Heard it. Pfffff.... what is that?? Jagger's voice is horriby nasal and forced, although he has a few nice licks by the end (and it is NOT a problem of ability, but why does he feel he must sing in that horrid pointless way?). There is no break, no solo, no nothing, repetitive structures. A guitar noodles in the background to no particular end... All in all, the (modern) backing vocals are w

I agree with Doxa: the power of Jagger's voice is actually very impressive on the snippet, but it's bad taste that's letting him down a bit. Or not exactly bad taste; but he does not manage to simply let go and sing, it sounds too controlled ("now the nasal snarly tone, now the growl"). It is very clear to me from recent studio recordings that Jagger's voice has l

On Amazon.de you can also hear a snippet of All Down the Line - voice seems more upfront than on the original, or is it just me? I know purists will be annoyed by this, but I like it!

I don't think the idea of the blues album would work. 11 x Little Baby would be quite boring - I don't think it would add enough to the originals to be worth it.

I've said it before: if there are gonna be covers, I'd love them to do Take Me In Your Arms (Rock me a little while) from the Isley Brothers (motown period) and Keith to sing One for my baby (and one more for the road).

I agree with Think I'm Going Mad. Perhaps Jagger's most heartfelt delivery (and they are not so frequent to begin with), and his phrasing in interaction with the guitars is amazing. Ronnie & Keith interplay at its best; great mid-tempo groove. Casino Boogie also: fantastic harmonies (as said above) and an amazing sax solo basically focused on one note for a few bars, with perfec

I'll go if I'm given a ticket or if I get very rich (unlikely). It will surely be fun (and I'll have reasonable expectations); but there are so many other concerts to spend money on that are more fun today.

I like it but somehow it rocks without rolling... perhaps, as said above, it's to do with the mix? The drums sound too loud and not swingy enough. A pity; I love Jagger on it and I like the guitars.

I don't think it matters really to discuss the interviewer, but I stick to my point. The journalist could have gathered more material if he had not interrupted as much as he did; furthermore, he clearly has a preconceived idea of what he wants to hear. Wanna bet that on paper, the article is gonna sound dull, with all the original stuff left out and just some standard chit chat about sixties

Yes the interviewer is SO annoying - he interrupts and prevents all sorts of interesting things being said. Sounds like a stupid postmodern guy who wants to have Mick speaking about "ongoing processes" and whatever "getting out of your bourgeois, your body, extend your perception". Perhaps he is shy and therefore overdoing it. But he seems to believe he knows what the Stones w

That's the essence of the tragedy of Ron Wood: musically he was never a necessary element, he couldn't be himself. He had 'his own album to do' to survive. He had a role to play. He couldn't be authentic. That makes the whole Keith-imitation of Ronnie so sad and ridiculous at the same time. Maybe it's even a factor that plays a role in his heavy drinking for years. O

I think we understand each other well and value different things: you say that Taylor's partners would have to listen to him rather than the contrary - well exactly! That's a flaw in my book, although i can understand it's a strength in yours. To each his own!

But... only in such a narrow sense of 'skills' that it does not matter. For instance, if you think of jazz musicians, many many trumpet players are more skilled than Miles Davis (they can play faster, go higher and lower and have a more even tone, etc) but they are not as musically interesting as him. Taylor is more skilled than Wood, in the same sense that Sam Cooke is more skilled tha

Another point: I cannot agree that Taylor is a soloist in the jazz tradition. To me, what defines a jazzman is primarily his ability to play with the bars (I don't really know how to say this in English); not to have every solo phrase start on the 1st time and finish on the 6th or 8th. That kind of rhythmic stiffness is why eventually I get bored with rock music and especially rock soloists

Well put, Mathijs!! I for one think that although obviously Taylor has excellent moments, he is hugely overrated. "Transcendent every night"? A lot oh the time he runs through scales, up, down, up, down, and even his fluidity becomes boring. In a way he is the epitome of the white blues player; too neat, not enough edges and groove. In my view the Jack Bruce group would have suited h

Suddenly crossed my mind; the way the stripped-down, groovy Keith solo is followed by the flourished, virtuosic solo of Taylor on Ya Ya's Sympathy reminds me of how Miles' minimalistic solos are followed by Coltrane's outbursts on Kind Of Blue. Just a Saturday morning thought...

Doxa - I like the way you describe Dylan - always did; this is why you even got me to give another spin to his latest albums. As a matter of fact, I like that kind of talk much more than the kind of talk you give about me denying the subjective side of things etc. And then, after I did listen to him, well it did remain impossible for me to square your description with the actual thing (his
