Exile On Main St. - Album Art Lyrics. About Exile on Main St. Released in May 1972, Exile On Main St. is widely regarded as the Stones' finest album. Although very much rooted in blues and roots-rock, it also incorporates influences from country, soul, and gospel, as well as contemporary rock. Although Tumbling Dice was the only major hit from the record, it is a favourite of Stones fans and music critics generally. The 2012 re-issue received a perfect score on Metacritic. Exile on Main St. Q&A.
A sprawling, weary double album encompassing rock & roll, blues, soul, and country, Exile doesn't try anything new on the surface, but the substance is new. Taking the bleakness that underpinned Let It Bleed and Sticky Fingers to an extreme, Exile is a weary record, and not just lyrically. Jagger's vocals are buried in the mix, and the music is a series of dark, dense jams, with Keith Richards and Mick Taylor spinning off incredible riffs and solos.
This 1972 double album holds a place in Stones mythology far beyond its initial release. It's the band at their most detailed and complex. The layers of sound take repeat listens to sort through. Mick Jagger’s vocals are often buried beneath the numerous guitar, horn, and backing vocal overdubs and the songs reflect their many influences. Straight-ahead rockers ( Rocks Off, Tumbling Dice, Happy"), dark blues ( Ventilator Blues"), country ( Sweet Virginia ), and gospel ( Shine a Light ) combine for the ultimate rock ’n’ roll night. The Rolling Stones. is The Rolling Stones' tenth studio album to be released in the UK and twelfth studio album to be released in the US. It was released on May 12, 1972, on Rolling Stones Records.
