The Stone Roses is the debut album by English rock band The Stone Roses, released on Silvertone Records in 1989. It cemented the band's reputation among critics, and is still rated by some as one of the most influential albums. In 2004 an Observer Music Monthly poll consisting of musicians and critics voted the album the greatest of all time, as did the writers of NME in 2006, declaring it to be the greatest British album of all time. It is widely considered as the seminal record of the Madchester movement that was active in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and as being highly responsible for the mid 1990s resurrection of British guitar music that came to be known as Britpop.
The Stone Roses formed in 1984 and released their full-length debut in the spring of 1989, having previously released a handful of singles on several different labels. The band came from Manchester, where the so-called Madchester movement was centred. Despite not considering themselves part of this scene, their eponymous debut brought them nationwide success along with such Madchester groups as the Inspiral Carpets and Happy Mondays.
The Roses recorded the album with John Leckie, a notable producer who had

The album that heralded the start of the 1990s: old-fashioned psychedelica meet a newly fashionable drug - ecstasy.
In 2009 I bought me the 20th anniversary special edition which has bonus track "Fools Gold" (UK 12" single version) which wasn't on the original album in 1989. With "Fools Gold" added it became a five star album for me.
