Universal Music Group is pleased to announce the re-release of The Rolling Stones' album Exile On Main Street. Upon its release more than three decades ago, Exile On Main Street innovatively wove varying musical genres, instruments and even artists into a compelling rhythmic masterpiece.

The original 18-track double-album was recorded in various stages at multiple locations, including Olympic Studios in London, Keith Richards' mansion Nellcote in France and in Los Angeles where the literal "Main Street" influenced the album title. These atypical circumstances surrounding the recording process greatly affected the album's outcome which was highly reflective and influenced by the sociopolitical turbulence that marked the late '60s and early '70s. The Stones nixed the influences of a flower-child era and directed their creative process with edgier, excessive, "more is more" approach of the '70s. Exile reveals a sprawling mix of genres with undertones of blues, country, R&B and gospel mixed with lyrics that fervently demand for release and liberation.

This sounds more compressed any other version I have. It is also hard sounding with a flat soundstage. It sounds like it was sourced from the CD master at 16-bit 44.1kHz. A real disappointment for me: my 1980s era CD of this album sounds BETTER than this LP. Do it right next time!

I hate to be the first one to criticize this reissue but...what a bummer. It sounds pretty much the same as the CD. The packaging and pressing quality are nice, so collectors might be interested. But the sound is nothing to write home about. Apparently Fremer feels the same way: http://www.musicangle.com/album.php?id=874. Oh well.


FANTASTIC

I listened to my original copy first and then put on the new Exile and was blown away by the sound that came out of my speakers. The new Exile keeps the the original pressing's murky texture but manages to bring the bass, drums, and vocals into a new light. I am very happy with the new reissue of this classic album.
