    I'm kinda liking this new Stones song.
    has some of their old Kick ass feel to it.

    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.

    Not bad, want to give it a couple more spins, which is more than I can say of a lot of latter-day efforts I've heard lately.

    Sounds like a song you'd hear on the end credits of a movie. Not bad tho, it's got some life to it.

    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.

    I dig it, too. Though the lyrics and tone hit rather close to the bone these days... :p

    Indeed. Mick invoking fighting zombies in a swamp--understandable, considering the rampant obsession with zombies among our youth culture. *sigh*


    BTW--by "vocal distinctiveness", I'm referring to Mick's intense pronunciation of syllables, in the Stones' classics of old. ("PlEased to mEEt yOU--hope you gUEss maaaaaaaaah nAme!" "Ah was borrrrrrrrrrrrrrn in a class fIve HurricANE," etc.) His voice in this song sounds comparatively relaxed.

    The first single of the Stones' 50th anniversary year and Keith Richards not involved in the sessions? Doesn't seem likely! Anyway you can totally hear him playing.

    I agree on Mick's vocal, it seems more energized and less mannered than on a lot of their recent stuff. I'm not crazy about the thick drum sound, it kind of muddies out Charlie's touch, but it'll do. Pretty good track overall.

    "Crossfire hurricane."

    That actually proves my point--Mick's vocal intensity had a kind of "accent" way back when--"cross" sounded like "class", etc. ;)

    Dude, just admit you didn't know the lyric. It's no disgrace, we've all had one of those "class five hurricane" moments. :lol:

    No, you didn't. You tried to wiggle out of admitting you didn't know the lyric by claiming that Mick's lack of "vocal intensity" caused you to think he was singing "class five hurricane". You said, essentially, "it was Mick's fault, not mine". :)

    ^No...I didn't say it was due to his lack of vocal intensity. ;)


    At any rate--it was my mistake. I'm simply saying the mistake was due to a mis-hear, on my part, due to his intense pronounciation of certain vowells, etc.

    If you hit google there's a few hits for "I was born in a class five hurricane".
