Hello everybody, and now that my Friends song-by-song is finishing, I am now revisiting the Stones well, this time going to the Sixties to revisit possibly their most controversial album, the 1967 psychedelic detour known as Their Satanic Majesties Request. Released December 8, 1967, this album was made in the middle of total chaos, with Andrew Loog Oldham's departure and the subsequent lack of a producer, the legal battles that plagued Jagger, Richards, and Jones, and the frequent absence of members in the studio. When released this wound up alienating fans and was dismissed as a Sgt.Pepper knockoff, but in later years would be reassessed and now has a cult following as a flawed gem. Which camp do I call in? Read My story of this album to find out: Before we begin I want to hear how any of you came to discover this album, what your initial impression was, and how your feelings changed if at all. My Story: When I started building up my Stones discography I remember this album and knowing of it's reputation and had a morbid curiosity, so I got this for Christmas, and really just had a strange fascination with it, and even though I do have to be in the right mood for this record, it always gets played at least every two or three months. Also Some Ground Rules Before We Begin: 1 - Please limit your comments to the song at hand, or songs that have already been discussed. You can let us know what your favorite song on the album is when we get to it. 2 - Please support your stated opinions, simply because it leads much more fruitful discussion than "This rocks" or "This sucks".
