Product Details

Product Description


Exilés fiscaux, pourchassés par toutes les brigades des stups du monde occidental, les Stones finissent par s'installer à la Jamaïque pour mettre en boîte Goat's Head Soup. Les cinq années précédentes, ils n'ont enregistré que des chefs d'oeuvre et sont un peu attendus au tournant. Keith Richards est trop occupé à tester toutes les spécialités illégales de l'île pour être efficace. Mick Jagger prend donc les affaires en main et décide d'enregistrer plusieurs ballades, dont le futur tube planétaire "Angie". Longtemps considéré comme un album moyen, Goat's Head Soup a bien passé l'épreuve du temps : c'est un grand disque malade et schizophrène, partagé entre riffs poisseux ("Doo Doo Doo Doo", "Dancing With Mr D.") et ballades poudreuses ("Coming Down Again", "Winter"). --Hubert Deshouse

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff, But They Ain't Tha strokes!! Sept. 25 2003
Format:Audio CD
Hey everyone, how are ya doin'?? Wow, this Rolling Stones band is pretty tight, I feel they have potential. Its clear they look up to the recent saviors of rock such as The Strokes, The Hivens, The Vines, The White Stripes, Limp Bizkit, Staind, and of course Linkin Park!! One thing they have going against them is their music is too dark and blues based, it can be depressing!! Cheer up fellas!! There are some nice heavy rockers like "Heartbreaker", "Silver Train" and the naughty "Star Star", and "Dancing With Mr. D." has a nice dark riff, but the lyrics really scare me, its about voodoo and thats evil and don't sit well with me personally!! There are some nice slower tunes like "Angie" and "Winter" but the solos in "100 Years Ago" and "Hide Your Love" are a tad too intense for me, Linkin Park can play better mellow stuff. "100 Years Ago" starts off interesting, but they jam too hard at the end. Anyway, Da Stones have potential, just lighten up a bit, play less solos, and get some guest rappers and DJ's and they'll be in the big tyme in no tyme!! Peace out!!

4.0 out of 5 stars The decade of the Stones May 21 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is pretty typical of the albums that the Stones put out in the 70's. Some great tunes, some hidden gems and filler thrown in on top. Great songs include "Angie" "Doo Doo Doo Doo Dooo (Heartbreaker)" and "Star Star". "Silver Train" and "Dancing With Mr. D" are great hidden gems while songs like "Can You Hear The Music" have appeared on other Stones albums...under different names. Like any album by the Stones, you'll find stuff you know and love, new stuff which you discover and grow to love and stuff that you won't be singing along to. This album is no different.

1.0 out of 5 stars WORST STONES ALBUM EVER.... April 27 2013
Format:Audio CD
I brought this home the day it appeared in the local record store.As a huge Rolling Stones fan,bought it in the belief that it would be as great as others of the period,that I still listen to and enjoy often to this day....Beggars Banquet,Let It Bleed,Exile et al....

I played it once,and gave it to a friend that was over checking it out in my listening room....What a dog....Then I got to relive the horror every time as those songs worked their way through the FM playlists of the day....Sadly the Stones have never been able to regain the heights they reached since.....

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Underrated Stones Album July 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
Goat's Head Soup was originally released Aug 31, 1973 and went to #1 in both the US and the UK. I have found it quite rewarding that over the years this one has gained respect and continues to appear in many rankings of greatest rock albums. Personally, I've always like this one a lot. It's got the usual megahits; Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker), Angie, and Star#$!@% (a hit as a single in Europe and Japan), an incredible jam in Hide Your Love, great intro in 100 Years Ago, part 2 of the voodoo chronicles in Dancing With Mr. D., solid rocker Silver Train, and oh yeah, Winter, Coming Down Again, and Can You Hear The Music too. Most people know the music, so in my reviews I try to give you data on the sessions and interesting facts connected with the songs and the album. Here we go:
There were 23 songs recorded during the Goat's Head Soup sessions between Nov 25-30 and Dec 6-21, 1972 at Dynamic Sound Studios in Kingston, Jamaica. Only 8 of them made it onto Goat's Head Soup. Keith had made strong connections with the Jamaican reggae musicians and had recently bought a house in Jamaica, so he was the driving force behind the sessions. The band included Mick Taylor, Nicky Hopkins (piano), Billy Preston (organ), Bobby Keys (sax), Chuck Finley (trumpet), Jim Horn (horn), and of course Ian Stewart on piano. Sonny Rollins played sax on Waiting On A Friend. Final mixes were done at Island Recording in London May 28 - Jun 20, 1973. Hide Your Love was recorded in separate sessions on May 23 & 26 at Olympic Studios in London. Silver Train was recorded during the mixing at Island in London.
Interesting notes include:
.....The UK version of the album had one verse censored and deleted from Star#$!

2.0 out of 5 stars Two very good songs but the rest is mediocre May 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is not under rated. The songs "Angie" and "Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (heartbreaker)" are very good indeed and might be a reason to get the album, but the rest of the material isn't anything to get excited about. Of course "Exile on main street" is a better buy than this one. It's not really bad or really good - it's more or less a decent or average Rolling Stones album that you can either have or lose.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated April 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
Okay, it's not one of the Stones' best, but 'Goats Head Soup' is still a fine rock album to own. The problem with is, I suppose, is that's it's not a very good album for hardcore Stones fans (just look at Angie; it's probably one of the worst Stones songs ever, yet it's one of the best love songs ever recorded), but it's not quite good enough to be a good purchase for a wider group of music lovers, like 'Exile On Main Street' or 'Sticky Fingers' Any way you look at it, though, 'Goats Head Soup' is a top notch rock n' roll album with some fantastic songs. Again, the problem is that it excels more in ballads than in upbeat songs - but the ballads aren't good enough to make it an all-around classic like 'Sticky Fingers'.
So, let's start by getting 'Angie' out of the way. By any standard, it truly is a timeless classic and a really beautiful song. Though it lacks the sarcasm and bitterness that add so much to classic Stones ballads like 'As Tears Go By' and 'Wild Horses', 'Angie' is probably one of the Stones' most timeless hits - though true Stones fans like to deny it. There's some great guitar work from Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood, as well as one of Mick Jagger's most fantastic vocal performances of his lifetime. 'Coming Down Again' is also a gorgeous classic soft ballad, while 'Hide Your Love' is harder and filled with blues influences. The best of the bunch is by far 'Can You Hear The Music' - hardly a ballad at all, but with a very different sound, with some interesting ethnical influences and great instrumental work on all parts.
But the album also has some classic Stones rockers. 'Dancing With Mr. D.' is vintage Stones, with Richards giving his trademark raunchy distorted sound, and it's a great rock tune with a great beat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as daring as Exile, but still very worthwhile
Goats Head Soup isn't as good as Exile on Main St., but really.. what IS? I personally think it's a fitting follow up to the power that Exile held. Read more

Her tired schtick is showing. Fewer album sales and can't even reach #1 anymore (unlike the Stones). Mick is famous for his lips, Janet tries to flash her lips in desperation. Read more
