Biography

A History in the Whirlwind: The Rolling Stones’ 50th Anniversary

By Anthony DeCurtis

When the nascent Rolling Stones began playing gigs around London in 1962, the notion that a rock & roll band would last five years, let alone fifty, was an absurdity. After all, what could possibly be more ephemeral than rock & roll, the latest teenage fad? Besides, other factors made ... Read more in Amazon's The Rolling Stones Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Clearly their answer to Sgt. Pepper, or at least "All You Need is Love," Satanic Majesties is actually as sloppy an artifact as Flowers. But even at their most (willfully?) goofy '60s moment, the Stones came up with some good songs. "She's a Rainbow" is fine second-tier pop-psychedelia, while "2000 Light Years from Home" can still transmit a pretty handsome case of the Fear. Bill Wyman's "In Another Land" is as thin as his phased vocal, but still plays better than "Sing This All Together (See What Happens)." Not the most essential Stones disc by a long shot, but one that fans will want to own sooner or later. --Rickey Wright

Product Description

Part druggy experiment, part musical rivalry with the Fab Four, and a total anomaly in the Rolling Stones' catalogue, THEIR SATANIC MAJESTIES REQUEST contains at least three trippy classics in "Citadel," "She's a Rainbow," and "2000 Light Years From Home." That it also contains an extensive sample of Bill Wyman snoring and an eight-minute stoned jam that begins with the timeless phrase "Where's that joint?" is a measure of SATANIC MAJESTIES' breadth of genius and folly.

There's a lot going on here--try comparing the wayward Eastern atmospheres of "Gomper" to anything on BEGGAR'S BANQUET, and marvel that you're listening to the same band. The fact that Jagger and Richards could still come up with the unimpeachably charming "She's a Rainbow"--baroque pop at its finest--and a fair stab at heavy R&B in "The Lantern," while attempting to negotiate the band's rocky passage through Flower Power is a tribute to their vision, their perseverance, and their drugs of choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars You will hear sounds you never heard before August 31, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I already have a review for the original CD release of this album for Amazon, but the remaster of this highly underrated
album was so important that I feel it warrants another review.
In short--get it *now*. "Satanic Majesties" is an album of such dense layers of sound effects that it really deserves the best possible sound quality, which is what it finally receives here.
No matter what you think of the album, it sounds almost brand new, with a clarity, crispness and rich aural sheen completely missing from the original CD. This is much closer to the original vinyl, and I would even say superior, since there are sounds I had *never* heard before..."Sing This All Together",
"In Another Land" and "Gomper" sound particularly strong, with the stereo separation making it sound as if the entire band is playing in your living room.
I have always had a soft spot in my heart for "Satanic"--sure, it sounds nothing like The Stones, but that's part of what gives it its charm. It certainly sounds almost nothing like "Sgt.Pepper", either, although it is clearly influenced by it. Songs like "Citadel", "2000 Light Years" and "Gomper" are much darker, heavier and more experimental than anything on "Pepper", and the catchy riffs and hooks *are* still there. There's only one thing missing in the new CD remaster and that is the 3-D effect on the cover art, although the rest of the packaging is up to par.

4.0 out of 5 stars Psychedelic Response September 15, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The much maligned Their Satanic Majesties Request is The Rolling Stones obvious response to The Beatles Sgt. Pepper's album. The band dived headfirst into the psychedelic sounds of 1967's Summer of Love and the album sounds like no other in their catalog. Despite the criticism and attempt to keep pace with the Beatles (including the original 3-D cover), the album contains some excellent songs. The album opens up strong with the overture "Sing This All Together" with it's horns and sound effects and then slides right into the grinding guitar of "The Citadel". Bill Wyman's only lead vocal on a Stone's album is "In Another Land" and upon listening to it you can hear why it was his first and last. He has a tremendously thin voice and he makes Ringo Starr sound like Pavarotti. "2000 Man" is fast-paced and along with "2000 Light Years From Home" are the best songs on the album. The reprise of "Sing This All Together" is a major misstep and is a really bad song, but they pick up again with the flowery "She's A Rainbow". This album has taken an undue amount of heat, but as the years have passed, it should be looked at for what it is, a solid foray into the psychedelic arena by one of the best bands of all-time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Candy and Cathy...hope you both are well! September 21, 2002
Format:Audio CD
As any serious music historian knows, this album was the Stones' "Sgt. Pepper." It sounds like no other release in their impressive catalog. And it IS a departure. But, that's the point! Why have so few people NOT gotten it. Are they simply NOT LISTENING? "Satanic Magesties" is an awesome piece of work. And psychedelia never sounded so good as it does on the brilliant "2000 Light Years From Home." And it sounds great on "Sing This All Together," "Citadel," and "In Another Land" (Bill Wyman's 'underwater' vocals are both freaky and effective for the style of the song...NOT thin or weak like a reviewer stated!). And "2000 Man" and "She's A Rainbow" are two of the bands best efforts to date. Overall, a very much underappreciated and underated Stones album. Just give it a chance and listen to it with an open mind (and ears) and I think you'll discovery a true masterpiece. It's different all right...But, in keeping with the "Spirit Of '67" and the band itself...it's a GAS! GAS! GAS!

5.0 out of 5 stars On with the show, good health to you... September 7, 2002
Format:Audio CD
"When The Beatles take you on a trip, maybe you should pack a sandwich because you might get hungry on the way. When The Stones take you on a trip, you had better sublease your apartment and pack a trunk. You may be gone for a long time."
- The Beatles Book, "On With The Show", by Edward E. Davis, page 175, Copyright 1968 by Cowles Education Corporation)

No, no lonely hearts club band here. In some cases, barely recognizable pop songs. If 'Pepper' was carefully put together, '...Satanic Majesties...' is what happens when you put five celebrity musicians in a studio amidst drug busts and their aftermath trying their darndest to not do a 'Pepper'.

The great songs might have made a great EP - "Citadel", "In Another Land", "2000 Man", "She's A Rainbow" and "2000 Light Years From Home". And if it can fit, "The Lantern" could be included. But what do you do with the "Sing This All Together" opus, "Gomper" and "On with The Show".

But, for some reason, this is one of my favorite Stones albums. Maybe I like the experimentation of the psychedelic era more than others. And if you agree, this is one example of that era you will thoroughly enjoy.

"Sing This All Together" sounds sinister and so unlike singing all together (I have read that this was done on purpose). "Citadel" with its great backing and unearthly medieval lyric. "In Another Land", showcasing Bill Wyman's compositional talents, suggests he should have been given more space to let that talent show. "2000 Man" in which a 1967 composition predicts a future that isn't too far off the mark. In "Sing This All Together (See What Happens)" someone says "Where's that joint?" and I get the feeling it was found and inhaled for about 8 solid minutes.
