It’s a bold claim to call an album perfect, but fuck it, the stone roses debut album is perfect. Every second of it is magical. Mani’s deep bass lines, John Squires fluid guitar licks and Reni’s outstanding drumming create a dense overwhelming psychedelic unforgettable musical experience.
“We wrote most of the first album in the few weeks after inking the deal [with Silverstone Records], because we’d blagged the record company. We told Silverstone that we had about 30 or 40 songs, but we only had about eight.”
