QuoteDoxa Nice, detailed reviews by plusplusjames and MrBobMartini. Lots of great insights. Thank you. I am not busy reviewing anything yet, but I think what is absolutely great in this album is how different in many ways it is compared to A BIGGER BANG (and, of course, to BLUE & LONESOME). Like they are almost a different band. In a way that also works for seeing the unique, raw nature of

QuoteSpud Quoteplusplusjames WHERE HACKNEY DIAMONDS FITS IN THE STONES CANON This brings me to an uncomfortable discussion, one that must be had as we contemplate the late period of the band. The question is, what does the band do if Mick leaves (a question that I cannot ask without some emotional agony). Sweet Sounds of Heaven hints at the answer, one that I have suspected ever since I w

QuoteJMoisica Can we talk about how great Ronnie is on this record? He is playing such tasty, Faces-era rock and roll guitar throughout this record. An essential part of the sound. I think that’s Ronnie playing those beautiful Taylor-like licks on Depending on You…. Classic and resonant!!!

WHERE HACKNEY DIAMONDS FITS IN THE STONES CANON The band’s last studio album, A Bigger Bang, released in 2005, struck me as a competently made rock and roll record. In terms of my comment made in the Giant’s stadium parking lot, “every part of my life, there’s been a stones album that’s been a soundtrack,” that album was no exception. I knew exactly who in my life was “Oh No, Not You Again,”

QuoteMr. Jimi Not that anyone values my opinion but I like it, but I don't love it. I've listened to both versions a few times now and the production and instruments are top notch. My criticism is like Angry, there is no repeating chorus (same lyric) that I can latch on to. So for me both songs, and I do like them both, do not have that consistent chorus hook that draws me in and keeps

I am blown away by this track. It’s exquisite; to my ears it’s a descendant of Melody. Gospel and jazz have long been overlooked genres by the band and represent new areas of growth and exploration. Bring it!

“You need time to really get into it to be able to sing as if you know it really well,” Jagger says. “Because how many times have I done compared to how many times I’ve done ‘Paint It, Black’? You don’t have to do it 2,000 times, but you can’t just do it on take three, because you don’t really know your own song. You have to learn the song, how it would be if you’ve done it onstage a few times.

Quotetreaclefingers Quoterbk The Stones recorded enough material for two albums in the "Some Girls" sessions. The follow up was "Emotional Rescue." Be careful what you wish for. You're being cautionary? That's a fabulous album...some tracks definitely stronger than material on Some Girls. If Emotional Rescue had come out in place of Goats Head Soup, it would hav

Quotesarahunwin Very disappointed in the video. I absolutely don’t understand why they feel they had to show themselves so young and couldn’t be in the present moment I think it would’ve been so much better if they had allowed their old selves to perform. What does everybody else think? I thought the dueling billboards, each one using the theme from a different album, was quite cool. And yes,

Quotebengigan If they tour behind the album, I have trouble imagining modern shows that have 4-5 slots of new songs. But that is what they did in 2005. The Ottawa show I went to had Rough Justice, Back of my Hand, Infamy and Oh No, Not You Again. There may have even been shows that year with 6 new songs if they mixed in This Place is Empty and Streets of Love. By 2006 I think they were only do

Quotebv Personally I think the "Angry" clip is way to short to give any real understanding of the song. I would compare the Hackney Diamonds marketing with the NME Exile flexi we got in 1972. I played the flexi to pieces (I bought three copies of that NME issue). The proplem with internet and marketing is we get so much more fragmented teasers. An ad in a local paper. A countdown

QuoteVoodooLounge13 I have to agree the hype is not for us, but rather for the millions who wear shirts with a tongue on it and have NO clue what it means!

QuoteTopi I don't think so. Especially Doom & Gloom and One More Shot (the latter wasn't exactly their finest hour, btw) - those were recorded 11 years ago. Why re-release them now? Ghost Town was thematically their lockdown song. That ship has sailed as well. (By the way, it seems Doom & Gloom and One More Shot were recorded on 21-23 August, 2012 - 11 years ago this week!

So, after registering, can we expect weekly e-mails to buy colored vinyl collector's editions of Hot Rocks and key fobs? Put another way, does anyone think that the band would actually distribute VIP tickets to club shows this way?

Thank you. This sums it up for a lot of us. I am an avowed "deep tracks" fan and I really don't need to hear JJF played in a rush or with the annoying Ronnie hook over and over again. I'm not a traitor. I'm a fan. This band and their songs have deep meaning for me. Read my review of Goats Head Soup here on this site, if you don't believe me. So, I'm c
