About this album

Second Coming is an album released on December 5, 1994 in the UK and early 1995 in the US by The Stone Roses. The album was released on Geffen Records. It went platinum in the UK and sold 1 million copies worldwide. The album was dedicated to Philip Hall, the band’s publicist, who died of cancer in 1993. It was recorded at Forge Studios in Oswestry, Shropshire and Rockfield Studios near Monmouth in Wales between 1992 and 1994. On cassette tape and vinyl record it was a double album.

The second album by the influential Manchester four-piece, it suffered greatly at the time from the sheer weight of expectation generated by both the 5½ year gap between it and the band’s eponymous debut, and the band’s withdrawal from the live arena for 4½ of those years. In addition, The Stone Roses made their return in a changed musical environment, with the UK newly-ensconced in Britpop with Blur and Oasis as the premier rock bands of the day. The album reached number 4 in the UK Album Chart.

Second Coming features tribal rhythms, 1970s-style extended guitar riffs, funky rock/blues numbers with jazz elements and campfire style songs such as “Your Star Will Shine” and “Tightrope” that hint at the bands rural surroundings at the time (the band moved to Wales to make the album). As the line-up began to crumble, three singles (“Love Spreads”, “Ten Storey Love Song”, and “Begging You”) from the album were released in the UK.

    I love so much this album...it's one of my favs, definitely an agressive sound compare with the previous album and so much psychedelia around.

    Coming from a completely non-biased position where I can compare both albums equally, I find the debut album completely mellow and boring to this one. The quitar riffs and atmosphere on Second Coming are some of the best I've heard and they make the album much more appealing.

    This album has aged better than the debut. Both great albums though, wonder what the next one will be like?

    "Love Spreads" is one of the finest guitar jams that Esquire has made. That slide-work in drop D is so fuckin' cool.
