Their Satanic Majesties Request having considerable artistic merit to their discography beyond just being an artistic detour for the band. The album was a chance for the Rolling Stones to go beyond their usual blues rock and rhythm & blues influences. This psychedelic rock/pop album was their first and only real significant venture into experimental music, presenting the band at its most ambitious and artistically daring then it ever had been. The single and the most popular song off the album for the decades following this release “She’s a Rainbow,” although not avant- garde like some of the other songs off the album, exemplifies how the Rolling Stones were able to deliver an artistically eccentric yet eclectic work of art. The texture of the song, like what you would expect of an album as ambitious as it is, is quite thick and rich throughout.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
