AllMusic Review by Richie Unterberger
The evolution from blues to rock accelerated with the Rolling Stones' second American LP. They turned soul into guitar rock for the hits "It's All Over Now" and "Time Is on My Side" (the latter of which was their first American Top Ten single). "2120 South Michigan Avenue" is a great instrumental blues-rock jam; "Around and Around" is one of their best Chuck Berry covers; and "If You Need Me" reflects an increasing contemporary soul influence. On the other hand, the group originals (except for the propulsive "Empty Heart") are weak and derivative, indicating that the band still had a way to go before it could truly challenge the Beatles' throne.

    You say there's nothing you can do about "Indian Tech Scam", how about not using adfly until they start to give a shit.

    1. We've tried. We've tried using other links shorteners in the past but the problem with the others is that they require you to wait 10 seconds, you must enter a captua, the ads are even more obtrusive and you sometimes can't even skip to the link at all. I know it sucks babe but it's the best alternative we have. The problem here is that those jerks pay adfly for the space as if they're actually going to advertise legitimately. That's what makes it so hard for us to block or stop those annoying messages. We report as many as we can. Believe me, you're not alone in this, love. 😞
