I thought the release of the new album deserved a new thread.

It comes out this Friday but some people have heard it already as some copies have leaked ahead of the release date.

Let's hear your opinions on it here when you're done listening to it.

After one listening of the whole album, I say it is great but  there's something missing from the blues feeling of the covers of the late 60s and the 70s like No Expectations, Love in Vain, Shake your hips, Stop Breaking Down, You gotta move, Mannish Boy, etc or the covers of the 60s in later versions like Little Red Rooster, I Just wanna make love to you all you B&B, etc etc

Wanna listen again, but will wait for my Vinyl and Super Deluxe CD

I like it. A real return to their roots. There are some great song choices and the production is cool. Gritty and dirty with a subtle distortion over everything, which is how blues should be IMO. I hate slickly produced blues.

Not to go backsliding here, but the auld formula of six covers and four originals would mean proof of life among the fanbase.

The difficulty perhaps would be in getting the style and substance of the covers and originals to match.  That was easier and more natural when the music world was closer to its roots.

After a first listen "Just your Fool",  "Blue and Lonesome", "Everybody knows about my good thing", and "I can't quit you baby" sound good to me immediate. Not a bad score for a first listening. Is it me or is the sound quality not really that great?

LOL or wait many years for the super deluxe edition in 5.1, 7.1 and MONO!!

About the original question I read somewhere that intentionally they used old equipment to record and give the album the sound of the 50s

I have mixed emotions with B&L

First is, that I'm very happy to get a 'new' studio album. New material is always good. But when I first listened to it yesterday, I haven't had the same great feeling that I had when I first listened to songs from their last albums like 'laugh I nearly died, anybody seen my baby, love is strong', it feels to me a bit like the red devil session part 2. There are some great songs on B&L, especially the slower ones, blue and lonesome is my favorite at the moment, but for my feeling, it's not really a new record. IMO they should have released it like jamming with Edward, don't make such a 'sensation' out of it. But ok...

What I recognized, too, is that Keith playing is so much in the background like on no other record. The difficult parts are played by Ronnie or Clapton, from the first listening I only count one Keith solo, but I could be wrong.

Production wise I don't like the sound very much. It's not polished, that's great, but sometimes so heavy distorted, that it sound more worse than the worst stones blues songs from the early sixties. And I mean some of the greatest blues records have superb sound and not sounding polished, like muddy waters 'folk singer' or junior wells 'hoodoo man blues' or the ' American folk & blues festival '65. Sometimes it's hard to tell who plays what on B&L.

Thanks to Gazza's Spotify playlist i must say that the original versions of B&L are so great, that the stones doesn't top them, which they imo mostly did on their previous covers. But being par with them is a great Effort, too.

I will of course have many more listening to it die I hope that it grows on me.

Excuse my bad English

The record is good on the first listen .. better on the second and now very good now on the third complete listen.. and it has a promise of getting better and better.

It is old school in sound and song selection ... and dark .. meaning a dark .. rawer ... crude production style yet simplistic and quite stripped down. A very 'live' sounding record and Jaggers vocal effort here is perhaps better than anything he's ever made a concentrated strong effort to or at least every bit as good. His voicals are dark .. huge.. and from the gut.

It is a homage and what purists have always wanted. Nothing is really generic in song selection (mostly all obscure songs) or in tone. There is a black (no pun) .. rough edged ..darker feel all the way around on the record
.

I hear The Rolling Stones in a larger room playing the blues best they can and from the heart with multiple mics in and around them to capture it. That is what I hear .. that is what it was .. and that is what it sounds like. It is not a new studio album of originals but a tide-over .. special 'treat' now (and to spin once in a while to once in a blue moon down the road). Again .. it will be played in the future as their tribute to The blues done raw.. and stripped down but also done well.

It will age well and it will grow on folks more and more. It is quality .. yet quite junky in style at the same time.. with a classic 1940's - 1960's blues record over tone.

Heard the .mp3, like the slower numbers better than the faster - partly because of the sound quality complained about above.  This may improve in the lossless.  But on first listen, the musicianship seems more impressive on the slower songs.  Liked it immediately more when the less frenetic title track came around.

Overall, an all-blues album seems without any relief from...the blues.  On an early Stones record, even the first EPs or LP, there'd be a mix of R&B and blues, which seems smarter and more entertaining.  Surely there's also forgotten R&B numbers they've never covered.

See Keith's Crosseyed Heart for an album that offers both blues and relief from the medium.

I think if, say, Led Zep had made an all-blues album, I'd feel the same way.  I remember getting Aerosmith's all-blues album and not playing it much - not in years. 

Maybe I'll like the whole Blue and Lonesome better in lossless.  But, when you play a whole Howlin' Wolf or Muddy Waters album, why don't you feel you need a break from that sound?
