The Rolling Stones: Goat's Head Soup

Greg Shaw, Phonograph Record, November 1973

THERE IS NOTHING GOOD about the new Rolling Stones album. No redeeming qualities whatsoever. Not even anything that can be turned around and stretched and imagined to signify something positive. Nothing at all. It's got the worst Stones cover ever, even if it is by David Bailey, the guy who did all those great early Beatles and Stones sleeves. Over the hill like the rest of 'em, and showing it to an embarrassing degree.
