Yes I can totally see that. I mean by then the Beatles were pretty much calling it in and I read somewhere that for most of that album they were not even all together when recording the songs. I think they all just brought a sachel of their own songs into the studio and said right I've written this one so now lets record it...

On the other hand Exile is the Stones going back to their roots and making an album that is 100% them and and all their various influences and as a result I think the songs are better, the album is much more cohesive and it's a much tighter record because of it.

It's kind of like one band goofing around in a studio and one band playing something that they've lived with their whole lives and I think it shows.



I've only ever met 2 types of people who don't rate Exile, and that's Beatles fanboys and people who don't really have much interest in blues & early rock n roll anyway.

You got that right!

As much as I love The Beatles, I think the White album sounds like a collection of left over songs the band just threw together for the sake of putting an album out.

Though you have challenged me to revisit it.
So why is it boring?

Because it sounds like a tired version of the influences it is drawing from.

In some countries, they'd have you hanged in public for saying such blaspheme.

Well, if it's a crime to not like Yellow Submarine, hang me now.

Personally I thought in the context of what the Beatles were trying to accomplish at the time Yellow Submarine was a perfect fit. The song that left me scratching my head was All Together Now. Never liked the lyrics and never liked the music.
