Let It Steal Your Heart Away
Possibly one of my top 5 Stones songs. I was listening to Exile last night, marveling at how gritty, and disjointed, and marvelously enchantingly rough it sounds. Makes me think about what makes an album a classic, and how sometimes technical perfection needs to give way to letting a mood take over.
Some albums just run on feeling. They build this sonic bubble of mood around you, and you're locked into that moment in time. And sometimes, those moments transcend and become definitions of what makes an art form great. Exile is one of those moments. It's gorgeous in its seediness.
Just as long as the guitar plays,
let it steal your heart away...
