It's been a frustrating few years for fans of The Stone Roses and their awesomely gifted guitarist and chief songwriter, John Squire. At the time of the band's breakup in 1996, it was widely assumed that singer Ian Brown was a talentless nobody who'd swiftly disappear into obscurity while Squire (the only Roses member to be retained by Geffen after the split) would go on to bestride the world of rock like an all-conquering guitar god. The huge gulf in status between Brown and Squire and that time was shown by their two main live appearances in the summer of '96: Brown appeared at Reading with the shortlived Stone Roses Mark II (featuring Aziz Ibrahim on guitar - to be fair, he's almost as brilliant a guitarist as Squire, but critics and fans just weren't prepared to give a Squire-free Roses a chance) and was derided; Squire joined Oasis, then at the height of their powers and success, at Knebworth, and helped them end the evening with awesome renditions of "Champagne Supernova" and "I Am the Walrus". Brown, it seemed, was yesterday's man, while Squire was the future.
In fact, things played out the opposite way. Starting with 1998's "Unfinished Monkey Business", Brown released three solo albums that, stunningly, were actually pretty darn good, and suggested that he, and not Squire, had retained the soul and spirit of the Roses. A review in a British music weekly proclaimed that, while Brown was not as talented as Squire, at least, unlike Squire, he wasn't making "safe, conservative" music.

Well, the sensitive dude John made his second single album. I don't want to talk more about the roses, seahorses or his first album here. But just one thing I have to say: although roses was a band with 4 people, it had been always this guy, the guy with a quiet-looking and unruly blood, who gave the band a soul. He's not only a great guitarist, but also an outstanding album maker.

If you're still trying to find "a roses' ghost" in his music today, well, you will not be satisfied with his current music pattern. Even if roses were still there by now, John - the leader of it - would be practicing his old magic art like always, to keep the band changing, and I'm pretty sure no one could keep him away from practicing the plans in his mind. Now he stands alone in the studio, he got no barrier.

<Marshall's house> is to some extent just like <stone roses>. It's something brand new. The idea and the method are both already very mature, and become a new style, --in spite of a short making-term. 20 years passing by, John's style went from simple to rich and go back to purifying again. And that is the beauty of this album.

If you don't like John's albums because of his rough voice, I get it. But as a singer, I applaud his singing attitude, and the ability to express the mood and idea in the songs. It's just brilliant and experienced.

Time never goes back. We could just look forwards. It's not words to comfort the heart, no, it's just the reality, and let's face it strongly. To repeat the trail of roses is not smart and not the right thing to do. What John accomplished is a progress of fulfilling himself, not a roses-journey again.

as a huge Stone Roses fan, believe me i wanted to like this album. and i do dig John's guitar work and song structures, it's just his vocal stylings that i can't get into. as someone who is so softspoken its hard for me to believe that that's actually John singing. and i have nothing against croaking type of vocals. i'm a big Dinosaur Jr. fan. but what worked for J. Mascis, does'nt work for John unfortunately. i had hoped that "time would change everything" this time around, but that album's vocals and this one's are virtually the same. that being said "Cape Cod Morning" and "Gas" are quite good and deserve a listen. where's Reni??
