Format:Audio CD
Don't get me wrong, the music on this CD is superb (hence the 5 star rating) but when The Rolling Stones and Andrew Loog
Oldham (producer) made these recordings from December 1965-March 1966 and sequenced it for release, THIS is not how they envisioned it. Their authorized version was issued in England on April 15, 1966 with "Paint It, Black" as their current single (issued May 13th) SEPERATE from the album (common UK practice at the time). In North America, it was shoehorned onto AFTERMATH and in its place, "Mother's Little Helper" was knocked off and put onto the loose ends US-compiled FLOWERS album in mid-1967. In addition, "Out Of Time", "Take It Or Leave It" & "What To Do" were also taken off, reducing what was a 14-song album to a mere 11. Buy the UK version. It's what the band intended, and besides, you can hear "Paint It, Black" on FORTY LICKS, HOT ROCKS, THROUGH THE PAST, DARKLY & THE SINGLES COLLECTION. And chances are that you'd already have one of those above mentioned hits collections if you're shopping for their proper studio albums. Hope this helps. :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars THE STONES ARE COMING INTO THEIR OWN Feb. 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
Aftermath is one of my favorite Rolling Stones albums. It was a landmark album for the band as it was the first Rolling Stones album to consist of all original Jagger/Richards material. The days of doing cover versions of other artist's songs were slowing down as the band was beginning to develop their own style and sound. With original hits over the previous 15 months, such as "Heart Of Stone," "The Last Time," "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," and "Get Off Of My Cloud," Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were developing into a very strong songwriting team. Besides Mick and Keith coming into their own as songwriters, Brian Jones was beginning to show his versatility as a musician as he played several differernt instruments: Indian sitar on "Paint It Black," marimbas (African xylophone) on "Under My Thumb," and mountain dulcimer on "Lady Jane," "I Am Waiting," as well as harmonica "High And Dry," "Goin' Home," and guitar and keyboards. The album also contains the 11-minute blues jam "Goin' Home," "Doncha' Bother Me," and the hilarious "Stupid Girl". The album was immediately praised as one of their best albums and has remained a fan favorite from the Brian Jones era. The album has some great pop tunes on it. However, the album does have some songs which don't do much for me like "Think," "It's Not Easy," and "Flight 505". Don't just judge the Rolling Stones by their radio hits, some of their studio albums have a lot of hidden gems, and this is one of them. The sound has been greatly improved for SACD as part of ABKCO Records "Rolling Stones Remastered Series". I highly recommend this album.
HISTORICAL REFERENCE
The album peaked at #2 on the US charts. The Aftermath sessions also produced the hit singles "19th Nervous Breakdown," "Mother's Little Helper," and "Paint It Black" in the US.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aftermath: Stones Apocalypse Jan. 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
By 1966, The Rolling Stones had already been recognized as the indispensable figureheads of cool; they were salacious, arrogant, irreverent, and genuinely gifted musicians. Their innate talent for pumping out addictive singles took them to the top. And with the right they had earned, they took their influences from wherever they wanted, and did with it what they felt.
This album is the Stones' zenith of innovation; swinging London genius sleaze with poppy, yet raucous R&B, and feverish delivery, set in a harsh, but sometimes delicate background of lust, boredom, and excess.
The album begins with Paint It Black; a good taste of the classic dark edge the Stones would come to use more heavily on later albums, and what would eventually become their psuedo-demonic trademark. The song incorporates a mesmeric sitar, played by the remarkably talented Brian Jones, and charges on with a hazily delayed, but insistant drum beat, while Jagger spouts his troubled accounts of his "darkness".
"Stupid Girl", is a lightly masoginistic anthem directed towards a girl, and it is rather playful, but done with such searing contempt that is causes the listner to shudder at the thought of the receiving end.
The album slows its churn, with the impossibly beautiful Lady Jane. An archaic ode to a love, or many loves, perfected with the use of a harpsichord, and a dulcimer, both of which are played skillfully by Brian Jones, making for a dreamily fragile and haunting piece.
Somehow this easily slips into the masculine Under My Thumb, another teasing number; with slick and bitter Jagger lyrcis & delivery, and a marimba to soften it's edges, along with a languid guitar.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lesser than the UK version Oct. 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Aftermath" is the first Stones album of 100% original material, and that's interesting, but not necessarily a good thing.
Many of these songs are great, but there are a number of lesser tunes here as well, and a few good soul or R&B covers could have replaced a couple of the "filler" songs and made this an even stronger album.
But "Aftermath" is still a more than worthy addition to anyone's Stones collection. Most of the lesser-known originals on "Aftermath", such as "Flight 505", "High And Dry", "Think", and "Going Home" (before it evolves into a long, tedious, psychedelic jam) are very enjoyable, even if they aren't as instantly memorable as "Satisfaction" or "Honky Tonk Women".
Remember, though, that the UK version of "Aftermath" runs more than ten minutes longer than its American counterpart, despite not having "Paint It Black" on it (singles were usually kept separate from LPs in England in those days). And it has four songs which aren't on this version, and should be preferred.

3.0 out of 5 stars Inferior to the 14-track UK version - save your money
It's a pity that the Stones CDs weren't released like the Beatles' ones, that is in their original British incarnations with 14 songs per album, not as 11-track rip-offs. Read more
