Pick your 5 Favorite Rolling Stones Albums

So, I was going to do something kinda silly/fast/fun with the previous survivor winners, but then I saw that we hadn't done The Stones yet, so I'll put that on hold in order to take on a huge project instead.

So, yeah, kicking off a Stones survivor, at least as long as interest remains.

But, we definitely need to decide a stopping point, because, unlike with Bowie, I don't think there are ANY albums of there's past the mid-80s that anyone's gonna go to bat for, right? So I'll list all of the albums in this thread, for completion's sake, but we'll only do survivor's through Tattoo You, and we can do a leftover's round at the end for any standalone songs that may be worth while (EX: The new singles from the most recent greatest hits got a bit of love). Unless of course some would rather do otherwise.

Anyways, yeah,

VOTE FOR YOUR FIVE (5) FAVORITES


And I'm leaving it up to you if you're voting for UK or US versions. It's your vote, use it the way you'd like. I'm going to be combining all songs from both versions into album threads anyways, so, for example, "Ruby Tuesday" will be in the Between The Buttons round.

For your own education, here are the previous final rounds of the bands/artists we have done survivors for:

See I like all their albums, including post Tattoo You. Well, I could do without Dirty Work aside from a few good songs.

Have to think for 5! Sticky Fingers definitely in it though, and probably Goats Head Soup.

Goat's Head Soup > Some Girls


Do yourself a favor, Ashley, and forget about including everything after Tat too You in your Survivor. The few highlights aren't worth the trouble.

Yeah, I didn't plan on doing rounds for those albums unless someone put up a fuss. I'll do a catch all round for any songs we might've missed along the way, plus singles, but I highly doubt there's much to worry about there.

I've only heard a handful of Stones albums but I might follow cobbler and try and take part in this.

The general consensus with Some Girls is that it has plenty of flaws and is hardly top-tier Stones...plenty of Stones junkies like myself tend to prefer everything from the start of their career through Exile over Some Girls...

I think SG merely gets attention because that was the point where the Stones started to become a heritage live act and it helped that LP sell a bajillion copies. It's their most popular, no?
