Keith Richards fell in love with her too, and their romantic triad realigned the precarious political axis within the Stones. Aftermath is the first Stones LP to have all-original material by the group. The plan was abandoned after Jagger met the potential director, Nicholas Ray , and disliked him. This time we were able to relax a little, take our time. Wyman recalled that Nitzsche and Jones would pick up instruments that were in the studio and experiment with sounds for each song.
According to Jagger, Richards was writing a lot of melodies and the group would perform them in different ways, which were mainly thought out in the studio. Jones proved important in shaping the album's tone and arrangements, as he experimented with instruments that were unusual in popular music , such as the marimba , sitar and Appalachian dulcimer.
During the recording sessions, Richards and Oldham dismissed Jones' interest in exotic instrumentation as an affectation.
Because of Jones' distractions, Richards ended up playing most of the guitar parts for Aftermath , making it one of the first albums to have him do so. Richards later said he found the challenge musically rewarding but resented Jones for his unprofessional attitude when the band were under extreme pressure to record and maintain a hectic touring schedule. According to the musicologist David Malvinni, Aftermath is the culmination of the Rolling Stones' stylistic development dating back to , a synthesis of previously explored sounds from the blues , rock and roll , rhythm and blues , soul , folk rock and pop ballads.
Along with their follow-up, Between the Buttons , Aftermath is cited by Malvinni as part of the Rolling Stones' pop-rock period as it features a chordal range more diverse and inclusive of minor chords than their blues-based recordings. Citing individual songs, Rolling Stone describes Aftermath as "an expansive collection of tough riffs 'It's Not Easy' and tougher acoustic blues 'High and Dry' ; of zooming psychedelia 'Paint It, Black' , baroque-folk gallantry 'I Am Waiting' and epic groove the eleven minutes of ' Goin' Home ' ".
He also notes how Richards' guitar riff and solo on the latter track are "minimalistic, in a fairly low tessitura and relatively emotionless", compared to previous Stones hits like " I Can't Get No Satisfaction", "Get Off of My Cloud" and "19th Nervous Breakdown". Aftermath ' s diverse musical style contrasts the dark themes explored in Jagger and Richards' lyrics, which often scorn female lovers. Margotin and Gueson say that Jagger, who had been accused of misogyny before the album, is avenging real-life grievances with the songs, using "language and imagery that had the power to hurt".
Not all dumb, not by any means, but that's how one got. You got really cut off. In Guesdon and Margotin's view, the Stones express a more compassionate attitude towards women in "Mother's Little Helper", which examines a housewife 's reliance on pharmaceutical drugs to cope with her daily life, and in "Lady Jane"'s story of romantic courtship. Overall, the darker themes lead Margotin and Guesdon to call Aftermath "a sombre album in which desolation, paranoia, despair and frustration are echoed as track succeeds track".
Misogyny, as on "Under My Thumb", "may be just a tool for restoring the fragile narcissism and arrogance of the male narrator", muses the music scholar Norma Coates.
It may also be read "as part of a dark male fantasy world, perhaps constructed as a means of dealing with loneliness caused by a broken relationship or a series of broken relationships with women. However, the band uses musical connections between songs as well as the subtheme of travel, the use of feline metaphors for women and other lyrical connections to suggest that the characters whom lead singer Mick Jagger portrays throughout the album are really one and perhaps stem from the deep recesses of his psyche.
According to the music historian Simon Philo, like all the Stones' releases, Aftermath also reflects the band's "engagement" with Swinging London, a scene in which their decadent image afforded them a pre-eminent role by capturing the meritocratic ideals of youth, looks and wealth over social class. The band's misgivings about their rock stardom are also touched on, including relentless concert tours in "Goin' Home" and fans who imitate them in "Doncha Bother Me", in which Jagger sings, "The lines around my eyes are protected by copyright law".
The title controversy embroiled the Stones in a conflict with Decca, delaying Aftermath ' s release from March to April Rejected by Decca, the packaging was used instead for the US version of Big Hits , albeit with a cover showing the band standing on the shore of the reservoir.
The front cover photo for Aftermath ' s British release was taken by Guy Webster and the cover design was done by Oldham, credited as "Sandy Beach". For the American edition's cover, David Bailey took a colour photo of Jones and Richards in front of Jagger, Watts and Wyman, and set it against a blurred black background.
According to Margotin and Guesdon, the photo was intentionally blurred as "an allusion to the psychedelic movement" and "corresponds better to the Stones' new artistic direction". Aftermath ' s release was preceded by the Rolling Stones' two-week tour of Europe, which began on 25 March It stayed on the chart for 28 weeks.
By 13 August, it had risen to number 2 behind the Beatles' Yesterday and Today. Aftermath received highly favourable reviews in the music press.
Green said the music is unmistakably rock and roll and was especially impressed by Watts' drumming. The magazine's reviewer applauded its focus "on big beat, power and interesting 'sounds'", noting how the use of dulcimer, sitar, organ, harpsichord, marimba and fuzz boxes creates an "overwhelming variety of atmospherics and tones".
While the lyrics' derisive attitude to women offended some listeners, this aspect received little attention in the British pop press or complaints from female fans. He said that the Stones' "archetypal girl", as first introduced in their song " Play with Fire ", was "rich, spoiled, confused, weak, using drugs, etc. He said that in songs such as "Stupid Girl" and "Under My Thumb", the Stones had "defied a central taboo of the social system" and that "they have done so in the most radical and unacceptable way possible: by celebrating it.
Some feminist writers defended Jagger's stance in "Under My Thumb". The reason — they attempt to sing.
