Added DiffLines:

* LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition - The self-titled album got one of these for its twentieth anniversary. It was released in several formats, including CD/LP+7", 2 CD/1 DVD, and 3 CD/3 LP/1 DVD, the last of which also includes a lot of {{Feelies}} and a USB stick featuring a bunch of digital files.

Added DiffLines:

* TropesAreNotBad - While ''Turns into Stone'' was released by the label as a [[MoneyDearBoy cash grab]], it's still well regarded by fans because it compiles nearly all the band's B-sides and other material from around the time of the first album onto a single disc. In fact, it's so well regarded that the most extensive LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition of the first album includes all the tracks from ''Turns into Stone'' on its second disc (along with two more). Quite a few fans regard it more warmly than the band's actual second album, ''Second Coming''.

The band was formed in 1984 by Brown and John Squire, its initial lineup including Reni and [[ThePeteBest two other dudes who aren't important]] (guitarist Andy Couzens, bassist Pete Garner). [[BlatantLies They initially wasted time]] as a gloomy, synth-heavy goth-rock band inspired by JoyDivision, but permanently changed their sound in 1987 by firing the unimportant dudes and bringing in Mani, which led to them discovering their SignatureStyle, "PsychedelicRock you can dance to".

Now signed with Silvertone Records and working with producer John Leckie, their debut album ''The Stone Roses'' was released in 1989 to massive critical acclaim and huge commercial success, and is still regarded today as one of the best albums ever created by a British band. The record spawned several successful singles, such as "I Wanna Be Adored", "She Bangs the Drums" and "Waterfall", all major hits on both the UK Singles Chart and the newly implemented Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart in the United States. The Stone Roses embarked on a successful tour of England, which culminated in a huge outdoor gig on Spike Island attended by 27.000 people on 27 May 1990 (plagued by bad organisation and sound problems), and continued to release singles.

Ian Brown has since continued with a solo career, Squire carried on for a while with his new band The Seahorses before retiring from music in favour of painting, Mani's in PrimalScream now and Reni... kinda fell off the face of the planet or something.

While The Stone Roses' moment in the sun only lasted about two and half years and Madchester collapsed very quickly, their music remains critically acclaimed today, and their combination of Sixties-style guitar riffs and dance rhythms proved to be highly influential on {{Britpop}}. {{Oasis}} frontmen Noel and Liam Gallagher in particular are self-professed fans of the Stone Roses. The bandmembers themselves liked Oasis in return (Squire showed up at one of their concerts to play additional guitar on "Champagne Supernova" and Oasis borrowed Stone Roses equipment during the recording of ''Definitely Maybe''), but disliked the rest of the Britpop scene, calling them "Kensington art-wankers".

* ChorusOnlySong - "I Wanna Be Adored".



* CreatorKiller - The sales and critical indifference to ''Second Coming'' did not help the band, and they broke up few years afterwards after an ill-fated tour.



* ExecutiveMeddling - Silvertone Records' attempt to get more money by re-releasing singles and trying to stop the band from moving to another label. It arguably ruined their career due to the forced hiatus.



* NoExportForYou - The band canceled a plan tour of the USA in 1990 saying "America doesn't deserve us yet." That bit them in the arse later on when they toured the USA in support of ''Second Coming''.



* ThePeteBest - Andy Couzens and Peter Garner.



* ShortLivedBigImpact: They managed only two albums and yet were a big influence on many rock bands of the Nineties.

The sessions for a new album finally commenced in 1993 but were repeatedly hampered by personal turmoil, culminating in Leckie's departure and the relocation to Wales with engineers Simon Dawson and Paul Schroeder. The album, entitled ''Second Coming'', was finally released in 1994, seeing the Stone Roses break from their colourful, psychedelic dance-rock and moving towards a heavy blues-rock sound patterned after Music/LedZeppelin and Music/JimiHendrix. The album drew a lukewarm reception with critics (a main criticism towards it being "endless soloing" on Squire's behalf) and only moderate commercial success, although first single "Love Spreads" became the band's highest charting single in their entire career.

The Stone Roses were an AlternativeRock band from [[FootballPopMusicAndFlatCaps Manchester]], known primarily for being the TropeCodifier for the Madchester movement in the late [[TheEighties eighties]] and early [[TheNineties nineties]], despite the fact that they [[BlatantLies did not consider themselves members of the Madchester scene]].
