Another goddamned Stones live album! Whoopee! Let’s make this quick, kay?

Things that are different from every other goddamned Stones live album:

-They just keep getting older. This is from their fiftieth anniversary tour! Specifically a two date stint at Hyde Park, where they hadn’t played since their famous 1969 concert that took place there a few days after Brian Jones died. Just think – when that happened, the Stones had only put out one live album!

-Keith actually gives a shit for the first time in forever. Did he stop snorting blow? Start getting cortisone injections in his hands? Whatever he did, it’s working. Listen to him go way up high on the fretboard instead of noodle lamely during his “Sympathy” solo! Hoo boy!

-They actually use a choir on “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” just like the studio version. It’s pretty cool.

-The best version of “Midnight Rambler” I’ve heard since Mick Taylor left the band. This is not a coincidence, as Mick Taylor actually plays on it. Hot damn, that boy can still play. Even after eating all those doughnuts.

Things that are the same as every other goddamn Stones live album:

-The setlist (except for the fact that they actually play “Emotional Rescue!” YES!!!).

-Everything else.

Interesting notes:

-Since I started my Stones page, the band has released SIX live albums. Surely there are more on the way!

-Johnny Manziel looks like Joseph Gordon Levitt. Has anyone else noticed this? I SMELL A BIOPIC.

-To all the people who feel the need to demonstrate their “Constitutional rights” by bringing a semi-automatic weapon into Chili’s, I have just one question for you: why the fuck do you want to eat at Chili’s?

    Yesirree- the set list is reflexively culled from the department of redundancy department- except for the aforementioned “Emotional Rescue” and, praise de lawd, “Doom And Gloom”, their triumphant reinhabiting of the previously empty shell that they had become. This classic piece of Stonescraft from 2012 (has the sound of ’72) was then followed up by….nothing. Guess we’ll have to wait another 20 years for another quality release. Think they’ll make it?
