Stone Roses Legacy Edition CD/DVD cover art

It’s the 20th anniversary of The Stone Roses’ self-titled album and Sony’s got a Legacy Edition out that’s a double CD, single DVD affair. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:

Meshing simple, exceedingly catchy hooks with rhythmic beats, The Stones Roses led the UK’s so-called “Madchester” scene straight into the U.S. with their eponymous debut. The Stone Roses achieved one of the most successful fusions of classic pop songwriting and acid house culture, and managed to snare fans from both genres. By the end of 1989, their debut had landed on many a top-ten list for that year; NME even declared it “The Greatest Album Of All Time.”

Though the band never realized the same triumphs on their second, and final album, repercussions of their debut album’s classic pop songwriting and bright riffs could be heard well into the next decade; scores of similar UK artists, including Oasis and Travis, owe their success and popularity in no small part to this seminal album which shaped a future genre of danceable, contemporary 60s-rooted pop music. Indeed, twenty years later, the album’s impact is still felt, demonstrating an influence across music, fashion, politics, and art to this day.
