Recuerdo cuando compre, nada mas salir, este disco en una tienda de Vic. Nos desplazamos expresamente para adquirirlo en el verano del 74. Lo pinche en el tocadiscos del garage donde nos reuniamos, y despues de escucharlo nos quedamos mirando sin decir nada. Era fantastico. El disco se abre con "If You Can Rock Me", un rock rabioso que mantiene un riff agresivo y machacon, pura dinamita que nos prepara para lo que vendra despues. "Luxury" y "Dance little sister" son otras muestras del poder de Richards para componer temas sencillos y directos. En este disco tocaba Mike Taylor la guitarra solista, y por mi podia haber seguido en lugar de Wood. Taylor le da un contrapunto a la agresividad de Keith y suaviza el sonido. En este disco se destapa como un magistral guitarrista, emulando a Santana en "Time waits for no one", un tema sensacional con un solo de mas de 2 minutos, fantastico. El disco se cierra con "Fingerprint File", con aires funk y mucho wa-wa, un tema muy bien concebido y que cierra uno de los ultimos grandes discos de los Stones. Despues llego "Black & Blue", disco que me decepciono profundamente.


It's Only Rock 'N' Roll find the Stones picking up the tempo after the slower more subdued Goats Head Soup. The album opens with a challenge in the rollicking "If You Can Rock Me". The band moves into a spirited cover of the Temptations classic "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" which stands up well next to the original. The title cut has the classic line that sums up the band's attitude, "I know it's only rock n roll, but I like it". "Till The Next Goodbye" is one of the prettiest songs the band has ever done and "Time Waits For No One" finds them in a pensive mood. The album kind of sags a little bit after that with throwaways like "Short & Curlies" & "If You Really Want...", but closes strongly with the funk workout "Fingerprint Files". The album keeps a trend that started on Goats Head Soup and one that the band would follow for much of the rest of their career (with a few exceptions), some very strong and good songs mixed in with filler.
