The Rolling Stones Album Reviews
It’s widely acknowledged that The Rolling Stones hit their peak between 1968 and 1972 – right now I’m covering those albums, and a few later highlights, as my Top Rated Albums list feels incomplete without them. I’ll come back and cover their 1965-1967 albums later; there are a few that I’ve only recently become acquainted with. I’m also considering filling up the gaps up to 1981, although the albums I’ve skipped generally have a poor reputation.
While the Mick Jagger and Keith Richards team is obviously the nucleus of The Rolling Stones, the band also benefited from the production of Jimmy Miller, and the skills of lead guitarist Mick Taylor, who replaced Brian Jones around the time that 1969’s Let It Bleed was recorded. To some extent The Rolling Stones’ have become caricatures of themselves, but like most celebrated bands, they earned their reputation, and their run of albums between 1968 and 1972 is magnificent.
