Their Satanic Majesties Re­quest (50th An­niver­sary) ABKCO Mu­sic

Stones for the stoned Of­ten dis­missed as fad-chas­ing psy­che­delic folly, this 50th an­niver­sary edi­tion of Their Satanic Majesties Re­quest is an un­ex­pected plea­sure. Though heavy with ly­ser­gic daft­ness there are some over­looked gems here. The haunted harp­si­chords and tremolo-washed vo­cals of In An­other Land are a rather Nigel Tufnel-es­que pas­tiche of Lucy In The Sky With Di­a­monds, but

Ci­tadel and 2000 Light Years From Home are much stronger, their foot­loose psych-rock of­fer­ing a more heady, ex­otic vi­sion of the Stones’ sound than you’ll find else­where. Groovy. [JD] Stand­out track: Ci­tadel For fans of: Early Pink Floyd, Jonathan Wil­son
