5.0 out of 5 stars I's Only Newly Remastered (But I Love It) May 5, 2009
Format:Audio CD
1974's "It's Only Rock N' Roll" was guitarist Mick Taylor's swan song with the Rolling Stones,and contains a more direct,energetic set of songs than its predecessor "Goats Head Soup",such as the title track,"If You Can't Rock Me","Dance Little Sister",and the cover of the Temptations "Ain't Too Proud To Beg"."Time Waits For No One" is worth the price for this trip.So is the remastering on this edition-this underrated gem no longer sounds muddy and with potato sacks covering the speakers,it now sounds crisp,in-your-face,crystal-clear,the way rock n' roll supposed to sound.Sure the packaging is the same as the Virgin,but Rolling Stones fans shouldn't hesitate to pick this reasonably priced reissue and throw the previous ones to the dogs!

4.0 out of 5 stars More Than Just Rock N Roll And I Do Like It October 26, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Some commentaries may feel that Its Only Rock N Roll is just a standard by the numbers release by the Rolling Stones. However, in addition to the usual brand of in your face rock n roll, there are some nice experimental pieces like the funky Fingerprint File, the tender acoustic gem Till The Next Goodbye, and the stunning Time Waits For No One.
Yes, Time Waits For No One is a definite album highlight with the super guitar soloing by Mick Taylor against the back drop of stunning keyboard work by Nicky Hopkins. Its nice that Mick Jagger gave up some of the spotlight on this song to Mick Taylor as Mickie T certainly added a great deal to the Stones sound with his ellaborate solos. Its a shame that he was not allowed to contribute more.
Anyway, If You Can't Rock Me and Aint To Proud To Beg are a super one two punch combination to the open the album. Its Only Rock N Roll is a good tune if a bit overplayed. Like the reggae touches on Luxury. Dance Little Sister is a nice rocker if a little bit basic. If You Really Want To Be My Friend does drag a little bit in spite of some nice organ touches and background vocals. Short and Curlies is both amusing and crude with rollicking piano contributions by Ian Stewart.
Well there you have it. I commented on every song. A very good recording although not quite on the same level as Sticky Fingers, Exile, Beggars Banquet, etc.... But pick it up anyway as there are several tracks(Fingerprint File, If You Can't Rock Me, Time Waits For No One, Aint Too Proud To Beg) which need to be in the collection of any Rolling Stones fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Bona Fide Rock Classic February 28, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Released in 1974 while they were still at the top of their game, The Rolling Stones scored their 4th consecutive number one album with 'It's Only Rock 'N' Roll". It was also the last one to feature Mick Taylor, the most versatile member of the group.
"It's Only Rock 'N' Roll" kicks off into high gear with "If You Can't Rock Me", followed by a scorching cover of "Ain't Too Proud To Beg". Next comes the libidinous title track, a jaunty singalong that has become a classic. The album tones down a few notches with the lovely acoustic ballad "Til The Next Time We Say Goodbye". Following is Mick Taylor's magnum opus "Time Waits For No One", featuring a 3 - minute guitar solo that rivals the one on "Free Bird". "Luxury" is a faux - reggae track that is very enjoyable, while "Dance Little Sister" is all - out rock. "If You Really Want To Be My Friend" is a nice soul ballad, and "Short And Curlies" is a cute ditty. "Fingerprint File" closes the album, and is filled with excellent hooks and grooves.
Overall, an excellent album crying out for recognition.

Format:Audio CD
Sometimes considered "just another Stones album" It's Only Rock 'n' Roll was originally released Oct 18, 1974, it went to #1 in the US and #4 in the UK. Over the years Ronnie Wood's song It's Only Rock 'n' Roll has finally achieved the classic status it seemed destined for when it was written. More rewarding is that Keith's opus Time Waits For No One has also become recognized for the great work it is. And on top of all that, If You Can't Rock Me continues to get air and concert play at somewhat of a Stones standard. Not too shabby for just another Stones album. Most people know the music, so in my reviews I try to give you data on the sessions and interesting facts connected with the songs and the album. Here we go:
The sessions for It's Only Rock 'n' Roll ran over a long period of time, starting Nov 13-24, 1973 at Musicland Studios in Munich and running from Jan 14-28, 1974. It's Only Rock 'n' Roll (the song) was overdubbed and mixed and Fingerprint file and Luxury were cut at Mick's house (Stargroves) near Newbury from the Rolling Stones Mobile on April 10-15, 1974, and final mixing was done May 20-25 at Island Studios in London. Two songs were recorded that did not appear on the album, Through The Lonely Nights (which was released as the B side of the single It's Only Rock 'n' Roll) and Black Limousine (which was released on the album Tattoo You in 1981). The Stones also recorded two songs that have not been released, Drift Away and Living In The Heart Of Love. The album also included one song (Short And Curlies) from the Goat's Head Soup sessions in Nov and Dec of 1972 in Jamaica.
Interesting notes include:
.....It's Only Rock 'n' Roll has a famous story behind it.
