Review this album
Rev.RikardOct 21, 2005This is Jagger's best. Though each solo recording only reveals the glimmer twin's need of one another, this is one of the few albums to which I can listen with a genuine sense of enjoyment. A thread of joy weaves itself through this collection of songs. Jaggers voice, though usually a vehicle for the blues, pulls off a celebratory sound that doesn't sound forced. Most solo albums by Jagger and Richards sound like medicore Stones' recordings with substitute musicians. However, here Jagger sounds like he has something to personally say that may or may not be shared by Keith. Though I always miss Richard's lovable, raunchy guitar licks on Mick's solo recordings, Jagger's vocals and the lyrical content allow me to miss those licks a little less. Making a Stone's fan ignore the absence of that unique rythm guitar, so definitive to the Stone's sound, is no small feat. Goddess pulls it off. Still, enough with the solo stuff, and enough with the "thrown together" material to create a tour (ala Bigger Bang). Find a hot, humid basement in France and churn out the quality stuff that dubbed you the "world's greatest rock and roll band."… Expand

TrizkaFeb 9, 2002I just can't stop playing this album. I've never particularly liked Mick Jagger until I saw the documentary 'Being Mick' which showed some of the making of this album. I am now a total 'new generation' convert. This is great music.
