale, I'm just being revisionist.

You can't go ranking the 18 songs on "Exile on Main Street." There are no songs on that album. There are 18 movements. You have to listen to that record in one sitting in order from the first movement, "Rocks Off," to the last, "Soul Survivor." Along the way you will explore many peaks and valleys. You will hear something you never heard in the 412 previous times you listened to "Exile on Main Street."
