Well, it's no "Gimme Shelter" or "Jumpin' Jack Flash"--a little on the "generic" side...but it's actually quite good. Mick sounds like he's lost a little of his vocal distinctiveness, though I suppose that's due to age.
If losing "vocal distinctiveness" is what it takes to make him sound like this, then good riddance. Mick hasn't sounded this good for MANY years. In fact he sounds like he somehow has managed to shave a few years off those vocal cords. The band's playing also sounds pretty crisp and not sloppy which makes me wonder if Keith was involved in the sessions.

The song itself reminds me of "Jumpin Jack Flash" -- just sing the old "jumpin jack flash is a gas gas gas" over this song's chorus. Not bad for a bunch of 70 somethings.
