Editorial Reviews

'Special Edition'. Digitally remastered 20th Anniversary edition of the classic debut album from the Manchester quartet, originally released in 1989. Meshing simple, exceedingly catchy hooks with rhythmic beats, The Stones Roses led the UK's so-called Madchester scene straight into the U.S. with their eponymous debut. The Stone Roses achieved one of the most successful fusions of classic Pop songwriting and Acid House culture, and managed to snare fans from both genres. By the end of 1989, their debut landed on many Top Ten lists for that year. Though the band never realized the same triumphs on their second and final album, repercussions of their debut album's classic pop songwriting and bright riffs could be heard well into the next decade.

Someone said it earlier and it is completely true - this album gets better and better after every listen. It is a truly rewarding experience to listen to this album, whether it is your first time or your hundredth (which I am approaching). As others have mentioned, this was the album that paved the way for Oasis, the Verve, Pulp (to a degree), Radiohead (also to a degree), Blur, and many other of the so-called "Brit Pop" bands.

"I Wanna Be Adored" may be the greatest opening track ever and then there is the sheer brilliance of "Waterfall" running into "Don't Stop" (they play a part of "Waterfall" backwards). Ian Brown, John Squire, Reni, and Mani came together one day and for that moment, they laid down some music that was never going to be equalled, no matter how hard they tried. "Second Coming" (which was a belated 5 year follow-up) is solid but no where near the album that "The Stone Roses" is. But how could it have been? "The Stone Roses" was an album to perfection.

Everyone who is into rock music or just music period needs this album in your collection. You don't have a serious collection without this one. I own over 1100 CDs and if I had to choose 5 albums to save from a fire, this one is there along with "A Tribute to Jack Johnson" by Miles, "Ultimate Blue Train" by Coltrane, "Animals" by Pink Floyd, and "Disintegration" by The Cure. Buy it today if you don't own it already.

People are starting to bash this CD. Please, they are all wet! This CD is PERFECT. EVERY second of this CD is absolutely amazing. Melodic, timeless(!!!), uplifting, thirst-quenching, day-breaking, love-making, soul saving. The guitar playing is flawless (see: JAMMING last 5 minutes of I Am The Resurrection). The airy vocals of Ian Brown (heard throughout). The driving bass (Fool's Gold/I Am The Resurrection) and ecstatic drums (She Bangs the Drums, This Is The One, Fool's Gold). There is not one dud in the whole group. I have listened to this CD HUNDREDS of times and it still makes me feel like life is perfect (although it is far from it).
If you like pop music. If you aren't a crabby, contrarian. (fragmented sentences for dramatic effect. ;) ) If you LOVE great tunes, BUY THIS CD and enrich your life. You'll thank me for gushing like this when you experience this work of genius. I am not being generous, I am being honest.

The Stone Roses were one of those bands who burned brightly... and all too briefly. Thankfully their presence has been long-lasting -- the music of their self-titled first album still lingers long after the breakup of the band. They captured lightning in a bottle, even if their first album's musical perfection was their downfall.

After the panoramic, rumbling buildup of "I Wanna Be Adored," the Roses catch you with rollicking, infectious rock songs and psychedelic trips. While sticking to strong pop melodies and rock instrumentation, the Roses manage to experiment around a bit -- the delicate "Waterfall" is literally turned backwards and replayed, in a song that is almost as good as the original.

The true rock rebellion shows in "Bye Bye Bad Man" with protests concerning French student riots ("Every backbone and heart you break/We'll still come back for more") and an acid-tinged anti-royalist song. Finishing up the unalloyed brilliance is the bitter, complicated "I Am the Resurrection," and the melodic "Fool's Gold" -- two of the best songs on the album.

The Stone Roses spread their influence far in this album -- there are soft ballad-like melodies, whirling psychedelic trips, and rock that rises, crests and slowly sinks. Expect your heartbeat to rise and sink with it -- because this music has a richness and depth that most rock music cannot even begin to equal.

John Squire's guitar riffs are flexible and fluid; it sounds like this guy was reinventing guitar licks all on his own. His shimmering guitar riffs of "Waterfall" are truly magnificent. The deep basslines will drawn you in whether you like it or not, as will Reni's outstanding drumming. Everything culminates in a wild, dense psychedelic mass in the overwhelming "I Am the Resurrection.

Two discs-59 and 64 minutes each approximately. There is a DVD included with this set,consisting of live footage from 1989 and six videos of a number of the tracks from the original album. The packaging is nice-a quadruple-fold out,with the three discs snapped in plastic keepers. The booklet has a number of good color photographs of the band members. There are also several pages on the band and its music by Ian Brown and Gary "Mani" Mounfield,plus an overview by John Robb. On my copy of their first album from a number of years ago,there's a finished track,"Elephant Stone",that's not listed on this current release,except in different form as a demo. This,and other singles/early tracks can be found on other releases such as "The Complete Stone Roses" album,although a number of tracks are shortened in length. Another fine collection is "Turns Into Stone",which contains fewer tracks but they are full length. A lot of other tracks are also on the limited edition box set,which contains (among a lot of other stuff) another disc of tracks. Likewise,on the current release,"Fools Gold" is listed on the back of the package,but not on the inside,under the disc,with the other tracks. There is also a "surprise" at the end of the demo disc. Fifteen tracks are listed,but the CD player lists twenty. There's nothing until track twenty-enjoy!

The original album is considered to be one of the best albums of all time ( in Britain) by a number of critics and fans. And for good reason. It came out at just the right time. A combination of bits of acid house,punk,pop,and a bit of psychedelia mixed together-it was the perfect sound for the times.
