Le live de la réconciliation ! La tournée immortalisée par Flashpoint a fait suite à Steel Wheels, le disque des retrouvailles pour Mick Jagger et Keith Richards. Ce sont donc des Stones ragaillardis que l'on entend ici et qui, pour l'occasion, sont allés dégotter quelques bonnes vieilleries dont certaines ne figuraient sur aucun live, comme "Factory Girl" ou "Ruby Tuesday". Mais ce ne sont pas là les seules surprises : il faut ajouter la présence exceptionnelle d'Eric Clapton sur le standard blues "Little Red Rooster" et surtout l'addition de deux morceaux enregistrés en studio : "Sex Drive", sous l'influence de James Brown et "Highwire" aux guitares violentes, véritable diatribe contre la guerre du Golfe. --Hubert Deshouse

After getting back on the right track with "Steel Wheels", The Rolling Stones embarked on their first concert tour in 7 years, and what a tour. The band was playing better than they had in a long time, and just about every show was a completely sold out. The result of that tour was an Imax film and this live album.
"Flashpoint" is very fun and energetic. It start off with the brief "Continental Drift" before leaping out of the starting gate with "Start Me Up". The album loses its balance a bit with the clunker "Sad Sad Sad", but it comes roaring back to life with a high - octane "Miss You". "Rock And A Hard Place" is in your face and "Ruby Tuesday" is revived here, with pure beauty conveyed in the instruments and vocals. "You Can't Always Get What You Want" comes off flawlessly, especially at the end with Kieth's signature speed guitar. "Factory Girl" was a real surprise, especially for hardcore fans. A great track from "Beggars' Banquet" that was never heard in concert before. "Little Red Rooster" features a great Eric Clapton solo. What comes next is a glorious selection of hits that starts off with a stupendous "Paint It Black". "Sympathy For The Devil" edits out a whole verse, but stays afloat thanks to Kieth. The version of "Brown Sugar" is probably the best live version of the song ever. "Jumpin' Jack Flash" comes next, and again, it's probably the best live version ever. The same can be said for "Satisfaction", which, as usual, sounds great.
Two studio recordings round out the album. "High Energy" deals with war and ommunism, while "Sex Drive" is a libidinous and ultimately ludicrous dance number that soudnds vaguely like "Emotional Rescue's" "Dance, Part One". Overall, "Flashpoint" is a brilliant album. It is very enjoyable.

LET ME START BY SAYING THAT THE ROLLING STONES, TO ME ARE THE GREATEST ROCK 'N' ROLL BAND IN THE WORLD! WHO CARES WHAT MY FRIENDS THINK ABOUT IT.
I SAW THE ROLLING STONES "LIVE AT THE MAZ" FILM AND IT WAS GREAT. I DID NOT GET THE REAL GOOD PICTURE BECAUSE I DIDN'T SEE IT IN THE IMAX THEATRE, I SAW IT ON VIDEO.
WHEN I SAW "FLSHPOINT" IN THE STORE AND I READ THAT IT WAS FROM THE
89-90 STEEL WHEELS TOUR I HAD TO HAVE IT.
I LOVE IT!
IT WAS MY 3RD LIVE STONES ALBUM (MY FISRT WAS "GET YER YA'YA'S OUT!" AND THE OTHER WAS "Got LIVE If You Want It!"

This album documents the Rolling Stones' 1989-1990 world tour supporting the "Steel Wheels" album, from which several songs are drawn ("Sad, Sad, Sad", "Rock And A Hard Place", "Can't Be Seen").
Actually, considering the Rolling Stones' latter-day habit of releasing a live album for every couple of studio albums, it would have been nice to have a couple more song from "Steel Wheels" on here, like "Almost Hear You Sigh" and "Mixed Emotions".
But what is here can't really be faulted. The sound is excellent, and although some might miss songs like "Honky Tonk Women", "Let It Bleed" or whichever other classic is your personal favorite, I think the track list works rather well, actually, mixing older and newer material (and besides, the Stones have put out so many live albums...they can't put all of their best-known songs on each one. There would be no room for newer songs at all).
The sound is excellent, and even though "Flashpoint" doesn't really offer anything new or particularly different, it's a good, solid live album, highlighted by a rocking "Start Me Up", Keith Richards' hoarse, bluesy lead vocals on "Can't Be Seen", a sneering "Paint It Black" and a grand rendition of the Stones' diabolic aren't-we-evil-tune, "Sympathy For The Devil".

At last, The Rolling Stones return to the everlasting glory of "Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out". "Love You Live" was a great album, but the band played to sloppy and Mick's voice was almost inaudible. "Still Life" was also pretty good, but you couldn't compare to it the earlier releases. But with "Flashpoint", The Stones return to the glory days of "Ya-Ya's".
On their energetic performances of songs like "Start Me Up", "Sad, Sad, Sad" and "Rock And A Hard Place", the band rocks harder than they had in a long time, and their playing sounds very neat and skillful. On "Ruby Tueday" and "Factory Girl", the band lets their acoustic side show, and they perform both songs in a gentle and delicate matter that is quiet yet powerful. "Paint It Black" is revived here, and it is performed in a dark and delicate matter carried by Mick's scolding lead vocal. On "Miss You" and "Jumpin' Jack Flash", the band is vibrant and energetic. The band also delivers hardrockin' performances of "Brown Sugar" and "Satisfaction", both of which are featured in the best recorded versions of either song. The band dips back into their early days with a scorching "Little Red Rooster" that is punctuated by Eric Clapton's fiery lead guitar. The band also does a blazing "You Can't Always Get What You Want". "Flashpoint" is a musical timebomb waiting to explode. This is solid Stones live.
