Two words sum up this long-awaited album: rude health. Revelling in a dubiously un-sexagenarian vibe, A Bigger Bang (forget the risible claims that this refers to the origin of the universe) is stuffed with double-entendres ('I was your rooster, but now I'm just one of your cocks' - "Rough Justice") and dirty talk.

Songs like "Oh No Not You Again" are populated with bad 'boys' (ahem) being chased by badder girls, and delivered with that patent Chuck Berry-in-a-garage style. Charlie Watt's recent recovery seems confirmed by his fiery playing, while the obligatory track sung by Keith ("Infamy") should tug at any gnarly old heart strings.

It's certainly their best record since 1978s Some Girls, (despite Ronnie Wood's absence on 7 tracks) with only the anti-Bush "Sweet Neo-Con" jarring with its easy political target. They remain, thankfully, rock's most disreputable pensioners.
