So the Stones take off a few months to write, get arrested, the usual, and their U.S. label tosses together the 1967 version of December's Children, complete with tackily precious "psychedelic" artwork. And it's great, however clumsily sequenced and cursed with a lousy version of "My Girl" it may be. Non-single tracks withheld from the American editions of Aftermath and Between the Buttons stand as highlights even alongside "Let's Spend the Night Together," and the offhand nastiness of "Back Street Girl" and "Sittin' on a Fence" short-circuit the sleeve's floral motif. --Rickey Wright

The Stones 'Yellow Submarine'

"Wow.........some of the more negative reviews are harsh. 'WEEDS' is what one reviewer called 'Flowers'. First, I got to say that I'm a huge Stones fan. 'Exile' and 'Sticky Fingers' are my favorites, but it was 'Flowers', 'Between The Buttons' and 'Through The Past Darkly' that turned me on to the Stones when I was about 13 years old. I didn't know much about them before these records. What I do remember though, is how these records affected me. I would listen to 'Flowers' every morning before going to school and hum every song until I got home and then I'd put it back on the turntable again. 'Have You Seen Your Mother Baby....' is a GREAT single (although legend has it that a much better mix of the tune exists somewhere). 'Ride On Baby' is my favorite. 'Out of Time' is classic 1966 pop. 'Backstreet Girl' is very English. These songs are filled with Brian Jones colors. This record led me to Stones. Like 'Yellow Submarine' led me to The Beatles. Buy it for your kids who are to young for 'Sister Morphine'."
Flowers --- Stone still in bloom

"Flowers is good album. It may feature songs that appear elsewhere, but it is a pivotal album in the Stones catalog. It marks an important turning point in the band, representing the band's original sound and introducing sounds that would be hallmarks of future releases."

"Ok. So my son bought me this because it was always playing in the background when he was small (along with "Little White Duck" and Leonard Cohen, of course). It doesn't matter that the songs are also on other albums...they have to be somewhere....This album reminds me of what the hell I thought I was doing way back then. The attitudes represented in the songs are a fair representation of the mentality of the times. And remember,"Let's Spend Some Time Together" was left off this disc. It's worth going back to the source!"
