Album Review

Since the Stone Roses were the nominal leaders of Britain's "Madchester" scene — an indie rock phenomenon that fused guitar pop with drug-fueled rave and dance culture — it's rather ironic that their eponymous debut only hints at dance music. What made the Stone Roses important was how they welcomed dance and pop together, treating them as if they were the same beast. Equally important was the Roses' cool, detached arrogance, which was personified by Ian Brown's nonchalant vocals. Brown's effortless malevolence is brought to life with songs that equal both his sentiments and his voice — "I Wanna Be Adored," with its creeping bassline and waves of cool guitar hooks, doesn't demand adoration, it just expects it. Similarly, Brown can claim "I Am the Resurrection" and lie back, as if there were no room for debate. But the key to The Stone Roses is John Squire's layers of simple, exceedingly catchy hooks and how the rhythm section of Reni and Mani always imply dance rhythms without overtly going into the disco. On "She Bangs the Drums" and "Elephant Stone," the hooks wind into the rhythm inseparably — the '60s hooks and the rolling beats manage to convey the colorful, neo-psychedelic world of acid house. Squire's riffs are bright and catchy, recalling the British Invasion while suggesting the future with their phased, echoey effects. The Stone Roses was a two-fold revolution — it brought dance music to an audience that was previously obsessed with droning guitars, while it revived the concept of classic pop songwriting, and the repercussions of its achievement could be heard throughout the '90s, even if the Stone Roses could never achieve this level of achievement again.

Customer Reviews

It Hurts.....

To bear witness to my favourite ever album being torn asunder to the sound of Silvertone scraping the barrell hurts my soul. The Stone Roses were integral in growing up. I was 19 when I first heard the debut in 1989. Blackpool, Ally Pally and Spike Island followed....great memories, they changed my life. This album is a stain on the legacy, the capitalist agenda of wringing every single penny of Zomba's only cash cow.... Only the 808 State remix of Made of Stone is comes out with any sort of artistic merit. Please don't buy this album

THE Stones with a different slant

A truly spectacular album, nearly as good as the originals. The Roses were iconic then and still are , and this remixed version just breathes new life into untouchable music. Well done. If you don't buy this and the rest of the Roses albums then your music collection will never be complete!!!
