To my music-loving opinion this has got to be the best Stones album to date. Even one of the most brilliant rockalbums ever released.
I must say I wasn't around when the lads rose to fame, stardom and legendary proportions back in the sixties, and I most certainly do consider that period to be a highlight of their career, but what you can hear on Bridges is the stunning result of over 140 years of music-making experience between the four bandmembers, together with an even longer span of combined life-experience of over two centuries and that produced the ultimate and most mature rock album ever.
This is as Rock as it's gonna get!
