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.

I've tried so hard to get into this album (10+ listens) but it just doesn't quite make it for me. In parts it's great but i just find it a bit long winded and samey. I actually don't mind listening to long albums as long as they don't feel like it...sadly this actually feels longer than it actually is.
