The Vinyl Word on... The Stone Roses
I know I’m not alone in saying this album is a must have for any car journey!! Honestly there’s something about that bass intro to ‘I wanna be Adored’ that just gets me every time. That gritty bass sequence is up there alongside the iconic bass solo in Fleetwood Mac's ‘The Chain’ as being one of the all time rare moments that bass players stole a bit of limelight!
‘I wanna be Adored’ is 100% one of my all time favourite songs with elements of light and dark throughout with a mystical synth complimented with that signature Stone Roses guitar sound. If the bass and drum build with Ian Brown preaching “I wanna, I wanna, I wanna be adored” doesn’t fill you with euphoria, than I can tell you; your listening wrong!
I can't explain why but ‘Waterfalls’ makes me daydream about packing my bags and travelling the world maybe it’s the light heart and jumpy rhythm but it fills me with all the happy wanderlust feels!
As I’m a girl who plays the drums, maybe it's safe to throw it out there that ‘She Bangs the Drum’ is clearly about me! Or so I like to imagine!
This album married with a bag of cans = the perfect pair.
