From antaiospiano 09/03/2018 23:32
I was wondering whether I should address the blatant misogyny and chauvenism on the songs “Stupid Girl” and “Under My Thumb” and just take the inevitable hate, but someone actually already did.
So let me continue to why I gave this a 6/10: it’s mediocre. They were a mediocre band at best before Beggar’s Banquet. The only reason why white people acted and still act like they’re rock heroes, is because they’re white. Real rock ‘n’ roll legends were Little Richard, Chuck Berry, and Ike Turner. And no, I’m not being racist against white people by saying this. Rock ‘n’ roll was started by black people, it’s only logical that white people needed time to catch up. Some even believe it started with a black woman: look up Sister Rosetta Tharpe’s “Strange Things Happen Everyday”.

I have the US version and tried adding it but I guess it was rejected. I like that it contains Paint it Black but this version doesn't. I find it odd that both versions are not on this site.

Aftermath famous for being famous without actually being any good and here's why

(1) It's by the Rolling Stones , British album number 4
(2) It is one of the earliest albums to eclipse the 50 minute mark
(3) "Goin Home" is one of the earliest rock songs to eclipse the 10 minute mark , but its completely boring
(4) The Stones were widely criticised for the albums misogynous content e.g "Mother's Little Helper" , "Stupid Girl " and "Under My Thumb"
(5) The shear number of tracks which quite frankly are poor , which is every song bar: "Under My Thumb" (not withstanding misogynous lyrics) , "It's Not Easy" and the Beatle-esque "What To Do "

Woof !

From Sandrof1969 02/11/2018 15:41
In "Aftermath" c'è un equilibrio inaudito sia tra gli strumenti ( quelli tradizionali e quelli, esotici per l'epoca, suonati quasi tutti da Brian Jones ), sia tra i membri del gruppo, equilibrio che si spezzerà con la presa di potere della coppia scintillante. Album strano, originale e bellissimo.

The opener, Mothers Little Helper, is the Stones at their absolute sardonic best. The rest is a mix of great rock tunes and acceptable quality filler.

From rileytfindley 09/22/2016 15:43
There isn't too much criticisms I can conjure up for this record. It has a pretty consistent sound that creates catchy hooks and interesting instrumentation. The drums and the plucking of the guitar on 'Flight 505' is a great example. It sounds as if the Rolling Stones have matured from their previous work. Aftermath does feature more country-oriented works, like 'Doncha Bother Me' and 'High and Dry', neither of which seem jarring when compared the rest of the tracklisting. 'High and Dry' even has an interesting percussion effect that I'm not quite sure how they made. This album is a rock album, through and through. It may seem somewhat stripped down compared the masterpieces that came out in the same year by creative titans The Beatles and The Beach Boys, but it's a fun standalone piece. 'Paint It Black' is the best song.
