I'd not pick any of those you listed but Id go with EXILE...hands down their very best album ever! After that I'd pick Sticky Fngers and Let It Bleed!

That is also my usual order but honestly someone says Beggars Banquet and I think of all the amazing cuts off that too. In reality on any give day for me those big 4 are interchangeable, the awesomeness is just so palatable.

Easy one : Bridges everyday

Hackney is IMO the weakest stones album of all time

Dirty Work, followed by Baggers Banquet.

I would also take a compilation or two. Big Hits + Through The Past...

If you had to pick just one Rolling Stones album, from each decade, should be the question.

60s Let It Bleed
70s Exile
80s Tattoo You
90s Voodoo Lounge
00s A Bigger Bang (by a nose)
10s Blue & Lonesome
20s Hackney Diamonds (though I reserve the right to change that, depending on how the next album sounds)

You know, that's still an impressive catalogue if that's all we're limited too.

Right then, here's a difficult question.

If you could only listen to albums from the 60s or albums from the 70's ?

No matter how much I love Ronnie's contribution, 60s without a doubt.

The singles from Come On to Honky Tonk is all that I need to live happy for the rest of my life!

..but thoughts of living without SF and Exile are as scary as living without BB and LIB.

If I were really put in that position, I just don't know which way I'd jump.

[I think I'd likely turn a funny colour and then explode]

DP and Spud, sure you have an argument there, yet Fingers and Exile, as I see them, somehow develop what was already there in Banquet and Bleed, they don't really add anything new. So, yes, if I lost all my post 60s albums, I would miss Fingers and Exile, but still I could survive.

On the other hand, the big pop hits of 65/67 that literally "made" the stones huge, Paint it Black, Lady Jane, Ruby Tuesday, etc. etc. have no counterpart in what was released in the 70s

If the stones called it quits after Bleed, they would still be one of the greatest.

I agree (to some extent), and some of the songs on SF and Exile were written in the 60s anyway.

They wouldn't exactly be forgotten if they called it quits after 1966, either smiling smiley

1972-1973 live.Bridges is the best ,followed closely by Voodooand Hackney.Steel Wheels has some great stuff ,including one of Keith’s greatest songs, Slipping Away.To me a Bigger Bang is their worst album next to Dirty Work

For me this is certainly top 5. I'm not sure it breaks into the top 4. Mainly because I can barely decide my favourite out of that top 4.

It’s like saying if you were to keep just one kid. Difficult because songs depend on your mood but I would have to pick Exile due to its length. Album to give up is pretty easy Undercover
