...as the world collectively shrugs its shoulders.

Yes, the rock band that won't quit are set to release their first studio album since 1997's "Bridges to Babylon". Tentatively titled "Bigger Bang" (ugh), the album features thirteen songs:

1. Streets Of Love
2. Oh No Not You Again
3. Back Of My Hand
4. She Saw Me Coming
5. Under The Radar
6. Look What The Cat Dragged In
7. This House Is Empty Without You
8. Walking Alone In The Rain
9. You Drive Too Fast
10. Rough Justice
11. It Won't Take Long
12. Take Me Down Slow
13. Neo-Con

'Neo-Con' is a very politically charged song, while 'Streets Of Love' will be the first single. It was rumored that 'Oh No, Not You Again' would've been the first single, as they performed it during their press conference back in June, and then it was said that 'She Saw Me Coming' would be the first, but this is apparently not the case. Oh, and 'Rough Justice' is an unrelated song to The Cross's...

All I can say is 'eh'. I'll buy it to hear what it sounds like. Hopefully they can pull off some kind of magic like they did between 1968 and 1972, but I'm not hopeful. They should've given up in 1978 with "Some Girls".

I think they have pulled of some really good songs on nearly every album they have done up till now though. But they are pushing it...
Especially with their ticket prices.
I will definitely check out the album, but thats it.

I'll probably get it just 'cos I'm a Stones fan, but I don't have high hopes for it. I bought their last three studio albums (Steel Wheels, Voodoo Lounge, and Bridges to Babylon) and my guess is it will be similar to those -- 4 or 5 good songs and the rest pretty much filler.

And I totally agree with you that 1978's Some Girls was their last classic album of new material. In my opinion, 1981's Tattoo You is the last great album they put out but that was made up of only 2 new songs and the rest were outtakes from sessions over the previous 10 years.

Bottom line is that they produced their best material when they were drugged out...LOL

Hmmm...I'll give it a chance, I think, but I don't love too much of their new material. I do want to see them on tour, especially since they've added another night to when they're here in Los Angeles!


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

I'll most likely check it out, at least........the Stones might be way past their peak (and what a peak it was, eh?).....but I'll probably like their new stuff more than I do that of most new bands these days.....I would love to see them in concert again (I saw them in 1994 at the Pontiac (Michigan) Silverdome!).....but tickets will probably be just outrageously expensive! Tickets for that 94 show I went to were either $40 or $50 (I forget which), and that was for seats in the 12th row, right in the middle! You know its a good seat when you can FEEL the pyro.....heheh...

Those were the days! I saw 'em in 1998(?) for $50 (had lower arena seats behind the stage) and in 2003 for $100 (had nosebleed seats all the way in the back of the arena). Knowing what I do now, I wished I'd paid the $100 for floor seats in '98 'cos in some places for this tour, the floor seats are going for $300 face value.

Wow! Shows you how much prices have gone up! I remember paying something like $25-$30 for Rush tickets around the same time.....and they were 2nd row, side of the stage....the closest I've sat for any concert.......if I had had any fillings in my teeth then, they probably would have been rattled out of my mouth by Geddy Lee's bass guitar...:)

I've looked at the ticket prices for some of the Queen + Paul Rodgers European tour, and done the conversion into US dollars....and if they keep those kinda prices for the US 2006 tour, they'll be something like $70 or so.....I would consider that too expensive for just about any other band, but to see Q+PR, I'll pay it! :)

Though I see prices for the Aruba concert are $40-$60 US, so thats a little better at least...

Looking at the artists/bands that have made the biggest profits from tours in the past years (Madonna, Paul McCartney, Rolling Stones, U2 etc.), it seems that the tickets in the US are at least twice as expensive as they are in Europe.
Surely Brian can't let an opportunity like that slip past by him? :P

An example to follow for Brian, Roger and Paul ;-)

And about the filler songs... Queen had them on every album too...


I got to try al little more,

because I'm an asshole but I'm learning.

no seems more like last year...

Even if I think their greed is tasteless and they are getting to old to live like they do, the stones are very professional and experienced as musicians. They know how to write and record songs so the new album will certainly be at least a decent one.

First album in 8 years?

I doubt it will lead to their first hit in 30.

They've been winging it since I was a nipper, that lot. Look at the state of 'em - they must come out on stage in fucking mobility scooters.


FLASHMAN STRIKES AGAIN!



Paul Rodgers is not the best thing since fried Fred.

The Stones haven't made a decent album since 'Tatoo You' in 1981.

Does anyone really think this one would be good.

LOL! We'll talk about stamina! Got to hand it to those craggy old faces for still selling out the stadiums.

They're coming to Fenway Park (Boston)in Sept. and lots of their fans are coming.

The boys still got it even if their albums don't sell as well as they used to.

Kriz ;o)


Long Live Queen!!!
