Exile On Main Street Re-released

“It’s a bit overrated, to be honest. I’m not saying it’s not good. Compared to ‘Let It Bleed’ and ‘Beggars Banquet,’ which I think are more of a piece, I don’t see it’s as thematic as the other two. It’s got a raw quality, but I don’t think all around it’s as good.’’

— Mick Jagger interview, Rolling Stone, Dec. 14, 1995

My top 5 favorite Stones Albums:

1. Beggars Banquet
2. Aftermath [UK]
3. Sticky Fingers
4. Let it Bleed
5. Tattoo You

Tattoo You was the first Stones album that I owned. It has sentimental value.

Exile on Main Street would definitely make the second 5, along with Goat's Head Soup, Between the Buttons, Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out and The Rolling Stones, Now!
