QuoteMathijs QuoteMadMetaphoricalMax I've always loved the long instrumental Munich Hilton, but it appears it's from later sessions than B&B.... The best-known version is from Paris 1977, but they did takes from 1975 to 1983, with parts of Dancing Girls added to it. Mathijs IS the 1977 one with vocals? It's the (very lo fi bootleg) of the instrumental 12-minute version t

Funny to see the boy Damon losing it at the Coachella audience because they didn't know his biggest hit song and didnt want to sing its crappy chorus. He is the gift that keeps giving, but now he should give it up... As for Mogwai, I wouldn't even bother to flush them down Glasgow' worst sh*tter if they all died on it. That's one group that should have died young ....

"HD is excellent. It won't surprise me in 10 or 15 years when the Stones are done or dead that HD is considered amongst their best LPs" I have a strong premonition that you will be proved right! It's lean, mean, a shower and a grower, it's not overstuffed, every track has something good going for it, which cannot be said of most legacy albums - recent Who and Macca ones

'It's not great bass playing'. I bow to higher knowledge, but it sounds fab to me and sounds like a great launch pad for Ronnie's blistering solo, which I love.

People get in to different songs and albums in a variety of ways, which can be interesting to hear about and identify with, if you are a fan of the band. But when people hate an album, what they have to say about gets boring and repetitive REAL quick. And I've had a lifetime of haters in print or in person telling everyone how much they hate the Rolling Stones. 80s music hacks were the worst

I do love both. Back in 2015, I reviewed Cross Eyed Heart and thought it was among the best of new releases from the Stones world in a long time (the vaults were already putting out gems from the archives). Blue and Lonesome I also liked a lot, and Little Rain will always be a top 10 Stones fave for me - but then comes Hackney Diamonds and it's a step change in focus, quality, cohesiveness a

Damn, I've missed all those pages where ' the eternal "HD is the best things since the invention of the wheel". It's more intriguing that some people get exercised on a fan board by people who really *like* the new album, rather than offloading thirty years of disappointment at meh studio albums onto what is a really brilliant new one, which is something that no one at a

If you imagine Hackney Diamonds has avoided negative criticism, you have not been paying attention to this site! Still it's been a good mix and more in favour than against - and I see more people coming out to say how much they like the album now than in the first six months of post-release 'hyperbole'

Sleeveface Rolling Stones album covers! The second one of Black and Blue (see below) is brill. In other news, there is news of a mash-up of the entire Emotional Rescue album featuring the vocal of Mark E Smith from The Fall's Grotesque album of the same year. I've heard a snippet and it is a genius mash. LInk here, but out of stock right now

Yeah, I left it to one side for a few weeks, then came back to it after a long day at work, and it's still fantastic, still a miraculous achievement, I still play it all the way through, still thinking, this one is a classic. As for the documentary, it should have come out soon after the album, if it was filmed at those sessions. Maybe to coincide with the Racket set. Maybe when they tour,

The Alley Cat bar in the basement of Regent Sound is an excellent spot. Also, Richmond - EEl Pie Island, what was the Station Hotel opposite the train station, and where Nandos now is, on Richmond Bridge, was a cafe where the v young Stones ate, I've heard. The Wick! Have a drink in the Roebuck pub opposite, and look down on wonderful view of The Thames from the terrace overlooking Petersham

I loved The Wall when it came out, I was about 15 - side 1 and 2 especially. Sides 3 and 4 felt a bit indulgent, even then. I started to dislike it after the movie came out - all that bombast. I always hated The Final Cut. After that, I went right off Waters, and more back to the Syd years, and his solo albums. I love the music in Animals, the ambience it has. I think the lyrics are a bit crap.

DSOTM's being better than anything else ever is not a fact at all, but may be the oddest, most singular article of faith I've read on here. It's great, but don't you find it ... portentous? Especially as you get older. And Waters, now, infects his own pool of work, for me. Piper is a better album IMO!! And Wish You Were Here, too. That has aged better for me. Aside from which

There's a lot of crafting, care and detail on these songs, even if it's just where the handclaps begin, or where there is a little twist of a counter-riff to strengthen the whole structure. More so than on quite a number of their albums, and if it's a different modus operandi, then fine - because the result to me is a joyous, classic album, still on repeated listen, still making yo

LMT is more maudlin, musically and lyrically, while TMS has that lovely chord shape and the lyrics are a lot better, I think, loaded with more interesting meanings, and it's midtempo.

I get the impression that the entire culture is in terminal decline. I am so glad I have lived through the mighty renaissance of popular music that was the second half of the 20th century - and a bit of the next - that magic meeting of technology, audience, expectation, and attitude. That door started to close, really, with the death of Amy Winehouse,and certainly when the Stones take their final

Quotenoughties Things come up after a while. Reading all those positive reviews now is quite annoying, reminding me of lazy journalism. The Quietus` "Get Off My Loud" article is the only one that`s raises issues that resonates with me. Myself, I`ve never been that fond of "Some Girls".

Wonderful and subtle riff, one that could go on forever, and maybe it does. I do remember someone scoffing at the mere thought of it being a riff, for some reason. Maybe that's what you get for giving the people something new and that is not easily recognisable when set against the past.

It's so good. And so well constructed, detailed, layered. It accumulates. And it still explodes at the end, after innumerable listens. People often decry the new when there is a long trail of the old - in five years time this will be hailed a Stones classic among the best of them, as will the album, which is magnificent, after all this time, and as soon as I have played this song, I find I

Basically it's a Jagger/ Andrew Watts album with Keith and
