This is the first Stones album made entirely of original material. They've already proved themselves as one of the most raunchy rock bands ever and reached huge success with songs on their previous efforts, including (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction. Here they proved themselves to be even more capable as suggested by Paint It Black, arguably their most well-known song. However, everything else hasn't aged too well. Most of their writing isn't up to par and there aren't many songs I can recall other than Paint It Black , the other singles, and the uncomfortably misogynistic moments on Stupid Girl. Even with those knocks against it, it's still worth checking out because of how much it evolved the Stones from a successful blues act to one of the greatest rock n' roll bands. It's no Sticky Fingers, but it's great in its own right.
