iTunes Review

Not quite all-out psychedelia, Between the Buttons was a significant step forward for the Stones. The album brought a touch of the Kinks' music-hall whimsy ("Blow!" Mick Jagger commands before a kazoo solo on "Cool, Calm and Collected") to the band's sneering critique of the British class system. At the same time, they hadn't put away the fuzz-tones, as evidenced by sharp rockers like "Miss Amanda Jones." Though it contained some of the Stones' poppiest music to date, Buttons is hardly just a lighthearted romp; the double-sided hit "Let's Spend the Night Together" and "Ruby Tuesday" is a further sign of their grown-up concerns. Compare and contrast this edition with the UK release, which drops the singles and retains several cuts that wound up on the American album Flowers.

Customer Reviews

Still the best Stones album ever...

The first album where the Stones weren't forced to include a bunch of cover tunes, Between the Buttons satisfies from beginning to end, with classic favorites like Ruby Tuesday and Let's Spend the Night Together, as well as eclectic rarities like She Smiled Sweetly and Who's Been Sleeping Here? An awesome album without a single bad or boring track.

This & Tattoo You the best!

10/10 for me. I love all of these songs. If your a first timer, go with spend the night together, ruby, she smiled sweetly, & connection first. Those are the best ones in my opinion. They can get you started well. But as an album it just flows the best of all the stones albums, this & tattoo you. I also really love yesterday papers & miss amanda jones, the latter is also probably a good one to sample if you're new to this album. Most people say the stones streak starts with beggars, but they forget this & flowers, which start it for me, (also could be because i enjoy majesties request which is between buttons & beggars, most people dont like all of that album.)

Their Best!

My favorite Stones album since the day it came out. Great songwriting, playing and singing.
I've always considered this to be their "English" album ala the Kinks at the time.
I know the track listing on the U.K. version was different, but this was a great album from start to finish in it's original U.S. release in '67.
Still one of those rare CD's that I can pull out and listen to from start to finish without hitting the skip button.
Again, Mick and Keith wrote all the songs, with Brian adding his musical flourishes throughout on some of the best songs they ever wrote.
A vastly under rated album.

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...
