I actually really agree with this. I actually think I find it the most consistent work of theirs after Exile on Main Street - one of my problems with the Stones actually is they often have a sour track or two on what otherwise would be an amazing record. Some Girls... It has no real misstep imo (I even find Far Away Eyes fitting and love the sarcasm). Tattoo You has too many misteps even if I agree it's worth while (on my list below) and while I was surprised with the quality of Bigger Bang, I wouldn't purchase it. I'd probably purchase Tattoo You because of the cover art... haha - probably the coolest Stones cover art imo.
I also wouldn't purchase anything before Aftermath either though.
Tattoo You is worthwhile, and I think I prefer it.
Tattoo You is actually nothing more than a collection of outtakes and resurrected rejected song fragments that went back as far as ten years. Some of the music on the album is so old that there are songs that feature Mick Taylor playing instead of Ron Wood. If it weren't for having most of the vocals overdubbed in 1980-81, it would be basically an outtakes compilation. _________________ May we all get to heaven
