Quite possibily one of the best albums ever, on most of the records in the world Parachute Woman would be my favourite

I'd been putting off rating this album all week. Unlike a few others that don't appeal to me (like "Graceland"), I can't even explain why I don't particularly like "Beggars Banquet." I know I've expressed my feelings about its most legendary track before on the forum, so the album doesn't get off to a great start personally. After listening to it yet again, I don't think this one's ever going to click (although I do really like the first two songs here).

06 | Street Fighting Man
08 | Stray Cat Blues
02 | No Expectations
07 | Prodigal Son
10 | Salt of the Earth
09 | Factory Girl
05 | Jigsaw Puzzle
04 | Parachute Woman
03 | Dear Doctor
01 | Sympathy for the Devil

Overall album rating: 5.5 (Okay)
