11 Songs, 42 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Propelled by the increasingly experimental musical explorations of guitarist Brian Jones, Aftermath is one of the Stones' vital turning points. The first album to consist entirely of Jagger/Richards originals, it redefines the boundaries of their beloved R&B. These songs are infused with arty arrangements and baroque psychedelia, yielding shadowy, slinky tracks like the delicately Elizabethan "Lady Jane" and the marimba-driven groove of "Under My Thumb.” Even the lone blues rave-up, "Goin’ Home," breaks boundaries as an unprecedented 11-minute studio jam.
