Good? Bad? It's definitely The Stone Roses.



Lemon-Banger



You keep people waiting decades for new material, and you’re going to have to make it bloody good. The stakes for The Stone Roses are high - after all, 1994’s ‘The Second Coming’ hardly lived up to it’s billing. ‘All For One’ needs to be a banger.

And it is. If you take it by the book, at any rate. John Squire’s guitar part could make it nothing but. That doesn’t mean it’s necessarily good, or indeed bad. In fact, it’s quite hard to work out what it is. A baggy Manc theme song for Clarkson’s new car show? A swaggering, towering, defiant blast from the past - a last cry from the terraces and clubs of the early 90s? Something the Seahorses had hanging about (ask your Dad, kids - Ed)? You could make an argument for any of the above. But what it definitely is, beyond any doubt, is The Stone Roses.

And, for starters, that’s something. The jury may still be out on if going back into the studio was the best idea, but from ‘All For One’ you can be sure of one thing; The Stone Roses still believe.
