SOME GIRLS includes the hits "Beast Of Burden" and "Shattered," and one of the biggest-selling singles of the Stones' career, the disco-crossover "Miss You." The title track caused its share of controversy when its lyrics were attacked as sexist and racist.
Possibly fearing the aging dinosaur label in the punk climate of 1978 New York City, SOME GIRLS rocked harder and more consistently than most Stones albums from the '70s. Revitalized by the chummy guitar dynamic between Keith Richards' impressionistic riffs and Ronnie Wood's perfectionist lead work, the album's merit is in the diversity of its tracks.
Starting with the disco elixir of "Miss You," SOME GIRLS marked new territory for the band. As Ronnie's second album as an official member, the album showed that the Stones' sound had reworked itself, proving there was more to their dynamic than just white boy blues. The range of Ronnie's guitar work spans from the searing country lead in "Far Away Eyes" to the near-rockabilly twang in "Shattered," and finds the Stones sounding tighter and more excited than on their previous albums.
From placing their stamp on The Temptations' "Just My Imagination" to the big-city neurosis of "When The Whip Comes Down" and "Shattered," 1978's SOME GIRLS is a wild rumpus throughout.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.75) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[W]ith Mick Jagger dishing about groupies, drugs, cops, hustlers, ex-wives, paternity suits and other joys of life in the Big Apple."
Rolling Stone (p.75) - Ranked #3 in Rolling Stone's '10 Best Reissues Of 2011' -- "1978 original's gnarly decadence is doubled with outtakes, some with recent buffing."
Entertainment Weekly (p.77) - "[With] stellar remastered highlights...[including] 'Miss You' and 'Beast of Burden.'"
Magnet (p.59) - "It's the sound of the band's creative spark and musical engine, Keith Richards waking up, rejuvenated by the introduction of Ronnie Wood....It's tight, focused, lean and mean..."
NME (Magazine) (7/9/94, p.43) - 9 - Excellent Plus - "...a sardonic collection of snotty three-chorders...that swagger, that guitar, and those drums were back..."
Paste (magazine) - "[T]he record was both a staggering return to form and an inspired leap forward for a band generally thought to be in their twilight years of creativity."
Record Collector (magazine) (p.98) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's a genuinely-desirable salvo from the ever-rolling Stones cannon."
Uncut (magazine) (p.98) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "Above all, SOME GIRLS teemed with the sights, sounds, distractions and energy of New York."
