12 Days of Chartmas 2022 Day 8 Slot 2: Made of Stone

Hello everyone! It’s been a long time since I’ve wanted to start charting this album and with the collaboration with Yaniv we can now proudly say we have completed… well, some more of The Stone Roses’s self-titled debut album! The Stone Roses didn’t just write a couple of solid hits and call it a day – this album single-handedly started the “madchester” music scene and led to the inspiration of an entire generation of alternative sound. Not many outside of 90s alternative buffs really truly understand just how important this album was when it came out, and despite The Stone Roses only ever releasing two LPs, they managed to solidify themselves in rock legacy.

To compliment the already-existing “She Bangs the Drums” and “Waterfall”, we bring you four more of the 11, 12, or 13-track album (depending on which version you own). Take it easy with the slow and steady hit “I Wanna Be Adored”, the melancholic “Made of Stone”, the upbeat love song “This Is the One”, and the tricky but fun epic of “I Am the Resurrection”!

If for whatever reason you decide to look at the metadata for the song you’ll notice that the track numbers for all but “I Wanna Be Adored” are a number higher than the original U.K. release, and if you know anything about this album, you’ll probably correctly guess that we’ve made room for the U.S. release that includes “Elephant Stone”… stay tuned for the rest of this magnificent opus magnum!

  1. Thank you both for all the effort that went into this! Great album, and I’m especially looking forward to playing I Am the Resurrection, which is one of my all-time favorite album closers. Thanks again!
