Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The Stones Roses' harmonious blend of melodic six-string pop and psychedelic rock and roll still remains, after all these years, both fresh and vital. Whether it's the slithering, narcissistic arrogance of "I Wanna Be Adored", the soaring chorus of "She Bangs the Drums", or the funky workout of "Elephant Stone", The Stone Roses has more highlights than a David Beckham career retrospective. But more than that, it's a cohesive album whose seamlessly sequenced song cycle begins by devilishly taunting "I don't have to sell my soul / He's already in me", and ends with the deliciously arrogant declaration "I am the Resurrection and I am the Light." True to the words of its bookends, the entire album is pompous and defiant, each song crackling with ambition and hunger.
