Some Girls is the fourteenth studio album by English rock band The Rolling Stones, originally released in June 1978 via Rolling Stones Records.

During the mid-'70s, The Rolling Stones remained massively popular, but their records suffered from Jagger's fascination with celebrity and Keith's worsening drug habit. By 1978, both punk and disco had swept the group off the front pages, and Some Girls was their fiery response to the younger generation.

Opening with the disco-blues thump of "Miss You", Some Girls is a tough, focused, and exciting record, full of more hooks and energy than any Stones record since Exile On Main St. Even though the Stones make disco their own, they never quite take punk on their own ground. Instead, their rockers sound harder and nastier than they have in years.

Using "Star Star" as a template, the Stones run through the seedy imagery of "When The Whip Comes Down", the bizarre vitriol of the title track, Keith's ultimate outlaw anthem, "Before They Make Me Run", and the decadent closer, "Shattered". In between, they deconstruct the Temptations' "(Just My) Imagination", unleash the devastatingly snide country parody "Far Away Eyes", and contribute "Beast Of Burden", one of their very best ballads.

Some Girls may not have the back-street aggression of their '60s records, or the majestic, drugged-out murk of their early-'70s work, but its brand of glitzy, decadent hard rock still makes it a definitive Stones album.

Check out the album singles: “Miss You”: “Beast Of Burden”; “Respectable” and “Shattered”.

This 2010 reissued LP featuring the 2009 remastered audio is on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl, with a printed inner sleeve (external sleeve does not have die-cut peep holes), pressed in Europe.
