QuoteGasLightStreetThe enjoyment of HACKNEY DIAMONDS is different than me getting those albums back then yet it has the same wonderment: what is this? Steel Wheels was my gateway drug to the Stones, so I had that same mad rush of slowly getting to discover their back catalogue. In my case, I remember record stores at the mall had big displays filled with cassettes that each had the Stones logo

In the spirit of those compilations, here's my attempt at a basic representation of their 21st Century output with a couple of curveballs thrown in:   01. Don't Stop 02. Streets of Love 03. Doom and Gloom 04. Ride `Em On Down 05. Sweet Sounds of Heaven 06. Living in a Ghost Town 07. Angry 08. Champagne and Reefer (live with Buddy Guy) 09. Rough Justice 10. Whole Wide World

Live at Racket is such a glorious little shot of salvation, makes me wish they had played just a couple more songs. Would've loved to have seen Live By The Sword unveiled or maybe Ride 'Em On Down dusted off for the intimate setting. But I also love that it's a proper club gig, with Racket just giving this band of upstarts half an hour to try and win over the crowd. Goddamm, I

It's definitely not what I was expecting but the twist ending is good. The snippet of "Angry" reminds me of "Off The Hook" being used at the end of the "She Was Hot" video. And it's always good to be reminded of "She Was Hot".

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. I can't speak for others here, but I personally have been melting discs of Hackney Diamonds down and injecting them into my veins.

I don't think there was any real backstory to the song's removal. No one actually complained about it, as far as I'm aware. Mick just decided to drop it from the setlist on that tour. But if I had to guess, I assume Mick did it for the same reason he changed the lyrics to "Some Girls" during the `99 tour. It was just a diplomatic way of avoiding an unnecessary hea

Mick and Keith meeting in that train station is a fixed point in Time, which means there is no scenario in which our universe- or any universe, for that matter- could continue to exist without the encounter. That's how important the meeting was.

I was really hoping for more falsetto in the remix, not less. But it's cool.

I'm fully on board with Mick leaning into the Brit accent on a few tracks, no doubt as a nod to the overall Hackney theme. "Whole Wide World" was an instant standout for me, primarily because it was so unexpected. I'm beginning to think a good litmus test for the band might be to see if a song makes diehard fans grumble or pushes them out of their comfort zone. Ronnie men

I think "Depending On You" would've been a big hit in the 90s, when MTV and VH1 were still relevant and would've given the Stones a big push. It's basically what I wanted from a track like "Already Over Me", so it does put me in mind of that late 90s era in addition to the above-mentioned 70s songs. Just a really great hook and Mick is excellent throughout.

"Mess It Up" feels like something fans would regard as a minor classic if it had been included on Wandering Spirit. However, since it's on a Stones album we have to do that thing where we pretend as if The Rolling Stones should never make an effort to sound commercial, which of course is patently absurd. I'll admit the start originally had me fearing another Stones-By-Numb

Quotejohn lomax Tell Me Straight is as good as slipping Away or Thru and Thru (to my ears it sounds a bit like both of those songs) Yeah those are the same two it reminded me of. I also felt Dreamy Skies evoked No Expectations and there's definitely a strong Some Girls/Tattoo You vibe on several of the tracks. But...WOW...What a great @#$%& album!

"Angry" sounds so @#$%& good. I can't wait to hear the country and gospel influenced songs with this kind of production. Even Mick's vocals on the high parts sound better than anything since...Bridges To Bablyon, maybe? It's clear they learned from Blue and Lonesome that less can be more when it comes to the track list. The reference to this being the start of a &qu

QuoteGazza Enjoyed the press conference. They were all on good form and seemed happy to be there. Yes, Fallon may not be anyone's first choice for this kind of thing, but it's clear he helped put the band at ease which led to a lot of good lines. I also can't see any other host getting Mick to start singing "Off The Hook"!

What the @#$%&?! Well this is a nice surprise! Just a cool, laid-back song that feels like a natural progression from the Blue & Lonesome sessions. I love how the harp solo leads into the spooky little breakdown. Great timing to do this right after their standout One World performance, and the video is a deft reminder that the Stones are still capable of capturing little moments in ti

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.

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.
