Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite stones albums June 11 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grimy Majesty May 17 2011
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
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 It would also be lazy to use the old outdated "p" adjective to describe this music.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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why Five Stars? May 30 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best psychadelic albums Feb. 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
I read one review saying that the Stones were trying to cash in on the psychadelic craze. This is not true, the Stones were probably doing more LSD than most bands out there. This album is pure LSD-influenced psycadelia. I don't compare this album to anything the Beatle's did either. The guitar sounds more influenced by Syd Barrett, especially on the reprise to Sing This All Together. I do have to say that though, it doesn't sound like they are really trying to copy anyone or anything, just doing music that they thought sounded cool while tripping and they wanted the world to hear it. I think Mick Jagger was quoted with saying "We took too much acid while recording that." I don't know how accurate that quote is but he did say something similar about taking too much acid. When bands take alot of acid, you get a psychadelic album, look at Pink Floyd's Piper at the Gates of Dawn, Jimi Hendrix's Electric Lady Land, Bob Dylan's Blonde on Blonde, and Syd Barrett's solo albums. I think Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts club band was somewhat psychadelic but it was a pop-psychadelic, something made to bring the psychadelia to the mainstream, and make that kind of music more accessible. This stones album is far from easily accessible though. The more you listen to it, the more you appreciate it. I for one wish that the Stones did more psychadelic stuff, but we are still left with a great catalog from a great band. You can't hate on one album because it was completely different than anything else they did. One of the most underappreciated albums of all time, and one of my favorites.

Format:Audio CD
Recorded when most of the band was high and/or in jail, TSMR is understandably kind of a mess. The press jumped on it with both feet at the time and declared it awful, as did many of the less progressive fans of the band at the time. However, I think this was a necessary stage in the development of the Stones and really one of their more experimental albums. Many people cite the Beatles as an influence on here, but the overdriven and hyper-reverbed chords that open "Citadel" sound like pure Syd Barrett to me, and "2000 Light Years From Home" also seems more than a little influenced by the Madcap from Cambridge to these ears. And if you pretend "2000 Man" is on a Kinks album, say "Something Else By The Kinks," it's an interesting exercise. But who knows? I always wondered if the whole album wasn't a little bit of a parody of "Sgt. Pepper" instead of an attempt to make their own version.
What is true is that there's very little of the scroungey rock rebels of the first albums here. Poor old Brian Jones puts in a terrific performance here, adding all kinds of instrumental flourishes. It's his creepy mellotron and electronics that turn "2000 Light Years From Home" into what it is, and his use of "non-rock" instruments (especially on the underrated "Gomper") helps make the album sonically quite intriguing.
Granted that Bill Wyman's "In Another Land" is awful, but it's comically awful. And in any case he's forgiven, because on the rest of the album his bass playing is phenomenal.
The standout tracks, as others have said, are "Citadel," "She's a Rainbow," "2000 Man," and "2000 Light Years from Home." But overall, this is really worth spending time with.
