  1. Wonderful… just wonderful. Red eyes… headless… smoking… chilled… loose… busy… marvellous. There’s a point when listening to this album that I think exactly that.

    1. Top of the class J! Too much to write properly about this one and not enough skill to do it.

      I enjoyed giving Joan Crawford devil eyes too.

  2. I am not sure what to make of it, but if those pictures mean you consider it to be the best rock and roll album of all time than I agree. =P

  3. Considered thoughtful analysis of a record that has long suffered by it’s too squeaky clean production and the wholesome image of the musicians. Finally a reviewer has gone below the surface to see the struggle beneath, Bravo sir Bravo and many thanks.

      1. It is heartening to see a blogger go beneath the perfect surface to discover the depth of pain as before unheard in the record.

    1. How dare you. I spend hours and hours of careful thought and planning before cranking this stuff out.

      I am actually going on holiday quite near to where this was recorded next month.

    1. I know Bruce, I know but this is such an important LP for me that I wanted to do it justice in my own way. I do appreciate that not everyone wants to read six paragraphs about ‘Turd On The Run’ though.

      1. (sighs in a lofty, rather patronising manner)

        I went for a comparison of the standard and deluxe editions, despite my scepticism about some of the details in the remastering. I also implied that I was happy with some of the new bonus content, although there wasn’t quite enough on show to justify the price. You just need to read between the lines a bit.
