We gave it a B

How do boomer rock stars The Rolling Stones attempt to snag a younger and older demographic at the same time? Start by shamelessly copping the chorus of k.d. lang’s ”Constant Craving” (for the grown-ups), add a rap shout-out middle section and have your singer use words like flava (for the kids), and recruit the Dust Brothers (for alternative-crowd cred) for ”Anybody Seen My Baby?” But damn if this trendy mess, with its growly ennui and yowling harmonies, isn’t hooky. The coffin creaks, a little. B
