By the time the long, throbbing concert finale begins, there is no doubt that Mr. Brown's intensity has not faded over the years and that the Stone Roses' breakup was a serious loss.
Is Meadows' Made of Stone a fanboy movie? Absolutely and unashamedly.
There's a marvellous little film lurking inside Shane Meadows's loving documentary The Stone Roses: Made Of Stone but you have to get through some slush to find it.
Energetic and upbeat, this draws a fringe over why the band keep self-destructing, making it uninsightful, particularly to the uninitiated. But, hey, let's be honest: who else but true fans are going to watch it anyway?
"Made of Stone" is packed wall-to-wall with performance footage past and present. The reunited band proves to be quite muscular, and the tunes have lost none of their luster.
Some may find Meadow's lack of journalistic rigour frustrating, but the filmmaker has ultimately created something different - a heartfelt tribute to one of Britain's most important bands, as seen through the eyes of its fans.
Made of Stone is a faithful, fan's-eye account of the band's return that also serves as a good primer in their music and their massive influence for the uninitiated.
What Meadows has produced in effect is the cinematic version of those glossy brochures that go on sale at high-end concert venues.
This is very much a fan's-eye view of the Roses. But Meadows' lack of critical distance from his subject pays off in spades by allowing him to capture the passion the Roses inspire in their fans.
It would be hard to deliver a more worthless documentary about The Stone Roses than the one Shane Meadows serves up here.
There is little for those new to the band, whose appeal and individual characters go undefined.
Made by a fan for fans, this documentary explores the iconic English rock band through raw adoration rather than a detailed narrative.
