The two hundred and fifteenth album: #215 The Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers

Any controversy aside, the Rolling Stones' drift between hard rock and blues rock has served it well. The blues part is always there, even when there's shouting and loud guitars, but for an album, being able to flow from loud Brown Sugar to sensitive country Wild Horses is a real boon as it manages to avoid a tone whiplash. It's a good mix between a few bangers, some amazing ballads and some good songs in between.
