Although notoriously difficult to license, the Rolling Stones release what may be considered their definitive "best of" collection, 40 Licks. Disc one focuses (with the exception of Sticky Fingers' "Wild Horses") on the golden period, from their formation in 1962 to 1970. Although not in chronological order, it includes every phase of the decade--the early covers like "Not Fade Away"; the all-conquering classics like "Satisfaction" and "Get off My Cloud"; the often overlooked psychedelic Satanic Majesties period represented here by "She's a Rainbow"; and when they really found their own sound, the Let it Bleed era with the likes of "Gimme Shelter" and "Jumpin' Jack Flash". If disc one covers the first eight years, then disc two covers the next 32--the stadium years. With an audience on a ludicrously grand scale, the Stones fell into a pattern of anthemic blues-rock, such as "Tumbling Dice", "Brown Sugar" and "It's Only Rock 'n' Roll". Next there were the odd experiments to keep up with the youngsters, such as the disco-influenced "Miss You", which, like Rod Stewart's "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy", was inspired, but thankfully a one off. And so onto the bleak period, after the stadium filler "Start Me Up", they fell on a rough patch that would last pretty much until Voodoo Lounge in the 1990s, a fantastic return to form, with several more songs that could have been worthy for this "best of" but were sadly not chosen in favour of "Love is Strong" and "You Got Me Rocking". Including four new songs produced by the same guy who did their last two albums, this really is the full story-so-far covering 40 years of the world's most famous rock & roll band. --David Trueman
This is an excellent compilation of most of the Stones best hits. Some of the tunes are "B" tunes, but the majority are worth the purchase of this CD. Read morePublished 16 days ago by Bing Haley

This cd would not work in our new car's cd player. Works fine on older computer, maybe its format is for older players? Maybe I got a dud? Price was good though.Published on Sept. 6 2012 by jon M
No home should be without some Rolling Stones music. If you still don't have some, then "40 Licks" is a very very nice way to start your collection !Published on March 7 2011 by MaxWax
