ALBUM RATINGS

 

I never could make up my mind which Stones album I  loved the most, Beggars Banquet, Let It Bleed or Sticky Fingers. Now I know. I rated (and reviewed) all the studio albums (American releases) on a scale of 0.0 to 10. For the first time in years I listened to all their studio albums in a short time span, and I did this just just for the purpose of rating them. Sure was a fun job! You may ask why there are no "tens" here. Of course as a true Stones fan I give several of their albums tens*,  but for this section I rated each album song by song and then added up the average for each album. For me anyway, not all songs on all of the Stones albums are tens, therefore the reason for no albums rated a ten on this list.

To check out how any individual song rated, lyrics, a short review or other info about the album (personnel, etc.) just click on the album below. To see my favorite song list, click here. Make sure you vote for your top favorite Stones album in our ongoing poll.

Note: These albums were first rated (and the above paragraphs were written) back in 1998 when this site first went on-line. In 2005, during a 7 month period, I re-rated all of the albums, below are the new ratings. The old ratings can be found inside each review.

Fans Ratings: Also listed below are the fans ratings. The "Fans' Poll" column was complied from polls run here from 2002 till 2005. The "Fans' Review" column comes from the ratings given over at the Fans' Review page*. Unlike my ratings below, the fans' ratings don't come from an average of each song, but a rating of the entire LP in general, more like my old alternative top ten Stones album list two, written up in 1999. To see my two alternative top ten Stones album lists, go here.
