Album Review

Pieced together from outtakes and much-labored-over songs, Sticky Fingers manages to have a loose, ramshackle ambience that belies both its origins and the dark undercurrents of the songs. It's a weary, drug-laden album — well over half the songs explicitly mention drug use, while the others merely allude to it — that never fades away, but it barely keeps afloat. Apart from the classic opener, "Brown Sugar" (a gleeful tune about slavery, interracial sex, and lost virginity, not necessarily in that order), the long workout "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" and the mean-spirited "Bitch," Sticky Fingers is a slow, bluesy affair, with a few country touches thrown in for good measure. The laid-back tone of the album gives ample room for new lead guitarist Mick Taylor to stretch out, particularly on the extended coda of "Can't You Hear Me Knocking." But the key to the album isn't the instrumental interplay — although that is terrific — it's the utter weariness of the songs. "Wild Horses" is their first non-ironic stab at a country song, and it is a beautiful, heart-tugging masterpiece. Similarly, "I Got the Blues" is a ravished, late-night classic that ranks among their very best blues. "Sister Morphine" is a horrifying overdose tale, and "Moonlight Mile," with Paul Buckmaster's grandiose strings, is a perfect closure: sad, yearning, drug-addled, and beautiful. With its offhand mixture of decadence, roots music, and outright malevolence, Sticky Fingers set the tone for the rest of the decade for the Stones.

Customer Reviews

This LP ROCKS OUT LOUD!!!

Here's why you need the Super Deluxe version. They released some INCREDIBLE live stuff!! Look, we all know that this is among the Holy Grail Top 4 LPs the Stones ever released, but here and now, FINALLY, the band has seen fit to release the Brown Sugar from Keith's 1970 birthday party where Eric Clapton simply WAILS on slide guitar!! Were that not enough (and it is enough itself to make Stones' fans buy this), they are releasing the complete (finally!) March 13, 1971 Leeds show and then 5-6 trax from the Roundhouse show of the very next day! This is amazing and really what so many of us hardcore Stones' fans have been waiting. Get this and kick back with it, and head for the hills listening to the Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the world in its prime where it took no prisoners, took long chances, and ROCKED OUT LOUD!!

Get Your Leeds Lungs Out!!!

This live release on the complete Leeds show (with Jumpin' Jack Flash) along with this amazing Roundhouse show is an unbelievable addition to the recent trove of treasures the Stones are putting out. Can't wait until they put out "Welcome to New York" from the '72 tour!!!!

Sticky Fingers Getting Stickier Than Ever.

Finally STICKY FINGERS is getting much treatment it deserves: an EXTREME makeover.
No disrespect to EXILE ON MAIN ST. but I believe this album continued from where they left off from LET IT BLEED almost 2 years before. Their version of "Brown Sugar (featuring Eric Clapton)" is deemed to be the best version for these troubled times.

By the time the Rolling Stones began calling themselves the World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band in the late '60s, they had already staked out an impressive claim on the title. As the self-consciously dangerous alternative to the bouncy Merseybeat of the Beatles in the British Invasion, the Stones had pioneered the gritty, hard-driving blues-based rock & roll that came to define hard rock. With his preening machismo and latent maliciousness, Mick Jagger became the prototypical rock frontman, tempering...
