This is the Achilles heel of the album. I heard it from day one.

What do you mean?

It`s quite a common expression. Achilles heel = weak point.

You think so? I’m surprised. To me it’s one of the best on there. The best on this album are these:
SSOH
WWW
TMS
RSB
GC

First thing I thought of when I saw the title listed...flashback to 1977.

Interesting, as most see it as the strong point. The song, that is smiling smiley

the more representative track of the album, lyrically of course, and musically. a different (pop) way to rock with a killer riff by Keith, according to reports

I´m struggling a bit with the song as previously stated, but I`m not the only one. Here`s a link to the Aftenposten review of the album. -Mainly positive, but that song is called "poor man´s rock" and "terrible". There´s a paywall, but you can hear the review, admittedly with an awkward pronounciation of some words, by pushing a button if you understand Norwegian:

Best song representing the core and essence of the new album. Great vocal delivery and guitars. Cool solo followed by bridge about "dreary streets of London not promising much" and with beautiful harmonies.

Not a review of great insight. He lists Depending On You, Driving Me Too Hard and Tell Me Straight as the weak points of the album. The last two at least seem to be fan favourites (and mine too). He also thinks that Darryl Jones is playing on the whole record.

Don't think so, because the melodic structure is totally different.

Ask myself exactly that from time to time, wasn't it mentioned somewhere here that he's "off to Cuba"? Anyway, I really miss him.

Absolutely. I think it's no coincidence that WWW was one of the few new songs that already had their live debut at the recent club gig... It's a song that cries to be performed live!

This is one of the songs I love most!
Simply perfect, beautiful lyrics, beautiful Mick's voice, the riff, the solo.
The Stones still manage to amaze me in 2023, this is fantastic!

Agree. His take on those songs is way off the mark. The album deserves better insight.

I found it weak at first, but I agree that all of the "new wave" talk is close to the mark, even if Mess It Up is the actual new-wave/post-disco song - I hear a bit of a Clash nod especially in both the vocal and instrumental accents of the London-bridge-of-sorts, just like I hear a touch of Dolls in Bite My Head Off(, Frankenstein). Sort of charming.

One track where Charlie would have certainly drummed VERY differently is WWW, the drumming is a complete slugfest, an athletic performance of sorts, tasteless. Besides I'm pretty sure he speeds up towards the end.

I couldn't believe my ears when Paul Sexton said that track had "great drumming" during the 1 hour special !

Oddly, the drumming feels more subtle on the live version, now available courtesy of Justin's channel : [www.youtube.com]

I don't disagree with this - Charlie brought a sense of swing that's essentially absent from this record. But in his absence they also seem to be pursuing musical territory they'd largely avoided previously, with some not-uninteresting results.
