I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

I need to listen to more of these records, or I should like the Stones more. I'd say Exile is better than Fingers, I guess, but my memories are vague.

Yay for polls!

Exile is my stock answer, but lately I've been smitten with Beggars Banquet. A strong case can also be made for Let It Bleed. I'll get back to you.

It's always between Sticky and Exile and I usually pick the former because there are four songs on it that are in my top 10-40 songs of all time and there are a lot on the latter that I skip.

As much as I love "Sway", "Wild Horses", and "Moonlight Mile", for me Sticky isn't in the top tier with Exile, Bleed, and Beggars. The jam band part of "Can't You Hear me Knocking" frustrates me so much after the killer first 3 minutes. Also, "Sister Morphine" is never as good as I want it to be.

While I agree with everyone that Bleed and Beggars are first tier RS records, it's more of an appreciation rather than love like I have for Sticky and Exile.  (There are songs on Bleed and Beggar that I love.)  As far as my feelings go, I choose Sticky and Exile by a wide margin. In my mind, the jam band part of CYHMK doesn't exist.  Sister M feels so cinematic to me.  I feel like making a film whenever I listen it.

Darn you, that's what I want from it!

Just to clarify, for me Sticky is only a notch below that top level.

I need to listen to more Stones. Anyways, I went with Let It Bleed. As much as I love Exile, Let it Bleed has a top 5 of all time song so....Had to do it.

You'll see the light one day and feel that it's a really great song.
