Product Description

Clearly their answer to Sgt. Pepper, or at least "All You Need is Love," Satanic Majesties is actually as sloppy an artifact as Flowers. But even at their most (willfully?) goofy '60s moment, the Stones came up with some good songs. "She's a Rainbow" is fine second- tier pop-psychedelia, while "2000 Light Years From Home" can still transmit a pretty handsome case of the Fear. Bill Wyman's "In Another Land" is as thin as his phased vocal, but still plays better than "Sing This All Together (See What Happens)." Not the most essential Stones disc by a long shot, but one that fans will want to own sooner or later. --Rickey Wright --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Everyone always thinks of the stones as the bad boys and the beatles as geniuses,but I think the stones are just as good or better.I thought Sgt Pepper was a great album but so was this one,it just had a darker feel so I think that scared a lot of people in the friendlier 60's.The only song that sucks(big time) is the reprise of sing it all together.I thought In another land was amazing,that's the reason I bought the album.It's so dark and mystical like nothing you'll ever hear.

It would be lazy for me to compare this album to contemporaries of the band. It would also be lazy to use the old outdated "p" adjective to describe this music. However I can think of numerous other adjectives: challenging, rewarding, inventive, chaotic, grimy, majestic.

Their Satanic Majesties Request takes some of the exploration that The Rolling Stones had done on Between The Buttons (think "Ruby Tuesday") and turns that on its head. Mix in ample supplies of chemicals and a total fearlessness, and a belief that what they were doing was total brilliance, and what you get is Their Satanic Majesties Request. This album surely must have convinced parents that Satan himself was possessing the hi-fi.

Light on guitar, rhythm and blues, TSMR is still among the best Stones albums if you can penetrate its purple smokey haze. Doing so will reveal an album constructed in layers, and peeling back these layers will release melodies and playing that will keep you enthralled for years as you keep coming back to this album. Is that Mick asking, "Where's that joint?"

"She's A Rainbow" is a perfect pop song, as brilliant as "Ruby Tuesday" if not moreso due to Charlie Watts' relentlessness. "2000 Man" is as catchy as anything else the Stones produced, with neat lyrics that must have seemed so foreward-thinking in the 60's. I do think that Ace Frehley's version of the song is an improvement by simplifying things and heavying up the guitar, but this is still a great song.

While every song has melodies and instrumentation coming out the wazoo, it surely is "Sing This All Together (See What Happens)" that is the centrepiece of this bizarre journey into the unknown. 8 1/2 minutes long, and never really going anywhere, some might consider this a waste of vinyl.

Yes this collection has taken a huge beating from the critics stick but it is truly a time capsule in itself. This is the first self produced effort by the Stones having fired Loog Oldham and though the songwriting seems stressed the sound is awsome.Brian Jones erupts on this album exploring no less than 15 instruments all the while suffering 2 nervous breakdowns,2 drug busts and having his chick stolen by own band member Keith.
The new production and studio freedom does bring out some different beats by Watts.
All in all it was a benchmark for the band which ultimatly transformed them into the sado/freak group we found on singles like J.J.Flash and the Beggars Banquet album.

That was my reaction when I first heard this album for the first time in 36 years. Like most kids growing up in the 1960s', I was heavily into The Rolling Stones. It had been a long time since I'd heard "Their Satanic Majesties Request", so I decided to check it out. After listening, I was wondering what I was listening to.
This record was really the band's effort to keep up with the times by cashing on the pyschedellic trend that was going on in the music industry. Before this album was released, The Beach Boys scored a # 1 hit with "Good Vibrations", and The Beatles released "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band". Thinking that they too could score a successful album by recording the same genre and came up with this insipid pile of goo.
"TSMR" kicks off with the vapid "Sing This All Together", which features an awful horn section and pedestrian lyrics. After that comes the droning guitars of "Citadel", a lurching rocker with tasteless words and awful vocals. Bill Wyman's "In Another Land" can only be described by one word: odd. Featuring eerie wind sound effects, it alternates between Wyman's nasal voice narrating a futuristic romance and Mick's anger - induced vocals on the chorus. "2000 Man" is an acoustic guitar - driven look at the future sung through the eyes of a robot. The first half of the album screeches to a halt with a lecherous epic reprise of the "Sing This All Together" that seems endless.
The second half of the album fares better thanks to the presence of several good tracks. There are two excellent tracks here. There's the light and airy "She's A Rainbow" and the dark, brooding space odyssey "2000 Light Years From Home".

Let us just look back at 1967 and take all of the albums mentioned here as what they are.... snapshots of music and musical culture and their flowering at the time.
It is most definately true that this album resembles Piper at the Gates of Dawn more than Sgt. Pepper. Reasons being, among many others, the strong penchant for improvisational segments and segues, and the rough-hewn production. Sgt. Pepper was more a collection of finely polished vignettes, and finds a lot of it's notariety in the sheer technical arena, as a great many recording techniques were born, and the album changed the way all subsequent albums would be recorded.
This is not to take anything away from ANY of the albums mentioned, these are just some of the facts as I see them.
People mention the arrangements, textures, and Orchestrations both horn and string on Their Satanic Majesties Request, and with good reason. These are all elements that elevate the songs on this album to what they are. Anyone bother to note just who ARRANGED all that, and in my opinion, was largely responsible for a good bit of the sonic results we have? It is none opther than John Paul Jones, of Led Zeppelin, who prior to Zep was one of THE arrangers/orchestrators in the British pop music studio scene at the time. I feel that his contributions on this album in particular cannot be stressed enough.
All that being said, it is a great snapshot of a place and time, and is a musical landmark for all of time.
Happy listening to all.
