Product Description

Japanese only SHM-SACD pressing. Universal. 2011.

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

Indeed! But after Beggar's Banquet, Let It Bleed, Ya-Ya's, Sticky Fingers, and Exile...what the **** COULD they do to follow all THAT up? Well, despite all the naysayers, this is a FINE, fine piece of music, and, yeah, I am prejudiced, because Mick Taylor and Bill Wyman were still members and Ian Stewart was still there. OK, that being said, let's look at some of the songs: I gotta admit, I was a mite...leary of the first track, "Dancing With Mr. D," because I said, "Uh-oh, Anita's got Keef into this satan **** too heavily." And, OF course, Keef, played right INTO that accusation by playing one of the most stink-finger guitar intros ever to open the album. It wasn't until some years later that I was...enlightened to the fact that the whole album was a sort of "in joke" about Mick fooling around with Angela, David Bowie's wife. I mean, dig: what's the big hit of the album? Yup, "Angie." Musically now, "Dancing" has an amazing bass line, and I can't ascertain whether it's Bill Wyman or Mick Taylor playing it. Keef's obviously not on the next track, "100 Years Ago," but, for once, despite his absence, it's a great track. Billy Preston was - and still IS - a magnificant keyboard player. Keef, however, DOES show up on the next song, "Comin' Down Again" - fact is, he sings one of his all too rare lead vocals on it. "Heartbreaker/Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo" is a STOMPER, with some rather grim lyrics about overdosing. About ten years later, Bryan Adams would rip the chord progression off for "Take Me Back," which was about the best thing HE ever did. (check it out!) "Angie" was beautiful, yeah - and it made a GREAT video with Keef about to fall over his guitar! Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars *** Nov. 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Goats Head Soup" doesn't reach the same heights as it predecessor, the magnificent "Exile On Main Street", but it is a pretty good album in its own right, and a good purchase for serious Stones fans, even if some of the songs aren't particularly memorable.
It opens with the self-conscious my-aren't-we-bad-tune "Dancing With Mr D." (the gentleman in question being the devil), followed by the solid, folkish "100 Years Ago" and the slow, slightly eerie "Coming Down Again" ("I really like the [songs] I did when I was on smack", Keith Richards once said. "I wouldn't have written Coming Down Again without that".)
One of the best songs on "Goats Head Soup" is undoubtedly the acoustic ballad "Angie", but the slide guitar-driven "Silver Train" rocks very well also, and "Hide Your Love" is a good, swinging blues tune.
The slower, slightly, eh, alternative tunes like "Can you Hear The Music" and "Coming Down Again" may not appeal to everybody, but fortunately "Goats Head Soup" closes with one of the Stones' best, toughest rockers.
It hasn't gotten a lot of publicity, and even less airplay, but "Star Star" (as it was prudently re-titled on the cover) grooves with a vengeance, opening with a Chuck Berry-esque riff, and culminating with the supremely catchy chorus. Not everybody may be inclined to sing along (the song's actual title is "Starf***er"), but it certainly rocks with its own mean vulgarity.
And, honestly, who doesn't love mean vulgarity? Eh?

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. Read more

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
