Well the rumours about a new album are re-circulating.
This time, it seems, there could actually be some substance to them!

Blur>> TGE

End of discussion :P

Second Coming was the Roses' highest charting album back then, but hasn't stood the test of time like the first. It's actually not as bad as most people and critics think. It's main flaw was that it was recorded by a band that was falling apart. And in that I see the parallel with TGE, which at the time brought Blur on the brink of implosion. Like TGE, Second Coming is inflated in many places, an OTT album, which is what I mostly dislike about both records. Both feel like "bands that are trying too hard". Blur had the sense of running from the madness that Britpop had become, regroup and change direction, while Second Coming basically finished the Roses.

Anyway... awesome news about them recording :mrgreen:

Finally, some good news about new Stone Roses music!

And count me as a fan who actually likes Second Coming a lot, and even in some ways better than the debut. I find the debut a bit overrated...there are some GREAT cuts but some duff ones, too. It's much more uneven than people seem to think, at least IMO.

You'll find a lot of people who think the debut's full of filler. They're not a rare breed at all.

I also like Second Coming. Certainly better than Give Out But Don't Give Up, the other maligned 1994 blues rock excursion posing as a desirable sequel to a hedonistic record of sunny dance culture indie music. And yeah, surely trading in Marr for Page was going to annoy a lot of people, but they're hardly a band of compromise. It's more ambitious than the debut. The minute of icy glaciers that began the first album having nothing on the rainforest rhythm that lasts over four minutes before you even hear the bass. And then from there on you get a record that although not as entertaining is arguably more technically accomplished (good thing or bad thing) and eclectic. On the other hand, if I'm comparing the two albums on their structural aesthetic, there's no epic closing track. Surely Love Spreads should have been morphed into a 17 minute fucking Freebird or something, considering the I Wanna Be Adored-Breaking into Heaven 1:3 ratio :P Maybe that drunken hidden track with the grunting, barking dogs and murderous "violin playing" "suffices".

Oh and, no, I won't let it lie Miki, TGE > Blur :p

Hooray! New Stone Roses! I feel like I must see them live this year. I wonder if MSG will be their only US gig. I sure hope they come somewhere closer, but I doubt it. I doubt I could afford going all the way to NYC to see the Stone Roses. I was willing to pay whatever I had to pay for blur, so this situation is very different :P

Even if I don't get to catch them live, I'll be MEGA excited for the new album :D

When the Stone Roses emerged in 1989, tracks like 'I Am The Resurrection' and 'Fools Gold' were a marked change to the glossy sounds of the time.

I liked the Roses, and I like the late 60s prog-rock sound they emulated, but was a bit baffled as to why they were doing this. Artists like EMF or Jesus Jones seemed more potent, doing the indie rock that the Roses did, but in a contemporary style.

I think the debut Roses album was important for introducing 'retro' as a valid genre. As an album I think it was a bit uneven.

'Second Coming' I have played again recently, and is a bit better than I remember at the time.

Well, well, well... after all that time, finally something new. I'll remain open minded, but like Drew, a bit cautious.

Third Coming.

I'm looking forward to it too. I recon its a relatively bare affair. No studio atmospheres or anything.

Radio 1 DJs are talking about them right now (apparently the song premieres there in 3 minutes - 7:50). They make me wanna vomit.
