    The proof is in the music; it sounds juts great. [Jan 2012, p.98]

    Cagey as ever, the Stones hide which of these are full-fledged outtakes and which are recent refurbishments very well, but ultimately it doesn't matter: this is a tremendous expansion of a classic album by every measure.

    Some Girls showed that the Stones could pull off the old magic using some flashy new tricks.

    Though the additions don't enhance the original album's legend, nor do they diminish it any more than the fact that the band sagged once again into artistic complacency after its release.

    A second disc continues the upbeat mood of the main album. [Jan 2012, p.135]

    The Stones mined its [sessions] results for years to come, creating little else of value otherwise and entering the nostalgia-act phase of their career, effectively making Some Girls the last gasp of credible new music by the self-proclaimed World's Greatest Rock and Roll Band.

    The dozen unearthed tracks here [are] the outtakes of the outtakes. [2 Dec 2011, p.77]

    Easily their best album since Exile On Main Street, and remains in their Top 5 records, and does not hold back on their typical rock and roll sound. Simply perfection. Expand
