Description

The Rolling Stones: Mick Jagger (vocals); Bill Wyman (vocals, bass); Keith Richards (guitar, background vocals); Brian Jones (guitar, various instruments); Charlie Watts (drums).

Additional personnel includes: J.P. Jones (strings); Nicky Hopkins (piano).

Part druggy experiment, part musical rivalry with the Fab Four, and a total anomaly in the Rolling Stones' catalogue, THEIR SATANIC MAJESTIES REQUEST contains at least three trippy classics in "Citadel," "She's a Rainbow," and "2000 Light Years From Home." That it also contains an extensive sample of Bill Wyman snoring and an eight-minute stoned jam that begins with the timeless phrase "Where's that joint?" is a measure of SATANIC MAJESTIES' breadth of genius and folly.

There's a lot going on here--try comparing the wayward Eastern atmospheres of "Gomper" to anything on BEGGAR'S BANQUET, and marvel that you're listening to the same band. The fact that Jagger and Richards could still come up with the unimpeachably charming "She's a Rainbow"--baroque pop at its finest--and a fair stab at heavy R&B in "The Lantern," while attempting to negotiate the band's rocky passage through Flower Power is a tribute to their vision, their perseverance, and their drugs of choice.

What the critics say...

NME (Magazine) (7/8/95, p.46) - 8 (out of 10) - "...a bold move which infuriated some critics at the time, but who can argue with the languorous psychedelia of `2,000 Light Years From Home', the anthemic innocence of `She's A Rainbow' or the wit of `2,000 Man'? Marvellous..."
