Mick's suit has a good color.

I won´t write a complex analysis.

At first listen, I thought: "A load of good songs!" Yes, HD is a bunch of brilliant half-singles.

But... now I realize what happened: HD leaves me with my head full of earworms. Get Close, Angry, Depending On You, Whole Wide World, Mess It Up, Driving Me Too Hard...

All those songs run continously through my mind. An experience, no other Stones album caused ever before.

Ok, maybe the choruses on HD are a bit poppy - but they do their job!!

I can only listen to four tracks: the two singles (both very good), Keith's track (quite good), and the blues (which is not bad).

All the other crap is Mick's solo record-like garbage.

I don't understand why it was necessary to release an album.

Of course I know, because Mick wanted it and old Keith agreed for the sake of peace.

(And I haven't even mentioned the rhythm section yet. Oh my God! Charlie!)

There are two real Rolling Stones quality tracks, the two singles.

But the campaign was in true Rolling Stones style, I liked it.

It is not that difficult to understand. Artists do that sometimes. It's a free world, and neither is neceesary for anyone to listen it.

Of course, I just don't understand why unworthy content had to be added to the great Rolling Stones catalog.

I actually feel sorry that you cannot enjoy this to the extent that most of us are able to. It's a hot album.

Please don't take it as criticism...everyone's taste is different.

I'm just finding this almost shockingly good. True it isn't the same as the rest of the catalogue but that's where I find it's strength. Some of the songs have strayed into more 'pop' territory, but still sounds like the Stones.

It's like the Stones doing country or disco or reggae or pick-a-style. Always still sounds like them.

"The Rolling Stones with best album start in 2023 at number 1"

"Three years ago, The Rolling Stones achieved a record in the Official German Charts as the oldest artists ever to sit on the throne of the single hit list. Now the music legends have gone one better - and achieved several records at once with their new album: 'Hackney Diamonds' not only landed the most successful start of the year in Germany, the most successful start since Rammstein's 'Zeit' one and a half years ago and the strongest start by an international artist since ABBA's 'Voyage' two years ago, but also the best-selling vinyl in the launch week to date. What's more, the album marks Mick Jagger & Co.'s eleventh number one record overall."

Their new Rolling Stones studio album "Hackney Diamonds "is highly recommended. Unbelievable, in 1963 I witnessed rag and fish farmers with handcarts in Rotterdam. Vegetable and milk man with horse and cart. Nobody had a shower, water was made hot on gas stove, and that with cold water poured into a tub on a piece of plastic. There was no telephone, it was by post or telegram or Morse signals.
No fridge etc. In winter, coal or oil stove. Daily life and houses and streets were still pretty much the same as well before World War II. And then the Rolling Stones already existed. And now 60 years later a new album is truly grandiose, Gospel/Rock/Country/ Blues/Ballads. It's amazing what these 80-year-olds have accomplished with the new studio album. That I still get to experience this is a gift.

While I do get the comparisons saying this is a Mick solo album, for me personally I don't really care for Mick's solo stuff but I love Hackney Diamonds. To my ears, this album was produced by a guy who is a fan of every era of the Stones career and all (or most) of those influences can be heard throughout Hackney Diamonds. I also get the complaints about the production style and can see why some wouldn't like it but I'm thankful that it suits my ears well. My only real complaint is the horrible mastering for most of the digital releases. The vinyl sounds so much better than the brickwalled stuff I've been able to stream. I've yet to hear the Atmos release.
This is a collection of songs, many of which get stuck in my head and I find myself singing randomly throughout the day. I'd never have expected this and am happy that I get to listen to new Stones tracks that I want to sing and dance to.

Here's hoping the Stones get the cover of the US Rolling Stone, but I won't be surprised if they don't. I like Rolling Stone, but it's clear the US version is trying to focus on the younger crowd now.

I've been taking a break from HD for a few days, in anticipation for a little listening party tonight after I get my physical copies! Totally psyched.

If they want to move physical copies of the magazine (and I have no idea if that's even their business model anymore), having them on the cover is guaranteed to move product. Look at all the physical copies of media we're willing to buy.

I haven't bought a copy of Rolling Stone in over 2 decades, but I would buy if they're on the cover now.

I agree. I sure hope they make the US cover. Stones fans are definitely the better market for people buying physical media.

Hi GL!!
Do you think it can reach number 1 in the UK? Regarding the US, it would already be a great achievement to enter the top 5.

The UK #1 is in the bag, it will be announced in an hour, over 70.000 units sold.

The US Top 10 will be out on Sunday with an early prediction tonight on Hits Daily Double.
