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.

The Stones were arguably the best band on the planet for those years between Beggars Banquet and Sticky Fingers. They lost relevance but they had one hell of a run of brilliant albums. I prefer to remember the high points and ignore the misteps.

The Stones may have the best singles of any of the 60s/70s giants, and Mick Jagger is one of the most entertaining front men rock has ever known. But they never seemed to be able to have more than about three-quarters of a great album, and I wish we could have had more songwriting and vocal contributions beyond the Glimmer Twins.

Rock n roll giants, the albums probably didn't quite reach the heights of their rivals - but one of those legendary groups whose contribution went beyond the music itself.

Never really a big fan, although Main St. was pretty good. Richards is given more credit as a guitarist than he's worth, imo
