5.0 out of 5 stars As near to the second coming as you can get!!!, 19 Dec. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Second Coming (Audio CD)
O.K. We all know about how good the first album was, but this is the follow up to "one of the best albums ever". This album took an agonising 5 years to conceive - 5 years!!! That's half a decade!!!! That's 1/20 of a Century!!!! Some band's careers don't even last for 5 years. So, the big question, what is the second coming actually like? Well, I have never been disappointed with this album. The first 3 songs, Breaking into Heaven, Driving South and Ten storey love song, pick up where "The Stone Roses" left off in that golden summer of 1989. Tunes!! That's what it all boils down to and top ones at that. As this album progresses through it's many twists and turns, it becomes a confused and flawed beast, but comes out on top with it's 5 stars intact. How can an album get a 5 star review, when it contains songs as poor as the laughable "straight to the man" and the limp "How do you sleep"??? This album contains 12 songs, 10 of which easily stand along side anything from the first album, which is commonly deemed one of the best albums ever. Infact, I'll even stick my neck out and state that "Begging you" is better than anything by any band. The Stone Roses nearly killed themselves and each other during the making of this album. If you listen closely, you can clearly hear the tension, confusion, paranoia, drugs, fights, tears and insecurity that dominated their lives during the studio sessions. But at the end of the day The Stone Roses came out on top with a decent album. Don't listen to negativity in relation to this beautifly crazed beast of an album. If people don't like this album, it's because they just haven't got the time to get into it. But once this album hits you, it won't stop sounding better with every listen - even with two dodgy tracks. Buy it, give it a chance and get into it.
