Album Review

Given the glut of Stone Roses compilations, it's easy to assume that there's already been a collection called The Very Best of the Stone Roses prior to this 2002 release, or at least one that does something similar to its career-spanning overview. No, this is the first disc to run from "Sally Cinnamon" to "Ten Storey Love Song," the first to sketch the band's great promise, glory days, and bewildering downfall. Though there are album versions of songs instead of singles on occasion on this collection, there's nothing rare and nothing that any Stone Roses fan doesn't already have. Nor does it shine as brightly as their debut. That said, the song selection can't be faulted, and the non-chronological sequencing proves that the Roses' lambasted second album did, in fact, have several excellent moments (all of which can be found here) that fit well next to the best of the debut. For that reason, it may be worthwhile for the hardcore, but this is truly for those that want all the singles on one, nicely packaged disc.

No stars for iTunes. C'mon Apple. Why can't you get it together and provide the entire album here? Would it kill you. REALLY? This is no way to treat customers.

The Roses are one of the best bands period.

I put this band up there with The Beatles and the Stones. Their first album is a classic, too bad they could not work it out. This album is a MUST HAVE for all music fans. I pray they get back together cus i still think they have the magic touch. Hey John S, please call Ian and work it out.
