Rolling Stones - Exile on Main Street RIAA Certified Platinum! Click here to see this CD at!

By Steve Knopper

From the swaggering frustration in the first song ("I only get my rocks off while I'm sleeping," Mick Jagger sings in the hyper "Rocks Off"), the Stones speed through familiar neighborhoods of country, blues, and R&B on Exile. They never even bother to stop when they've crashed into something. They don't leap into new worlds so much as master the old ones, turning Slim Harpo's blues obscurity "Hip Shake" into a harp-and-piano steamroller and setting spines a-cracking in "Ventilator Blues." Both "Tumbling Dice" and Keith Richards's "Happy" have become hits, but the 1972 album is most notable for its overall murky adrenaline.

"I like it but Jagger's vocals seem a little drowned out by the music. I wish they had recorded it like the It's Only Rock'n Roll album."


"The album's a complete mess, Keith, Mick Taylor, Bobby Keys and Glyn Johns were all saturated in heroin. The tracks recorded at Nellcote, near Villefranche, France were only saved by the mixing in LA in early '72, when Jagger and Richards did all the vocals. This album sucks. Buy "Let It Bleed" if you want a true representation of the band at its best. "
