Steel Wheels

An album by The Rolling Stones

< read all 1 reviews

Their Absolute Worst

  • Oct 9, 1998
Avoid this album at all costs. Out of twelve songs only two or three even stand out a little. This album epitomizes what was wrong with the late 1980's music scene. The overall production of this disc is too programmed with way too many synthesizers and annoying backround vocals. Continental Drift sounds like a piece created in outer space WHERE ROCK N ROLL DOES NOT EXIST!!! As a matter of fact whats missing from this record is a solid dose of good old rock n roll. I can not understand for the life of me how the first reviewer could consider this trash a Five Star Album! Five Stars is for Classic Recordings Only. This disc wouldn't make a classic frisbee with its dull gray logo.

What did you think of this review?

About this topic


The release of Steel Wheels in 1989 followed the group's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame and coincided with their eagerly-awaited return to the live arena. Recorded at Air Studios in Montserrat and Olympic in London, it made the Top 3 in Britain and in the States. It contains classic tracks like the US Top 5 single Mixed Emotions as well as Rock And A Hard Place, which boasts a trademark riff as infectious as any they've come up with. The incredibly atmospheric Almost Hear You Sigh also charted while Richards often reprises the ballad Slipping Away in concert.--This text refers to an alternateAudio CDedition.
