10 Rolling Stones Gems

1

Sticky Fingers

Sticky Fingers

Their 'Mona Lisa'. The template for all guitar band wannabes.

2

Exile on Main St.

Exile on Main St.

Strong double album follow-up to 'Sticky Fingers' marred by slipshod studio production. Critics originally torched the set, now they overcompensate by gushing over it.

3

Goats Head Soup

Goats Head Soup

Another media dart board at the time. Savor it now for the twin-pronged guitar attack of Keith & Mick Taylor on a lazy, burnt-out romp.

4

Tattoo You

Tattoo You

Cleaned-up sound, guest musicians + strong songs = mid period comeback.

5

Dirty Work

Dirty Work

One of the great, overlooked albums. Band infighting generated dynamic, creative tension, inspired guest cameos & U2's Steve Lillywhite gave 'em new lease on life in the studio.

6

Black and Blue

Black and Blue

Stones at their most relaxed, a joy to listen to from start to finish.

7

Some Girls

Some Girls

Still holds up but always a bit overpraised. Their bestseller.

8

Bridges to Babylon

Bridges to Babylon

Fun, late period, eclectic collection of catchy tunes, no chartstoppers but band very loosey-goosey + good use of producers & bassists.

9

Steel Wheels

Steel Wheels

Panned as commercial sell-out from geriatric ward running on empty, yet re-invigorated band still SOUNDS better than ever, nonetheless.

10

Let It Bleed

Let It Bleed

All these ancient, London 60s classics pretty much played out by now so this last item really just a placeholder for any which you could easily make a case for.
