In Reply to: "Tumbling Dice" and a test as to what kind of Stones fan you are... posted by Mr. D on September 13, 2000 at 17:19:12:
: I know we're all fans here, so I thought it might be fun to see something. The song "Tumbling Dice", in my opinion, is what the Stones were put on this earth to do. It is best representative of The Stones as a band. It is rich, layered, catchy, bluesy with hints of gospel, full of great lyrics and singing, a little Chuck-Berry riff here and there for good measure, some teriffic interplay between Keef and the great Mick Taylor and a fabulous back-beat by Mr. Watts. It is very arguably their best song on what is almost un-arguably their best album. I would like to know who out there sees this song as definitive, who sees this song as good and who could take it or leave it. Give it a listen if you want before you respond. I think the results will shed a lot of light onto what kind of fan you are...
Love Tumbling Dice and but it's not my favorite on Exile, although I think it is probably the best. I don't think it's the best of all time. Sympathy, Rambler, Paint It Black, Gimme Shelter and a few others are probably better but it's real friggin great.
