Maybe I should have used emotional influence instead of 'experience" in my other posts. It is the emotional influence of the songs that make them great.
Every album's quality is equal to the experience of hearing it and what is going on in one's life at the time. For me I get so excited about a new album and indoctrinate myself so thoroughly in it that I associate each album with fond memories.
I cannot divorce what was going on when I first heard Exile. The experience of growing to love it (at 15)and memorizing it. The same with GHS. Saying GHS is not as good an album is like saying 73 was not as good as 72.
The Stones put out the music that is perfect for the time. So many people dis "Dirty Work," but for me it was the perfect album for the mid 80's. It was angry and raw, and hell, I wanted to fight. "Had it With You" was so perfect for my mood I blasted out my girlfriend's bitching with it.
I put on Sticky Fingers when I hit the road because I think it is perfect to leave town to Brown Sugar.
I am listening to GHS right now and it is a fresh to me today as it was in 73. I graduated High School to that album.
That being said, and getting off my soap box, I have my favorite albums. I came of age to "Sticky Fingers" and "Exile." I collect every bootleg of the 72 tour as I can find. "Exile" is by far my favorite album. I cannot say the best, because all of them are the best at the time, but my favorite.
"Voodoo Lounge" holds a special spot for me because it was the first "adult" album the Stones put out.
Anyway... LIB, SF, "Exile" GHS and IORR are my favorites. Largely because of the experiences, emotional influences, I was having.
But now I am building up to a new album. So I am going to say the new album, without hearing it, is my favorite album.
There is nothing like a new album coming out. It is like all the best experiences of my life congeal and open up with new potential.
I will be there dancing and singing with the Stones. Time will be suspended and the eternity of my soul, intimately attached to the soul of the music, will expand.
Thanks for helping me prepare for the big event in Chicago Sept. 10.
