QuoteWeLoveToPlayTheBlues Contemporary? That's the DUMBEST term applied to music next to 'relevance'. When new music is made it's always contemporary, regardless of anything about it. Yes, but this has not happened so often during the last decades, due to fewer releases. I would therefore very much like to have the privilege once again to listen to Stones music that fo

QuoteWeLoveToPlayTheBlues QuoteKRiffhard I don't think it's subjective to say that these songs aren't on the 'high standards' of the greatest r'n'r band in the world: Keys to your love, Let Me Down Slow, Streets of Love, Losing my Touch, Brand New Car, Dangerous Beauty, Stealing my heart, Suck on the jugular, Driving too fast, Low Down, Infamy, Already Over Me,

QuoteStonesTod could someone translate this into something coherent? It is not agreement on which tracks that are good and not that good. It means that a song that which is a socalled filler to one person, might be an attraction or at any rate good enough for another. And this picture seems to be more prevalent for Stones songs from after '68 - '72 than during or before those years

QuoteKRiffhard ............................................... . But if i consider 40 Licks new songs and last two albums, especially ABB, they don't have 'high standards' and many songs are just fillers with very poor lyrics. These are signs of lack of inspiration. So, if you consider the use of old outtakes a loss of credibility for the band, imho it's the only opportun

To have it said in encyclopedias of rock in the future that they were a creative band in the course of 50 years or more, I think the Stones have got to release a studio album of new songs, even if it be represented with one song only during concerts. And fans who would not have such an album, might abstain from buying it themselves, instead of denying others the privilege to obtain one album m

As only an occasional reader of (and writer on ) IORR's Tell Me I would first like to refer to the sometimes stated three alternative major views of Rolling Stones musical output as I understand them. They imply musical horizons, that often supply us with yardsticks, with which we tend to measure this lifelong band's musical achievements. Else, it might be to much for one person to take

A highly interesting thread for me as only an occasional reader of IORR. So many contrasting thoughts, provoking a varying mixture of agreement and disagreement on my part. To comment on all of it would take too much time. Only one isolated point: QuoteBroomWagon .....................................................

My wish for the point in time when (or if) the band will decide to stop its existence, but would like to do a tour or a couple of shows, please do not call it a farewell. It would be too emotional to fully enjoy the occasion in my view. And I would much prefer that a stop of existence is something that only happens, without being decided on. Each and every tour I have been to one, two or four

And if there might be also a contemporary sign of musical creativity - that is, another studio album expressing the outlook and feel of the Rolling Stones on the world and life of 2012 - at least a great minority among fans would take a special delight in it. Even if a majority of writing fans on IORR is certain to voice heavy criticism directed against everything that is completely new. Reme

Almost any time tracks are nominated in these threads to be cut off, with the apparent ambition to Ā«improveĀ» an album, numbers I fancy, tend to be among them. Consequently, I disagree. Apart from that, I take the opposite view, I am so pleased and thankful for any track in addition I can obtain that this wonderful band finds good enough and suited.

Another day, maybe another point of view. There are of course other gems. However, one of them is and will always be the fourth verse of "No Expectations".

I have wondered whether the misunderstanding, by the way cleared up in an early post on this very board (at a time when I myself had not yet obtained a vinyl version of the album), about whose point of view is taken during the verses of "Sweet NeoCon", in contrast to the short "answers", might have contributed to an amount of bad publicity. That is, some challenging lines are
