I've been revisiting their middle period of late. I do this about once a year, and I'm always amazed at what they were able to do between about 1968 and 1973. I've even discovered a new love for things I'd neglected in the past, like Goats Head Soup.

Well, I don't like the present-day Stones. But man, that late 60s/early 70s period of theirs... They were great, once upon a time.

Well, they're an acquired taste, I'm sure. Even back in their day, many people hated them.

I won't hold it against you.

Rolling Stones? Ah, it's no longer a rock&roll band! Come on, should a "rock&roll" band give best places on their big concerts to American Express owners? Or sell their album on an USB Key format for 40€ ($40) ?

I agree. I'm only a fan of the old Rolling Stones, not the present day Rolling Bones.

RS' Between the Buttons is genuinely quirky, unlike Modest Mouse, which is quirky & herky-jerky because they just are awful in just about every respect.

& one other thing
People that compare MM to Pavement are fucking bonkers.

Senator, I served with Jack Kennedy, I knew Jack Kennedy, Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you are no Jack Kennedy.

At least when I'm listening to the Stones, I'm acting age appropriate. Isn't that what all us geezer boomers are supposed to listen to? (To be precise, I was born on the end cusp of the boomer years. I'm more like a zoomer. Boomers are 60s kids, I'm a 70s kid, more or less.)

Me, too. They haven't been very graceful about exiting the stage. That should have happened right after Some Girls, I think.

They're pretty lame, it's true. I think I remember even thinking their 1978 tour sucked. They'd lost any spark they once had by then. The last "art" album they made was Goats Head, and the rest is Doobie Brothers quality--competent but no soul.
