Rolling Stones - Dirty Work (1986) Retail CD
Rock & Roll
Usually offered up as "The Stones' nadir" and recorded amongst a maelstrom of in-fighting resulting from Mick Jagger's swanning off to record his not half bad solo album, "She's The Boss". Richards and Jagger were supposedly "estranged" and much of this album is played by them separately, or with guitar parts taken by Ronnie Wood as on "One Hit To The Body", to great effect as it happens.
Of course this is The Rolling Stones, so the bar is high and, taking all things into account, this is nothing special in any way. How about forgetting it's The Stones and just listen to the album as an 80smore… rock album ? Then it becomes a bit better (if you can forget the drum machine, tape loops, synthesisers and hiedous cocver clothes!). Taken in isolation as the odd track popping up on your MP3 random selection for example, you will find they are far more listenable. The opening track, and "Harlem Shuffle" (a respectable cover), "Dirty Work", "Had It With You" and Keith's cod-reggae offering "Too Rude" are not nearly as bad as many have said.
Nevertheless, there is a despairing overall feel to the album when played through in full and this should be avoided. Just dip into it every now and again, no need to dismiss it completely. To appreciate a band properly you must take the rough with the smooth.
