It’s a proverbial “underrated” album IMO, very ambitious and largely successful in its attempt (led primarily by John Squire, the band’s guitarist) to take the band’s sound in a heavier blues-rock direction—though “Ten Storey Love Song” and “How Do You Sleep” are definitely in the vein of the first album. I love just about everything they recorded from 1987 through Second Coming. I also got to see them in Manchester in 2016, while staying at board member BillF’s house! (An absolutely delightful visit and host... among other things, Bill gave me and my girlfriend a guided tour of the city center.)

I agree it's underrated, but as Mjazzg said it was a direction change from the Manchester dance vibe. Since that's what put them on the map I could see where fans would be disappointed. I never saw them, unfortunately.

In a similar vein, I like the Charlatans UK a lot, too.

I think Squire in particular felt that “One Love,” their 1990 single that followed “Fools Gold,”’ was them beginning to hack out a dance sound and that they needed to try something different. I think many Roses fans wish they had continued in that vein, and they might have if not for the Silvertone court battle that contributed to their creative derailment. The first album is a luminous masterpiece, no doubt, and the other material from that era gathered on Turns Into Stone is just as transcendental. Second Coming disappointed me too to some degree when it first came out, but it’s really proved to be a grower over the years.

On a shoegaze bender tonight:

Although a collection of previously unreleased material, this holds together VERY well and is a solid addition to Dave's catalog

How do you like it? I listened to it once and it didn't grab me, and I've been following her for years.

I have mixed feelings about Carla as a vocalist, only own some of this despite loving early Stax.  I do have the Solomon Burke and Esther Phillips entries in this series and strongly recommend them. So I'm sure they did a good job on this one too.

They did, the whole series is beautifully executed.  My favorite is the Barbara Lewis set.

Took 2 -3 listens, but I like it now.
