  1. Where the regular album is musically quirky and lyrically either risky ("Some Girls," "Far Away Eyes") or generalized ("Respectable," "Beast of Burden," damn right "When the Whip Comes Down"), the bonus disc is musically classic-Stones and lyrically small-scale.

    This edition has 12 outtakes, most of which have been hoarded on bootlegs by Stones fanatics for years. Some of the bonus tracks are nearly as hot as the originals.

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

    It shows that the Some Girls era was, and remains, one of the most productive of the Stones' career.

    This set feels like two complete albums-Some Girls One and Some Girls Two-and the sequel nearly manages to match the original's vital power.

    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.

    It all adds up to probably the best Stones album since... well, since Some Girls, actually.

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