QuoteRocky Dijon I believe "Ever Changing World" was one of the first tracks Don Was mentioned in an L.A. Times interview around July 1997. It was actually one of the first tracks I remember reading about (via Rolling Stone magazine). I guess it's fortunate the title never struck me as something I needed to hear ASAP. Keith's bluesy version of "Might As Well Get Jui

My first impression is that England Lost is the more memorable of the two. It's got a genuinely cool vibe and does a better job of injecting a little social commentary. Gotta Get A Grip is an okay funk tune but I'd put it in the category of Mick's past songs that were built around a groove that doesn't really go anywhere.

QuoteHairball "Elvis Presley’s The Wonder Of You focuses on the iconic artist’s unmistakable voice with lush new orchestral accompaniment". - Elvis Seems a bit odd,has anybody heard any of this? It's actually a sequel to last year's "If I Can Dream" album. The concept takes original Elvis vocals and pairs them with newly-recorded music from the Royal Philharmon

Hits Daily Double has it at #4 on the Sales Plus Streaming chart and #2 on the Album Sales chart. What's impressive is that this was accomplished without a supertour or the kind of massive marketing push that accompanied albums like Voodoo Lounge, Forty Licks, and A Bigger Bang.

QuoteKRiffhard Mick told that he wants an 'eclectic' album. He is totally anti-nostalgia and he loves modern sound. I don't think his 40 demos are 'honest and raw' as B&L. We can only hope that B&L changes his mind! Mick loves to be relevant though, which is not the same as wanting to be tied to any specific flavor of the month. If B&L had simply sold w

Quotemailexile67 sure...But the "concept" is the same! A better comparison would be Johnny Cash's American Recordings series, as Blue And Lonesome is very true to the essence of the Stones and has garnered critical acclaim. If they do decide to cash in on this success with a bunch of similar albums over the next few years, I can think of far worse scenarios. It would certainl

QuoteLorenz No please, no more cover albums. 1 was cool, more would be lame and cement their reputation as not having any creative force left. Yes, I suspect Mick will be more motivated now to deliver an album of new material and will want to avoid becoming stuck in a rut of making cover albums. I always had the impression that a blues album was his way of testing the waters. Some fans want

QuoterustyThe Stones records 5 songs 11 Dec. 6 songs 14 Dec. But only 1 song on the last day.??????? Can't believe it. Wasn't the last track Hoo Doo Blues? (Don't have the booklet with me right now.) If so, Mick has said Ronnie wasn't too familiar with that song and implied it took a while for the band to work out their arrangement. That may explain why the last

QuotegeorgelicksDon't take Hits' number as the real ones, also the last update (Friday) is the main one. Yet, the official numbers will be released on Sanday night. Does this mean the album is still projected to hit around 120-125k?

QuoteHairballA country covers album might be a better option, but again I don't see it happening. If they don't complete an album of new originals, I could easily see a sequel to Blue and Lonesome given the welcome reception and success of this one. Yes, I'm not really sure there's going to be a big demand for the Stones to branch out into covering other genres. Rod Stewar

Quotemr_dja Only if Mick agreed to do the country album without attempting to affect a "psudo-country/southern accent". The reggae album I'm not really all that sure about. Two others that I'd like to hear: 1) A soul/r&b covers album 2) A rock & roll covers album both with new covers as opposed to new version of the soul/r&b/r&r songs they've al

I'd also be curious to hear what georgelicks' contacts at Universal are saying after this debut. Personally, I think it's a combination of being the kind of novelty concept that tends to be an easy sell around the holidays (thin

My hope was that a blues album would do for the Stones what American Recordings and Great American Songbook did for Johnny Cash and Rod Stewart, respectively. All of them are the kind of simple, easy=to-sell concept albums that tend to do well for classic artists. (RCA is currently enjoying a similar kind of success with the Elvis and Royal Philharmonic series.) It'll be interesting to

Quotewhitem8Unnecessary when you could have done so much more. Apparently not, as this video attracted more views in a day than Hate To See You go has in nearly a month. So credit to Kristen Stewart for helping sell the album, as she generated plenty of headlines of her own just for appearing in the video.

Quote35love I did not get that the Zebra was post nuclear world (can't spell 'A' word) So the Zebra escaped the zoo? Or was released by someone. The empty streets, burning car, and scarcity of gasoline are all meant to convey the setting. Much like the references to zombies in Doom And Gloom, we can probably chalk it up to Mick recognizing the popularity of post-apocalyptic

He's asking where she managed to find gasoline (and she's prepared to kill him with a tire iron) because the video is taking place in a post-apocalyptic setting. My first thought when the zebra

Quotetomcasagranda One odd thing has happened with Blue & Lonesome, which doesn't normally happen with recent Stones studio albums, be they band or solo, and that is that I haven't skipped any of the tracks. Yeah, I feel like all the tracks have the same energy, which means it doesn't really matter which one happens to be playing. I may intend to play a certain track but if

To me it's like an entire album of Tallahassee Lassie...that sort of loose, sloppy, primal energy that just makes you feel like you gotta f***, fight, or do anything you want. It wouldn't surprise me if this ends up being a sleeper hit as it basically distills everything that's cool about the Stones into just over 40 minutes. At this point saying it's the band's best

QuoteHairballAnd what's not to like about the cover of Crosseyed Heart? A simple black and white picture of a grinning Keith w/his arms crossed and his gnarled fingers on full display. Every picture tells a story, and this one says alot about Keith and his solo album. Yes, I don't recall any kind of consensus about Crosseyed Heart being a terrible cover upon release. It not only d

QuoteebalmNot sure how one can knock the fact that it was recorded in 3 days (not 2 like the article says) and knock the fact there were no overdubs. Perhaps he should go back and listen to Superheavy. Yeah even though he's trying to spin it as laziness on the band's part, it's still laughable that he would single out that aspect of the recording. That's like someone critic

QuoteHairballKeith might deserve some of the credit as well just by letting the minimal production of his last solo album do the talking. There's something to be said about keeping things simple: Yes, I'd love to think Crosseyed Heart's production impressed Mick enough to try something more stripped-down. It's even more exciting to think how Blue And Lonesome could end up

QuoteWuudy I like the artwork. It's simple and conveys the message. I don't understand why people here have such a problem with it. Who cares, it's just an album cover. Most people won't even buy the physical album but buy it online. I think that sentiment is the fundamental issue some fans have: The cover implies something disposable, which also means it fails to accurately

So I definitely think Don Was and Mick deserve some credit for resisting th
