Several things are clear from watching Martin Scorsese's concert movie SHINE A LIGHT. One is that the Rolling Stones are old. Another is that they're still able to play with a tightness and vigor that stands up to the music being made by most current 20-something outfits. That energy crackles through the 16 tracks on the SHINE A LIGHT soundtrack, the film's sonic counterpart, which captures the Stones at New York City's Beacon Theater in 2006 in surprisingly stripped-down, feral form.
There's nothing flashy or pretentious about the Stones' performance, which helps highlight their unmistakably natural, time-tested ease playing with each other. Even dusty classics like "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and "Brown Sugar" come off with flair, and lesser-played gems like "Faraway Eyes" and "You Got the Silver" are a welcome treat. The guests-the White Stripes' Jack White on "Loving Cup," Buddy Guy on the Muddy Waters' classic "Champagne and Reefer," and Christina Aguilera on a fiery version of "Live With Me"-enliven the band, and provide some of the album's best moments. Given the amount of live Stones' material available, and the band's already towering legend, the necessity of such a set may be debatable, but it's hard not to hear this for what it is: a good rock show from a band that knows its stuff.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.56) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "It documents the Stones on a historic roll, reveling in their mastery...When the Stones lock into classics like 'Brown Sugar' and 'Satisfaction,' it's gravy."
Uncut (p.102) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The Stones are at their best on the spoof country of 'Faraway Eyes'; and Richards' attack on 'You Got The Silver', with Ronnie Wood picking holes in an acoustic slide guitar."
Q (Magazine) (p.132) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "A word of praise...for Richards, whose warmed-brandy vocals are a treat on the rarely heard 'You Got The Silver'..."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.103) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A]s feisty good-time rock goes, the Stones get good and gone and it's worth every penny for the duet with Buddy Guy on Muddy Waters' 'Champagne And Reefer' alone."
Artist Bio
Rolling StonesIt's hard to overestimate the importance of the Rolling Stones in rock & roll history. The group, which formed in London in 1962, distilled so much of the music that had come before it and has exerted a decisive influence on so much that has come after. Only a handful of musicians in any genre achieve that stature, and the Stones stand proudly among them.Every album the group released through the early Seventies -- from The Rolling Stones in 1964 to Exile on Main Street in 1972 -- is essential not simply to an understanding of the music of that era, but to an understanding of the era itself. In their intense interest in blues and R&B, the Stones connected a young American audience to music that was unknown to the vast majority of white Americans. Though the Stones were not overtly political in their early years, their obsession with African American music -- from Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, and Howlin' Wolf to Chuck Berry, Marvin Gaye, and Don Covay -- struck a chord that resonated with the goals of the civil rights movement. If the Stones had never made an album after 1965 they would still be legendary.
