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!

The last album of the Mick Taylor years this one shows signs of where the band was headed on future releases. I don't consider myself qualified enough of a Stones fan to really give a in depth review of the album... For that look at some of the other great reviews on here. But for a fan of the 70's/Taylor era of the band I will say it's a definite necessity and fits nicely up against the album's bookending it.*****

4 and 1/2 Stars

A fair amount of people in rock and roll do not favor this album, and that is all well, because musical taste is subjective of course, as with any other art form; but I really would like to stress to new Rolling Stones fans that the previous albums, e.g. Sticky Fingers, Let It Bleed and Exile are all REALLY good albums. What we have with It's Only Rock and Roll is similar to what For Those About To Rock was to AC/DC fans. It's a great album - just not as good as what came before it.

There are some real gems here like "If You Can't Rock Me", "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" actually, the first side is really really good.
Uncut magazine (UK) slammed "Luxury" with one star, but I think it's a great track! It has the same sorta vibe that "Beast of Burden" had, just pure Stones spirit. I think the remaining tracks are really good too, almost like Stones relics for die hard fans e.g "Fingerprint File"

The production is pretty good too. Looking at this record in context is useful. At this point in the Stones history Keith was down and out on drugs. You can see how out of it Keith was in the video for "It's Only Rock and Roll". Mick Taylor I've read was also taking heroin too. Bill was making/had made a solo record and Charlie was chillaxed as always. Micky J was married and was like a celebrity, so he wasn't about all the time. So considering the circumstances this is really good.

Definitely pick this up. Great cover too. Would get a poster of it I could find one.

Mick Taylor's departure from seven very successful years with the Stones was a fine point for all concerns. From "If You Can't Rock Me" through the title rack onto "Dance Little Sister" the band were still very much riding the crest of their classic,bottom heavy rock n roll sound. Nothing had really changed too much across high key Motown rave ups of "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" or countryish ballads such as "Till The Next Goodbye" or the yearning "If You Really Want To Be My Friend". But a change was coming. Perhaps all too aware of various changes that were occuring in the pop world the Stones were also looking past the blues and soul as their main influences and beginning to integrate elements of reggae and other things into their style. That Jamaican influence,which was than actually pretty new came to the surface most strong on "Luxary" as well as now and again in the rhythms of "Time Waits For No One and "Short And Curlies". In terms of the conclusion "Fingerprint File" ends the album with the bands first all out,bona fide funk number complete with chugging wah wah's and Mick's learing vocals at fine effect. This particular variation on the bands style would bubble more to the surface on the follow up album Black and Blue when Ron Wood joined the band. The fact that the band could integrate so many new musical experiments into their already locked down tight sound has the effect of adding to their status as being able to do what they do very well when they choose to do it.

Mick Taylor's swan song and only partially included, at that. He was such a brilliant lead guitar player, blues player, just gorgeous work for many years. "If You Can't Rock Me" busts the album out of the gate with fervor. "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" is a respectfully-done cover of the Temps' classic, preceding 'Just My Imagination" from "Some Girls". The title cut rocks, of course as does "Dance Little Sister". I really enjoy 'Luxury", another foray into reggae for the boys. Another solid mid-seventies effort and recommended.

YES ! Yet anouther great Alb. from the Stones*. Just one of the early? Alb. out at this time. The title song was a good video,'cept that when the prop put out so much bobbles Charlie Watts,( Drumer ) was sitting so low he wound being covered in the bobbles ! Oh yea. Those who played on the Ablm. ie: Billy Preston, Ray Cooper, Nicky Hopkins, and others make for a FAB time. Long Time FAN ! From 1964, to now and Ever .OH ,YEA.
