Beggars their best album? It's very good indeed but I don't think it stacks up with the 3 that follow. It does have Sympathy For the Devil, the Stones best song by a long shot. It has Street Fighting Man, Salt of The Earth, Stray Cat Blues, and No Expectations, which are all fucking awesome. Factory Girl and Jig Saw Puzzle are really cool too. But Dear Doctor, Parachute Woman, and Prodigal Son are not all that great. They're ok and all but really not up to par with any of the songs on Let It Bleed or Sticky Fingers. The other 3 big ones are just basically collections of great songs while Exile stands above them in that it is a perfect album. The flow between the songs, the mood, and the atmosphere it creates is like nothing else on any other recording.
