This album is definitely The Rolling Stones' best albums. Perfect blues rock. Gritty and soulful and essential for loves of blues rock.

The best era for the band. Mick Taylor brought it all together and renewed an energy in the band. Perfectly recorded and performed.

I like the Stones quite a bit, but this is an album that doesn't resonate with me. I wouldn't put it in their top five works.

I don't really listen to the Rolling Stones but this was the first record I listened to of theirs. I really like the old influences they draw from.

As far as rock n' roll goes, it doesn't get any better than this. When I got my first car and started smoking weed in high school, this was the only album I listened to for several months; the CD never left the confines of my car. So it makes for some of the best driving music too. This isn't the kind of album where you have to analyze and understand the songwriting and the importance of the themes; just let it sink into your bloodstream and you'll suddenly become a happier, funner person for the rest of your life! The lyrics and guitar solos are of secondary importance to the overall feel the album gives you. I managed to even turn on a few teachers to this album, which proves it's infectious attitude despite some of the dirty subject material.
