Well I've given their new album numerous listens over the last few days and my god...it's incredible. A return to form to say the least, even though there aren't any original numbers on the album. But a pure blues album is right up my street as you know. Many of the songs actually reminded me of their sound pre-1965 with Jagger giving his best vocal performances in decades in my opinion.

10/10 for me. My review: https://tomcaswell.net/2016/12/06/album ... -lonesome/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

BBC 6Music have played at least one of the tracks.

Pure blues is not my first choice of music, though I don't dislike it. And the Stones track I heard (Steve Lamacq played it) sounded raw and powerful.

This is the music that they played as they broke through to success in the mid 60s.

Color me impressed! This would have made Brian Jones proud! Really takes me back (as you said tom_cas) to the vintage Blues sound the Stones perfected on their first two albums....Even more purer/rawer form of the Blues that they attempted during the Taylor era.....

Mick sounds impressive and I really love both Keith's and Ronnie's guitar-work.....Also, always a pleasure when Mick plays harmonica..adds that special something....Also, I cannot overlook Charlie's drumming, which to me has always been best suited for Blues/Jazz..... Definitely the best Stones album since "Voodoo Lounge"!

Edit: Fantastic review...I read it after I posted my original message and I completely agree w/you on all your points!
