In the late 60s/Early 70s the Stones made a succession of LPs that are some of the best in rock n roll: BEGGARS BANQUET.... LET IT BLEED..... GET YER YA YAS OUT...... STICKY FINGERS..... EXILE ON MAIN STREET.

In 1973 they released their album GOATS HEAD SOUP. Although it featured many good songs including the hits "Angie" and "Do Do Do Heartbreaker" critics were less enamoured with it than its predecessors. Some were downright harsh. Overall it got mixed reviews but I believe it's still held with some regard these days.

Any comments about this album? Love it hate it, or somewhere in between?

I love all of THEIR SATANIC MAJESTIES REQUEST except for the tune "Sing This All Together See What Happens." My favorite tracks are "Sing This All Together" "In Another Land" "She's A Rainbow" "The Lantern" and "10,000 Light Years From Home."

It is a slow grower. I could see how on the first listen or even the fifth, someone might not love "Can You Hear the Music" or "Coming Down Again." I too love it while recognizing that many of the songs go in directions that might throw some people off.

Plus, it came right on the heels of the most amazing 1-2 punch of them all, "Sticky FIngers" and then "Exile." Nothing could have followed. This album does have a laid back feel - even the rockers do not have the rough-edged raunch that the songs on the previous albums did. "Silver Train" can't catch "All Down the Line," "Star Star" can't catch "Rip This Joint" or "Rocks Off," and even the beauty of "Angie" can't touch "Let It Loose."

So, I think the softer edge and sliightly softer feel to the production make it a less immediate album. I also make a weird distinction that I know is VERY subjective - I feel like on Sticky and Exile, Mick Jagger was just singing his goddamn heart out. On the two albums that follow, I feel like Jagger is investigating his range as a stylist - awesome singing, fantastic, but more like the work of a great actor playing roles superbly than someone singing from his soul. Admittedly that seems more true on IORR than GHS.

And yeah, I am a Stones freak also.

I like this album but as said previously, nothing could follow the one two punch of Exile and Sticky Fingers. I also think Winter is a great sort of lost Stones song. I love that tune. I love the line "And I wish I'd been out in California
When the lights on all the Christmas trees went out" for some reason. NY winters can really drag on. I used to play this whenever I found it on Juke box in bar during the winter months.

EXILE ON MAIN STREET
I've been wearing out Exile on my mp3 player, forgot how good the songs that weren't radio hits are. Great blues album! Goat's Head Soup is o.k. but it's somewhere around midways down my list of favorite Stones albums.

"Dancin' With Mr. D," "100 Years Ago," "Winter," "Can Ya Hear the Music," "Why Do You Hide" - All Great Stones Tunes. Mick, Taylor that is, rips it very Freddie like on "Why Do You Hide.

Still have the record - mint condition with the insert of the goat's head in the boiling soup.

Classic Stones, gets better with time.

Was the first LP i ever bought (at the age of 8). I liked it but i primarily bought it to piss off my older brother, who was and is a HUGE Stones fan. I wanted to beat him to it just in order to make him jealous . Later on he had his "revenge" by convincing me to swap it for some much cheaper compilation LPs from Golden Earring (which had awful edits) .

You're right matt. I was just going from memory. The remastered CD version of Goat's Head is one of the very few times that the CD is better than vinyl IMO. I can hear things on the CD that I never heard on the record. From what I heard that when CD's first started the Stones catelog was one of the first to be converted with little attention to quality. They later reissued exact album art remasters of the records and they were excellent. Goat's Head Soup has a special place in my heart and history.

I love this album, but I can't knock any Stones album. I have grown up with this band, and have respected their whole body of work. Mick, and Keith can never duplicate some of their past albums, but continue to be very productive musically.
