Plugged In Rating
From PluggedIn Review:
Gimme Shelter is about great kindness in the midst of severe suffering. It's about what a difference people can make under difficult circumstances. It's about courage, about growing up, about letting go of past pain in order to secure a better future. And it's about protecting children while they're unable to protect themselves—both 16-year-olds and 0-year-olds. It doesn't deny the awfulness that life throws at us sometimes. It just says that if we look hard enough (and accept God's guidance here and there), we can find our way … well, to shelter.
