Bold, innovative, cocky, tripped-out, ingenious, anthemic, huge and utterly cool. One of the best longplayers ever in Turn Up The Volume‘s book. Tons of Northern heart and soul from Manchester. No fillers, all killers. THE STONE ROSES nailed it big time.
The masterpiece was released 30 years ago, on 2 May 1989, via small label Silvertone Records. Guitarist John Squire developed the iconic artwork for the front sleeve. It was inspired by American painter and abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock and expressed references to the May 1968 riots in Paris. Here’s British mag NME‘s classic LP review.
The album sold over four million copies by now.
