Product Description

Amazon.ca

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Bona Fide Rock Classic Feb. 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
Released in 1974 while they were still at the top of their game, The Rolling Stones scored their 4th consecutive number one album with 'It's Only Rock 'N' Roll". It was also the last one to feature Mick Taylor, the most versatile member of the group.
"It's Only Rock 'N' Roll" kicks off into high gear with "If You Can't Rock Me", followed by a scorching cover of "Ain't Too Proud To Beg". Next comes the libidinous title track, a jaunty singalong that has become a classic. The album tones down a few notches with the lovely acoustic ballad "Til The Next Time We Say Goodbye". Following is Mick Taylor's magnum opus "Time Waits For No One", featuring a 3 - minute guitar solo that rivals the one on "Free Bird". "Luxury" is a faux - reggae track that is very enjoyable, while "Dance Little Sister" is all - out rock. "If You Really Want To Be My Friend" is a nice soul ballad, and "Short And Curlies" is a cute ditty. "Fingerprint File" closes the album, and is filled with excellent hooks and grooves.
Overall, an excellent album crying out for recognition.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Buck Stopped After Here Nov. 7 2003
Format:Audio CD
For many Stones fans, including yours truly, this is where the truly great Stones period. Some migtht argue that "Goat's Head Soup" marked the end, and most would argue it was "Exile On Main Street". But "It's Only Rock 'N' Roll" was the last to feature truly original Stones - sounding music before succumbing to the fever of disco and reggae.
If you're a hits - hungry Stones fan, you'll probably purchase this release for its title track. But there are a lot of other great numbers, including a scorching cover of "Ain't Too Proud To Beg", the acoustic treasure "Til The Next Goodbye", and Mick Taylor's magnum opus "Time Waits For No One". The latter track features a genuine 3 - minute guitar solo played with ease and skill by Taylor. "Luxury" is a fusion of reggae, ska and rock that comes out on top as a successful foray into newly discovered regions. Similarly, "Fingerprint File" has the Stones jumping aboard the funk wagon, complete with funky bass lines and amazing keyboard work by Billy Preston.
This album is not a true masterpiece like "Sticky Fingers" or even an imitation of one like "Goat's Head Soup", but "It's Only Rock 'N' Roll" is definitely more than average Stones material and is also the last album featuring the Stones performing true Stones music before jumping aboard the bandwagon of disco, funk and reggae.

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.
