I agree entirely, and the answer is Beggar's Banquet. Aside from the obvious standouts in Sympathy for the Devil and Street Fighting Man, Stray Cat Blues is one of the most salacious tunes I have ever heard, and Salt of the Earth must be their best album closer.

Ouch, no love for pre-Beggars Banquet Stones? Those early records have some killer tunes.

Exile was my second choice. Epic.

This is good. The best albums are getting all the votes.

Let It Bleed for me, but Sticky Fingers and Exile are in a close 2nd/3rd.

I still want to know what the "other" vote was for. I'll use me imagination and pretend it was for Still Life.

As long as it was not Emotional Rescue, I am fine with it.

Beggar's Banquet, Sticky Fingers, Let it Bleed and Exile are the albums I will get into.

However, I went for Let It Bleed. For no other reason than that it's playing at the moment. Gimme Shelter, Love In Vain, Midnight Rambler, Monkey Man, You Can't Always Get What You Want. Need I go on?

True. But they might be lacking in being great albums. And when it comes to great albums, I think Beggar's Banquet - Exile On Main Street wins out over, say, Aftermath.

Exactly. With the earlier Stones albums, I prefer taking the best songs and making a compilation out of them, as there was never an album I really liked all the way through.

Same with anything after Exile as well.

But those four albums are quintessential Stones.

I will echo what a lot of you have said about the Stones "Big 4" albums. That's a stretch of dirty, bluesy rock and roll that's pretty hard to beat. Classic stuff.

For my personal favorite it's always been between 'Beggars Banquet' and 'Let It Bleed' so I'll vote for 'Let it Bleed' here to break the current tie.

I'm really digging Goat's Head Soup lately, and while it would certainly be the weakest of the 5, I think it deserves to be included in that great run.

This poll proves it:

Sticky Fingers is underrated on this forum.
