Customer Reviews

Steel Wheels is the last great album that the Rolling Stones have released.
John Alapick
'Almost Hear You Sigh' is a nice ballad by Mick with excelent vocals and great vocals, especially the baking vocals by Ronnie.
Morton
TERRIFYING kind of slows the album down, its just an average song that is still better than todays music.
Martin Lemos

This is the third release of "Steel Wheels" which was recorded as a digital album in the first place. This version is louder as most newer CD's are these days, but there really isn't any reason for someone who has enjoyed a previous release of this album to go rushing out to buy this release. That being said, "Steel Wheels" is a good album, not a great album but is a huge improvement over "Dirty Work" and surely better than the all-too conspicuous attempt to sound current, "Uundercover." It's also the last album that Bill Wyman served as a member of the band. The album opens with "Sad Sad Sad" a pretty standard Stones rocker. "Mixed Emotion" is the first single from the album often called "Mick's Demotion" given Keith Richiards plays a more central position in the band. Other noteworthy numbers include, "Terrifying" a song with latin jazz overtones. "Rock and a Hard Place" is another single with some fine Ronnie Wood guitar work. "Almost Hear You Sigh" is an incredible soulful ballad. Keith Richards' strongest number on the album is a fine Al Green tempo number, "Almost Hear You Sigh." About half the album is filler, but the good is very good not an essential Stones album but definitely worth it for Stones' fans and even a mediocre Stones album is better than most bands at their best because even the Stones' worst albums have at least a couple great tunes. "Steel Wheels" have more than a couple great ones.

After Mick Jagger's first solo album (she's the boss), after Dirty Work, the Stones got together and did a pretty good album.
Mixed Emotions and Rock and a Hard Place were the most immediate hits of that record. But they're not necessarily the best songs. Continental Drift is an expected piece from the Stones and one which testifies how broad they can be when they want to.
The best song in the album - recorded live in Stripped few years later and now a staple in most live performances by the Stones - is Slipping Away. It's a great great song. It's very basic and yet very intriguing. It's - possibly - a turning point in Keith Richards' songwriting. It opened a new line of songs -- Losing My Touch (in Forty Licks); The worst as well as thru and thru (voodoo lounge); thief in the night (bridges to babylon)--
that has expended the Stones'musical vocabulary.
It's a nice comeback.

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:
Interesting notes include:
.....the title song Steel Wheels evolved into Rock And A Hard Place
.....the Rolling Stones were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in the middle of the recording sessions for this album
.....the album sessions represented a renewal of the band by Mick and Keith...they wrote some of the songs on their hotel balcony by the ocean
.....Continental Drift includes recordings by the Master Musicians of Joujouka (Morocco) who had first been recorded by Brian Jones in 1967.
The Steel Wheels sessions occurred in 1989 in Barbados and on Montserrat in the West Indies. Final mixing was done at Olympic Sound in London between May 15 and June 29, 1989.
Jan 20 - Feb 13, 1989 at Blue Wave Studios in Barbados and Mar 29 - May 5, 1989 at Air Studios on Montserrat

Dirty Work redefined The Stones as the greatest arse kickin' rock band on the planet. Apparently too hard edged for some of our more tame listeners , like the previous reviewers , who prefer their tunes a bit more commercially accessible - Steel Wheels is a fantastic more pop oriented rock album which showcases the bands diversity .

This LP came in 1989, which is generally not considered the prime or peak period of the Stones. This is, however, one of their better efforts and certainly their best studio work from 1981 to present.

There are 2 GREAT Keith sung songs here- one a slow number "Slipping away" and the other a rocker "Can't be Seen". Jagger sings the rest and there's not a bad song in the batch. They even throw ina little Brian Jones tribute on "Continental Drift". Classic rock radio hasn't taken to this group of songs like some other Stones LPs but this is Rolling Stones at the top of their game.

Recently, I was browsing in a record store; they were playing what I instantly recognized as a Stones recording--without understanding, at first, which one. I just knew it sounded great. Before I left, I figured out the song I loved so much was "Almost Hear You Sigh"--from "Steel Wheels."
Ten plus years after its release on vinyl, I bought the CD. It brought me back to where I was in '89-90 and the memory of how much I liked it. Over time, indeed, this wears well. It's as good as I remembered.
"Steel Wheels" is classic Stones and, without a doubt, my favorite recording since "Tatoo You." It has the trademark Stones rock n' roll hooks and riffs (Sad, Sad, Sad, Mixed Emotions), solid Charlie beat, a guitar lick that drips atmosphere (Hearts for Sale), one of the most beautiful of all Stones songs (Almost hear you Sigh) and one of Keith's best numbers, (Can't be Seen). All Stones albums have some toss-away songs but this comes as close to any as to not having any. Why this isn't univerally recognized as one of their all-time best, I do not understand. It rocks!
