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.

Best Rolling Stones album. The amount of energy, rock n' roll and blues that the Stones deliver in this album is adictive and uplifts me. Tumbling Dice is my favourite Stones song. Love this album!

ONLY Stones album that holds up! This is a masterpiece that melts blues, rock, swing, gospel, folk with raw energy and creates a unique sound and feel. one of the best albums ever for sure and the only album by them that stands the test of time.

A murky, sprawling ramble through all their American influences. blues, rock n' roll, gospel, country... this is a patchwork history of the music of the Stars and Stripes

From RobertChristgau 09/28/2015 00:04
More than anything else this fagged-out masterpiece is difficult--how else describe music that takes weeks to understand? Weary and complicated, barely afloat in its own drudgery, it rocks with extra power and concentration as a result. More indecipherable than ever, submerging Mick's voice under layers of studio murk, it piles all the old themes--sex as power, sex as love, sex as pleasure, distance, craziness, release--on top of an obsession with time more than appropriate in over-thirties committed to what was once considered a youth music.

This should always be the album of the day. An absolutely messy masterpiece.

When the Stones were good. Frankly, after Some Girls, I couldn't care less about any Stones songs. Tattoo You and Emotional Rescue were garbage. This album had some of my favorite Stones songs, like Rocks Off and Happy. Yes, there are some forgettable tunes (I Just Want to See his Face is God-awful), but what double album doesn't contain some filler? This is good stuff.

Incredibly consistent album. I love its sound, but maybe I expected a bit more. All the songs are very good, but only a few are great.
