Like Primal Scream, the Stone Roses were important players in the British rave scene. This is the sort of psychedelic proto-indie rock that is meant to fill a room and reverberate off the walls. This album combines the epic sense of space found in modern trance music with cool guitar riffs and airy Psychocandy-like vocals. The opening four tracks, no matter how many times I listen to them, still have the ability to give me goosebumps on a 95 degree day. This album helped bridge the gap as rock slowly turned into electronic music – no small achievement.
