Bridges To Babylon took to Stones on a journey to a darker sound.
The album sold 1.1 million copies in America and topped the charts in Austria, Germany, Norway and Sweden, made no.2 in Belgium, Canada, France and the Netherlands. Recorded in Los Angeles between March and July 1997, the album featured a darker sound for the band on tracks like ‘Anybody Seen My Baby’, ‘Thief In The Night’ and ‘Gunface’. ‘Saint Of Me’ highlights Jagger’s unique strengths as a lyricist and the words are a latter answer to ‘Sympathy For The Devil’ and ‘Undercover Of The Night’. Keith gives sublime lead vocals on the reggae-inspired ‘You Don’t Have To Mean It’, a truly romantic track.
