Rank the Tracks: The Stone Roses' The Stone Roses (1989)

Postby Honorio » Sun May 14, 2017 4:02 pm

Let's get mad(chester)!



The Stone Roses' "The Stone Roses" (1989)

Tracklisting:
01 | I Wanna Be Adored
02 | She Bangs the Drums
03 | Waterfall
04 | Don't Stop
05 | Bye Bye Badman
06 | Elizabeth My Dear
07 | (Song for My) Sugar Spun Sister
08 | Made of Stone
09 | Shoot You Down
10 | This Is the One
11 | I Am the Resurrection
12 | Elephant Stone
13 | Fools Gold

Note: the original edition of "The Stone Roses" (first released in the UK on May 2nd of 1989) included the first 11 tracks on the track listing above. The first US edition (released on July of 1989) added a previous single ("Elephant Stone") and the second US edition (released on July of 1989) added a recent single in its 12" version ("Fools Gold"). Following the Rank the Tracks tradition (we did the same with "Is This It" and "Are You Experienced") I've decided to combine the UK and US editions of the album.

Achtung, babies, U2 are coming...

Two comments:
1. I see that my favourite songs are neither the ones acclaimed by the critics nor the ones selected by the other AMers so far. In my opinion the Stone Roses gave the best of themselves when they approached the Sixties Pop (and 80s epic sounds) and not that much when they tried Dance Pop (or Psychedelic jams), even if they were mostly renowned for the latter styles.
2. How come that "This Is the One" is showing up on the bottom positions on so many lists? Are you Manchester City supporters in disguise?*

* For the ones not familiar with what I'm saying (probably many of our dear American AMers) I'll try to explain it. The city of Manchester has two important football clubs (I still resist to call it soccer), Manchester City and Manchester United. There has always been rivalry between both teams, with the United more successful historically speaking but with the City sporting a solid working-class fan base (something similar happens in Madrid with Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid). And there is music rivalry too. The Gallagher brothers showed sympathy for the City and "Wonderwall" became the unofficial anthem of the team. And the Manchester United team enter every Sunday the court of their Old Trafford stadium at the sound of the Stone Roses' "This Is the One." You can check a humourous article about this music/sport rivalry on http://strettynews.com/manchester-derby ... -vs-oasis/
My choice? I got no doubt. This is the one, this is the one, this is the o-o-one...

(I'm relistening to all of the albums from our top 500 that I didn't vote for, which is why I'm doing so many of these. Of course, I forgot about this for the top 50, oh well).
