I am always staggered by, impressed by, and in awe of, the extraordinary knowledge and expertise possessed by so many good people who post on this site. My very sincere compliments, and thanks, to all involved.

Quotematxil QuoteSomeGuy QuoteMartinB QuoteSomeGuy I sort of have a natural habit to want to 'see' through the obvious sound aspects of a record and immediately estimate what I think about the songs as compositions and the performance.

Hackney Diamonds is back at No.1 on the mid-week UK Album Chart. However it does not yet qualify as an official No.1 charting position. That is reserved for the full week chart released at 17.45 hours UK time every Friday. Nonetheless it is a very strong indication that it will indeed be at the chart summit this Friday. No doubt helped get there by the surge in sales created by the release o

Quotetreaclefingers Quotestanlove Quotetreaclefingers Quotestanlove Why are they selling tickets half a year in advance? Makes no sense ( especially at their ages ) to me and they didn’t used to do that. At their ages it seems like a good chance that the tour won’t even happen. Love your contributions. You didn’t answer the question. I'm not obliged to. Touché my friend!

Quotepeoplewitheyes Could someone explain why anyone would want to buy so many editions of the same album? I don't mean with this live cd, but people buying up to a dozen versions of the same original HD album. It's like a mania or an obsession and I just can't understand it. Can't these consumers see they're being played like a violin? Being played like an entire orche

QuoteStoneage Maybe 3-4 new songs in the tour start which usually goes down to 1-2 while the tour progress. But this is a really short tour so who knows? In the end it comes down to Richards' abilities and Jagger's patience. By the standards of more recent tours this tour is actually fairly long. Typically they have been playing 15 or so dates over the past few tours. This time they a

QuoteBeastyBurdeny I don't think OOT is going to be played this tour. I think it was a SIXTY treat and will be bumped for a HD number. I agree about Out Of Time. I think it will be dropped. Whether it will make way for an HD track is something I await with interest. And I have noted what JivinSisterFanny has said about setlists in the 90s. My recollection is that setlists were more fluid b

QuoteDandelionPowderman This time the tour is billed «Hackney Diamonds-tour». IMO, they're more confident with the material from HD than they've been with new songs for decades. My guess is that 4-5 HD-songs will be staples in the setlist. Well a big Amen to that Mr DP. Here's hoping! I'm more pessimistic, but then maybe I'm just old and grumpy?? There certainly are

The UK has embraced Hackney Diamonds a great deal more enthusiastically than it has been in the US. Already gone from the Top 30 albums on the Billboard 200 in its third week on release. Never getting above No.3 on the same chart. Here it Britain it is showing a great deal more staying power. Scheduled to achieve its fourth week inside the Top Ten this Friday.

If Hackney Diamonds was released in 2005, I'm not sure it would've been as well received as A Bigger Bang.

QuoteHardRiffin These comparisons with past albums that reviewers make have really pissed me off. This 'Best album since Some Girls/Tatoo You' has become really cloying and ridiculous. Every album has its own history and must be contextualised with internal and external dynamics and many factors. Let's just enjoy this new album and i'm sure we won't be disappointed!

It will certainly be their turn again. Yeah, of course they will! Return to the US in 2028 I mean. After all Mick and Keith will 'only' be 85 or so by then. And Ronnie a mere 80ish. Kids really.
