Fans have been storing up a whopping 21 years of expectation for The Stone Roses' new single and the reviews are trickling in on social media...

'All for One' landed at 8pm on Thursday night and has been dividing opinion among fans.

The general consensus appears to be that while it's not their best work by a long shot, fans are reserving judgement on the band's comeback until the full album is released.

Some were of course overjoyed to hear any new material and revelled in the festival-friendliness of John Squire's guitar and Reni's drums.

However, others had expected something reminiscent of the best of their stunning debut album, and felt the song falls short lyrically and musically.
