: : Overrated song? Gimme Shelter. I very much like this song. It makes my top forty Stones song list (35). But it seems that most Stones fans like this song the best if you go by our on going song poll. Not me. Yes its a good song, but IMO, overrated.
: As one of your lesser sophisticated Stones fans (esp. compared to all you people!) I am unqualified to name a "most overrated album". But, I do have to say that "Gimme Shelter" will always be THAT SONG - with the intro that just sends me, that causes me to turn the car stereo up full blast, and ultimately compels me to scream "rape...murder..." at the top of my lungs, scaring little old ladies in the cars next to me.
Very true, indeed. When that intro comes on the radio, me gets big Kool-Aid grin.
I think all the well-received albums deserve the praise, really. I guess I'd say Voodoo Lounge, though I think 3/4 of it's biggest supporters reside on this board. Most critics aren't all that enthralled with it.
