Il serait exagéré de dire que nous tenons là un autre Beggar's Banquet ou l'égal d'un Sticky Fingers mais Undercover contient quelques réussites. Les Stones de 1983 se cherchent : Keith Richards s'accroche à ses rocks aux riffs touffus un peu ressassés et Mick Jagger tente d'ouvrir le groupe à des influences extérieures. Une fois de plus les meilleurs morceaux visent le dance floor : "Too Much Blood" mélange cocottes de guitare funky et récits de crimes gore, tandis que "Undercover (Of The Night)" donne naissance à un nouveau genre, le protest funk metal latino; comme un rapport d'Amnesty International rédigé par William Burroughs. --Hubert Deshouse

Undercover was the third studio album released by the Stones in the 1980s. None of the songs included in this record was an instant classic as Start me up had been two years before. But Undercover is a pretty solid album. She was hot is as good as Hang Fire had been in Tatto You. Pretty beat up is more interesting than Neighbours had been 2 years before. Too tough has a pretty powerful riff. Undercover of the Night and Too much blood were the big hits of this record. But I think that Feel on Baby is a much better songs. It conquers you little by little. In Undercover, Keith sings Wanna hold you which represents a follow up to what Little T & A had been in Tatto You.
It's a very solid record and it's really a pity that it has not been appreciated as much as it should have.

Among Stones purists, this is a controversial album. Some love it and, well.....some don't. I happen to belong to the former category. There are no ballads(a rarity for any Stones album), just straight ahead hard rock songs.This album was strangely out of step with the times as the 80's had a happy-go-lucky vibe and this album is quite dark and violent. Just look at the song titles-"Pretty Beat Up", "Too Much Blood","Too Tough", "Must Be Hell", and you can start to feel the sense of dread that pervades throughout.The band rocks ferociosly and Charlie Watts pounds the skins like a man possessed and conjures up a hip hop like urban jungle sound that really suits the material. They do lighten up a little on "She Was Hot", Mick's humorous blow by blow account of a one night stand and Keith's light hearted "Wanna Hold You", but this is like the sun coming out momentarily on a cloudy day. Truthfully, there isn't one particular classic cut on this album, but taken song for song as a complete album it is compelling listening from beginning to end.

This may be the most underappreciated of all Stones albums. Coming on the heels of the vastly inferior 'Tattoo You' (my opinion, of course), and right before their all-time worst album, 'Dirty Work', 'Undercover ' seems to get lost in the 'Harlem Shuffle' (forgive me.) Although the title track seems a little overwrought and dated, the rest of the album is on a par with their best work, and I'm not taking things like 'Exiles' or 'Let It Bleed' lightly, either. I think this album was the Stones' last stab at the sort of murky, arrogant and often funny style of hard rock that they had perfected so well on 'Exiles.' "Pretty Beat Up" for instance has the muddy, malevolent, recorded-in-your-livingroom sound we associate with their best stuff (and it rocks, of course). Really, every song on here has something going for it, from Keith's heartfelt rocker 'Wanna Hold You,' to the gleefully sleazy 'Tie You Up' and 'All The Way Down' to the chugging new wavey 'She Was Hot.'
I'd like to make special mention of two cuts: 'Too Much Blood'--although it's a wee bit disco-cheezbally, it's really worth it for one of Mick's hilarious ad-libs at the end of the song.... where he starts babbling about 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' among other things....and the reggae extravaganza 'Feel On Baby.' The Stones had been trying to do a reggae song on almost every album since 1975, and here they finally get it right with this haunted dub-rocker. Back in the long lost days of vinyl I even bought the extended 12" of this cut so I could really 'dub out'. Got to FEEL ON.....
So if you can handle later-era Stones, and if, like me, the glitzy overproduction of 'Tattoo You' kinda sorta turned you off, check out this rootsy rocking gem! ; ) .

It starts with a bang and doesn't let up until it's through. "She was Hot" is one of the best Stones songs, if not Rock songs, ever made. "Feel on Baby" is the perfect lead to "Too Much Blood." If you've never heard Jagger talk on a song, pick this one up. I like this CD that I actually brought it up to a bar I used to hang out at every Friday night and asked the juke box guy to put it in the box. He did, and I had a great time.

if you're familiarity with the Stones extends to things like Start Me Up, Beast of Burden, and Anybody Seen My Baby? and are wondering if Undercover is an album for you, here's a sample lyric from Undercover's "Too Tough":
I still see you in my dreams
With a kitchen knife
With it poised above your head
Now who you gonna slice?
This is a far cry from the lovely and fraternal sentiments of Waiting on a Friend.
As the follow-up to Tattoo You, Undercover was a bizarre turn. Tattoo You was an album consisting of classicist - and classic - rockers, radio-friendly lyrics and production, and featured the Stones playing to their strengths. Undercover, on the other hand, shows the band experimenting (and not always succeeding), has a weird, dub-like production, subject matter including politics, serial killers, overdoses, and sado-masochism. You know, the stuff that always gets air-play on FM radio. Lyrically, it is the goriest, grizzliest, and most gratuitous album in the Stones catalog.
The title track and the closing "It Must Be Hell" are political depictions - both socially and militarily - while "Too Tough", "Tie You Up", even the hilariously terrifying (or is that terrifyingly hilarious?) "Too Much Blood" are songs of the complexities of relationships. The album's tone is leavened by "She Was Hot" (a song about a one-night conquest) and Keith's "Wanna Hold You" (think early Beatles, as played by the Stones on half-inspiration).
If you're a devoted Stones fan, there are riffs a-plenty here. As fort what the Stones were attempting to achieve, think "Gimme Shelter", "Sister Morphine" and the unfortunate "Dancing With Mr. D". But, unike the Stones of the late 60's/early 70's, these songs aren't addresses from the heart of the fire. If you're a more casual listener, there are many other Stones albums to explore first.
