4.0 out of 5 stars Up there but not quite as good as the last two LP's, 20 May 2007
This review is from: Alice In Chains (Audio CD)
I brought this album from amazon a few weeks ago and after a few listens on the whole is very good but not quite as good as the last two full length albums. Tunes like Grind, Heaven Beside You and Agian are excellent and were released as singles. The other album tracks I liked were Brush Away, Shame in You, God Am, Frogs and Over now. The others really didn't do it for me, they were good in parts but the songs didn't go anywhere which disappointed me but overall this album is very good 4/5

4.0 out of 5 stars Underated Album, 8 April 2007
This review is from: Second Coming (Audio CD)
As part of a younger generation of fans who are into the stone roses I think this album is up there with the debut. The roses were making music before I was born but there tunes have stood against the test of time as you notice their sound cropping up in the latest bands coming out today.

The Second Coming is a decent album with a great range of songs ranging from sounding mellow, to a bit of techno/dance and just plain rock. Tunes that stand out are 'Breaking into heaven' (once the 4 minute intro is out the way), 'Driving South,' 'Ten Storey Love Song', 'Begging You', 'Tightrope', 'Good Times', 'Tears', and 'Love Spreads'. The Guitar playing by John Squire is amazing and as he wrote most of the songs his lyrics aint to bad either considering he was on the white stuff during sessions for the album. Brownie's vocal is ok while Mani and Reni are in a league of their own with their tight rhythm playing.

All in all a very good album definitely worth listening too

5.0 out of 5 stars Who would have thought after 1996, 1 July 2006
This review is from: The Greatest (Audio CD)
Who would have thought after the disastrous Stone Roses Reading festival performance in 1996 that Ian Brown would remerge like he has today. The best way to describle Ian Brown's solo material is that each song on this Greatest Hits CD is different from one another and doesn't sound like anything like the Stone Roses. Ian Brown shows great innovation with each tune, from the string influenced track F.E.A.R to the acid house sound of Love like a fountain. Each track is great in its own way so skipping a track really isn't an option.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wish there was more, 29 Jun. 2006
I'm a massive Verve fan but even I think this is a waste. As the band disbanded in 1999, their record companny is now trying to fleece money out of their fans. Although video's like History, Bittersweet symphoney, The drugs don't work and Lucky man are occasionally aired on music channels, the only good thing about this dvd is that the other videos are featured and these hardly ever come on tv. I'm only giving this 3 stars because of the lack of content. There could have included some live tracks or a full live gig which would have made it more appealing because I never got chance to see them live in their prime as I was only a kid by the time they disbanded. Buy it if your a fan or new to the band but don't expect much for your money.
