Brit-pop has never been performed better than on the Stone Roses' self-titled debut album. Coming somewhere near to it, however, is this, Turns into Stone. Admittedly, Turns into Stone isn't made up of entirely original material. Rather, the album is a sort of "best of the Stone Roses' B-sides." Fortunately, these are B-sides of exceptional quality. Included in the track list is perhaps the bands finest moment, "Fools Gold." The track is driven along by Reni's domineering drumming, and Mani's understated bassline, while Squire impresses with his lead and Brown sings a rather sinister, but catchy, melody. While the album's approach has taken on a dancy edge, if you will, on the whole, Turns into Stone retains the guitar-driven musical style that dominated the Stone Roses' debut. Despite not being quite as consistent as the previously mentioned release, Turns into Stone has all the hallmarks of a great Brit-pop album, and will delight those who enjoyed the band's first release.

Britpop in 10 Albums

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” It was with this sentence from Damon Albarn in 1993 that England invaded the stage previously dominated by Nirvana and Seattle grunge. Britpop is deeply linked to politics and local identity and emerged just as Tony Blair and New Labour were entering the scene. English romanticism was once again becoming attractive compared to the American identity, which was considered too hollow in the UK. Make way for “Cool Britannia”.

Metallica, the Path to Glory

Having sold 125 million albums across the globe, including some 30 million copies of their “Black Album”, Metallica is among the unlikeliest of pop sensations to come out of the last half-century. So how did a heavy metal band with such a convoluted song structure end up on par with music from the likes of Madonna and Michael Jackson? By following their instincts and sheer determination. Let’s return to the roots of the most famous heavy metal band in history.

Ian Curtis, Industrial and Universal Poet

It’s been about forty years since the singer from Joy Division took his own life, but the shadow of his death still hangs over post-punk, new wave and rock history. In just two albums, the cult band from Manchester turned grey skies, depression and urban industrialisation into beautiful music thanks to their charismatic leader, who is just as influential today.
