I can remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I heard the Stone Roses were reforming and were to play 2 (Which later became 3) massive dates at Heaton Park in Manchester. This was a band I had spent all of my teenage years listening to, convinced that I had been born too late to see them perform live.

I bought my ticket for Heaton Park and also saw them live at V Fest at Weston Park. Both times they blew me away.

I can also remember hearing about Shane Meadows plans to release a documentary which focused on the Roses. I am a big fan of Meadows work, particularly the This Is England series, and when I heard that he would be at the helm of a film about the Roses, I knew it would be nothing short of brilliant. And how right I was.

What this film does, is it captures the euphoria only a band like the Stone Roses can bring to a group of people. It celebrates their music, and focuses on just how much it means to their fans. This is definitely a film by a fan for the fans. Expect no revelations, as Meadows even mentions in the film that he refuses to dig dirt on the band. Highlights are the rehearsal footage, and the build up and performances from Warrington Parr Hall. Also, the final 15 minutes - a rousing rendition of Fools Gold - will leave you breathless. This steelbook edition includes bonus performances, and footage from Spike Island, which is worth the money alone.

A great watch for any Stone Roses fan.

This has to be one of the greatest moments in documentary cinema history. Meadows excels here and also surprises with a technical and emotional master class in filmmaking. A reunion all fans had given up hope on ever happening, not only happens but is captured by the greatest living british director. There is a god!

A wonderful documentary which is simply a must see.

Meadows is a master of his craft and his love of the Roses shines through.

What can I say, other than get the box set.
Great behind the stage look with both Shane Meadows, the Band & the fans.
Plus the concerts & warm up shows , with all the feedback of the Roses & the fans.
