The Rolling Stones: Goats Head Soup (Rolling Stones Records COC 59101)

Arthur Levy, Zoo World, 8 November 1973

THE TWICE-yearly ritualized introduction to your latest Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin review: "Well folks, on first and fifth and eleventh listening the imagery is picking up a bit, but what's it gonna sound like in 6 months, anyway?" More important, what does it sound like anyway right now, how does it stack up with Sticky Fingers and Exile On Main Street, and even more ambitiously what do all three albums say about the Stones, lo these few weeks away from the 4th anniversary of Altamont? Anyway?

Total word count of piece: 1976
