Comment: BRAND NEW CD + FAST SHIPPING: The next walking cultural phenomenon up to the under the influence microscope following Morrissey, is former Stone Roses shaker - maker Ian Brown. It's been a tough racket since the well-documented & untimely demise of the best band of the 90s but ian has successfully re-created his own space with his sparkling solo work. Now we all have the chance to see what really makes him move. Ian Brown proves he was born under a bad sign with a selection of heavy lyrical messages, from the gospel blues protestations of Dorothy Love Coates "99 and a half" to the aggression of the Clash, and a knowledge and love of the history of the (rare) groove. With the sexy bassline of Cymande and Osiris' seminally funky 'War on the Bullshit', joined together by a sack of reggae & raga beats, this is smart, sussed and soulful... front to end. Look out for further compilations in this series chosen by none other than Paul Weller, Paul Heaton and Bob Geldof...

 Don't expect a rock compilation

| | See all Vin2007's reviews (4)

I decided to buy this compilation by Ian Brown as he's one of my fave muscians and I love his work with the Stone Roses and his solo stuff to date. If people are expecting this compilation to just feature rock musicans then think again cos Ian Brown has a wide range of musical influences which are evident in his solo stuff. I would say this CD is a tale of two halfs. The first 8 tunes feature Hip-Hop with the opener from GZA, Rock with The Clash and reggae with Buju Banton and Junior Byles and others. The next 8 tunes are a mix of 60's Nothern Soul, Gospel and Soul. I really enjoyed listening to this CD as it gave me an insight into what influenced Ian Brown with my fave tunes coming from the first 8 tunes of the album the opener by GZA is great, 'Fade Away' and 'Compliment' are top reggae tunes. The next seven were ok with 'Too Late' being a fave of mine so all in all if u wanna know what influenced the great Ian Brown then buy this.
