NME (Magazine) - 7/8/95, p.466 (out of 10) - "...The Stones of '64 and '65 may not have been the world's most accomplished musicians, but they were lean and hungry. There's a lippy arrogance that's best illustrated on ROLLING STONES NOW!, in particular the pasty-faced soul of 'Pain In My Heart' and the R&B plod of 'Off The Hook'..."

THE ROLLING STONES, NOW! is a masterpiece of early British R&B, Rolling Stones style. Things start off with a powerful rendition of Solomon Burke's signature tune "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love." Elsewhere, the Stones take a tour of American music, from Bo Diddley's "Mona," complete with choppy, reverbed guitar, to a slow, churning version of Willie Dixon's blues evergreen "Little Red Rooster," probably the first version of the song to feature fuzz bass.
Amid all this esteemed company, though, the standout tracks are the Jagger-Richards originals. With its heartbreaking lyrics and poignant accompaniment, "Heart of Stone" could have been a classic soul ballad appropriated from some great, obscure American singer. On "What a Shame," the Stones prove that they don't have to look to outside sources for their blues. Keith's penetrating slide here, as on "Little Red Rooster," foreshadows greater things to come.
