Overview

Mostly recorded without Brian Jones -- who died several months before its release (although he does play on two tracks) and was replaced by Mick Taylor (who also plays on just two songs) -- this extends the rock and blues feel of Beggars Banquet into slightly harder-rocking, more demonically sexual territory. The Stones were never as consistent on album as their main rivals, the Beatles, and Let It Bleed suffers from some rather perfunctory tracks, like "Monkey Man" and a countrified remake of the classic "Honky Tonk Woman" (here titled "Country Honk"). Yet some of the songs are among their very best, especially "Gimme Shelter," with its shimmering guitar lines and apocalyptic lyrics; the harmonica-driven "Midnight Rambler"; the druggy party ambience of the title track; and the stunning "You Can't Always Get What You Want," which was the Stones' "Hey Jude" of sorts, with its epic structure, horns, philosophical lyrics, and swelling choral vocals. "You Got the Silver" (Keith Richards' first lead vocal) and Robert Johnson's "Love in Vain," by contrast, were as close to the roots of acoustic down-home blues as the Stones ever got.

This classic album is seen by many to be one of the greatest.I can see why.After the first listen I was hooked.The first song gimme shelter is one of the strongest on the album and is followed by the sad love in vain which could almost make you cry listening to Jaggers tearful vocals.The only bad track is the third.Country Honk is quite an earsore.The rest is class in a glass.Monkey man absoulutely rocks, as does live with me, monkey man and the title track.The album ends with You Cant Always Get What You Want.Another classic stones track starting with build up from the choir right to the faster pased ending.A must for fans alike.

Stones second best album behind Exile on Main street. Keith's guitar work is the best he's ever made.

This is why I love the Stones. They mix blues with pop and sound great. My favorite songs are "Gimme Shelter," "Love In Vain" and "You Got The Silver." "Love in Vain" is a superb blues song that sounds like something Muddy Waters or Howlin' Wolf or someone like that would write. I wouldn't buy this album if I wanted to get into the Stones. For that, you probably need "Sticky Fingers" or "Exile on Main Street."

Has to be one of the top three Stones albums of all time. Nice blues, the token country song that you get on almost every album. The lyrics and guitar are as good as it gets. Rock On

I thought my 5 star rating and my title would explain my opinions for this album.

Stone cold classic. An equal to Beggars Banquet and second only to Exile on Main Street. Add the 3 CD "singles" set and you have one hell of a weekend in the works.
