This review is from: Some Girls (Audio CD)
This is probably their biggest selling album. 10 songs, a Temptations cover and 9 originals: 2 non-descript punk-based tunes, the disco-esque "Miss You", classic rock standards "Beast Of Burden" and "Shattered", the beautifully offensive country tune "Far Away Eyes", Keith singing lead on the hard rocking "Before They Make Me Run", and generally a sloppy feel as Ron Wood and Mick Jagger play more of the guitar than normal. Few if any studio musicians make an appearance. "Some Girls" is a sort of laid back tune, more offensive lyrics here, and basically you have the Stones being themselves, and that is one cool sound. When they follow a trend, they always do it well, whether it's psychedelia ("2000 Light Years from Home") or grunge ("Love is Strong"), and that remains true on this one. Here they absorb Punk, Disco, and 70's Rock influences, and do them better than just about anyone. Irresistable.
