"Exile on Main Street" is considered one of the Rolling Stones' most important albums, which may at first seem a little strange. Rolling Stones band members have on several occasions stated that they did not consider the album as something special. Moreover it contains relatively few of the group's best-known songs; not least considering that it was originally a double album.
The two singles "Tumbling Dice" and "Happy" naturally are well-known favourites and a handful of the other tracks were concert favorites in the 1970s. Among those are "Rocks Off," "Sweet Virginia", "Loving Cup" "All Down the Line" and "Rip This Joint."
Generally, to be real a fan of this album, I believe it is necessary to like horns. The horn section is an important part of the soundscape of the album. I clearly remember that this fact gave me some problem with being really enthuastic with the album.
The classic Keith Richards guitar riff fortunately can be found found on several tracks. This appliy for the opening track "Rocks Off," "All Down the Line" and of course the album's biggest hit "Tumbling Dice".
My personal favorite on the album is the delicate half acoustic "Sweet Black Angel" which has fine vocal harmonies. Also the melodic blues "Sweet Virginia", which in fact could have been a "Beggars Banquet" song and "Loving Cup" are favorites.
"Happy", with Keith Richards, is another significant song and also the quiet "Let It Loose" and the gospel influenced "Shine a Light" stand out positively from the whole.
Some of the very classic blues-inspired songs, I do not find particularly interesting, and although the album may well deserve to be judged as a whole, I believe that some of the less significant blues-influenced numbers could have been left out. In any rate, it is an album you can listen to many times. I have not heard the bonus-tracks, but I thought that the album was long enough as it originally was put together, so I never really considered getting the Deluxe version.
The sound on the remastered version has been criticized. I find it difficult to endorse this. On the contrary, I think the sound has become more open and airy.
The Stones at their imperious best.
This is my favourite album of all time it has a rawness about it like a jam session not refined "ok this is it put it out there" Rocks Off,Tumbling Dice,Soul Survivor,Happy,Ventilator Blues all great tracks really my most played album not a year goes by I don't play it
Not really any fillers but some tracks could be better e.g. Turd On The Run. Quite a lot of good tracks.
The best Rolling Stones album and the top of my chart! Listen to this all of the time.
Never quite got the adoration for this record. Some dumb songs, Turd on the Run, Ventilator Blues, All Down the Line, Shine a Light... Mostly adequate. Some brilliant parts, Tumbling Dice, Rocks Off, Soul Survivor. But to me obviously inferior to Let it Bleed (Stones most harmonious work), Aftermath (consistently brilliant set of songs that work terrifically well as an album), possibly others.
The greatest Stones album, and one of the best of all-time. Not as many singles but every single song is fantastic and go together quite well. Love the more bluesy, southern, gospel American sound.
The most cohesive Stones album. It lacks the big singles of other albums, but makes up for that by providing a consistent, visceral mood. Exile on Main Street is a slow-burner, and it's ultimately more rewarding than any other record in their catalog.
Although I think is a great album, I think it is overrated. It is in my top 100, but I think it is the fourth best Stones album.
I think what makes this album so great is the production to be honest. I makes you feel like you are right there or seeing them in a small venue. The first 5 songs are very strong, the rest is pretty good, but again is more interesting because of the production.
