but sometimes appreciation is all in the location. I've just purchased this album, after not hearing it since the Summer of '93. I'd gone to stay with my sister in her house north of Barcelona (Spain) where she was in the middle of a painful divorce. I had the whole summer ahead on the Costa Brava to console her and explore my own desires. In her SUV a Toyota Terrano, were three old tapes: Sade - Diamond Life, Culture Club (not sure which) and Mick Jagger's Primitive Cool. I ended up driving all over Barcelona and Catalunya that summer listening over and over again to 'Primitive Cool'. It became a signature for the cities, towns, highways, beaches, mountains and sunsets of that part of Spain. I don't know whether or not it's a good Mick Jagger album. All I know is I love it. I'm currently living temporarily in Tucson Arizona and something about the desert has brought out a longing to hear it again, so I just purchased the downloads. Can't wait to get it in the car.

C'mon people!!! As a musician, I do not expect any deviation of
Stones fans ( I love the Stones myself!). But this is another
case in point of a front man (Jagger--and a damn good one) want-
ing to go out and do something beyond the limitations of what he
could accomplish with the Stones. I love Charlie Watts to death
but he is no Simon Phillips. Primitive Cool has a hard rocking
edge to it (Throwaway in particular) that could never be emula-
ted in the Stones. They are the blues rockers (and damn good ones at that). Mick wanted to explore beyond what the Stones
could give him and you have to give him that whether you like this album or not. Mick has always been about high energy and he had a chance to generate this energy beyond the Stones. Mick will always be Stones. But try to escape the Stones if you can
and listen to Mick outside of the Stones and the great playing behind him on this album. Yes, it is different, but I really be-
lieve that is what Mick was going for. He needed something be-
yond where he had been for so long. And let us not forget, he came back where he belonged. Long live the Stones and Mick for
the courage to escape and come back.

Mick's second solo record is very good. Some songs are better than others but it's overall a little better than She's the Boss. Say you will should've been a hit. Check out Mary Chapin Carpenter's version of Party Doll.

Nice record with a few duds. Mick seems to have gone thru a redundant dance song phase which kills the momentum a couple of times, but much to like. Party Doll is one of the more beautiful songs I have heard. Better than She's the Boss by far. Add a few more great songs and it would be up there with Wandering Spirit.

This is one top quality album! Throwaway is great, Let's Work is better, a real singalong rocker, and Say You Will is even better -- a rousing piece done with real emotion and soul. War Baby, Party Doll and the title track are also good. All in all a solid album with memorable melodic rock songs.

When this album came out, the Stones hadn't recorded in years and lots of critics were expecting this to be Jagger's "do or die" release. Though a big swaggery (this is Jagger, guys!), the CD wins due to songs like "Party Doll" and "War Baby." Well worth checking out...just ignore the weird cover illustration of Mick with Yoda ears.

Following the Stones' Dirty Work, bickering amongst the Stones prevented them from having the anticipated quinquennial tour. Both Mick Jagger and Keith Richards decided on solo albums, creating speculations whether the end of the Stones was nigh. Such wasn't the case however.

But Mick Jagger's second solo album, Primitive Cool, went more on a harder-edged guitar rock sound than the pop polishings of She's The Boss. All songs were produced by Mick himself, with assistance from Keith Diamond and Dave Stewart, and he brought back Jeff Beck on lead guitar.

That's not to say that some of the pop polish was gone. The first single, "Let's Work," his simplistic solution on killing poverty, went to #39. The song seems to be a mean-spirited hit against welfare recipients, but maybe against those who take advantage of the system-"can generosity bring you humility?"

The second single, the #67 "Throwaway," owes a bit to the Stones, but is more typical of Mick's new hard-driving sound, but the theme of a "been there done that" greasy Casanova who finally wants some true love has been done before. "Radio Control" is even better, featuring some hard guitar riffs. Living Colour's Vernon Reid has guitar chores, so I wonder if it's him here.

The title track is an amusing commentary on how the young ask those who lived in the 50's and 60's if they lived the history of those times, be it fashion or political upheavals, as they learned it in school or saw on TV. I shudder to think of the time when it comes my turn, when some whippersnappers ask me of the 80's, "It all seems so primitive, how did you survive? It all seemed so different then. How did you stay alive?
