I love Let It Bleed. "Gimmie Shelter" is right up there with "Gimme Danger" for being one the greatest songs of all time.
I loved the cover art too. I was obsessed with it as a little girl.
that run between Beggar's Banquet and Exile on Main St is fucking amazing. Throw in the fact that they released "Honky Tonk Women" and "Jumpin Jack Flash" as singles at the start of that run.. man
I voted Sticky Fingers. Usually I answer Exile, but fuck it, there's not a wasted second on Sticky Fingers.
Love many of the songs from Exile, but voted Let It Bleed as an album.
Also during that era they released get your ya ya's out, one of the greatest live albums of all time, which by the way might have the greatest guitar solo ever put to wax - mick T. On sympathy
How did Some Girls not get any love?
How many rubs do you think he did to plump that bad boy up on the Sticky Fingers album cover? Is that Mick's?
Prob not the best, but 12x5, spent many a time listening to that album growing up with my Dad.

Greatest ode to fucking slave women and heroin ever. Ever.
Tom, you asshole, when did you start working for Rolling Stone?
Like Paul said, I don't know if it's the "best" but I think I prefer Between the Buttons overall. Exile is spectacular, Let it Bleed, Beggars and Sticky Fingers are all A+ albums, but Between the Buttons, for me, just has a slightly experimental bent to it that gets me every time. It's the one I most consistently listen to. Favorite song is from Exile though: Ventilator Blues.
I voted Some Girls only because that '78 version of the King Biscuit Flower Hour was one of the best I ever owned......until that piece of shit Craig tapedeck in my '76 Duster swallowed it up.

flamingdouchelikecreature is more like it.
All fine choices, but as Let It Bleed includes "Monkey Man" Let it Bleed edges the others.
I wound up voting for Exile even though I gave serious consideration to that whole suite of 4 late 60s/early 70s albums.
Not one single vote for Beggar's Banquet though. That might be my second choice.
Let it bleed also includes 'You Got the Silver' my favorite Kieth song and 'Live with me' maybe Wyman's sickest bass line
Happy might be his best but silver is still my fav. I can't believe I never knew it was actually keith on bass. Thanks for the heads up. I also never realized that one of mick t.'s first contributions was on live with me
Where is Their Satanic Majesties?
It's only got like two or three good songs on it. Not on the list.
