From Classic Rock to Progessive to hip hop to today's hot new tunes!

I almost wrote Stereophile a letter over this one...

...the reviewer constantly puts down the Stones version of the songs, comparing them to the originals, then gives it 4 out of 5 for Performance (which I agree with).

Then he goes on to give it 5 out of 5 for sonics - he must be listening on a table radio. 5 stars to me would indicate state-of-the-art recording quality.

This recording is so rough and ragged sounding I can hardly stand to listen to it.

It sounds like it was recorded in 1963 not 2016 which perhaps is the sound the Stones were going for - 3 stars for Sonics at the most.

What the hell was he thinking?
