It took a while to really stick with me 'cause the tempos are slower and the tracks are dense, but once I heard it a few times I fell in love.

Yeah, it's the kind of record that is timeless. I mean like it just seems to be good for all hours of the day, y'know? Been really really into it this past month or so, just can't get enough!

And to Spitz13:
Check out 'Citadel', 'Play With Fire', and 'Tumbling Dice'.

Exile On Main Street and Sticky Fingers are my two favorites, so I guess I like the Taylor era best, though I think both Brian Jones did and Ron Wood has done well in the band.

You know what? You're right! I have it playing at the moment and forty some years later - it still rocks!

I love the stones, I dont have many albums but the stuff I have is great. I think its so amazing that they are still going after 40+ years and still touring and recording.

It probably goes without saying, but I think they're one of the best rock n' roll bands in history. Their discography, however, is really daunting.

I have Aftermath, Beggars Banquet, Sticky Fingers, The Rolling Stones, Now!, Exile On Main Street, and a handful of random mp3's.

Out of those, I have to say I like Beggars Banquet the best.

^ Beggar's Banquet is probably their crowning Jones-era glory. Let It Bleed is my favourite 60's Stones album though.

I think the next album I'll get with either be Let It Bleed or Out of Our Heads. Depends..

And join the group, people.
http://groups.ultimate-guitar.com/rollingstones/

It has a criminally low amount of members.

I joined. So what are everyones favourite songs? I'm absolutely loving Happy at the moment, that intro riff, just something else. But besides that Honky Tonk Women, Street Fighting Man and Wild Horses are all incredible.
Edit: And Tumbling Dice. In fact anything off Exile.

^ It's really fun to tune your guitar to open G, put on Honky Tonk Women, and go nuts with your slide. Been doing that way too much lately...

As far as favourite songs go I really like 'Monkey Man' and 'Loving Cup' lately.

^^yes it is. Brown Sugar also. I keep a guitar in open G (I play a lot of Black Crowes and like, 90% of their rhythm stuff is in open G), so I usually find myself strumming some Rolling Stones every now and then.

I find that on the whole their most signature songs are the ones in open G outside of satisfaction and jumping jack flash.

I saw the Crowes a little while ago they reminded me a lot of the Stones. They did a ripping version of Can't you hear me knockin' too.

Jumping Jack Flash is actually in open G live

so is: I wanna hold you, you got me rocking, hand of fate. can't you hear me knockin', if you can't rock me, you can't always get what you want, and a bunch of others.

I do love Country Honk but Honky Tonk Women is just incredible. The rhythm playing is out of this world. The tone is brilliant, probably my favourite tone. And theres a pause in the playing at about 1:16 which is soo good.
