Their Satanic Majesties Request (Remastered)

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Without a doubt, no Rolling Stones album -- and, indeed, very few rock albums from any era -- split critical opinion as much as the Rolling Stones' psychedelic outing. Many dismiss the record as sub-Sgt. Pepper posturing; others confess, if only in private, to a fascination with the album's inventive arrangements, which incorporated some African rhythms, Mellotrons, and full orchestration. What's clear is that never before or after did the Stones take so many chances in the studio. Some critics and fans feel that the record has been unfairly undervalued, partly because purists expect the Stones to constantly champion a blues 'n' raunch worldview. About half the ...

Without a doubt, no Rolling Stones album -- and, indeed, very few rock albums from any era -- split critical opinion as much as the Rolling Stones' psychedelic outing. Many dismiss the record as sub-Sgt. Pepper posturing; others confess, if only in private, to a fascination with the album's inventive arrangements, which incorporated some African rhythms, Mellotrons, and full orchestration. What's clear is that never before or after did the Stones take so many chances in the studio. Some critics and fans feel that the record has been unfairly undervalued, partly because purists expect the Stones to constantly champion a blues 'n' raunch worldview. About half the material is very strong, particularly the glorious "She's a Rainbow," with its beautiful harmonies, piano, and strings; the riff-driven "Citadel"; the hazy, dream-like "In Another Land," Bill Wyman's debut writing and singing credit on a Stones release; and the majestically dark and doomy cosmic rocker "2000 Light Years from Home," with some of the creepiest synthesizer effects devised by Brian Jones ever to grace a rock record. The downfall of the album was caused by some weak songwriting on the lesser tracks, particularly the interminable psychedelic jam "Sing This All Together See What Happens." It's a much better record than most people give it credit for being, though, with a strong current of creeping uneasiness that undercuts the gaudy psychedelic flourishes. In 1968, the Stones would go back to the basics, and never wander down these paths again, making this all the more of a fascinating anomaly in the group's discography.

    Antonio was ahead of his time!

    Unlike Antonio from Chile, previous reviewer, I passed on this when it came out,being a drummer in the mid-sixties and still playing now. But ANTONIO was right! It is a rare GEM! I have re-discovered it a few years back. I agree entirely, a must for serious STONES fans. Give it a chance,it will grow on you. It was the Pyschedelic sixties and times were changing at light speed! The boys were just experimenting and having a little fun, as did the Beatles with Magical Mystery Tour! Cheers to you Antonio, you new it was great FIRST time you heard it. PS - You can rarely beat B &amp N for price and I LOVE their artist bios/profiles! No I don't work for them,I just shop here!- Ron Larocque,Ottawa,Canada.

    Shocking

    I was just a kid, summer holiday - out of school! - in the far wild side of the country, deep on the hills of south-central Chile... I used to be a Beatles fan, but when I heard "High Tide & Green Grass" with those ugly bad-looking folks on the cover, I kick the mop tops and throw my lot with the Stones. The next album I bought was "Their Satanic"... Man!!! I couldn't believe it. I mean, some people really hates this album, but I loved it, trully... The two versions of "Sing this all" are strange enough to scare people unaware of the time this album was made. But with jewells like "Citadel", "2000 man", "She's a Rainbow", "Gomper", "The Lantern", 2000 light years" and "On with the Show", it really drove me out of my mind like nothing else... Today, grown old and gray hairs, I still hear the album (now on CD, the original I've lost it who knows where) and experiment almost the same sensation that give me thrills all those years ago... I can even remember the sun, the wind and the mountains, oscillating with "Their Satanic Majesties Request"!
