"A Better Bang"?

Of course, this is only my humble opinion so it won't count for much. But I burned myself a version of "Bang" that I enjoy more than the good but flawed (not to mention top heavy) lp we got last year. I can rock out to it in the car and never find myself hitting the skip button. : ) Goes like this:

1. Rough Justice
2. Let Me Down Real Slow
3. Won't Take Long
4. Rain Fall Down
5. Back of My Hand
6. Place is Empty
7. Oh No Not You Again
8. Streets of Love
9. Look at What the Cat Dragged In
10. Laugh I Nearly Died
11. Under the Radar (thanks to the IORRer's that responded!)
12. Infamy


It's shorter, tighter, has a good balance and leaves out what I consider the kind of generic cock-rockers (no offense intended to those of you that are fans of the omitted songs). "Streets of Love" isn't my favorite, but it adds balance and I confess that I always find myself singing along (though I usually stop when I catch myself). Same goes for "It Won't Take Long" - decent but not a great song by any stretch. But it kind of needs another rocker. As for the other 10 tracks? LOVE them!

Anyway, it's official - "A Better Bang" is my favorite Stones record since "Some Girls"!

I think I've seen a bit similar some time ago here... if I remember right?

U got some "biggest mistakes" there though, can I call U Champ too?

Ok, have to leave U champs now. Have a nice evening!

Dump "Neo-Con" Add "Under The Radar" as the second track and "We Don't Wanna Go Home" as the last (before "Infamy"), ola, "A Better Bang." Anyway, that's how I did it though I must confess the line-up above appears very strong.

Nice choices, probably about the same ones I'd keep if I had to cut it back a few songs. But I am glad we have all the songs they gave us.

Mine too, but my version is somewhat different:

Side One: (yes, I know there are no sides on CDs, but I miss vinyl)
1. Rough Justice
2. Back Of My Hand
3. Oh No Not You Again
4. It Won't Take Long
5. Under the Radar
6. Laugh, I Nearly Died

Side Two:
7. She Saw Me Coming
8. Look What the Cat Dragged In
9. Rain Fall Down
10. This Place Is Empty
11. Dangerous Beauty
12. We Don't Wanna Go Home

I like this better than any album they've put out since Some Girls. I'm still enjoying it and still have it in heavy rotation. Sounds like a classic to me!

I Love the Album If I had to cut like three it'd be She Saw Me Coming, Look What Cat & We Don't Wanna Go Home. I could pass on these others I like quite a bit some more than others I love Let Me Down Slow!

I'm glad you weren't in charge of picking the tracks for the offical CD. The first two are my favorite songs on A Bigger Bang.

how does it qualify as 'A Better Bang' if you remove SSMC?

A Better Bang would go like this:

Rough Justice
Let Me Down Slow
It Won't Take Long
Rain Fall Down
Streets Of Love
Back Of My Hand
She Saw Me Coming
Biggest Mistake
This Place Is Empty (Keith)
1Oh No, Not You Again
Dangerous Beauty
Laugh, I Nearly Died
Sweet Neo Con
Look What The Cat Dragged In
Driving Too Fast
Infamy (Keith)

I would remove three songs and maybe add Under the Radar. I would get rid of She Saw Me Coming, Biggest Mistake and Sweet Neocon..
