Product Description

Product Description

We liked it, all right-#1 in 1974!


Enregistré à Munich, It's Only Rock'n'Roll évoque plus les grandes cités du Nord des Etats-Unis que la fête de la bière. Cet album déborde d'énergie. "Ain't Too Proud To Beg", reprise des Temptations, est plus chaude qu'un soir d'été à Detroit. "Fingerprint File", long brûlot funk, tapine sur Time Square, la wah-wah en avant. "Short And Curlies", avec Ian Stewart au piano, a tout d'une descente dans un bouge de Chicago... Après les errances de Goat's Head Soup, les Stones en reviennent à ce qu'ils font le mieux, un rock plutôt basique influencé par toutes les musiques noires. Vous connaissez la formule, elle est passée dans le langage courant : "Ce n'est que du rock'n'roll, mais on aime ça". --Hubert Deshouse

4.0 out of 5 stars good album with some missteps April 24 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
First things first. To start with, there are three songs that do not belong here. "Time Waits For No One" (which drags on WAY too long, despite a fine guitar solo from Mick Taylor), "Short And Curlies" (a throwaway), and an anemic cover of "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" that simply cannot hold a candle to the Temptations' original.
Having said that, what remains is primo Stones indeed. The opening track, "If You Can't Rock Me" kicks things off with swagger and style. "Till The Next Goodbye" and "If You Really Want To Be My Friend" are two of their finest ballads. The title track, despite years of heavy airplay, still holds up well and remains one of the greatest descriptions of the performing life. "Luxury" is (along with "Hot Stuff") their best stab at reggae (and good to hear the full five-minute version; the original vinyl chopped off 30 seconds due to time constraints). "Dance Little Sister" is one of their nastiest, greasiest rockers and ranks with classics such as "Brown Sugar" and "Jumpin' Jack Flash". And just to prove the veteran rockers still had a few tricks up their sleeves, they proceed to invent white funk with "Fingerprint File", a full three years before the Talking Heads. While this album is not quite the masterpiece of an Exile or Beggars or Sticky Fingers it's still a worthy addition to your Stones collection. In fact, I'm playing it right now....

4.0 out of 5 stars I kinda like it too... Sept. 4 2003
Format:Audio CD
The title track off 1974's "It's only Rock 'N Roll" may be the only real classic that this album has produced, but it's far from being the only good song here, and even the "filler" is quite agreeable.
The title song is one of rock's true classics...excellent guitar playing from both Keith Richards and Mick Taylor, and a supremely catchy chorus.
"Dance Little Sister", "If You Can't Rock Me" and "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" are tough and sinewy. "Time Waits For No One" and "If Your Really Want To Be My Friend" are two great rock ballads. "Luxury" is a fine, swinging, Calypso-tinged (!) tune, and the catchy, good-natured boogie of "Short And Curlies" is great fun.
"It's Only Rock 'N Roll" is, in my never appropriately humble opinion, one of the most well-arranged Stones records...it's not overproduced, sticking to a basic, yet muscular sound with lots of great guitar playing, and Nicky Hopkins and Ian Stewart add some excellent piano parts.
Definitely one of the better Stones albums...not quite on par with "Exile" or "Sticky Fingers", but "It's Only Rock 'N Roll" is certainly worth your while.

By the early seventies the Rolling Stones had gotten plenty of Satisfaction, and were already looking around for the next big thing. They paid tribute to Motown, toyed with country and western music, and even took the briefest of flings into jazz, but couldn't find anything that really suited their talents and tastes. And that's pretty much the picture we get with this, their 1974 release.
There are some good songs here, and even a few classics (the title track, the haunting "Time Waits for No One", and the deliciously funky "Fingerprint File") but the overall quality is somewhat off. The cover of "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" is okay, but nothing really special. "If You Can't Rock Me" and "Luxury" are both good enough songs that just don't quite seem to have enough punch, like they're being played under water (or possibly under the influence). The band is far more effective on "Dance Little Sister", which would be a real knockout if it wasn't quite so... well, dumb. "If You Really Want To Be My Friend" is the only total washout on this recording, and its position probably prompted a lot of listeners to either put on something else or fall asleep altogether, in either case missing the underrated and often-ignored standout "Fingerprint File". While some consider this song's paranoid lyrics satirical. Jagger's experiences surely give him a unique slant on what it's like to live in a fishbowl.
Fans of the older, hard-rockin' Stones can be forgiven for being lukewarm about this offering. But if you don't mind the variety (some might call it lack of focus) there's certainly enough here to warrant investigation. On the other hand, if you don't have many Stones' CD's in your collection, there are others that you'll want to get first. A rating of three and a half stars would be more accurate, but given the availability of "skip" buttons, I rounded up to reflect the high quality of the best tracks, rather than down to reflect the stuff you might not listen to anyway.

3.0 out of 5 stars THE STONES ON AUTO-PILOT April 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
Journalist Nick Kent once pointed out that early on the Stones were tauted as "Not just a band, but a way of life." On their '69 tour they lowered this credo to "The World's Greatest Rock and Roll Band". With this album it was diminished to "it's only rock and roll".
Of all the Stones albums, this may be the least interesting. Which is not to say it's their worst or that the songs are bad, just that the album lacks a truly cohesive personality and any real inspiration throughout. This was the period where the creative and personal schisms between the Stones - Mick's jet set lifestyle, Keith's drug dependence - became such a issue that it seemed either the Stones were due to breakup or Keith would OD any day now ("I was number one on that chart longer than I ever was on the albums!", Keith once joked).
The songs are good, but you can almost hear Mick wanting to get back to the disco, and Keith was content to exert himself less and less. So much so that the album's most enjoyable and most inspired performances are a cover (Ain't Too Proud to Beg) and a throwaway (the My Dingaling-esque Short and Curlies). A number of the tracks show potential that never gets fully realized - If You Can't Roick Me, Till The Next Goodbye, Luxury - and there's a couple that they should have had the good sense to leave off the album altogether - Dance Little Sister.
And what of Time Waits for No One? The song features a great, extended guitar solo from Mick Taylor. But the Stones appeal has always been the songs and the interaction within the band, not virtuoso performances. The fact that Taylor had such a spotlight is just another display that Keith was just not putting his own greatest efforts into the album.
The title track and Fingerprint File are the best, most pleasing things on here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time waits.
"Time waits for no-one" has an excellent gitar solo. Probably the best the Stones have recorded. Don't know who it is as Richards only does tired rythym.
