Ian Brown - The World Is Yours

Rating: 7/10
After one of British best band the Stone Roses, Brown released couple of solo records like amazing Golden Greats (2000) or the previous mellow Solarized (2004), sure these aren't enough for such an amazing idol. Some of us have a response for the wars, some of us don't. Now we've The World Is Yours which is a complete protest record consists of twelve tracks including the first single Illegal Attacks with Sinead O'Connor. Brown has enlisted the help of The Smiths and Happy Mondays' bassists Andy Rourke and Paul Ryder respectively, also legendary Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones and drummer Paul Cook. There are really good tracks, but political lyrics really don't make a record awesome or masterpiece. Someone must stop the war, that someone becomes all of us. I agree totally Ian Brown about Illegal Attacks, but tunes on the record are boring and repeating at times. The song named Eternal Flame reminds a hip hop song Familly Affair by Mary J. Blige, that's interesting. The whole record comes with beats, loops, some hooky electric guitars.
MM picks: Eternal Flame, Sweet Children
