In 1966 The Rolling Stones still in essence a singles band. But how exciting many of the first hits are, the band limited itself to a popstramien in which it actually doesn't belong. Aftermath is the first album to feature solely self-penned compositions, but still contains the necessary filler material. Stupid Girl, with his wife unfriendly text, is an inept attempt to shock. The macho song Under My Thumb succeeds there a lot better in. However, the essence of the band is not caught in the fine pop songs-such as Lady Jane (with Brian Jones on the sitar)-but in the simple rock and roll (Flight 505, it's Not Easy) and countrysongs (High & Dry). Only later, with the famous series of Beggars Banquet, Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile On Main Street, this approach to satisfying albums would suffer. Aftermath (' aftermath ') is what the title promises, the last remnant of the exciting early days of the Stones, in which the group still in two minds is: continue to do so with the fashionable popstroming led by The Beatles, or going out of the own strength. Fortunately they would choose for the last several years later. P.s. In the UK version of Aftermath is Paint It Black replaced by mother's Little Helper and are also Out Of Time and Take It Or Leave It On the tracklist. The sound quality of this hybrid super audio cd (also play on regular cd players) is considerably better than the first pressing on cd.

This is like the blueprint for the identity of the Rolling Stones. An important record and the best since their début, it's the first to only feature compositions penned by Jagger and Richards. There's a darker, bluesy, macho edge to the Stones that you just don't get with Lennon-McCartney, but there is plenty of variety in style and they are all great tunes.
