QuoteRocky Dijon Not trying to answer for skytrench, but Mick once said "success colors everything" and words to the effect that if you have a lot of success, you think the album is wonderful and if you don't, you pick it apart. That's UNDERCOVER to me. I think it's a brilliant album that I love, but it was a relative disappointment. Sure it's the sort of disappo

In my post that Rocky Dijon commented on, I ought to have written that what followed UNDERCOVER was a deepening of WW III, I acknowledge that. As to the background for Mick Jagger's solo career plans, I thought most of all about that split between "overground" and "underground" that he himself must have noticed as also a keen observer. I don't really know anythin

There is something about essence - it's why TATTOO YOU and Start Me Up was such a fantastic success and their last huge LP: it had something. UNDERCOVER was completely different - too differe

QuoteLazarusSmith QuoteWitness That means that I would not wish for George Martin to have iuntervened towards the freakiness of the album, making it in parts more "normal" or whatever. I find fascinating the pt of view that Martin "normalized" The Beatles, or that their output was somehow "pretty," esp in contrast to the more rough-around-the-edges sound of The Sto

As at the moment few other lovers of SATANIC MAJESTIES REQUEST are active in this thread, I will repeat myself from other threads by saying that this album to me as whole really is on par with the socalled and by me uncontested four great studio albums '68 - '72. That means that I would not wish for George Martin to have intervened towards the freakiness of the album, making it in parts

For me it is more than enough to quote the post with the words of reason. QuoteDandelionPowderman The freakiness would be gone.. For it means that the special greatness of that album would have departed. And much of the acquired experience that made possible the character of the ensuing albums.

QuoteSwayed1967 Jagger should take responsibility for the endless procrastination by parting ways with the Stones. Seriously, at this point he’s become a liability. Anyways, we don’t want a new Stones album with six songs that smell like ‘England Lost.’ Keith and Ronnie can do all the writing and they can hire John Travolta or Leo Sayer (who’s a dead ringer for Mick btw so most would never know t

QuoteHairball If they're aiming or striving for some form of brand new/contemporary method of release with the new album, they sure didn't show any hint of it with Blue and Lonesome. Old school all the way no matter how you look at it - traditional blues covers with twelve tunes in an album format with two videos to promote it. No matter what one thinks of the music itself, it seems t

The issue in my opinion is whether the Stones might do something that would be more or less new for them to do, in contrast to what for instance "You Got Me Rocking" meant at its arrival. I don't in any way experience the two songs on the single by Jagger and "friends" as dated, possibly revealing that there has been much music that I have not heard. I disagree though th

Quotewalkingthedog I like both sides of this single too. Don't understand all the negativity here. The same goes for Streets Of Love. One of the few songs I never skip on Grrr. As to the single's both sides and as to the reception of the single here, I fully agree. I may have said so more than once.

QuoteSwayed1967 QuoteDandelionPowderman QuoteDoxa An incredible tune. That's Jagger solo at best - being as far as possible from the safe waters of the Stones, and actually reinventing himself - like he said, that vocal melody was out of his reach but he was forced to do it (by Dave). The musical track is pure 80's pop, as it should be and that's why it funnily makes the difference

Quotewonderboy Re: Party Doll, the song could have been written over lunch by any one of a thousand Nashville songwriters. It could have perhaps been lifted by the performance, but by this time, Jagger was all artifice and posing. It's a shame that the singer who could make you feel he was distraught when he 'saw you stretched out in Room 10-09' doesn't even sell pathos on thi

Many love making lists. I instead like to ask: When is a rock song also a rock & roll song, and when is it not? With examples to illustrate. Besides, when does a rock & roll song remain a rock & roll song only, and when does the song (with 24FPS's words on one occasion) transcend rock & roll and enter another sphere?

As I said, sometimes we might be looking for different things in songs. Nothing wrong with that. Yes, but with a reference to football losses for what was implied about politics.
