The Rolling Stones
1971 album is a work of art
, both inside and out.
It's a must-have for Stones fans. Lyrically
, the album is dark
. The songs
touch on themes
. Musically however,
it is pure rock and roll
. Great singing, great rhythm, great guitar.
The critics shoot the album down. From high up on their ivory towers it
makes for an easy mark. Don't listen to the critics, listen to the music.
The best recommendation comes from the fans: The album has gone multi-platinum.
You cannot talk about Sticky Fingers without talking about the cover. The
cover is a black and white photo of a guy wearing tight fitting Levi's.
(You know they are Levi's because of the trademark stitching.) The original
cover has a working zipper. The temptation to open the zipper is
irresistible--He's wearing jockey shorts. The cover was created by pop
artist Andy Warhol, who was known for turning everyday items (soup cans,
soap boxes, etc.) into art. Warhol reveals his true genius with this work.
