Bought this album on a whim and never expected to be totally blown away by it. There was nothing like it at the time, and it remains one of the most unique collection of songs I've ever heard.

Unique sound, instantly recognizable. An almost perfect album that marked an entire generation.

Perfect from A to Z. There is no better grand finale than "I Am The Resurection".

This is actually the album that pre-dated britpop that is better than any britpop album released, If you, like myself are a decent person and don't consider Radiohead Britpop. The Stone Roses were, right after The Smiths the most important band to emerge from Manchester in the 80s and were decisive for the reborn of britain music in the 90s.

Listened to this again for the first time in 3 years (I Wanna Be Adored soundtracked the walk I took to a girlfriend’s house for her to break up with me) and like other commenters have mentioned, it was so much better than I recalled. A lovely album chocked full of fantastic melodies. Could have done without the reunion, however.

From Aaron98
It's a shame The Stone Roses never made anything this good again. From the crisp production, beautiful guitar playing and kick ass drums, this album is jam packed with great songs all the way through. Although, "Don't Stop" is the only thing I think drags this album down a tiny bit, but its' really not that bad. It's pretty much "Waterfall" backwards, but it's just a little long. Although, "I Wanna be Adored", "She Bangs the Drums", "Waterfall", "Made of Stone", "This is the One", "I am the Resurrection", are all soooo good. The whole album feels like it has one side being 80's jangle pop, but also a little psychedelic, and it mixes so well. It all sounds so fresh and just overall really consistent, and I'd definitely recommend giving it a shot.

A very enjoyable album without any real low points on it. Tough to put into context now the impact that it had but still able to be listened to in pretty much any setting.

I can hear dream pop, new wave, jangle pop on this record, but nothing really new honestly. Still it’s enjoyable though.

Something really strange happens to me with this album. Every time I recall it I think that it's just all right. Then I listen to it and it's always way better than I remembered.
