The ninth album from The Rolling Stones’ was there first one of the 1970s to be released. It’s the first album that Mick Jagger was also given notice for playing the guitar on. The album currently resides on number 63 on Rolling Stones’ 500 Greatest Albums of All Time List. Sticky Fingers received favorable to positive reviews at the time of it’s release in 1971. Many people have been suggested to be the men featured in the picture, but it’s never been revealed officially. One of the people suggested was Andy Warhol’s boyfriend’s brother.
This isn’t one of my favorites I’ve heard from The Rolling Stones, but it isn’t one of the worst either. There are some catchy tunes like “Brown Sugar”, but the rest varied as far as keeping my interest. I don’t even get the comparison to the Flamin’ Groovies record, “Teenage Head”, because they didn’t seem similar enough to me to make that connection. I didn’t find the inclusion of the brass to be interesting on this album though. It almost made it seem ska like at times.
Rating 3 of 5.
