Rolling Stones sweetest time, It´s not my favorite but still very pleasant, decent, and,how most of the works that they have did, full of classics, Exile takes me a time to feel it decent, finally I put it higher, but at first I was a little decepcioned, maybe because when I listened I wasn´t to open to music, should be that

Best song: Tumbling Dice
Worst song: Casino Boogie

This is a classic case of the whole being greater than the sum of it's parts. I would not rate any of the songs on this album among my favourite Stones tunes, but this is easily my favourite Stones album. Every song is rock solid....for over 70 minutes! This isn't just an album...it's an experience!

Rolling Stones have great hits, but were no match for the Beatles in terms of making albums. The quality of Exile is maybe that for the first time, the Stones were not focusing on making hits and just enjoyed the song making. Lots of the songs exude the joy of playing together, and make this a great album. Not a top 27 in the overall chart, but better than the combined output of the Stones after the seventies.

Sits between the Stones that were busy following the Beatles, and the Stones that became a multinational corporation. This is them at their most natural, for once not even trying, playing music for the joy of it, and it shows.

Absolute masterpiece of rock and roll mixed with blues, gospel, country and soul. Even though none of the songs were big hits, they are all great - a fact that not many double albums can boast. Rocks Off and Tumbling Dice are the Stones at their best.
