If you like the Stones and don't know about this album, you MUST! And that's why I want to tell you this Rolling Stones' masterpiece. I bought at least 3 copies of the original LP--the one that has the 3D art on it (accomplished with a specially-waved/designed plastic square that covers the picture of the Stones sitting in front of the castle)--all of which were stolen! Everyone wanted this album, which is why so many were stolen!




THIS IS THE REASON THAT THIS RECORDING IS SO DAMNED GOOD: Have you ever heard that artists project what will happen in the future by about 30 years? It's so true. Just look at the coldness within the machine-age pieces of "Modern" art and compare that to the dreaming beauty of Impressionism. Read extensional authors like Sarte and Camus. Listen to the ugly, dissonant sounds in "Modern Jazz," as well as in "Modern Classical," and you will get my drift.




Wow! You will be amazed to hear that artists' projection of the future in this particular recording--as well as damned good music. It's amazing how the Stones wrote [lyrics] and sang about, in 1967, the civilization that we are living in right now. How did they project the loneliness of space travel to lands on planets in distant galaxies that would take more than one lifetime just to get to here on Earth? How did they know, back in 1967, when they recorded "2000 Light Years from Home?" How did they know that all of us were to become a number (2000 Man) in the future? And in "Sing this all Together (See what Happens)," you'll understand, if you never got high on MJ and/or acid back in the sixties like we old flower-power hippie baby boomers did, the creativity that flowed in to us from those drugs. "In Another Land" is a land of the dreams, of the castles that you build for yourself in your mind, that you'd get if you were high. Marijuana should be legal.




You are missing the boat if you listen to the Stones without hearing this album. Gee, if I get it on CD, I HOPE, in my olla-age, that no one will steal it from me! I have always LOVED this recording. Sure, you can compare it to Sgt. Pepper by the Beatles, since they too were tripping on grass and acid at the time they recorded it. But the Stones' outlook at that time is a little bit different. Any rocker that does not listen to BOTH the Beatles and the Stones of that time period (middle to late 1960s and very early 1970s) can't understand the evolution of rock to what it is now. And remember: keep your ears peeled at what is being said by musicians today for a glimpse of the future. The way I hear it, it is getting pretty harry out there!

I Love this Record
Danielle Lane | Horseshoe, North Carolina | 06/11/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Every note, every word, every song, I just love this record. It's true that my friends don't like it as well as I do, but I can't help that. The Stones, Like the Beatles with "Sgt. Pepper" and Bob Dylan with "Blonde on Blonde" went a little psychedelic. But I think this record tops those other efforts. The music is just fab. Can I say that, fab. I shiver every time I play "2000 Light Years from Home." Those opening chords send chills up my spine. "On with the Show" is a pure delight as is "Citadel." I love "Sing this All Together," the opening song, but I really like to get into the long and strangely weird sort of instrumental "Sing this All Together (See What happens)." Anyway, like I said, I just love this record and if you give it a chance I think you will too."

"Perhaps THEIR SATANIC MAJESTIES REQUEST is supposed to be a tongue-in-cheek parody of the psychedelic excesses prevalent in 1967. If so, it succeeds in such aspirations "majestically." Or maybe Mick and the boys were only ripping off SGT PEPPER'S as a lark-- I'd like to think this is the case. Merry Pranksters weren't exclusive to California, after all.

To really appreciate this album in all its glory, one must see the original LP with its murky animated 3-D plasticine artwork (Look-- they turn their heads!). To savor the music however, a CD is quite sufficient.

This set has a lot of terrific songs on it. The only reason it gets a middling rating is "Sing This All Together (See What Happens)" --an unnecessary endless jumble that brings SATANIC MAJESTIES to a screeching halt-- much like Lennon's car crash does to the White Album on "Revolution #9." Both tracks badly mar the records they are on, yet neither experience would be truly complete without them. So, we must muddle through somehow.

THEIR SATANIC (etc.) has the distinction of containing both (to my mind) the best and worst examples of the Stones' golden era (1965-'73). The latter of course, being the cacophonous song mentioned above. Now, my all-time favorite Rolling Stones track may surprise you--- its....."On With The Show." For all its intended prurience, this one has always made me smile. You see-- there's a bit of Merry Prankster in us all!"
