:Think of Black and Blue as Exile with better sound quality and 10 fewer tracks..
Are you fucking high? I like Black And Blue, but it is in no way even close to Exile. Crazy Mama just grates on me like nothing they've ever done. But I really like Melody, Hey Negrita, Hand of Fate, Hot Stuff (if disco woulda been like Hot Stuff, I'd wore a white suit!) and Memory Motel (live it doesn't do much for me anymore - it was cool in 94, but I'd rather hear something else after hearing that once).
Exile has so much more of what I love the Stones for. Rocks Off, All Down The Line, Tumbling Dice (Tumbling Dice is on Exile. Tumbling DICE, man!)
I mean, there you can go on and on.
Black and Blue is good, but Exile is a defining moment in music history.
