7 or 8? Perhaps they were the best rock band around for 7 or 8 years, but they were making great singles and solid records for the better part of 15 years, maybe longer, depending on how generous you are. For a while, they existed during a period in which album creation wasn't the primary goal of many bands, and they sure delivered on the singles front. Could probably make a couple albums of material out of those singles that would rival Beggars Banquet, so there's that.

Couldn't disagree more with your Some Girls remarks. Hell of an album, loaded with great singles and swaggering, druggy sleaze that emphasizes what they do well while challenging themselves to try other genres.

Start Me Up is awesome, but, of course, it was in a Microsoft ad, so you must think it's the worst song of all time.

The run of four that Beggars initiates is difficult to rank, but I find myself returning to Beggars most often, and, if I were pushed, I would call it my favorite Stones album. The grit and oscillation between lust and ennui really carry it.

Yeah, gun to my head right now, I'd have to say Beggars is my favorite.

Rocks Off is one of the best album openers in history.

Rocks Off -> Rip This Joint has to be one of the best opening one-two punches in the history of recorded music, and that combo is probably one of the biggest reasons why I love rock and roll and am a perverted degenerate with a drinking problem and a proclivity for filling my lungs with smoke.

well, I guess I'll just fly in the face of fact then.

I feel like such an asshole when I say what my favorite albums by the stones are. I love them so much, the band. I think they're the greatest singles band of all time, I wish I enjoyed all of their albums, but I just can't get in to Sticky fingers and Let it Bleed. Blast away at that, I don't get it either.

My favorite albums are:
Beggars Banquet
Some Girls
Their Satanic Majesties
Exile

mick jagger is the greatest front man to ever live. even to this very day, if jagger shows up, the electricity he exudes makes anyone else in the room seem small in comparison.

I only have a few songs from various albums (I love Shine A Light). My parents saw them when they came here in 2006, in which I missed out and I really regret it now.

Favorite song = Shattered. Love that song so much.

Great, great band, I definitely consider them legends. Mick Jagger & Keith Richards = amazing.

I'll also say that Beggars is my least favorite of the big 4, though I like it more than most albums.

Sticky Fingers is my favorite. 10 tight songs, and not a weak one among them. I think "You Gotta Move" might be their best straight blues, and the 9 originals are all stellar. "Dead Flowers" is one of the best songs I've ever heard. And the finale, "Moonlight Mile", is just lovely beyond anything. Mick Taylor, take a bow.

Also, you got to love any LP sleeve with a giant photo of a guy's dick. I do give them credit for that, and for not just showing some T&A (well, that phase would come later).

not true. well, maybe it is true and the band's entire name wasn't in the title, but i started a stones thread once. but now that i think about it, that had to be around 2005ish, because i was still in school and mrbrau hadn't quite snapped and got banned yet. he did, however, tell me that i needed to get sticky fingers and exile asap (the point of the thread being that while i'd heard a handful of the hits, i really didn't know jack shit about the stones at the time). he was right, of course, and exile really is one of the greatest albums of all time.

Sticky Fingers is a brilliant album. Can't You Here Me Knocking might be my favorite Stones song, which is really saying a lot.

It's amazing how fertile the period of 1968-1972 was for them. Even the leftovers from Exile contain some absolute gems.

I know this is the appreciation thread, but this has been making the rounds for a while, but the rumors are getting stronger.

Stones Near Decision on 50th Anniversary Shows | Music News | Rolling Stone

I kinda hope it's a full tour next year, but I'm starting to doubt it. Maybe some one-off shows, but a full tour I don't think so. Hope to be wrong, though.
