Limited vinyl LP repressing of the Manchester band's legendary 1989 debut album. Produced by John Leckie, this self-titled platter was released in the right place and at the right time, becoming one of the cornerstone albums of the late '80s Madchester AND Britpop movements. Includes 'I Wanna Be Adored', 'She Bangs the Drums', 'Made of Stone' and many more.
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Vinyl as has been said was quite dirty/dusty. Also some strange swirl marks on the vinyl surface as if someone tried to polish and buff it up (with the sole of their shoes)! They are there for good I'm afraid. Record itself is flat and although a few snaps and crackles plays fine. Volume has to be turned up its a very quiet pressing but then you get all the attendant hiss and background hum so its not a clean sound at all. First side 22 minutes, second side 46 minutes.
Still after 25 years you can't really expect Sony to bother to get it right can you!?
180g still don't see the point apart from making the floor joists bend a bit more.
Overall happy to have a vinyl version of this great album as I didn't get it first time around but as Sony don't have to pay for recording a new album it would be nice if they could pay more attention to the actual quality and sonics of the pressing.
Well worth £9 of anyone's money, unfortunately it cost a lot more than that!
The CD sounds much better but its nice to have the vinyl. Excuse my contradictory review. Just played an original King Crimson LP from 1970 and its hugely better sonically and volume to background noise ratio as in there isn't any.
My copy came with some marks on the vinyl but luckily doesn't affect playback, got a partial refund from Amazon for this so hats off to them. Generally, the vinyl sounds good and I can enjoy my Manc music in full vinyl experience. Ok, I'm no audiophile but it's good enough to listen to "I wanna be adored" through my Audio Technica AT-LP60USB via AUX on my BOSE!
As per, the album cannot be matched. The Stone Roses self-titled, is pure music to my ears and one of the best out there.
Great price for quality Vinyl music from a Band I knew a little about from a documentary I saw here in the United States.
I didn't have the ability prior to technology such as ITunes , etc....
I've since ordered an amazing USB briefcase style turntable from the UK, and can't wait for my pre order purchase of The The box set to arrive. Matt has been a favorite since 1983 , graduating from high school " Soul Mining " simply changed my life ! The way I viewed music and opened my mind and even made me realize that I don't care if others "approve "of my taste in music , it's personal and Matt spoke what I was thinking loud n clear !
I can't wait to visit England. Plan to travel there with my 9 year old daughter in the next 2 years. Waiting until we can afford to fly Virgin First Class and stay 3 or 4 weeks.
I want to really experience London and the music and art scene as well as meet as many people as I can. I think people in England are simply nicest people I've ever been around. Gorgeous ladies with brilliant minds as well , and the guys are easy going and easy to share a pint with and I love hearing talk of life there , makes me wish I could live there ! It would be a dream come true. I'm a single Dad , 49 years old , soccer fan and Osborne being surname I'm sure my roots are there. I'll pray about it , save money and further education in hopes of landing possibly a position for a few years and work , travel and afford my daughter the chance to see the world and not just South Carolina. If it's God's plan , we will achieve our goal , prayer and hard work us the key.
Best wishes to all who read this in UK. Look out Punk Rogers ( my nickname ) is coming to town. Have a pint and billiard table ready and let's all have a great time !
I remember listening to this album when it first came out and it totally blew my mind then, so now 22 years later on i decided to purchase the newly remastered version of The Stone Roses official debut release. I expect most people reading this review are familiar with the material here so i will give s short description of the remaster. The packaging is executed in a tasteful manner that keeps with the theme of the original artwork and photography presented in a gatefold cardboard sleeve. There is also booklet with additional photos and liner notes from John Robb, which put this seminal release into context. I must say that i was very impressed with the mastering here it is so good that it really captures the magic of the songs and although i have heard this album many times it sounds better than it ever did before. Fools Gold 9:53 is also included as a bonus and is very welcome in the eyes of a long term fan. I would like to see all the 12-inch singles released in this style too. All in all this is excellent reissue of an album that deserved to be remastered properly so top marks this release, if you are a fan buy it you wont regret it.
