for me, the reason second coming gets slated so much, is because it gets constantly compared to, and is measured against, the debut album "the stone roses", when compared to what is, in my book, one of the greatest albums of all time, by any band, it's always gonna fall short. I do believe that if the second coming was made by any other band but the roses, it would be seen as a truly great album rather than the disappointment it is viewed as today.

Couldn't live up to the hype of the debut, but still a great album with some interesting production.

The most predictably named album ever. Five years in the making, the messianic Stone Roses returned to follow up the album that defined Madchester and relit the fires of British guitar music. The wicky-wah guitar blues sound that had crept into the last of their initial batch of releases was realised in full here, departing from the very English sound of their eponymous debut album. The huge hype surrounding the band and the expectations of their comeback record piled up in the music press and the minds of fans. Inevitably, the end product would dissapoint.

Thankfully, it isn't all bad. The opener- Breaking Into Heaven is a sprawling epic of guitar-heroics, from the murky intro (Saigon, 1968) rising up through the clouds of murky riffs into the towering sunlight of the chorus and then the inevitable Roses instrumental freak-out to end on, capturing everything that made them brilliant in a whole new light. Driving South is a tangled mass of snarling riff and rapid solo- lacking structure but never insistance. Ten Story Love Song is classic Roses- glorious uplifting pop. Begging You is the best record the Chemical Brothers never made- a ferocious charge of drums with Ian Brown wailing like Liam Gallagher's doppelganger amidst the chaos. Closing track, Love Spreads is a meandering collection of riffery, encased in Led Zeppelin mockery and cryptic lyrics.

However, for much of the time it is unmemorable. Daybreak is a shrugged jam, cumulating in a nice, welling solo but containing little to make the wait worthwhile. Many of the other tracks scream "filler". The important and urgency is lacking.

Of course, there are two notable occasions where the arrogance they made their own becomes simply annoying, in a very overt way. Take the "concealed track", buried amongst 86 tracks of silence, which forces you to skip forward to reach the actual album, rather than backwards. Then there's the 4 minute intro to the album. It's atmospheric, and interesting. I'd even say it was beneficial to the listening experience. But instead of a seperate track, it's slapped onto Breaking Into Heaven to create a gigantic, unwieldly song. Going somewhere in the other direction is the hilarious inlay photos. Still, all said and done, the presentation is secondary to the music, which is awesome in places, and sadly mundane in others. Worth owning just to glimpse how close they came.
