this thread reminded i’d never listened to a full album by them, just best ofs and stuff. i like some of their songs and find others incredibly boring.
just listened to Beggar’s Banquet and Their Satanic Majesties Request. don’t think i’d heard much of the latter before, but had been meaning to check it out as i was intrigued by it being more psychedelic. was pretty good, other than the deliberately weirder tracks which just come off a bit dated, but the melodic stuff is really good. i knew the two biggies on BB but wasn’t sure what i’d think of the rest, thought i might get bored of the bluesy schtick. it’s definitely a less interesting record than Majesties but it’s mostly pretty solid. enjoyed.
still don’t really have any real desire to listen to any more though. can’t imagine sitting through the whole of Exile on Main Street. will return to these two a bit though and probably give Let it Bleed a go.
