Label: Rolling Stones/Atlantic

The Stones last great album before they became dinosaurs of "classic rock," Some Girls captures Mick, Keith, Charlie, and Ron at the peak of their debauched swag. Every song's a killer, from the disco stomp of "Miss You" to the whiskey-soaked country & western of "Faraway Eyes." Keith's gentle guitar solos on "Beast of Burden" are to die for and "Shattered" sums up the appeal of New York City as well as any record ever: "Laughter joy and loneliness and sex and sex and sex and sex."
