Not Too Special

  • May 21, 2003
Somehow December's Children falls short of other Rolling Stones recordings during the Brian Jones era. Whereas recordings like Aftermath, Between The Buttons, and 12 X 5 feature catchy hooks and creative arrangements, December's Children seems to feature the Stones going through the motions with a few noteworthy moments.

Get Off My Cloud is clearly the best song in this lot with ringing guitars and super drumming. As Tears Go By is a touching ballad and I'm Free has a fairly catchy tone. The live tracks, I'm Moving On and Route 66 have some good energy but do not vary much from prior fast rockers that the Stones recorded at that time. When Blue Turns To Grey and The Singer Not The Song have nice poppy tones but seem kind of ordinary with recordings as Out Of Time and Lady Jane.

If you feel the Rolling Stones can do no wrong, pick this one up. However, it surely does not rank as a premiere recording.
