Rolling Stones Album Guide: The Good, the Great and the 'Angie'

A bluffer’s guide to the world’s greatest rock & roll Band

'Aftermath' (1966)


The Glimmer Twins arrive as genius songwriters, raising the ante on Dylan and the Beatles with their first full album of original tunes.

Key Track: "Paint It Black," a grown-up death drone driven by Jones' sitar.

Best Mick Moment: "Under My Thumb" is the ultimate rock & roll sneer, all jaded sarcasm and comic bravado.

Friendly Jab: The Beatles considered calling their next LP After Geography as a joking tribute to Aftermath.
