  • Summary: The guitarist for the legendary Manchester outfit The Stone Roses emerges with his very first solo album (after the breakup of his less successful second band, the Seahorses). It also marks the first appearance of Squire as a vocalist, as he sings on each of these 10 tracks.

  1. Positive: 2 out of 7

  1. A brazen, heartwarming, classic '70s bardic rock album, spirited enough to compete with and instruct the Ashcrofts and Gallaghers.
  2. Sadly, there’s no escaping the fact that Squire’s solo debut is a one-paced, uni-directional affair.

    This bloody enormous rock demeanour means Stone Roses fans may not be amused. [Oct 2002, p.96]
  4. He still fires the occasional lyrical blank and his guitar playing has less of the sparks of the past, instead settling into a role complementing the songs rather than dominating them.
  5. If you can get over the voice--and it is not a lovely thing--Time Changes Everything at least has curiosity value. [Oct 2002, p.104]
  6. 20
    Squire's voice is awful, while his music and lyrics are those of a busker. [Nov 2002, p.113]
  7. If this was the work of a new artist it's debatable whether it would even have seen the light of day, and it's certainly unlikely we'd've felt the need to even comment on it.
