Still one of my all time favorite, even if it did get dishonorable mention on that sucky albums thread
People love this album or hate it. It's my favorite Rolling Stones album. My wife's best friend hates it and refered to it as "nothing music"
Something I always play on long drives.
I think we've been down this road before, but I'll bite. This is not only (arguably) the best Stones record, it is one of the best records ever. Few records made more of an impact on me growing up. Lo fi? Maybe, but it still delivers in raw emotion.
Your wife's friend is a "Boston" fan I'll bet. Definitely a "Boston" fan.
Exile is a masterpiece!
Even the cuts that were left out. Here’s a favorite of mine released later on.
I'm more of a Sticky Fingers guy. Can't sit through a whole listen of Exile.
I wore out my vinyl copy of Exile when it was first released. Still one of my all-time faves!
Song for song, it’s the greatest album of songs ever made. Anybody who would classify it amongst “dishonorable” mentions just doesn’t get it. It is the prerequisite garage rock meets honky Tonk rock meets burned out redemption song rock. They may or may not be the greatest rock band ever, but Exile on Main Street is absolutely the greatest rock album ever made. And by a bunch of junkies to boot
A heavy influence, easily my most-listened Stones record.
Well there is sticky, let it, beggars, and exile! Done! Can't complain about that!
Not my favorite Stones album, but has my favorite Stones song on it. I hear the intro to Tumbling Dice and I'm hooked. Also love Happy, All Down the Line and Rocks Off. But overall, I'm a Sticky Fingers guy too.
Personally I like Let It Bleed more, but I totally get Exile, which actually represents the whole Stones ethos better than any other one of their records.
Got some of favorite Stones songs on it. Sweet Virginia, Loving Cup, Happy, Shine a Light. No song on this album get skipped.
Heroin rock at ts finest!
All Down The Line single version. More piano (Nicky Hopkins) upfront in the mix. Love it!
In my opinion...the greatest rock album of all time.
I read in some book (Stones Touring Party, maybe?) that it was laid out as 4 different sets. Not a double record experience like The Wall, but more like 4 EPs that happen to come together.
"They" weren't junkies yet. Ever wonder why every album after this isn't good? That's when the junk took over.
