what is the artsiest, bravest, edgiest thing the Stones have done in the last 30 years?

When have they pushed their art to the edge? When have they taken a chance?

Continental Drift on Steel Wheels springs to mind.

So too does How Can I Stop on B2B.

Thru And Thru - especially the outtake version with all those haywire guitars and synths going off in the background. Sounds like some tripped out nightmare.

The live version of Out of Control was brilliant. Pretty Beat Up has a unique Stones groove.

Highwire was an acute comment at the time (as well as a killer single).

2000 Light Years live was bold.

Opening with Not Fade Away was gutsy.

The Wandering Spirit solo tour of America was ballsy (oh wait, that didn't happen)

Sendittome, this is a really good thread idea. In itself, kind of gutsy.
I'd say the double shot of "Thief in the Night/How Can I Stop" to close out B2B was a great call.
Also "Stripped" was a good album and idea. It could have been even better.
Oh - "Plundered my Soul" - yes.
The whole 'Undercover' album has some challenging sounds.
The year of the trio "Wandering Spirit/Slide On This/Main Offender" was a glorious year for me.
Standing up for Justin Timberlake was cool.

To be honest, I don't think the Stones have done anything braver than they did around 1964. That's when they set the trends, when they dedicated themselves to playing the blues they loved and going on stage without suits. Doing Little Red Rooster on tv.

In the mid-60's they started to kind of follow Dylan and the Beatles with the folkish pop and songwriting, and you could argue that they haven't done anything "brave" since.

Except -- they've always done what they felt like, even if it meant that they were following trends and aping other artists.

Ultimately, the bravest thing they've done in the last 30 years, or the last 45 years, is to just soldier on and continue to play, record and tour in spite of what everybody says about them.

Undercover album the artsiest
Undercover of the Night song the edgiest
promoting Streets of Love on a daytime soap opera the bravest (as well as the stupidest)

Undercover as a single.
Brilliant, timely, edgy and funky.

Bridges To Babylon, Stripped, opening the vaults for Exile, L&G, Some Girls, Live In Texas, and Brussels affair. I could care less about Hampton though.

Don't know what I'd add to what's here, but I really was impressed in '89 with the trio of Paint It, Black, 2000 Light Years, and Symphathy. I thought that was really nicely done.

I feel like some of the Mick stuff on B2B was trying too hard.

I would agree about Stripped.

I also think "Laugh I Nearly Cried" was a good stab.

In 2005 playing on the Juillard's balcony, just the quintessential quintet, without safety net; they could have crashed but they didn't. That was a cool mini show right there. I will always love them.

I thought it was pretty interesting for them to cover Dylan's "Like A Rolling Stone" and for Mick to put his own harmonica stamp on it, and turn it into a blues harp thing. I think artistically speaking, this is one of the more creative things they have done in 30 years.

I'll agree that the Julliard performance as a simple quintet took some balls. I'm not so sure they totally avoided crashing. It was rough, and the audience seemed incredibly bored by it all. As I recall looking back on it now, anyway.

Although it's become "the thing to do" and therefore maybe not "edgy or artsy" but the Super Bowl in 2006 was certainly somewhat brave. Especially for the Stones, who are more apt than most bands (these days) to crash and burn. They performed well there, under what had to be some intense pressure.

Trucking on in '99 after the B2B tour - right into the slightly more adventurous '99 tour.
Anyone know why they really did that?
