Editor reviews

Award-winning narrator Fred Berman's bracing, precisely-drawn performance will have listeners reaching for their copies of The Stone Roses once more in order to relive the album's pleasures. Writer Alex Green's nuanced look at the album includes not only his own personal associations with the Stone Roses, but also provides a comprehensive picture of the political and cultural context surrounding it. Berman's voice is full of wry charm, and he instinctively brings out the emotional resonance within Green's analysis of the themes in each song.

Summary

The Stone Roses shows a band sizzling with skill, consumed with drive and aspiration and possessing an almost preternatural mastery of the pop paradigm. This book explores the political and cultural zeitgeist of England in 1989, and attempts to apprehend the magic ingredients that made The Stone Roses such a special album.
