2012 is the 50th Anniversary of The Rolling Stones, and to commemorate the occasion (yet another) Greatest Hits album is being released.
And like Forty Licks 10 years ago new compilation Grrr! has some new tracks, the first of which is ‘Doom and Gloom’ released this week. I have to admit I am pleasantly surprised by the track.
I am a pretty big fan of the Stones and own all their albums, have seen them live many times, and yes, yes I have bought the t-shirt too. Somehow though I just didn’t expect big things from the new material. Perhaps it was my complete feeling of “meh” when A Bigger Bang was released in 2005. That album did nothing for me.
Still, with fifty years behind them this year they have pulled a bit of a corker out of the bag with ‘Doom and Gloom’. Watch the lyric video and listen to it now.
