: I agree, and basically put exile on a par with Voodoo Lounge and Some Girls as their two second-tier albums. The first tier would be Beggars, Let It Bleed, and--at the top of the all-time list--Sticky Fingers. Tattoo You I would put as a third-tier record, probably with Steel Wheels. Then after than it gets harder to say.
I don't know God, I feel pretty strongly that From LIB thru SF is truely the greatest stretch of Rock music ever put out. The problem with that is that they raised the bar so high, they can't get back to that level again. They put out some decent records after Sticky Fingers, but none have come close to that magical four album stretch. They never will, and I don't think anybody else will. At least not while I'm alive.
