Simple enough question. I have never gotten a consensus on this when asked in other locations. Could ILM be different?! (probably not)

Anyway, here's how mine would go:

1. Exile on Main Street
2. Let It Bleed
3. Sticky Fingers
4. Beggars Banquet

Clearly all classics though. Let it Bleed and Sticky Fingers might switch places on any given day, but the first and last are set in place.

It is tough for me to put an album with Jigsaw Puzzle and No Expectations in last place on any list. That said, I agree with the above.

The real question is whether this thread will end at 4! = 24 posts + 1 for my interference.

    Because this is the mother of all hot streaks in the history of rock and roll, ILM has hired the accounting firm of Price Waterhouse to tally the aggregate scores.

    Scoring: 4 points for a first place, 3 for 2nd, etc.

    1. Exile On Main Street 61
    2. Let It Bleed (53)
    3. Beggar's Banquet (44)
    4. Sticky Fingers (42)

    let sticky fingers bleed at the beggar's banquet on main street

    (my knowledge of the stones' catalog does seem to run together like that)

    Sticky Fingers is great and all, but there are a lot of Stones albums I like better. Including Aftermath and Between the Buttons. (And Some Girls and Now!)

    They are all brilliant and there is no need to rank them against each other.

    2 & 3 can alternate depending on my mood; 1 & 4 are set in stone

    Just curious -- are these kind of threads fun for people? I don't really get it. Please ignore me if this is an unwelcome intrusion.

    I think this one's interesting. I'm a little surprised at how poorly Beggars Banquet is doing - would have expected the average to come out as:

    Exile
    Beggars
    Let It Bleed
    Sticky Fingers

    It's funny, I adore adore adore LIB, BB, and Exile, and I have never liked Sticky Fingers aside from a couple of songs. I know it's part of their classic quartet and all, but I just cannot get into it.

    haha thanks for pinpointing the source of my problem, Alfred. (I like "Sway," actually; "Moonlight Mile" I am chronically incapable of paying attention to--zzzzzzzzz.)

    It's all good. I have the same problem with "Wild Horses" (maybe the Sundays spoiled it for me).
