I've got to admit I grew up, like most people, loving the Beatles and listening to the Stones as a singles band that after a while started giving the Beatles a run for their money. But I would have been in my late 20s before I began to prefer the Stones--and that was part of a more general development I made towards blues and rhythm n blues at that time. I was playing myself and trying to write bluesy stuff, so the Stones suddenly seemed more relevant to me. Also, I had a close friend who turned me on to UNDERCOVER. I was really impressed with the sonic quality and pounding beats on that album. After that, I bought all the back copies and came to appreciate the Stones as something more than the Beatle wannabes they'd seemed to be with lots of the successful pop stuff they released in the 60s.
Anyway, until the early 80s, it was no contest for me--the Beatles were way ahead and, as Keno says, every album had multiple complex melodies. Since the discovery of UNDERCOVER I have preferred the Stones, but that is partly due to my more general musical tastes. Also, even in the mid eighties the Stones--warhorses though they may have been--were still together as a band. That was enticing as they were still making music and not history and long finished like the Beatles (Lennon was even dead by then).
So, yeah, the Stones for me--but not always and with some reservations.
