- Old Shame: Mick Jagger and Keith Richards hated the album, although they like a few songs from it ("2000 Light Years from Home", "Citadel" and particularly, "She's a Rainbow", which appears on numerous compilations).
- Writing by the Seat of Your Pants: According to Brian Jones, a month before the album's planned release date the group "hadn't got anything put together":It's really like sort of got-together chaos. Because we all panicked a little, even as soon as a month before the release date that we had planned, we really hadn't got anything put together. We had all these great things that we'd done, but we couldn't possibly put it out as an album. And so we just got them together, and did a little bit of editing here and there.
