    The Album Review Club - Week #111 - (page 1314) - Some Girls - The Rolling Stones

    As a non-Dylan-aficionado I’m in no position to argue but was “Another Side” really considered a classic, iconographic record?

    I actually really like The Royal Scam so I think from debut through Aja that’s a run of six pretty much stellar records and you and I are on precisely the same page (once again!) as to Aja and Katy Lied which are also my two favo(u)rites. Gaucho is ok and I’m not 100 percent on board with...

    On this discussion of greatest album runs I was trying to think of four iconic ones in a row. Pink Floyd? Dark Side, WYWH, Animals (which I think is uneven) and The Wall? I need to do some thinking. I can make a good case for Steely Dan having 6 but a lot of folks think Royal Scam is weak. I’d...

    IV, Houses of the Holy, Phys Graf — that’s only three in a row and I think as we all discussed PG has a bit of filler as it gets to the last two sides. Never cared much for the first three records (I know many disagree); Presence is a letdown. ITTOD is wildly underrated though IMO. That was...

    I do agree with that last sentence for sure. Whether I like the songs or not, that was a HELL of a run of iconic music. Not many can match it; other than the Beatles, maybe no one.

    My problem is that many of their other records have popular songs I've never particularly liked: Sticky Fingers has Brown Sugar; Let it Bleed has Midnight Rambler; etc. Beggar's Banquet is probably the most consistent for me after this one, and I like Exile on Main Street but have always felt it...

    I must say I am surprised the scores aren't a little higher.

    Immediate disqualification due to its association with "The Big Chill." (I hope some of you get that reference. If you don't, ask me.) I like Shelter and Paint and (sacrilegious that you left off) "Can't You hear Me Knocking" but I've never cottoned to their "jumpier" tunes nor their slower...

    I know to which line you are referring but there are another few on that tune that wouldn't pass muster today, plus other lyrics in other songs.

    Donald Trump

    I don’t see it either. Cognitive dissonance has been around for eons. Imagine being a lifelong critical-thinking Republican and supporting conservative but not fascist principles and then being offered a choice between Trump and “the other side” which you’ve staunchly opposed based on logic not...

    I did listen to it on the way to and from work and assumed it was a record from the mid 80s til I checked. I liked it okay and thought the final score here was too low but probably around a 6 from me. I wanted to like it more.

    On the contrary, they were fun to take the piss out of and they don’t know shit about music compared to those on this thread so fuck them and I can’t wait for the next one of those threads. Of course my song won so I might be biased . . . :) Still amazed by that frankly — The Boxer was a total...

    So then: why is Some Girls a great record? All the songs are at least good, and some are great (Whip and Shattered for sure, Miss You and Burden, though rendered less brilliant by 46 years of exposure). There’s nothing half-assed or indifferent here. There’s a variation in style and tempo but...

    A) You’re wrong; B) you don’t need pace like that on a tiny pitch, you need players able to turn in tight spaces.
