Writing on AllMusic.com, one of our most trusted rock writers Richie Unterberger refers to the Rolling Stones‘ 1967 album Their Satanic Majesties Request as “… a fascinating anomaly in the group’s discography.” Four significant things occurred to explain in part why the follow up in late 1968, Beggars Banquet, sounds so completely different: 1) Stones […]
