Ten Storey Love Song is one of my favorites in Roses' catalogue.
W. Joo
That being said, I can't believe how this album was slagged off by just about everyone when it came out.
W. W. Sperger
Most Stone Roses fans prefer the 1989 debut album over "Second Coming."

How do you follow up one of the most influential modern rock albums, a universally beloved debut? Well... you can't. Sadly, the Stone Roses couldn't either, several years after their legendary self-titled debut. But after several years, "Second Coming" has gotten over its initial bad rap, and proved itself a solid -- though not stellar -- piece of Brit-rock.

A rising chord seeps into a growling bassline... followed by water trickling and some distant bird songs. "Breaking Into Heaven," is probably the most memorable part of the whole album, especially when it rises into some jungle drums, then a funky rock rhythm. The eleven-minute intro alone has more variety than most rock bands can manage in a whole album.

And after the intro? The fiery rock of "Driving South," funkiness of "Daybreak," or the acoustic-led sweetness of "Your Star Will Shine" and "Tightrope." There are dips into pop, hard rock, and the occasional nod to Led Zeppelin's famous riffs. It ends on a robust note with "Love Spreads," not the best Stone Roses song but a likable, grounded one.

If video killed the radio star, then success killed the Stone Roses. They disbanded shortly after "Second Coming" was given a disappointing reception, and after a nasty lawsuit from their record company. But time has been kind to the sophomore album. Sure, okay, it's not as good as the self-titled debut -- but it is a good rock album in its own right, inventive and sometimes a little insane.

John Squire's guitar contortions are what you really notice about the music -- he can do mellow acoustic strumming in one song, then Zeppelin-style riffs that tear your throat out.

After the phenomenal success in the UK of their 1989 self-titled debut, the Stone Roses should've capitalised on their success and recorded a follow-up album a year or two later. Instead, the band got tangled up in legal problems with their record label (though I don't know the details), which would sideline the group for five long years. When the smoke *finally* cleared in 1994, with the Stone Roses having switched over to Geffen Records, they finally released their long-awaited second album, appropriately-titled "Second Coming." Unfortunately, in the five years that the Stone Roses had been away, it seemed that time had passed them by. Oasis were now the UK's #1 group, and reaction to "Second Coming," both in sales and fan & critical response, was disappointing. The Stone Roses disbanded shortly afterwards, and since then, "Second Coming" seems to have been forgotten. It doesn't deserve to be---"Second Coming" is an outstanding album that I, personally, like even *better* than the band's celebrated 1989 debut, though brilliant that album is. I guess this makes me a "twisted" Stone Roses fan, but seriously, people, I LOVE this album. Nevermind the ridiculous criticism or disappointing sales---"Second Coming" is a fantastic, powerful piece of work, and one of my all-time favorite albums. For "Second Coming," the Stone Roses branched out into rock music even more experimental than on their debut disc, combining even more abundant elements of pop, psychedelia, dance, acoustic, progressive, and Zeppelin-esque hard rock.Read more ›

This album puts a HUGE majority of albums to shame with it's virtuosity, lyrics, melody, beauty and art. It is SO overlooked and underappreciated that it should be considered a crime against humanity.
I really have to respectfully submit a theory that those who don't like this CD had expectations problems from the first release. This CD is not "The Stone Roses Part II" it is a new direction with hints at the old direction (listen: "Ten Storey Love Song").
This is a BIG slice of funk, blues, pop, and rock that would make any rock music fan drool endlessly. I am so sad that this CD is not listened to and admired as it should be. From the opening jungle sounds, betraying the (ultimately) African (or African American) influences which shaped this wonder to the final guitar soloing, breathy singing of Ian Brown, and rollicking bassline of "Love Spreads", this CD is full of quality art.
Please, if you discovered the Stone Roses late or just never picked this up, pick it up and listen to it as a work of art. An independent CD not related to the first CD in any but the smallest ways.
Let me put you in the picture,
let me show you what I mean.
The messiah is my sister,
ain't no king man, she's my queen!
Thank you Stone Roses for giving us this beautiful CD and all the other wonderful music you created!

The Stone Roses eponymous first album deserved all the accolades it got (and still gets). One of my all time favorites. Superlative. Sublime. Alright, already.

That being said, I can't believe how this album was slagged off by just about everyone when it came out.

Granted, it took forever for it to be released, no fault of the band's. (Goddamn label woes).

But this thing rocks - John Squire has taken over the reins and look out !

If you separate the rest of the bands tunes from Squires, you have two different albums.

Ignore the second half of Side one and the first third of Side two, and you have songs that rival anything on the first album.

"Ten Storey Love Song" is phenomenal and should be playing on every radio station as we speak.

But what makes it for me, is the last four songs on side two.

"Good Times" - BAM ! - Squire lets loose with a fantastic, ending solo that seems to go on forever.

"Tears" - BAM ! - a slow, midtempo rocker that gains steam and feeling with one of Ian Brown's more arresting vocals giving way to another Squire signature guitar solo with feeling. (You can tell Squire is just itching to break out from the Roses into solo territory which did eventually lead to him forming another band soon after their disintegration).

"How do you Sleep" - BAM ! - a great kiss off to those bastards at Silvertone (title courtesy of John Lennon).

"Love Spreads" - BAM ! - the college radio hit that still gets played, thankfully letting people know there was more to the Stone Roses than one album.
