Stone Roses 20th Anniversary Debut Album

Truly, I have never felt older than right now. This week marks the 2oth anniversary of the release of one of the greatest debut albums of all time, The Stone Roses. As I have discussed the Roses in a previous post, I will not go into too much detail except to say - get their debut if you do not already own it. It is the greatest pop album ever made, and that includes the Beatles. It is the template for Britpop. Still sounds amazing today, thanks to John Leckie's timeless production. So here's to one of the most beloved bands of all time, The Stone Roses. I wish Ian and John would mend their rifts and reunite, if only for purely selfish reasons.

Watch the video, as it's funny to see them so young and wearing goofy 80's clothes. Sounds great though, as always.
