iTunes Review

Galvanized by their favorite American records, The Rolling Stones ripped the top off rock attitude on 1969’s Let It Bleed. With its ominous, patterned intro, “Gimme Shelter” heralds a whole new genre: apocalyptic soul-blues. “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” is a luminous gospel-soul finale that’s balanced by “Country Honk” and “You Got the Silver,” a pair of scruffy acoustic jams. For all its grandeur, the album’s lifeblood is its pungent, snakelike grooves: “Midnight Rambler,” “Live With Me,” and the churning, lascivious title track.

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...
