Stone Roses Debate
« on: November 28, 2017, 05:20:57 AM »
I can't decide which of these two songs is thee greatest bit of music that will ever be recorded.  Their Live performance of second choice at Blackpool in 1989 still said only display anybody should need view.

One does think Fool's Gold will always be my favourite but do believe I Am The Resurrection by far the better composition.

Don't know how we got Ian, John, Mani and Reni into our book acknowledgement either!!!!

There should be a third 'Brown' option for this to be an official Donstalk Poll

Empress Ballroom while an iconic gig had/has shite sound, so neither.
The Etihad in 2016 was the tightest they’ve ever been. I reckon. All were on top form and acoustics lent themselves to the occasion.

Ok just my opinion.

The first stone roses album was excellent (as is I am the resurrection and fools gold).

It was great timing , mixing funky guitar riffs with rock and a cool 60s electronics experimental vibe.

The tunes were really catchy and the youth embraced it in the club scene.

However, after that, I believe they were over rated average musicians.

It's extremely trendy for some reason to love the stone roses when really they were a one album pony IMO.

Many of those 90s bands could be similarly described. Churning out some great tunes.

The SRs deserve their accolades but really for just THAT album.

there's far better musicians around who have done way more for the world of music but they're not as cool I guess.

Each to our own.carry n.

IMHO an overrated band with some great tunes.
Excellent musicians, dreadful singer.
