: Just one question, one you may have asked yourself recently: what does Keno have against Exile? Sure he likes Happy, Tumbling Dice and Sweet Virginia, but what about the rest of this staggering achievement? I think it might be the lack of "classic" rock tunes, a murky, muddy blues-based style. I know Keno likes Hot Rocks, and Exile is the antithesis of the greatest hits theory - deep, obscure, historical. This is not intended as a put-down to Keno, who's site i like and appreciate, but perhaps he should give it another listen. it lacks the precision of beggars banquet and sticky fingers, but it is a joy in itself.
: for the sake of brevity i'll hold off praising Exile, but anyone who agrees with my opinion, please let me know what you think. "Rocks Off" - the most infectious four minutes ever? ("Brown Sugar" it's only rival.)
: Defend the masterworks, long and difficult as they may be. The unwieldy ones need our love.

Maybe Keno's just stuffy--he needs "some kind of ventilator, some kind of ventilator...."~~~~~~~~~~~Vacendak
