It was a massive disappointment. They hyped an unspecified event for their 50th on Facebook like it was the biggest thing ever, people were expecting an album, or a world tour or both, and then it turns out it's another compilation. What is this, the hundredth? Fuck this.

I'm a bit psyched about the two new songs though. I just wish that, while they got together two make two new songs, they had stayed together a little more, and write and record like twelve tracks and put out a new album. Would it have been that difficult?


This. From the way they hyped and promoted if I was expecting an album, a world tour, or both. Man, most bands could learn a lot from the way this stuff was being hyped and promoted. *cough-gnr-cough* But this is essentially a bunch of tracks everybody already owns + two new ones. So basically I'm going to buy two horribly expensive new tracks. That's a bit of a rip-off. I already own The Singles Collection and Forty Licks. That's more Stones compilation albums that anybody should need, despite there being loads more.


The Stones have always thrown a bit of hype into their tours since the 80s and sold expensive swag at their shows. I think the bigger deal this year are "Charlie Is My Darling" and "Crossfire Hurricane" and the four concerts. The collection's pretty comprehensive, prob. could've put a Blu Ray version of it out, being that most of those songs they've either made videos for, or performed on TV.

"Singles Collection" is great, but you wind up skipping through some of those songs, for some reason I never liked "Forty Licks" because of how they laid the songs out. This one's more like a comprehensive singles collection in running order.

Granted, the vaults thing is fantastic for the fans. Charlie Is My Darling etc and gems for the hardcore Stones lovers. But the "mainstream audience" and advertising focus have been the book and Grrr. Now, I love the book. Great stuff! But Grrr.... everything I said earlier. Sure it's pretty comprehensive, but it's still pretty useless to anybody who already has a Stones compilation as it'll have about 70 or 80 percent overlap. Especially with either the Singles Collection or Forty Licks. So it's still just something the hardcore fans will pay too much money for in order to have those 2 new tracks. In either case absolutely not worth the money.

It's a catchy song...

When I see footage of Guns N' Roses, I see that fucking hunger and attitude. You could not fuck with those five guys. It was just raw. It was this lean, hungry thing on its way up.  - Slash

When we started we wanted to be the coolest, sexiest, meanest, nastiest, loudest, funnest band.  - Axl

I like Doom and Gloom. I also liked Don't Stop. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards are still making fucking cool songs.

I'm not a Stones fan at all, but I heard Doom and Gloom on the radio this morning and it was refreshing. I didn't mind it at all.

For all the moaning people: shut the fuck up! They at least release new music, unlike some artists... (like Axl n' his band)
