Licked Live in NYC, recorded live at Madison Square Garden in January 2003, represented a milestone at the time, part of a world tour/victory lap that spawned 117 shows in celebration of the band’s 40th anniversary. It’s hardly surprising that they were still in top form; after all, the Stones are not only a well-oiled machine but a seemingly invincible one at that. What’s most impressive is that not only were they so formidable a full four decades on, but now, some two decades beyond that, they’re still as unstoppable as ever.

If one was to judge their dexterity simply on the strength of the set list—one that includes such timeless standards as “Street Fighting Man,” “Start Me Up,” “Honky Tonk Woman,” “It’s Only Rock and Roll (But I Like It),” “Angie,” “Let It Bleed,” and—natch—“Satisfaction,” that becomes a foregone conclusion. For the most part, save for the inclusion of a few newer songs, Licked Live in NYC and Get Yer Ya Yas Out (1970) have far more in common than the span of 32 years might suggest.
