The Stones explore new styles and perform them very well. Rocks Off is a great song with gritty guitars, piano, and vocals. Shine A Light is an especially great tune with its gospel setting and the neat underwater effect on the guitar solos by Mick Taylor. Even some of the weaker numbers have strong moments like the saxaphone solo by Bobbie Keys on Casino Boogie. An absolute purchase.
