    Not one of my favorites, either. I felt they had lost the rock feel and were way too heavy into country harmony - and not even that good at it.

    My favorite was let it Bleed, and the earlier rock/blues hits from AM radio days.

    One of my all-time favorite bands but this album never did much for me.
    Not my cup o' tea as it were.

    I don't think it was a poorly done album, I just don't like the style.

    NewSouth, the old one sucks
    Ronnie Wood is average like Ringo is average.
    I used to believe both were unremarkable, and you play and learn enough and you know they both smoke.

    Probably the greatest four album run by any rock band in history.

    Anything after these... well...

    He's not yelling at clouds - he's yelling about old stuff - not new things he can't accept. Not to mention he's right. SG is a step backwards.

    :)

    To clarify, I actually don't dislike Ronnie at all. My flippant comment was in the context of the Stones only...

    I think he was great, absolutely irreplaceable, with Rod Stewart and the Faces. I just don't like the direction the Stones took after he joined, which may be no fault of his, frankly... although I do prefer Mick Taylor's lead playing in the context of the Stones.

    Without a doubt, the greatest four album run by any rock band in history. Fixed it for you.

    I won't argue with you. Music appreciation is subjective. Enjoy Some Girls and I'll continue to enjoy the good Stones albums... ;)

    "I think that Some Girls is better than Exile on Main Street"

    REALLY?
    Have you really listened???
    The emotional performances captured by everyone involved in the creation of Exile, is untouchable !
    Really the epitome of Rock n Roll in its heyday.

    I get that. Taylor was around for the apex of songwriting and a pretty clear division of lead and rhythm guitar parts.

    Ronnie came in as the band was shifting in multiple facets. I think he’s pretty underrated as far as meshing with the ever changing direction they went in.

    I don’t really prefer one player over the other. I definitely agree the songwriting suffered as the 70s wore on.

    I do, however, think that many guitarists could have filled the role Taylor had pretty easily but that it would be much harder to find someone who could chameleon as well as Woody once things got more blurred in the writing and playing.

    I LOVE Some Girls.... Jim has perfect mix of rawness and desperation in his voice & playing:



    I'd like to hear those English guys cover this: Could be right up their alley (or mew?), like the covers they did way back in the glorious Waaaay Back:

    It was no more “Rod Stewart and the Faces” than it was “Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones.”
