An intelligent, enthusiastic and amusing analysis of a classic album with excerpts from interviews with members of the band and their contemporaries that enlighten rather than obfuscate, and give a fair impression of the UK music scene in the late 1980s. Each track is given a chapter to itself, and it's a rewarding experience to listen to each track after reading its chapter especially if, like me, you don't normally pay much attention to lyrics. The Stone Roses may have only had one great album in them, but after reading this, you'll be glad they came our way at all. It has certainly made me want to listen to the album more often.

N.B. The book refers to the US release of the album, which included the track Elephant Stone, omitted from the UK release. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0826417426, Paperback)

The Stone Roses shows a band sizzling with skill, consumed with drive and aspiration and possessing an almost preternatural mastery of the pop paradigm. This book explores the political and cultural zeitgeist of England in 1989, and attempts to apprehend the magic ingredients that made The Stone Roses such a special album.
