The sales numbers tracking, since the sales are so good for this day and age, is great, the fact that the album may be the UK's Christmas no 1 is fantastic, another frickin' miracle no one would have anticipated.
In fact, I recall the absolute certainty with which a number of posters on here predicted that after a week in the charts it would drop into oblivion, and have no impact outside of the circle of deluded old saps who frequent iorr. Not so!!
The live tracks, however much tweaked, are a great listen, the album is shaping into one of their classics - every time I play it, I find I have to play the whole thing through - and it's been in the UK charts for almost two months, and maybe heading back to the top spot.
A Christmas miracle ....!

I'm not sure you could have found even one person that could have predicted this. You're right, it's nothing short of a Christmas miracle. The fact that in North America it's all but disappeared from the charts and in Europe you have a top ten hit (number one??? WTF?!) 2 months after it's release is startling.

One has to ask, "what's the difference, what went right in Europe and wrong in North America?"
.
BTW, how is it playing in South America, Asia & Australia by comparison?
Like you, I'm not entirely sure. However, considering the Stones can still sell-out stadiums in the States, it's less-than-stellar performance sale-wise is certainly nothing to do with the group's popularity there. Could be to do with the demographic that purchases 'rock albums'? I'm not sure where I'm going with that, exactly, but the Stones' genre(s) caters to more of a niche market, perhaps. In the States, anyway. Pop, latin-pop, country, hip-hop, etc; they're all vying for sales in the States. I can't speak for mainland Europe, but here in the U.K., the market is probably narrower. In other words: 'rock acts' in general, have a better chance of charting more highly and selling well in the U.K.

I think someone pointed out earlier that until Blue & Lonesome, and since EXILE, Stones albums generally underperformed in the UK; in fact Blue and Lonesome outsold every Stones album but Tattoo You and Some Girls since Exile.

There's obviously an explanation, I just don't know what it is!

Well, as I have said before, here in the U.K., it does very much seem as if the Stones have undergone a definite renaissance in popularity. That, in my opinion, is the reasoning for their seeming rise in popularity and greatly-improved album-sales. It really does seem that there has been a change in the air, regarding how they’re perceived. Take the New Musical Express. (NME) from the about he mid-1970’s through to the early 00’s, they absolutely rinsed the Stones. Somewhere online, you may be able to come across their ‘review’ of the Stones’ Shepherd’s Bush Empire performance from 1999; it’s not pretty. In fact, as recently as the Licks Tour, they were, largely, unfavourable. Now, they absolutely adore the Stones. Maybe, it can partly be put down to the NME giving-up their mantle as the voice of contemporary rock and alternative, but it’s a wider happening. The Stones, on home soil, are just flat-out cherished. Long may it continue!

Edit: but why the newly-found appreciation and nostalgia? Perhaps, in part, it could be to do with the lack of a 'current' and meaningful music-scene in the U.K. Tjere hasn't been one here, in the U.K., since the mid-1990's.

Reflecting on this album, played it in my car for a couple weeks until i put something else in the CD player, it's a good album but i doubt i will go back to it very often as it's not what i consider a Stones album.
That's not saying it's not good, just saying if i wanted that sound I'd listen to it from another band, as said before it will go on the back burner along with ABB.

Older music is listened to much more by young people in general in the streaming age. But the Stones have done a really amazing job in managing to have cross-generational appeal while being an ongoing band. It's quite a feat to be actively performing in your late 70s and still being perceived as cool by a significant portion of the younger generations. Who'd have thought, eh?

They're not the only band who draws in younger fans, you'd be surprised to see how many young people attend Springsteen gigs in some countries for example. But they have retained/reclaimed a coolness factor that's bigger than that of other artists imo.

First off with only two original members left it's not a Stones album, the fact there are no killer riffs therefore Keith doesn't really give a damn for this album leaves us with Mick, so it's a Mick album ( other than a few Keith tracks ) with Ronnie on it as a session musician.
Basically it's a Jagger/ Andrew Watts album with Keith and Ronnie contractually obligated to play on it abd promote it, I haven't heard Keith praise this album once, like he said he's just riding the wave now.
Got to hand it to Mick though, it's a good solo album after nearly 20 years of writers block, hey wait a minute maybe this is a Andrew Watts written album with a few of his Stones chums playing on it winking smiley

Whatever it is it's good, but it isn't the Stones.

Oh yeah, Merry Christmas.

I agree 100%. We may be in the minority on this board, but there are others who agree. As one critic wrote here

Watt did what he does and heavily processed and compressed Jagger’s vocals throughout the album so that the unique bottom end of his voice and his great sense of dynamics are totally missing. Pitch correction is constant and frequently obvious, eliminating the blues and R&B note-bending that is the hallmark of his style. Just enough essence of Jagger remains to satisfy the fans. Watt also mixed the vocals way up above the band, making Hackney Diamonds sound like a Jagger solo album. The signature Ronnie/Keith interplay is all but unheard because the guitars are so heavily compressed, distorted and equalized that they are hard to tell apart amid the grunge. Most importantly, the band’s unique, simultaneously ahead and behind the beat swing that made Jagger and Richards rock gods is quantized and “corrected” into that contemporary, generic stiff pound-and-thud.

This is not the band that I fell in love with. It's got sparks of brilliance here and there, and overall it is quite an accomplishment given their age. SSOH makes me tingle, but for the most part I'll pass.

That review is striving to be authoritative, but it's an opinion that doesnt ring true to my ears when I put on the album. There's wonderful Ronnie Keith weaving, I don't hear jagger too high in the mix, and yes, it is 'produced' heavily, but it works so well, it;'s become an album I love, and I do hear and feel Keith all over it. To call it a Jagger solo album, as KeefRiffhards does, doesnt ring to true to me. And Ronnie is a Rolling Stone and he is in no wayt session musician but integral and at his very best on record here! But hey, that's also just my opinion. Merry Christmas....

Ronnie is the guy who replaced the guy who replaced Brian. Technically he is a Stone, as in: official band member.
But really, are all members of Lynyrd Skynyrd 'real' band members too? I believe none of the original members are still there, like in that other southern band, Molly Hatchet, same story. Or take Kiss, or Judas Priest with only the singer and bassist left in the band, or Uriah Heep, only the guitarist left.
I do think the record is rather great, but a point could be made about how this is a proper Rolling Stones album or not. It's just that it doesn't strike me as anything other than that. Which to me is a good thing because I didn't like what I heard on the tour from Charlie's replacement.

Dammit, they are going to have a number one Christmas week album. Two months after its release. Santa Claus is busy.. (or a fan of them too..)

Otherwise, if we look at both singles and album top five, it's only the Stones, Swift and Johan Strauss not doing Christmas stuff... As far as singles go, the streaming era makes it certain that the charts will be full of nothing but Christmas songs. Well, that's what people are listening now.

Yeah i hear you Drew, SSOH is something else as you say spine tinglingly good and for that and a few other tracks I'm pleased they made this album.

But if there's another one in the can i hope Steve Jordan produces it, but from what ive heard Andrew Watt had already produced the songs that didn’t make it on HD.
I find with this album a lot of people really like it that maybe don't usually like or buy Stones albums, it obviously appeals to more people and that was the intention.
Just like when you see a Stones show, it's geared towards casual fans, so you get the hit singles but that's not the whole story of the Stones they have so much more to offer than the hits.

I like that review, condensed, that's the perfect word for the sound of this album, the sound is squashed down, condensed it's restricted and feels artificial, maybe that's why i like it but don't love it.

It is easier to find cross-party consensus in the Italian parliament than in a group of Stones' fans.

There is a reason for this.

Music fans in general don't like changes, and the Stones changed continuously along their whole career, following different trends, replacing key members, compromising between opposites, including in the mix new instruments, technologies etc.

As a result we have fans of the BJ era, of the MT era, of the RW era, of the BW era, of the R&B era, of the pop era, etc. etc.

How can HD make an exception?

In fact, given the above premises, I find it incredible that so many here on IORR love the album!
