#497: The Stone Roses by The Stone Roses

1.04.2011


The Stone Roses by The Stone Roses (1989)

Favorite track(s): "She Bangs the Drums" and "Elephant Stone"

Thoughts: I'd never heard of the Stone Roses before this. (In fact, when I saw the name, I confused them with the Stone Poneys.) Apparently they only ever released two albums, so it's pretty impressive they made it to this list, but after listening to this album, not surprising. It's the best blend of 80s and 90s pop-rock I've heard in a long time--and British! I learned they are also from Manchester--like The Smiths.

The other albums I've listened to so far on the list are awesome, and I recommend them, but I think this will be an album I definitely purchase. I listened to the November 1989 US re-release, in case you're curious.
