This disc captures the Stones in obvious conflict, however, it is an accurate relic of that time period in the group's history. Musically it beams more lead guitar with Jimmy Page among others guesting in the sessions. "One Hit (To The Body)" is a cranker and "Hold Back" sports an aggressive and infectious rhythm section. The title track rocks out and "Sleep Tonight" evokes a tender Richards ballad that just keeps growing on me. The Stones sound angry and that, I am convinced, was a motivator; "Fight" being a case in point. "Harlem Shuffle" is a typical Stones swaggering and danceable single. "Too Rude" finds Richards in familiar reggae-influenced territory. For what it is worth, Ron Wood shares 4 of the songwriting credits!
Overall, I find that this disc stands out among other Stones material because it evokes memories of a difficult period of the band. Somehow, with it all, it renders complete from beginning to end. Wouldn't it be a treat to have the band cover some of this material live?!
