Turns Into Stone is a compilation album by The Stone Roses released in 1992. It consists of early singles and B-sides that did not feature on their self-titled debut album. The compilation reached number 32 on the UK album chart.
The album's release was surrounded by controversy, as the Roses were in the middle of a legal battle with their then-record label, Silvertone. An injunction prevented the band from releasing any new material for several years afterward, during which Silvertone re-released many singles, including two separate versions of "Fools Gold", and releasing stand-alone singles from the first album that were not intended to be singles (such as the edited version of "I Am the Resurrection" featuring a drum machine instead of Reni's distinctive drumming).
Despite this, the album is seen in a positive light by Roses fans because it collects some of their best-known songs onto one CD, before a best-of compilation was even viable.
The title of the album is taken from the final lines of One Love: "What goes up must come down/Turns into dust or turns into stone".
The track Going Down was influenced by Jimi Hendrix song If 6 Was 9.
