Is Exile On Main St. the best Stones album?

Another "Exile" poll

I was curious about how much you like it. I think it's their best album and one of the best records ever made.

Easy vote for me..as far as I am concerned Exile is the best album ever (by any band).

Re: Is Exile On Main St. the best Stones album?

I voted "one of their best". It's the last Stones album I care about, nothing after Exile was really important to me, but overall, I prefer Let it Bleed.

"It's one of their best albums but not the BEST one". I think The Stones albums for me is in this order:
1. Let It Bleed
2. Beggar's Banquet
3. Sticky Fingers
4. Exile On Main St.

Re: Is Exile On Main St. the best Stones album?

In my younger, bright-eyed naive years I would have said no. There are other Stones albums which are more consistent and probably even have better songs. But those albums are just straight ahead, good albums. Exile is different. Exile is unique, it's raw, it's tortured. If tasked with identifying the piece of work which declares the Stones to be a formidable and 'great' band, Exile is my pick without doubts. Exile carries the spark of the divine.

Exile on Main St. is mankind's greatest achievement, a few notches above the Parthenon and the Mona Lisa.

It's good but I prefer at least other 5-6 Stones albums.

In my opinion, Exile is a very overrated double album.

It's one of their better albums but not my favorite. I like their R&B flavored '60s albums better.

Sticky Fingers is the superior album. Better songs, better performances, and more cleanly recorded.

Re: Is Exile On Main St. the best Stones album?

i prefer let it bleed and maybe beggars banquet as well. Along w/ sticky fingers, all 4 are about the same for me and find it hard to rank them

Man, I don't know! My gut says no but after all the recent Exile re-issue hype my head says yes!

There are a lot of great Stones albums. I just don't know.

I love the Stones and I love a big number of their records but yes, Exile does stand above the others, IMO.

These are what I like to call the Big Four. To me, they're all equally great, and the peak of the Stones' career.
