Sticky Fin­gers

The Sun (Malaysia) - - ENTERTAINMENT - Uni­ver­sal Mu­sic

THE Rolling Stones are leg­ends of the rock scene, hall of famers and a band many con­sider as one of the great­est ever.

Now while I didn’t ex­actly “grow up” lis­ten­ing to them, over the years I’ve grown to ap­pre­ci­ate and even love some of their work and the re­mas­tered ver­sion of is def­i­nitely one of the most en­ter­tain­ing al­bums I’ve lis­tened to this year.

Mind you, there’s been quite a num­ber of solid rock and me­tal al­bum re­leased this year but none of them got me tap­ping my feet, snap­ping my fin­gers and just all out en­joy­ing track af­ter track like this al­bum did.

This is clearly nos­tal­gia work­ing at its best as the tracks are made up vo­cals and in­stru­ments with­out the use of mod­ern day mir­a­cles like lay­er­ing, au­to­tune or syn­the­siz­ers.

If you’re more in­clined to­wards old-school rock, I’d say this is worth pick­ing up and lis­ten­ing to as you get re­mas­tered ver­sions of great hits and also some al­ter­na­tives like acous­tic and ex­tended ver­sions of some songs.

As I men­tioned be­fore, I’ve never been a die-hard fan of The Rolling Stones, like most peo­ple who grew up with their mu­sic, but af­ter spend­ing some qual­ity time with I can see why peo­ple re­gard them as one of the great­est rock bands of all time.

To put it sim­ply, I liked ev­ery one of their tracks on the al­bum.
