I think it's slightly overrated, like Revolver because although it's probably, like Revolver, one of their best albums, it also contains silliness and nonsense. For me, Abbey Road is especially worthwhile for Come Together, Oh Darling, I Want You and the two George Harrison songs. But, indeed, Octupus Garden and Maxwell's Silver Hammer are just stupid and annoying. Just as Yellow S

QuoteDandelionPowderman Quotenoughties There are some notes during JJF that weren`t there in the first place. This has been going on for some years now. It`s both Mick`s singing and some unneccessary guitar playing. It makes the song more of a lullaby than a wake up call. The notes were there in the first place, although they were skipped for 30 years in concert, but they've been back sinc

QuoteBungo I was watching the Sweet Summer Sun / Hyde Park show the other day and it struck me how retarded a song like Sympathy For The Devil has become over the years compared to the amazing versions heard on Get Yer Ya Yas Out. Why don't they just play it like that? 2 guitars, drums and bass. And the guitar lines they play in these current versions are just childish and un-musical compare

QuoteDandelionPowderman 29 years have passed, and I think that SW deserves more praise than we've given it. IMO, it's the album with the best songs and the best playing since Undercover. The production was top notch in 1989, but dated quickly. I don't know what happened, but I'm starting to find peace with that sound (maybe the 80s are back?) and the overall feel of the alb

QuoteSilver Dagger Here's my video of Midnight Rambler. This song has become an organic beast - growing nightly. Tuesday night was brilliant but they pushed it even further on Friday with Mick ad-libbing Come On In My Kitchen. It's a thing of beauty. Watch it and marvel. Fantastic version. Cheers for posting!

Quotesnorton Here is a much closer SFM It's a good version, so much is true. But I will never really understand the enthusiasm for this song. The studio album is sort of ok because of the production and I can see how it might be enjoyable, but it's nothing special, too simple, the voice copying the guitar riff and the guitar riff too basic, almost like a "Open Tuning Lesson

QuoteHairball QuoteDandelionPowderman QuoteHairball Fool to Cry is the weak link of the show imo, and in the video posted seemed like a buzz kill for a majority of the crowd. Almost would prefer the more up-tempo Emotional Rescue w/falsetto (God forbid), but nah....at least Fool has a cool '70's groove going for it. It was a highlight, and people went crazy when Mick stopped singing

After 1978? That would be about 30% of Emotional Rescue, 95% Tattoo You, 60% Undercover, 1 song on DW and on average 10% - 20% on the albums afterwards. Very hard to take a pick. So, imagine you have to live your rest of your life on an island in the pacific and you can only take 1 song from the Stones with you and it has to be post 1978... An impossible choice but oh well: Slave

Well, I know judging YouTube videos cannot compare to the real thing, but what I've heard from them sofar, Dublin and London, on YouTube, they seem to be in very good shape and much better than in previous years. And Keith does not wreck the SFTD soloos anymore either.

I know I am walking on thin ice here, but Street Fighting Man I find bearable on the studio album and unbearable in any live version (yes, even Get Yer Ya Ya's). It's just too much I-IV bashing and the voice just doing the same notes as the guitar. It's almost grunge and certainly not groovy. But I know nobody will agree with me on this.

And, may I add, Neighbours sounds like a lot of fun, in part thanks to how fast they play it and in part because Ronnie seems to have a really good time.
