Product Description

Product Description

IAN BROWN Golden Greats (1999 UK 11-track enhanced CD album - The follow-up to his solo album Unfinished Monkey Business Golden Greats includes the singles Love Like A Fountain Dolphins Were Monkeys Golden Gaze plus the Love LikeA Fountain CD-Rom Video with a picture / lyric inner)

Amazon.co.uk

When the Stone Roses disbanded shortly after Second Coming, few people expected to hear any more from Ian Brown. After all, it was guitarist John Squire who had the talent, and Ian was a poor singer at best. It was rather unexpected, then, when the King Monkey's lo-fi debut, Unfinished Monkey Business, made a minor splash upon its release; at the very least, it was much better than Squire's dreadfully dreary Seahorses. Golden Greats effectively picks up where Unfinished left off, albeit with more emphasis on production this time around. Guitars, keyboards and samples abound in this trippy, groovy and occasionally rock & roll throwback to the heyday of acid house, the very scene that originally spawned the Stone Roses. It's also a more optimistic album than his debut, with the exception of the rather petty "Babasonicos", but tucked as it is at the end of the album, it's fairly easy to overlook. --Robert Burrow

Never mind golden, this album is platinum. The best album i have ever heard by a long shot. As a hardened roses fan i never imagined that brown could match and indeed better anything the roses created. This album brings together the originality of the roses and excels to another level with its unbelievel combination of psychodelic rock and dance. The combination of this and browns voice is somehow beautiful. If Brown never creates another record he can be completely satisfied with what he has achieved.But please make more!

A welcome departure from Unfinished Monkey Business's earthy studio recorded feel. Golden greats has a full 24 track production. There's a lot to listen 'in there' with some high points reached that remind you of the better 'roses' days - The track dolphins were monkeys is a perfect example, it starts off with a moody feel then kicks in with an up-tempo good time groove, with the lyrics sounding like the Ian Brown of 'One Love' era... he should definately do more tracks like this! Any Roses fans and Brown fans must buy this album! - it's the best thing an ex roses member has put out since the debut roses album

WOW! This album is his best. Nobody expected Ian to come back with an album of such class, such excitement but that is exactly what he HAS done. Getting High is arguably the best track, with exciting guiter inserts and a catchy tune, its a worthy album starter and sets you off on a journey, which with superb songs all the way through, you will take again and again. If you haven't got it, get it. KING MONKEY is the best.

I cannot put into words the love I have for this album. It is just so perfectly produced. The lyrical content is relatively simple, but well thought out, The music is enduring and so beautifully layered. I can listen to it over and over again and it never grows tiresome. Ian never follows the crowd - he sets his own agenda and does what he wants and this makes for some truly astonishing pop music. If only one british band/group/solo artist brought out an album that was as good as this every year I would be happy, but unfortunatly we have to put up with the endless stream of drivel that passes for 'classic' British albums.

Nearly all other British artists are lazy and boring apart from Ian Brown and Thom Yorke.

The man is back and sounding better than ever,each track is completely different from each other with a multitude of different styles blending together on one album, who would have thought at this stage in his career Ian Brown would still be making progressive new music. The standout tracks on the album are:Getting High, Love Like a Fountain, Set My Baby Free and Dolphins were Monkeys(or as Ian says "Dolphins were Moonkees") Get out and Buy this now.

As the title suggests, not only are these tracks golden to the ear, but they are definately great. In addition to the inevitable stone roses influence of his early days, Ian Brown has clearly shown us his own musical direction and intentions. An excellent piece of work that somehow manages to sound even better each time you listen to it despite hitting home hard the first time. You don't need to be a hardened roses fan to love this album. Listen and enjoy ! !

With such strong songs as First World and Dolphins were Monkeys, Ian has carried his spacey feel on from Monkey Business. While the only true review could come from Iam himself, letting the music speak for him this time should shut up his critics. Still not produced to the level of quality his work deserves, this album should find popularity with his fans. Not as main stream as some of his work on Monkey business, this album should be up for an award by the end of the year; but cos its Ian Brown, I`m sure the media would warm to him more if he took up dance routines like Steps. Lets hope he can gain the acclaim he deserves with this album, without having to pander to the 'popular' music press.....
