Digitally remastered reissue of the veteran British Rock band's 1980 album. 10 tracks including 'She's So Cold', 'Summer Romance' and 'Emotional Rescue'.
Un disque composite comme les Stones en firent quelques-uns pendant la première moitié des années quatre-vingt. Jagger tire le groupe du côté de l'exotisme ("Indian Girl", aux cuivres mariachi arrangés par Jack Nitzsche) et cible les pistes de danse ("Dance" ou "Emotional Rescue", avec son falsetto de légende). De leur côté, Keith Richards et Ron Wood croisent les guitares à l'infini sur des rocks nerveux, parfois anecdotiques ("Summer Romance", "Let Me Go"), parfois réussis ("She's So Cold" et le presque reggae "Send It To Me"). Le disque se clôt de belle façon sur "All About You", la traditionnelle ballade de Keith Richards qui, pour cause de séparation amoureuse, atteint de vrais sommets d'émotion. --Hubert Deshouse

My favourite Stones albums are from the 70's. That's my era, and I've listened to them a lot. This one is "almost 70's": 1980.
I'm also discovering that the later Stone's albums are worth listening to, more than once. The lyrics aren't always deep, but it's still Stones music.
For the new 2009 reissues, I haven't noticed much different from the last reissues. The packaging is the same, and the sound is very similar, if not exact, to me.
"Emotional Rescue" does, however, have a number of highlights. "She's So Cold" is a great rocker in league with "Start Me Up" and "Brown Sugar". "Let Me Go" is a nice country - style number that was one of the few highlights of their 1981 tour. The funk - laden title track (Billboard # 3) is a great dance song, as good as "Miss You". Finally, there's the Keith - sung ballad "All About You", which ranks as his best love song and second - best song overall (after "Happy").
On the downside, there's a number of low points. "Indian Girl" can draw you in with enough listens, but is lyrically and musically bizarre. "Dance (Pt. 1)" may be the worst song they ever did, and thankfully the second part was never released. "Summer Romance" and "Where The Boys Go" are bombastic, while "Send It To Me" and "Down In The Hole" are horrible reggae attempts.
Overall, not their best efforts. Some songs shine above the rest, but this is not top notch level Stones material.
"Emotional Rescue" kicks off with "Dance, Pt. 1". I guess the band figured that after the sucess of "Miss You" that they could hit it big again with another dance track. Sadly, the results are not the same. "Summer Romance" fairs better with its return to the rockier sound there known for. "Send It To Me" is a bland foray into reggae, while "Let Me Go" is a country - style rocker that somehow works. Next is "Indian Girl", and it is one of the strangest things the band ever did, if not the strangest. With its mariachi rhythm and pleading Mick vocal, the song has potential but gets lost in the muck and myer of production overkill. "Where The Boys Go" is another wacky number, especially with the freaky girl chorus on the tag. "Down In The Hole" is weird blues song. Fortuneately, the album closes with a hat track of excellent songs. The title track was big hit for the band, and why not? Its funky melody is irresistible, and Mick's falsetto is to die for. And who can forget that weird spoken part at the end. "She's So Cold" was the album's other hit. It has great guitar interplay between Keith and Ronnie, not to mention a great Mick vocal. Finally, there's the closer.Read more ›
These are valid arguments, but what it overlooks is that this is the sound of the Stones simply enjoying themselves. It's worth noting that during this period not only were the Stones enjoying the fruits of their commerical and artistic triumph with Some Girls, but also that both Mick and Keith had new love interests in their lives, and Keith was a free man, having recently gotten off his Canadian charges for possession of heroin with intent to traffic.
So why not have some fun? From the first moments, "Dance" presents itself as a groove. Then Mick and Keith actually have a discussion over the track, evetually Mick getting to proclaiming "Get up, get out, get into something new". No, it's not "You Can't Always Get What you Want"...but who said it has to be? A lyric like "When I touched her, my hand just froze" from "She's So Cold" may not be "My name is called Disturbance/I'll shout and scream, I'll kill the king, and rail at his servants", but so what? It's still a killer tune.
Throughout the album, the funny, goofy, New Wave-influenced songs work best. "Send It To Me", "Let Me Go", "She's So Cold", the title track. When Mick's sense of humor is on - the goofy spoken section of the title track, the reggae-influenced laundry list of types of women Mick would like to meet (including "ukranian, albanian, even alien") - the album is absolutely engaging, charming, and absorbing.Read more ›

I consider myself a huge Stones fan and I purchased this LP when it first came out in 1980. I was dissapointed then and I still think it is a somewhat weak album from the Stones. Read morePublished on April 8 2004
Released between Some Girls (1978) and Tattoo You (1981), which are some of the best ROlling Stones records ever, Emotional Rescue (1980) was never given much credit. Read morePublished on Feb. 12 2004 by Riccardo Pelizzo
Emotional Rescue sounds as fresh today as it did in 1980. Fun, playful and experimental, it's the record that made me a lifelong Rolling Stones fan. Read morePublished on May 8 2003
