500 Greatest Albums of All Time

The Rolling Stones, 'Aftermath'

London, 1966

The first Stones album completely written by Jagger-Richards was full of bad-boy songs about Swinging London's overnight stars, groupies, hustlers and parasites. It's got tough riffs ("It's Not Easy"), girls seeking kicks ("Under My Thumb"), zooming psychedelia ("Paint It Black") and baroque-folk gallantry ("I Am Waiting").
