The Rolling Stones - Exile on Main St.

Exile on Main St. is a pivotal moment in rock history. It is, for a minority of indie elitists, the moment when the Rolling Stones finally passed the point of ever being good again, and descended into self-parodic cocaine-addled, loutish overindulgence. For most human beings on the planet, though, it's the record with which the Stones ensured their place as one of the greatest rock 'n' roll bands in the world, with its rootsy, rough-edged borrowings from blues, gospel, primal rock 'n' roll, soul, and country. Launching the album is the mammoth "Rocks Off", a declaration of intent if ever there was one.

The systematic remastering of Jagger, Richards and Co.'s back catalog has finally caught up to 1972,  and expectations are high that this the definitive version of Exile on Main St. (with its original track listing, at any rate).
