The Stone Roses is the debut studio album by English rock band The Stone Roses, originally released in May 1989 via Silvertone Records.

The Stone Roses formed in Manchester in 1983 and were one of the pioneering groups of the “Madchester” movement – and indi rock phenomenon that fused guitar pop with drug-fueled rave and dance culture - that was active during the late 1980s and early 1990s. The band's most prominent lineup consists of vocalist Ian Brown, guitarist John Squire, bassist Mani, and drummer Reni.

Although The Stone Roses was not an immediate success, its standing improved significantly among most critics, many of whom have since voted it high in polls of the greatest albums of all time.

What made The Stone Roses important was how they welcomed dance and pop together, treating them as if they were the same beast. Equally important was their cool, detached arrogance, which was personified by Ian Brown's nonchalant vocals.

Brown's effortless malevolence is brought to life with songs that equal both his sentiments and his voice - I Wanna Be Adored, with its creeping bass line and waves of cool guitar hooks, doesn't demand adoration, it just expects it. Similarly, Brown can claim I Am The Resurrection and lie back, as if there were no room for debate.

But the key to The Stone Roses is John Squire's layers of simple, exceedingly catchy hooks and how the rhythm section of Reni and Mani always imply dance rhythms without overtly going into the disco. On She Bangs The Drums the hooks wind into the rhythm inseparably, the '60s hooks and the rolling beats manage to convey the colorful, neo-psychedelic world of acid house. Squire's riffs are bright and catchy, recalling the British Invasion while suggesting the future with their phased, echoey effects.

The Stone Roses was a two-fold revolution, it brought dance music to an audience that was previously obsessed with droning guitars, while it revived the concept of classic pop songwriting, and the repercussions of its achievement could be heard throughout the '90s, even if the band could never achieve this level of achievement again.

This album is a 2018 repressing on black vinyl with raised gold lettering on the cover, replicating the first UK pressing and a printed inner sleeve, pressed in Europe via Silvertone Records.
