#186: Second Coming by The Stone Roses

August 5, 2014

This week we revisit the 1994 release Second Coming by The Stone Roses. Joining us to dissect this divisive sophomore release is old friend and music professor Neal Schmitt, who provides a deep knowledge of band and provides insight into the recording technology that went into an album that sounds before it's time while borrowing heavily from earlier influences. That leads us into an extended discussion of other 90s bands and artists who either surpassed expectations on their second albums, or sank like the proverbial stone.
