: : In fact, up until ER, the Stones had released nothing but excellent albums for over 10 years (LYL doesn't count).

: : Actually I'm not too wild about IORR. Black & Blue isn't that great either.

: They're not as good as Exile and Sticky Fingers, that's for sure. But though they are not great records, they are - in my veiw - very good ones. Both have two or three strong rockers, some exellent ballads, and only a couple of clunkers. I think if the Stones released IORR today, it would be acclaimed as a miracle comeback record. There is a far greater drop (more like a plummet) in quality from IORR to ER than from VL to B2B.

Any album with a song like Crazy Mama automatically shoots up about 50%.
