Product Description

Amazon.ca

Un disque composite comme les Stones en firent quelques-uns pendant la première moitié des années quatre-vingt. Jagger tire le groupe du côté de l'exotisme ("Indian Girl", aux cuivres mariachi arrangés par Jack Nitzsche) et cible les pistes de danse ("Dance" ou "Emotional Rescue", avec son falsetto de légende). De leur côté, Keith Richards et Ron Wood croisent les guitares à l'infini sur des rocks nerveux, parfois anecdotiques ("Summer Romance", "Let Me Go"), parfois réussis ("She's So Cold" et le presque reggae "Send It To Me"). Le disque se clôt de belle façon sur "All About You", la traditionnelle ballade de Keith Richards qui, pour cause de séparation amoureuse, atteint de vrais sommets d'émotion. --Hubert Deshouse

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Their Best July 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
While not their worst album ("Dirty Work" takes that honor), "Emotional Rescue" ranks as The Rolling Stones' most inconsistent and overall weakest effort since "Black And Blue". This is due partly to the fact that many of the songs are weak and the tensions brewing between Mick and Keith at the time took a toll on their creative skills. It's a shame that this album had to follow up their masterpiece "Some Girls", the last great album they ever recorded.
"Emotional Rescue" does, however, have a number of highlights. "She's So Cold" is a great rocker in league with "Start Me Up" and "Brown Sugar". "Let Me Go" is a nice country - style number that was one of the few highlights of their 1981 tour. The funk - laden title track (Billboard # 3) is a great dance song, as good as "Miss You". Finally, there's the Keith - sung ballad "All About You", which ranks as his best love song and second - best song overall (after "Happy").
On the downside, there's a number of low points. "Indian Girl" can draw you in with enough listens, but is lyrically and musically bizarre. "Dance (Pt. 1)" may be the worst song they ever did, and thankfully the second part was never released. "Summer Romance" and "Where The Boys Go" are bombastic, while "Send It To Me" and "Down In The Hole" are horrible reggae attempts.
Overall, not their best efforts. Some songs shine above the rest, but this is not top notch level Stones material.

After the monsterous success of "Some Girls", The Rolling Stones decided to record their next album at Pathe - Marconi Studios in france, where their previous album had been recorded. Unfortunately, the results were not the same as before. The songs featured on the album were an erratic mix of originals and songs from sessions dating back to "Black And Blue". The album was "Emotional Rescue".
"Emotional Rescue" kicks off with "Dance, Pt. 1". I guess the band figured that after the sucess of "Miss You" that they could hit it big again with another dance track. Sadly, the results are not the same. "Summer Romance" fairs better with its return to the rockier sound there known for. "Send It To Me" is a bland foray into reggae, while "Let Me Go" is a country - style rocker that somehow works. Next is "Indian Girl", and it is one of the strangest things the band ever did, if not the strangest. With its mariachi rhythm and pleading Mick vocal, the song has potential but gets lost in the muck and myer of production overkill. "Where The Boys Go" is another wacky number, especially with the freaky girl chorus on the tag. "Down In The Hole" is weird blues song. Fortuneately, the album closes with a hat track of excellent songs. The title track was big hit for the band, and why not? Its funky melody is irresistible, and Mick's falsetto is to die for. And who can forget that weird spoken part at the end. "She's So Cold" was the album's other hit. It has great guitar interplay between Keith and Ronnie, not to mention a great Mick vocal. Finally, there's the closer.

3.0 out of 5 stars MORE LIKE 3.5 STARS April 15 2003
Format:Audio CD
Why this album is so maligned among Stones fans will forever baffle me. Maybe because it was the follow-up to Some Girls and some feel it pales in comparison? Maybe because there happens to be no major statements from the authors of "Gimme Shelter", "Street Fighting Man", "Wild Horses" (and plenty of others)? Because they feel there's a surplus of filler?
These are valid arguments, but what it overlooks is that this is the sound of the Stones simply enjoying themselves. It's worth noting that during this period not only were the Stones enjoying the fruits of their commerical and artistic triumph with Some Girls, but also that both Mick and Keith had new love interests in their lives, and Keith was a free man, having recently gotten off his Canadian charges for possession of heroin with intent to traffic.
So why not have some fun? From the first moments, "Dance" presents itself as a groove. Then Mick and Keith actually have a discussion over the track, evetually Mick getting to proclaiming "Get up, get out, get into something new". No, it's not "You Can't Always Get What you Want"...but who said it has to be? A lyric like "When I touched her, my hand just froze" from "She's So Cold" may not be "My name is called Disturbance/I'll shout and scream, I'll kill the king, and rail at his servants", but so what? It's still a killer tune.
Throughout the album, the funny, goofy, New Wave-influenced songs work best. "Send It To Me", "Let Me Go", "She's So Cold", the title track. When Mick's sense of humor is on - the goofy spoken section of the title track, the reggae-influenced laundry list of types of women Mick would like to meet (including "ukranian, albanian, even alien") - the album is absolutely engaging, charming, and absorbing.

3.0 out of 5 stars This Album Doesn't get Enough Credit? Come On...
I consider myself a huge Stones fan and I purchased this LP when it first came out in 1980. I was dissapointed then and I still think it is a somewhat weak album from the Stones. Read more

Released between Some Girls (1978) and Tattoo You (1981), which are some of the best ROlling Stones records ever, Emotional Rescue (1980) was never given much credit. Read more
