The album that convinced me the Stones had nothing left to say. Only one good track on it imo, "Hide Your Love" - sure, "Angie", but I always thought that was a great sprawling mess of self-indulgence by Jagger.

"Waiting On A Friend" was supposed to have been on this album, but didn't come out until later. Now that's a great song, in that country blues style the Stones are so great at. But this album? Nah. Not after Beggar's Banquet, Let It Bleed, Exile... 3/10 from me.

I'm not so familiar with GHS, so I can't comment on it's worthiness. I think, though, the lads still had a couple of decent albums left in them.

Some Girls (even with those eye-raising lyrics on a few tracks) and the sublime Tattoo You. Admittedly, the latter was comprised of mostly old material but it's probably (in my opinion) the last decent album they released. Honorable mention to Undercover, which showed, at least with a few tracks, that they were trying a different approach.

I like Goats Heads Soup and have the original. Probably not my favorite album though.

I was not privy to the swinging 60's, free love, peace not war, wear a flower on your ear, baby boomer generation, London scene.

I saw them live at Wembley for the Voodoo Lounge.

But this photo makes me think of old blokes from a residential care home on a fancy dress night out, sport.

Another reissue leads to another touring leg, at least when the CoVid-19 is gone. This album is known for 'Star Star' where the raunchy lyrics are quietly sung. I used to have a Joan Jett tape as a teen where she covers that number, and she sings those lyrics loud and clear. That caused quite a stench in America during the summer of 1983.

I went to many Stones concerts and outdoor rock fests but one that stuck in my mind was in 1976 at Earls Court London. There was a giant orange, the music started and the orange opened into segments with the band inside. Amazing.

I saw something similar to that in 1997. U2 were dressed as starship troopers, they entered a silver 'lemon' and it came down onto the stage. It opened up, they came out. The 'lemon' rose up to similate a disco ball as U2 played their hit 'Discotheque'. Clever, amusing and innovative.

I have seen the Stones twice, at the university where I got my degree. The second time around they showed a short video film that featured a car racing thru scenes that had many Rolling Stones song references in the background (like tumbling dice, for instance). Then the 'car' stopped. The music started, the first song was 'Jumping Jack Flash'. Unforgettable.

Goats Head Soup is a good album.

Goats Head Soup is a good album.

I've heard it, and it's got some diversity to it. the first Stones album I bought was 'Steel Wheels' which is also diverse but critics/pundits/snobs now dismiss that one like they do GHS. It's all on your preferences I suppose.

The only terrible Stones album I ever heard was an early live recording. The songs weren't the problem, the production was. Too much screaming fans louder than the band itself. Can't remember the title but it sounds like a quickie job. Avoid. They've been releasing 2 CD/1 DVD sets out the yinyang later that are better quality.
