Stone Roses: Stone Roses (Silvertone)

Jack Barron, New Musical Express, 29 April 1989

THIS IS Rain Parade at ease after the storm. This is Dream Syndicate going through a recurring nightmare. This is an aural Big Mac laced with psychedelic drill. This comes from Manchester and is made by people who think Levenshulme is a suburb of San Francisco. This is The Byrds after they've flown the coop. This is living proof that acid is good for you. This is quite good. Just.
