you thought the Rolling Stones
were just about to hang up their socks and ready themselves for retirement [and yes i am talking about 1981
, let alone 2009] they released this
album, that, well, really wasn't a Rolling Stones album. What they did with that album and the new sound they found for "Tattoo You" was nothing short of amazing. Just when these guys should be chucking in the towel and eyeing up their pension they re-invent themselves while all the time changing the sound of rock
[again]. Sure, rock lovers appreciate and adore with what Rolling Stones did in the early 70s and late 60's but you have to admire the change they made in 1981 when New Wave
and Post Punk were ruling the world, they defied trend to claim back what was once theirs. and not only that, but with utter class.
