The Rolling Stones' new blues album is an amplified death wheeze. And it rules



http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/music/la-et-ms-rolling-stones-blue-and-lone...




" On guitars, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood deconstruct familiar riffs, breaking them down into jagged shards, as in a snarling rendition of “All of Your Love,” originally recorded by Magic Sam, and Lightnin’ Slim’s “Hoo Doo Blues,” in which one of them slashes at a single note for most of the song.

This isn’t a guitar-hero record with complicated, athletic soloing meant to showcase hard-won technique. Which isn’t to say the playing is unimpressive; it’s often amazing.  "

Heard it after much anticipation tuesday night; found it streaming and played it twice fully through with selected tracks on a thurd go round. Loved it; reading reviews and comments on iorr - first night with a new Stones album, memorable and magic.

Am on a 7th or 8th listen and I feel it simply gets better. I have to say  Ronnie is amazing, Keith gets in some great licks but it seems to be Ronnie laying down the sweetest of blues riffs and licks. Jagger is wonderful as so many reviews have testified to; vocals and harmonica utterly terrific.

It is the slower tunes on which the real Stones magic seems to shine the brightest - Let it Rain, Hoodoo Blues,  All my Love and the fantastic title track are superb.

This album has echoes of so many other great Stones periods...can't help thinking about Now! and Exile and 12x5. And Brian Jones.


Clapton's great on it too.

One thing that struck me today.

Including all their studio, live and compilation albums (but excluding the archive live releases like Leeds '82) this is only the third Stones album that was completely recorded in their home country.

The others were their debut album (both the UK and US versions) and 'Satanic Majesties'.

Even the 'Got live if you want it' live album from the '66 UK tour had some studio material recorded in the US.

Their greatest albums tend not to give you the initial, but fleeting, rush that goes away after a few listens. A Bigger Bang is the best example of the fleeting rush that then goes away and holds little interest for me today. Their best ones take a few listens to start seeping through your skin. This album is growing with each listen just like their best stuff. You discover something new every time you listen to it. I know that in 6 months or 1 year or 10 years, I will still say that this is their best album since Tattoo You. The showcasing of Mick is my favorite part of this album. All this crap about Keith being the soul of the Stones and Mick being the business mind is a load of crap but Mick supports that canard with his failure to fully embrace the fact that of all the Stones, he is the truest bluesman of all. People forget that most of the Stones blues tunes were written by Mick. It is a truly magical album but the way that albums continue to live and breathe is by being given live run outs and the chances of that happening are close to zero. The only tiny criticism I have is that as much as I love Darryl Jones, of all their albums since Voodoo Lounge, I wish Bill Wyman was on this one.

I was about to mention something about how the fact that this was recorded in England gives the album some added magic Gazza. I have always said that one of the biggest stumbling blocks in Mick and Keith's writing relationship - if not the biggest - is that they have lived in different countries for over 30 years. From a selfish point of view, I wish Keith would move back for his twilight years.

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


After listening to it several times, first the singles, then the files of the whole album, then the album streaming on Spotify, finally I’m gonna listen the album as intended... my babies are here!!!

This album needs to be listened to in its entirety.  It's been awhile since they've put out an album with no weak tracks. Nothing you have to make excuses for. Zero cringes.

One or two blues covers wouldn't have had the same impact.  This album makes me stalk around my study, throwing punches at the air and swearing.

87,000 copies sold in the UK during the first 5 days with 2 more days to go, an impressive #1 debut next Friday.
It will get the second best debut sales of year after Bowie's Blackstar.

This is my loose opinion. MICK's harp and voice is the solid highlight for me throughout. I love Charlie's drumming style and it sounds like he is using brushes instead of sticks which is different, and I love his song endings, ba-boom!  I like Ronnie's playing pretty good but KEEF's sound is kind of  hard to hear, it is in the background and I wish it was louder and stronger. Maybe more takes or remixes would of been better. The sound of the album is not too crisp but that is probably intentional.  I'm more of a rock chick than a blues chick but I love MICK so I'm happy overall but I cant see myself playing it when I want to party. Its the type of record you listen to when you are alone, so Blue & Lonesome is a very appropriate title. When I'm blue and low, I'll get some comfort from listening to it.  Otherwise I'll stick to the rock songs like Bitch & Rocks Off! Sorry guys but its a bit of a let down for me, but I'm glad they did it and I'm glad it is selling so well.

The Rolling Stones' Blue & Lonesome claims UK's Number 1 on this week's Official Albums Chart with massive opening week sales


Congratulations to The Rolling Stones, who claim this week’s Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart with their latest album Blue & Lonesome – their first new studio album to hit the top spot in more than 20 years.

The iconic band’s first studio record in more than a decade shifted a massive 106,000 combined sales to claim the top spot – the second-highest opening sales week for an album this year, behind David Bowie’s Blackstar, which logged 146,000 sales in its first week back in January.

The Rolling Stones commented: “We are absolutely delighted with the success of Blue & Lonesome in the UK and around the world.”

99% of Blue & Lonesome's sales were either physical purchases or downloads, with 1% attributed to streams. In terms of digital vs. physical sales, physical accounted for 95,000 of it's overall total.

The record, which is also certified gold today by the BPI, is The Rolling Stones’ 12th Official UK Number 1 album. Their last new studio collection to reach the summit was Voodoo Lounge in 1994, though a re-release of their 1972 album Exile On Main St also reached Number 1 in 2010.
