It's difficult for American listeners to remember this, but like the recordings of the Beatles and nearly all other British groups of the '60s, the Rolling Stones' first several albums did not make it across the Atlantic in one piece. Prior to ABKCO's comprehensive 2002 reissue program, the US versions of the Stones' early albums were the de facto standards on CD, but particularly in the case of 1966's AFTERMATH, the UK album was very different. The track lineup is shuffled and expanded to create a much different mood. "Paint It Black" is gone, replaced as the opening track by the snotty social commentary of "Mother's Little Helper," which--when followed by "Stupid Girl," "Lady Jane," "Under My Thumb," and "Dontcha Bother Me"--is like a pentathlon of punky misogyny capped by the grinding blues jam "Goin' Home." Side Two is more emotionally varied but just as musically far-reaching, adding the poppy "Take It Or Leave It" and "What To Do" to an already strong set of tunes centered on the stunning full-length version of "Out of Time" that for some reason had never been released in the United States before this belated reissue. Editorial reviews Ranked #2 in Rolling Stone's 50 Coolest Records - ...The sauciest Mick, the broodiest Keith, the prettiest Brian, the funkiest Bill and Charlie - now and forever Charlie... Rolling Stone (04/11/2002) ...[While] available in both US and UK versions, opt for the Brit take, which includes extras like the biting parental put-down 'Mother's Little Helper'... - Rating: A- Entertainment Weekly (09/20/2002) 7 (out of 10) - ...a pivotal Stones album, with Brian Jones continuing to progress as a musician. `Under My Thumb' is perhaps the group's most perfect pop song to date, `Stupid Girl' hints at the sleazy rockers ahead...
