Like Goat's Head, I've grown to like it more over time. However, don't go overboard. The lyrics are pretty weak and silly. The "black n blue" battering thing was not cool. The album cover was the worst (next to the androgyous Angie/Mick-wearing-a -bonnet thing or whatever on GHS).
I think on1y Stones fans can appreciate it. Most people I knew at the time thought it sounded a little light in the loafers for the Stones. All that sha la la la, Daddy you're a fool and Hot Stuff!! stuff.
Musically, though, you're right. There's a lot of variety and color (if sound can have a color). But you could be crucified hear for suggesting that the Stones should experiment with their sound or (God forbid) bring in other musicians!!!
