A producer’s more objective voice could have made the difference. Merely resequencing the songs would have helped. In the middle of a side, the repetitive sameness of Hot Stuff or Hey Negrita would have seemed less portentous, at least. […]

Overall, 4.5/5. I would recommend anyone that’s trying to get into the Stones to buy Sticky Fingers, but if you are already an avid Stones fan, I would recommend picking this up. […]
