Here it is, the greatest rock'n'roll album ever. It's a blurry masterpiece. The first two tracks, rocks off and rip this joint, come at you so fast it feels like you're taking off in an aeroplane. Tumbling dice is my favourite stones song of all time. Other standouts are the stunning loving cup, the beautiful gospel ballad shine a light, Keith's giddy happy and the mellow country of sweet Virginia. There isn't a weak track here, although to get the best out of the tracks you have to listen to the whole album in one sitting. Where as later albums such as voodoo lounge and bridges to Babylon go on for about the same length, exile just flies by while those albums feel like they go on for three months. This is an essential album in any music fans collection.

Most of the tracks on here are just "good" and nothing more except for a few I've listed below.

Favorite tracks: Rocks Off, Rip This Joint, Shake Your Hips, Ventilator Blues, I Just Want To See His Face

B+

A little too messy for me, but Rocks Off is a near-perfect song and even the bad songs have some pretty sexy blues parts.

If they cut like 3-4 songs, it'd be near perfect.

Love the bluesy tracks on this - recently purchased on vinyl and will be listened to more so could well move up my chart - only one weakish track in 18 can't be too shabby!

This has a better second half, there are some not so great songs on the first half. Overall, pretty amazing

Probably their strongest artistic statement, though I'm on the fence as far as the band is concerned. They're okay and listenable, but I've never connected with their music emotionally.

For a bunch of white British guys they really nailed the dirty, gritty sound of American southern blues and rock and roll. This is a masterpiece.

Not the most consistent album, could probably be shaved down to a single LP and it'd be much higher up my list, but there's too much quality to deny it a place.
