I thought about The Stone Roses yesterday. It doesn’t happen everyday, but certainly not as much as it used to. Five years in the making, the second album, The Second Coming, would inevitably disappoint. However, ‘Ten Story Love Song’ is classic Roses – a 4-min-plus slice of glorious uplifting alt pop. It wasn’t worth that very long wait, but we would take what we could get. Perversely, by 1994/1995, Britpop, which was arguably a product of the Roses phenomenon, was in full flow.
