Like Black and Blue, this is one of those Stones albums that lacks any real “hits” but is nonetheless pretty decent all the way through, for the most part.  It’s rather light fare, vaguely bluesy rock with little undercurrents of disco, ska/reggae, and punk circulating throughout.  Probably not the first Stones album that comes to mind when I want to listen to them, but I don’t think I’d ever complain about giving it a listen either.  I do rather like “Let Me Go” and “Dance (Part 1).”
