Mick Jagger's Solo Albums Getting Worse, Says ‘Rolling Stone’

Courtesy of Microsoft Excel 2003 Standard Edition

In this week's issue of Rolling Stone, senior editor David Fricke awards Mick Jagger's greatest-hits compilation The Very Best Of Mick Jagger an exceptional four and a half stars. Impressive, until you consider that the Rolling Stones front man's last solo album Goddess in the Doorway received a perfect score of five stars (in a review penned by Mick's buddy, RS editor-in-chief Jann Wenner) back in 2001. We can only assume that Very Best would have fared better if it had included more songs from Goddess in the Doorway.
