Tattoo You by The Rolling Stones
Released: Aug 1981
Label: Capitol
Even though they were already smelly old bastards by this point, Tattoo You finds the Stones in top fighting form. The album was seen as a comeback when "Start Me Up" took over the airwaves in 1981, and for years Tattoo You was often characterized as the band's last gasp before the '80s effectively killed their sound. But "Hang Fire," "Worried About You," "Tops" -- these are some of the Stones' very best songs. Then there's "Little T&A." Amazingly, they had another critical resurgence up their sleeves (Voodoo Lounge, Bridges to Babylon).
