finally picked it up on CD | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/2/2007
this album marked the stones return to their roots.
TSMR was the worst recorded music I ever invested in; they seemed to realize the error of their ways and never went there again.
it was Brian Jones last contribution however, the drugs had taken their toll.
the songs show a diversity even though as an whole they are in a similar direction. exploring the country venue works because the 'hick' quality is dead on.
and now I finally bought the friggin thing and on CD. and I also found out the obscured lyrics which make far for sense that what I thought they were.

Listen to this album and you will see why it is regarded as the first truely great Stones album and one of the best. straight out bluesy rock and the 2 songs that the other reviewer mention are also great songs, just makes you feel like you are there jammin out with the stones around a drunken campfire. totally four star album
It's a gas, gas, gas! | Reviewer: Lucas Madigan | 12/7/2005
'Beggar's Banquet' was The Rolling Stones' first stab at country...and as expected, the band failed! "Dear Doctor" and "Factory Girl" are two of the worst songs in the band's canon, and one might guess as to whether this album was something of a joke; aside from that, bluesy rockers such as "Street-fighting Man" and "Stray Cat Blues" are all-time classics.
The following area is for review about the album.
