Lots of bands suddenly turned shit in the mid 80s. I blame production methods and cocaine.
I blame it all on learning a fourth chord.

R.E.M. took a serious downturn when pursued/achieved a wider audience. Automatic for the People and Green excepted, you could cobble together an album of their best songs from their Warners years and it wouldn't be better than any single IRS album.

A fourth is just an inverted fifth you haven't met.

In light of Mick's recent health scare...I've been spinning the Stones over the past few days. Thoughts on the Stones in the 70's? The decade where they became tax exiles, Mick became a full fledged member of the jet set, and Keith sunk deeper and deeper into drug addiction.

My opinion is that while some of their releases from the decade were spotty and messy...they really didn't put out a bad album. In fact, I think it was a pretty darned good run of albums.

My Stones love ends in 1969. There's a few good songs dotted about during the 70s, but their post-1983 output is mostly terrible.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

The excesses could make their albums a bit more uneven (the decadence that worked on Exile couldn't really be replicated again), but they still put out killer singles and overall decent records through at least '81, I think. Looking over tracklists, I'm not sure the Stones have ever put out a truly bad record in the way that some other beloved artists have, even through the 80s or 90s (not that I ever really reach for those records, but nothing stands out as aesthetically offensive the way some of, say, McCartney, Bowie or Dylan's lowest lows register).

At what point, however? I think that changes depending on the listener. Undercover is probably the last album I listen to on a regular basis. There isn't much that came after that which I find interesting - maybe a handful of stray tracks.

I agree with this. Dirty Work - which I think most fans would consider their most lackluster release - isn't terrible. It's not good - but I can listen to is and not want to throw the LP across the room.

My biggest complaint with the band post-1983 is that they seem to have stopped trying to grow artistically. The songs just started to sound the same.
