The Rolling Stones have put out numerous live albums - they'll soon reach double-digit figures, actually, something which only Deep Purple have done before.
And none of them are bad. A few, like "Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out" are even great, but "Still Life" is merely pretty good.
The sound is somewhat thin and one-dimentional, especially the drums, and the CD is quite short at only forty minutes.
There are some good performances, though...the track list draws heavily from the Stones' 60s releases with songs like "Satisfaction", "Let's Spend The Night Together", "Time Is On My Side" and the catchy "Under My Thumb".
A couple of generic rock n' roll tunes, "Going To A Go-Go" and "Twenty Flight Rock", are also included. I would have preferred some good, solid live renditions of the best material from the Stones' then-current album "Tattoo You", but maybe that's just me.
"Still Life" could have been better, but it's not a bad album. It's just not particularly original or exciting either.
