It's what the world was waiting for - and The Stone Roses announced this morning that their first new music since 1994's Second Coming would be arriving.
So is the third coming, in a recorded sense, worth the hype?
We listened in, and here's our first listen review - although we'll remember not to judge too early - after all, the press was none too impressive at first for their debut album...
First up: it's called All For One. Potential for being used in a future Three Muskateers reboot.
-It's been produced by highly-regarded hitmaker Paul Epworth - this bodes well
-JOHN SQUIRE IS BACK WITH A JANGLY RIFF
-"All for one and one for all, if we all join hands we'll make a wall"
-This is very much first album territory, very sixties stuff. Lovely drum shuffle groove from Reni
-Ian Brown is singing with a more 'pop' style than he has in years
-Mani's bassline is pretty cool as well, nicely walking around
-It's actually very reminiscent of their non-first album early stuff - Mersey Paradise and the like
"All for one and one for all, if we all join hands we'll make a wall". This is being repeated a lot. Good line though.
-NICE BIT OF FLANGE EFFECT THERE LADS
-John Squire just couldn't resist a solo could he? Quite a short one though, compared to the Second Coming days
-This is ludicrously uplifting and joyous. Real summer anthem potential here
-And we're out - must be under three minutes (EDIT: it's actually 3:36 - still, it flies by doesn't it?)
That's a really cool song. Not trying too hard. Doing its Stone Roses thing.
It definitely wasn't rubbish, and that in itself is a relief.
WELL DONE GUYS
