Rolling Stones - Honk

Arie van der Graaf Format: Album
Release date: 2019-04-19
Label: Universal Music
Genre: Classic Rock
Artist discography


The Rolling Stones together with KISS are champions in releasing Best Off albums.

We are counting 25 since Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass), their first singles collection.

Since 1966 we have seen essential releases such as Hot Rocks 1964-1971, Jump Back (1971-1993) and most recently GRRR! (1964-2012). So the question is, why do we need another one?

Honk, like many other Best off releases has the obvious “Brown Sugar”, “Miss You” and “Wild Horses”. So nothing new there.

What Honk does offer are tracks like “Doom and Gloom” and the blues cover “Ride ‘Em on Down”, which can be considered as some of their best work since 1980.

On the 3 disc version, disc 3 holds previously unreleased live recordings, which also features guest vocals of Ed Sheeran on “Beast of Burden” and Brad Paisley on “Dead Flowers”.

Now oldschool Stones fans might not like these pop guests on a Rolling Stones album but hey, it is a compilation compilation.

Just see disc 3 as an extra with some cool live performances whether you like the pop guests or not. I must admit the natural Stones live flow is a bit lost because of them.
