Product Description

Originally Release '01 , his fourth solo album with an all-star guests : Joe Perry, Bono, Rb Thomas, Pete Townshend, Partly produced by Wyclef Jean & Lenny Kravitz.

Amazon.com

Bootleg-savvy Stones fans understand why Mick Jagger's solo albums tend to be curiously pop-precious and testosterone-challenged; if Keith Richards had his druthers, we'd likely have Exile on Main Street Vol. XI by now. Indeed, given Jagger's decades-old rep as the most virile dinosaur of the herd, it can be jarring to have the Vulnerable Mick ponder "Wonder if you catch my mood / Can you feel my solitude?" as the strings well on this album's "Don't Call Me Up." But then, being a caricature so large (and ludicrous) can drive an artist to do desperate things, like sewing his heart firmly to his sleeve in a quest for Truth. Infused with a welcome sense of renewed musical adventure on tracks like the jangly, alterna-nervous Lenny Kravitz collaboration, "God Gave Me Everything," the East-West fusion of the title track, and the modern techno-murk of "Gun" (both cowritten with coproducer Matt Clifford), the icon seems finally to have found a solo persona that fits: Spiritually Awakened World-Weary Rebel. There's even a devoutly uplifting, Pete Townshend-backed duet with Bono ("Joy") that among other things, makes the U2 singer's reservations at Jurassic Park all but official. Still, it's hard to teach an old cur new licks; the best here is undercut by genuflections to chart-conscious predictability (the Rob Thomas collaboration "Visions of Paradise") and hoary-ironic arena-ready sentiments like "Everybody Getting High" (with guest guitar deity/substance abuse expert Joe Perry) that Keith Richards must understand all to well. --Jerry McCulley

I've had a few listens. Not sure if I agree with Jann Wenner's claim. But my initial impression is that it's good. Really good. A bunch of songs I like, one or two that are mediocre. It's a good ride all the way through. Well produced with a polish, unlike Wandering Spirit, which was also well produced, but with a rawer sound. This is not a Stones record and I don't think it's trying to be. It's definitely a sound that comes from a man who has lived a privileged life of wealth and taste (sorry for the cliché). Very confident, relaxed, yet upbeat and mature. It's mature, in much the same way as Leonard Cohen's "The Future", but a totally different record in terms of what it's trying to do. I can understand the early criticism that it's too "radio friendly" but I don't think that's fair. Jagger's voice is good, if not better, than ever. It's masterful, and fun. Musically, it's a mix of good stuff. It's got a good rhythm too (no surprise here). Keith Richards probably likes the record, but wouldn't want it as a Stones album. The record has a few jams on it. It's all very rich and is pulling me in pretty quickly. My hunch is that it will have much commercial appeal, although it probably won't draw in most of the blue collar Stones crowd for lack of raunch. If you're a Jagger or Stones fan, it's a must have. I've been one forever and never knew a world without Mick and The Rolling Stones. But in my attempt to be an objective music enthusiast, this is a great record in many ways. You can do a lot with it, as one would naturally expect from Mick. [...]

I have to admit I would not even consider buying A Mick Jagger solo cd usually. Keith Richards anytime, but Mick's past solo efforts gave no reason to look forward to his next outing. All that has changed now!
Once I saw the 5 stars Rolling Stone gave the cd, I decided to buy it immediately upon release. Best move I have made in quite some time! This is a fantastic cd, I canhonestly say I like every song on it, something I cannot even say about any Stones cd of the past 20 or so years.This disc will definitely get more time in my player than any of those albums.
The Stones have been accused of just putting out product for the dough for quite some time now, but Mick obviously cares about the music this time around."Hide Away" produced by Wyclef Jean is a great song. Other highlights for me are "Joy" ( featuring Bono), Too Far Gone and Brand New Set Of Rules. The last two are in that classic Stones "ballad" style.
The disc really covers all the bases from dance to rock to ballad, and even a country flavor on a song like Brand New Set Of Rules. But more important, all the songs are damned good!
One last note: there is a hidden track at 6:35 into track 12, not really a song, but a few moments of a piano and Mick over some noise, almost like in a lounge.

People often make the mistake of grouping all 3 of Mick's previous solo albums into one group, when in fact the mediocre "She's The Boss" and "Primitive Cool" were far surpassed by 1993's "Wandering Spirit", which offered several great songs. "Goddess In The Doorway" offers very few songs that can compete with the likes of "Don't Tear Me Up" or "Out Of Focus", in my opinion, but the album is solid throughout (perhaps moreso than "Spirit"). "Hide Away", "Visions Of Paradise", "God Gave Me Everything", and "Too Far Gone" are among the best, but there are no clear standouts on an album that has many good songs. As would be expected, Mick goes in several different directions, with the only constants being that distinctive voice and the mark of quality that has followed it for much of the past 40 years.

"Hideaway" has been at the top of my personal top ten for much of the summer. This collection of Jagger's is spellbinding IMHO. What made the Beatles so incredible was their balance. George Harrison added the spiritual component to the band, but the Stones missed this. Goddess In the Doorway approaches this in a number of tracks and gives the CD depth and relevance.
The opener, "Visions of Paradise," is addictive with its pretty piano, "Tell me the names of the stars in the sky; what's your favorite song?" On "Joy" Jagger rocks out, finding a state of grace, "I drove across the desert; I was in my 4-wheel drive; I was looking for the Buddha & I saw Jesus Christ." "Dancing in the Starlight" sounds like Mick was going for the pop hit & does a good job of it, particularly the drums are hot on the track. "God Gave Me Everything" is a rocker, "I feel it in the symphony & I feel it in the love you show for me." My favorite, the CLASSIC track "Hideaway," a song of great longing for anyone who has ever felt like making a complete change, "I'm gonna pack up all my bags, vanish while I can, leave this town behind, pay it all no mind, I'm gonna hide away." Mick gets sentimental with a wall of sound on the midtempo "Don't Call Me Up." The title track has a middle-eastern flavor with pounding drums, "Looking for a vision by a neon sign." Mick strikes a sexy groove on "Lucky Day" and turns in the average rock track with "Everybody Getting High." "Gun" is an interesting rocker as he wishes someone would just shoot him rather than put him through grief. The guitars chime on "Too Far Gone." "Brand New Set of Rules" is a pretty ballad, "Because of you, a brand new start; because of you, a change of heart.
