"Members who like this artist also like: The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd."

the facts on this site are all you need: 4 albums at 8.5/10, 2 albums at 8/10, and another whopping 7 albums at 7.5/10 (not including compilations). probably my 2nd most listened to band after the Beatles, but I still couldn't really say they're better than Pink Floyd regardless. they still need to be moved up at least 2 places, the idea that nirvana's 3 albums or arcade fire's 4 albums put them ahead of the Stones is a riot. they belong next to dylan and bowie up there....

Some of there songs grate on me, and then some are among my favourite songs ever written. Yet even when their music isn't to my taste, their talent and influence is indisputable. Favourite songs of mine include Wild Horses, Ruby Tuesday, Paint It Black and You Can't Always Get What You Want. Best albums are Sticky Fingers and Let It Bleed.

A history of great music. They have released A LOT of crappy music, but have also released some of the best music ever written. A Bigger Bang was even worth coming back to. Favorite albums are Some Girls, Exile, and Hot Rocks (I feel they are a hits band, not the best album writers).

A pretty fine band, some great songs, and an overrated overall reputation.
Comparing them to the Beatles is just bullshit.

Not a fan of the band, but that doesn't mean I don't like some songs.

I really love Paint It Black and I love I can't get No Satisfaction. Some other songs are good. I have three of their most popular albums but rarely listen.

Mostly great up to and including 'Tattoo You'; after that, they became an overly commercialised brand rather than a band.

Before that though, can't really fault them as their discography shows. 'Sticky Fingers', 'Some Girls', 'Exile on Main St.', 'Beggars Banquet', 'Aftermath', 'Out of Our Heads'... heck, even 'Goats Head Soup' and 'Emotional Rescue' are pretty damn good.

Gotta agree with decurso. My take is that the Stones have passed the acid test with some of the most stunning albums by any band. I guess I'll have to give em a pass on any thing past "Bridges...,"

Any time an artist produces a body as work as large as The Stones, there are going to be some duds. But in the case of The Stones, they were few and far between. At their best they were the epitome of rock 'n' roll, and were consistently one of the greatest live acts on the planey. My favourite period is the late 60's to early 70's. The only albums of theirs I genuinely dislike are Their Satanic Majesties Request, Black and Blue, Undercover and Dirty Work.
