    Their whole first album is fantastic. It's been voted 'The Best British Album OF ALL TIME' by the NME. (http://www.nme.com/news/the-stone-roses/22062). I think if there is one song on the record that enapsulates their sound, it's Elephant Stone.

    i just listened to fools gold (the song) and dug it, but like someone said earlier, it's not much that catches your attention. the other song i listened to might as well never have been recorded. total boresville.

    also, nme is trash. anyone that claims anything other than ok computer as the best album to ever come out of england is a fool.

    Lol....Love reading all of what's be said so far on this top pick, The Stone Roses are in my top 20 best bands of all time and definitely their first album is in my 10 top of all time

    If you have never heard much of there music you're only depriving yourself some of the most kick ass tunes laid down.

    Cheers!
    Here's to an epic weekend of great music.

    I really can't see how The Stone Roses are going to go on after Blur. It doesn't make sense to me.

    Good, not great. I've read many points of view that have attempted to assert their place in music history or whatever, but I've relentlessly failed to catch onto the hype. If we're looking at the Friday night 'co-headliners,' Blur is without a doubt the real historically significant, musically accomplished headliner.

    But then again, you might think the complete opposite and therein lies the beauty of the subjective Coachella experience.

    I imagine this as a brief introduction to the uninitiated. Feel free to delve into their history, far too brief, perhaps that's why this is such a big deal, not many people ever really saw them. Then peak at who they've influenced and been influenced by, some of the greats, but really it's all about the tunes! That's why they're headlining.

    If you'd like to get into them, I suggest getting their first album, 1989's eponymous The Stone Roses. (You can listen to the full US Version with that link)
    Put on a nice pair of headphones, light one up, pour your favorite drink, or just grab some friends and DANCE, but enjoy the ride. A Masterpiece.
    They were also B-Side band, so make sure to check those out, I like Turns Into Stone.
    Their second and final album, Second Coming, is a change of direction and wasn't well received at the time, the bar was set so high, but there is much to like here, some big anthems and lots of groove.


    Their first single from 1987:
    Sally Cinnamon (single mix)

    "When I heard Sally Cinnamon for the first time, I knew what my destiny was." Noel Gallagher

    She Bangs The Drums
    Maybe their biggest hit, still sounds so huge and fresh today.


    Mersey Paradise
    B-Side of She Bangs the Drums, sung from the perspective of a man who drowns and murders a woman over unrequited love. Exquisite guitar work from John Squire, who also painted all cover art for albums and singles.


    Elephant Stone 7" Version
    This is a non-album single which is included as track 3 on the US album. Euphoria in song form.


    Ten Storey Love Song
    Off Second Coming, proper sing-a-long in the desert anthem. For all of us who've ever had our heartbroken, and tried to put the pieces back together, you'll enjoy this one.


    I Am The Resurrection
    There are many ways to end an album, few can match this. (Fool's Gold 12" Version ends the US album) According to Mani, the bassist, the outro was recorded in a single take...incredible.


    I'd like to offer a firm handshake to Goldenvoice for making this dream of mine come true.
    Madchester is coming to Indio!
    I can't wait for April! Who's with me??
    And to those who had never heard of the Stone Roses and have recently given them a listen because of curiosity or their headlining status, what do you think?
    I was looking forward to this thread, for better, or for worse.... this was my first time hearing the Stone Roses.

    Well it looks like America is finally being exposed to the greatest band ever, The Stone Roses!

    First two songs are off the first album.





    Sally Cinnamon, classic!



    Next two songs are off the Second Coming, A change of direction but still amazingly good!

    So many people who are coming to coachella don't know about them! I'm surprised.
    Stone Roses headlined last year's Jisan Valley Rock Festival in Korea on Saturday along with Radiohead on Friday.
    But then Sunday's headliner was James Blake. haha.

    I suggest you check out The Smiths, The Who, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Oasis, Pulp, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, The Libertines and so on and so forth. Radiohead are dull as fuck in comparison to any of the above, so I guess that makes me a fool

    Radiohead is one of my all-time favorite bands and OK Computer is the best album of the 90s, but the greatest English album of all-time is Revolver.

    What you're trying to say is that the Jisan Velley Rock Festival only had one headliner all weekend. Well said. Comparing the Stone Roses to the Beatles is blasphemy. These songs are very hard to listen to, and there's clearly nothing special about the band. This would be like having the Cranberries headline Friday, then saying that the Cranberries shaped a whole decade of people. Well..... they sort of did. Stupid people who are now dead or being taken care of by their elderly parents LOVED the Cranberries, and probably had every Stone Roses record tucked away somewhere. I feel sorry for people who are going to Coachella in 2013 for their first time. They just won't get what all the fuss was about.

    Abbey Road is, to me, the greatest record ever. Also, the greatest Beatles Record, along with The White Album. The White Album is the band at its greatest separately while utilizing one another, and Abbey Road is the greatest, and last, group effort by the band. I hated the Beatles until I heard Abbey Road. I hated Elvis until I saw Live from Hawaii. There is nothing in the Stone Roses discography that will change my heart on this one. Even the first Killers album was special to me, and I sort of didn't show up at the main when they headlined. You can bet your Beatle boots I was there from start to finish for Paul McCartney. Truly good music speaks for itself. You won't have to defend its honor on an internet message board.

    I prefer Rubber Soul to Revolver. However, Beggars Banquet/Let it Bleed/Sticky Fingers/Exile are better than any album the Beatles ever put out. I'm not saying the Beatles suck, they just aren't the Stones.

    Beggars Banquet is a great album, of course... but how can you even compare it to later Beatles albums? I commend them for taking a western direction with their music, but for the whole album? Sympathy for the Devil and Dead Flowers are amazing songs, but they just don't carry the weight of the entire album. The White Album is hit after hit after hit, and so on. Abbey Road is its own thing entirely. I liked Vampire Weekend's first album a lot too, until I realized that A-Punk and Oxford Comma were getting old, and couldn't carry the rest of the album.

    That's interesting. I'd like to know how that song got on my xbox then. I didn't think it was on BB when I heard it on the xbox, but figured it must have been, since I don't have any other Rolling Stone cds. Either way, BB is a great album, but it doesn't have many stand alone great songs. It has a lot of good Rolling Stone songs, but not many that got a lot of radio attention. Who says Dear Doctor is their favorite Rolling Stones song? Tons of people favor Sympathy, and I personally like Jigsaw Puzzle as a second best song. It reminds me of another song I can't place. The additional personnel for the album is more impressive than its supporting tracks. White Album has stellar tracks on each disc respectively. Happiness is a Warm Gun/ Yer Blues/ Bungalow Bill/ Rocky Raccoon/ Revolution/ Dear Prudence/ While My Guitar Gently Wheeps/ Savoy Truffle/ Helter Skelter/ Mother Nature's Son/ Martha My Dear/ Long Long Long/ Sexy Sadie/ Julia/ Goodnight just to name a few off the top of my head... There is seriously no band that can top that list of songs with one, two, or even three records. The only band that comes anywhere near it would probably be Pink Floyd with the Wall, and that's a stretch even.
