* MagnumOpusDissonance: According to Richards' autobiography, Jagger looked at ''Music/ExileOnMainSt'' as just another album. It also took awhile for its reputation to build.

* SeasonalRot: Some fans say they haven't been good for a long time. The most frequently cited "last good/great album" is ''Tattoo You'', while many listeners and critics cite ''Music/SomeGirls'' as the band's last genuine masterpiece.

** A slightly more complicated example would be "As Tears Go By" and "Wild Horses" (''Music/ExileOnMainSt''). Jagger and Richards wrote those songs, and the Stones' versions are definitive, but in both cases they were preceded by cover versions - they donated "Tears" to Music/MarianneFaithfull before recording it themselves, while Gram Parsons convinced them to let his band The Flying Burrito Brothers cover the already-recorded "Wild Horses", and their version was released a year before the Stones' own.

** One suspected reason for his survival is that he has a very rare genetic mutation that renders him largely immune to the negative side effects of those drugs. Richards himself also notes in his autobiography that he always took special care to avoid increasing his dosage, which many drug users do not avoid doing and which is a sure way to increase one's risk of overdose (though it's still a risk even if one does exercise that much self-control, since the consistency of drugs can vary and thus it's not possible to be certain how much, or for that matter even ''what'', one is taking).

To be fair, his genetic mutation also may be one reason he was even able to exercise that much self-control in the first place.
