The Times (via I’ve heard Hackney Diamonds. It’s the best Rolling Stones album since 1978 by Will Hodgkinson (chief rock and pop critic). Here’s a short citation:

Variously poignant, irreverent, anarchic and, in one gospel-tinged moment, quite spiritual, it touches on all the aspects we love about the band, glued together by the rambunctious energy they have made their own since the early Sixties.

Irish Radio station Nova will report live from there: “Our own Dee Woods will join American TV host Jimmy Fallon at the live stream event where Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood will talk through their first album of original material in 18 years — since 2005’s “A Bigger Bang.” You can check their page for updates.
