The Rolling Stones – “Doom and Gloom” – (2012)

Geriatrics they may be (try to focus on Noomi Rapace in the music video and not the band) the Stones can apparently still throw together a pretty solid rock-n-roll track. This is the first time that Jagger, Richards, Watts and Wood have been in the studio together in seven years. And Mick Jagger’s voice is still very awkward when he has to hold a vowel (gloooooooom) – but that’s always been the case. The point being: had I not known better, I would’ve guessed this song was much older than it actually is. Because it’s brand new (end of 2012). The biggest downside? If you want the “new” album, you have to buy a glorified Greatest Hits album. I think the Rolling Stones have now put out as many Greatest Hits albums as they have original ones.
