: : : meant to be for angel, not Mr. V
: : No problem, LV.
: : I think I started a post on this same topic a while back, and the object was not to criticize Keno in any way. I just hoped that the resulting dialog would open some new avenues of thought on Exile and other Stones works. I thought if I could truly understand why Keno is lukewarm on Exile, I would understand the universe a little better than I did before.
: : Which happened. After thinking about Keno's comments about Exile, I wound up reconsidering Goat's Head Soup. As a result, I don't like Exile any less, but I like Goat's Head Soup a bit more.
: : Thanks Keno.
: I totally dig Goats Head, but I really have to be in a stones mood to listen to the whole thing.
: My two favorites are "100 years ago", which I really love and "can you hear the music". That song is just totally out there. It has my favorite sounding chorus ever. It just grabs me.
I love "100 years ago". I also think "Hide Your Love" is a hidden gem of a song. My question is why the record was so almost univerally reviled for so many years. Most critics have dismissed it as nothing short of awful.
All the more credit to Keno for sticking up for this vastly underrated record.
