When this came out it had very mixed reviews so when I bought it shortly afterwards having only heard Love Spreads and Your star Will Shine I was prepared for dissapointment.

However sitting in a darkened room with this on the headphones certainly told me all I needed to know about this great LP. From the very start of Breaking Into Heavens weird and wonderful middle of a swamp intro the Roses have your attention. Breaking into Heaven is a totally different sound to the Byrd like sound on the first album it's darker heavier but by no means poorer. After a tantalising 11 minute beginning you go into Driving South which has been used many a time on TV as background music, Soccer am ,Top Gear etc perfect driving guitar music with ian Brown rasping vocals telling us that he sure as hell aint pretty and he sure as hell can't sing-bit harsh but a nice twist on the usual self confidence. From here we get the sublime Ten storey Love Song which as many have said could have been slotted easily onto the debut LP. The track after this Daybreak changes the feel of the CD yet again fronm almost poppy to almost funky-love the slow down speed up tempo change and simplistic name checking of destinations 'from new york city to addis ababaaaa'. Nice tune which takes us onto the slower more thoughtful Your Star will Shine which is nice without blowing you away. Straight to the man is a bit more up tempo and is again nice without pulling up any trees, what it does do is keep the flow of the LP going.

Now the Roses being the Roses they don't settle for letting the whole package peter out they come back with a real blaster the high tempo technoesque Beggin You another track heard a lot outside the confines of the Cd.

I bought Second Coming when it first came out. I was then in my mid twenties, my musical tastes had changed over the years since their eponymous début had brought jangly guitars into my late teenage world. I thought this would take me back to those days but on a first listen I despised this sound, ejected the CD, and placed it back on my shelf to gather dust. Many years later the CD was dusted down and put into my car to give me something different to listen to. The decision came from coming across Love Spreads, liking the groove, and a desire to give Second Coming a second chance. Over the years, I had come across a wider range of music than I had as a teen, and instantly noticed them on this recording. Hints of John Fogerty and CCR, certainly Led Zeppelin, even some George Clinton funk. This album is a much more mature affair. While the first album sparkles, this gets down and dirty with some great funky basslines, powerful guitars, and more swagger than, well, more swagger than most Mancs. I wonder what would have happened had this been released earlier, perhaps stopping the rise of their understudies Oasis, and the lamentable britpop explosion. I don't think it would have made a difference, like the madchester scene before, The Stone Roses would have still been outside and beyond the scene. I also think it wouldn't have been the same album had it appeared earlier. The years in the record industry wilderness certainly shaped this album. Listening now in 2015, this album dates much less than its predecessor. I find the first album to be too jangly, too saccharin sweet now to listen to as a whole. It has to be broken up into individual tracks listened to in isolation. Second Coming though can still be listened to right through as an experience rather than a collection of moments.

This is not the best album ever made but it IS my favorite. For many years I preferred The Stone Roses but with age I gravitated more and more to the Second Coming. In places (e.g. Driving South and Tears) it has a very very heavy sound and that probably turned off the fans who liked the jingly jangly pop of their earlier singles. However, the improved production, layered guitars and bigger sound really makes the first album sound light weight by contrast.

The Second Coming has a depth that is only really revealed with repeated listens. In many respects, it's Squires'album, he wrote most of the tracks and his guitar playing dominates the music. In places, (e.g. Love Spreads and Good Times) it is absolutely virtuoso and compares with greats like Hendrix. It's definately an album that's dominated by the music rather than the vocals but in places (e.g. Tightrope) the lyrics are just pure poetry. Browns snearing, rasping, accented delivery is perfect for the sound.

Whilst not as immediate as other records, the songs are definately of a consistently high standard and the album only seems to dip with middle tracks Star Will Shine and Straight to the Man. My favorite track is actually one that I would routinely skip over when I first bought the album. Daybreak. Their playing on that is amazing and every single listen seems to reveal another hidden nuance. Most will probably prefer Ten Storey Love Song which is the most 'poppy' track and the most like the first album.

It's probably a marmite album that will suit certain tastes. Personally, I love it.
