Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Even at this point, over a decade and six albums into a firm and established solo career, the spectre of The Stone Roses never lies far from Ian Brown’s door (most recently reunion talk has gained traction and there was rumour that John Squire submitted a song for inclusion on My Way, which was ultimately rejected). While that might just speak strongly of the peerless Manchester group’s lasting mythology it pays little heed to Brown’s consistent, spirited and increasingly large body of work. This being Ian Brown though, he squares straight up to the ‘Roses chatter, referencing his old band in "For The Glory" as if to take the subject off the table. So here he goes again; shamanic of tone, dispensing stubbly testament atop a free-willed melee of genres, dusting off a plinth built largely from minimalist funk, hypnotic reverb-heavy percussion and 80s synthesised pop. Due to the latter this could actually turn out to be his most fashionable set yet, with the experience and belief he carries in excess elevating him above much of 2009’s more fleeting swathe of electro-pop. In amongst numerous highlights, "Crowning Of The Poor" slinks with grime malevolence and pointed synth jabs, tempered as ever by his zen ruminations, "In the Year 2525" gallops forth with the authority of mariachi horns and marching beats and the glorious "Always Remember Me" tumbles forward like a warm psychedelic waterfall. He’s still coming up roses then, at least. --James Berry

3.0 out of 5 stars His way, but not great 13 Nov 2011
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Music Of The Spheres was my first introduction to Ian Brown, and for the most part, the album is one of those gems you forget about, only to come back to with a fond smile; not perfect, but perfectly listenable. My Way isn't perfectly listenable, but it may grown on me over time. In a strange way, the former (Music Of The Spheres) feels more contemporary than the latter (My Way), but that might just be me, or that the over all sound is too close to The Stone Roses, who I have zero time for. Either way, I'm not sure. What I am sure about is that My Way just isn't as polished (lyrically or musically) or as musically diverse, which is a shame.

4.0 out of 5 stars nearly there 3 Dec 2009
By geordie
Format:Audio CD
I know the roses split up forever ago but I still cant think of Ian Brown as being anything other than the ex lead singer no matter how many solo albums he releases. Like many, I'm sure, I just cant help myself and snap up all of his new stuff in the hope that it'll live up to the stone roses days but sadly, in my opinion, bar the odd song or two, he has so far fallen well short - until now! don't get me wrong, I am not saying this is some kind of modern classic but its a very good album and one you can happily stick on and listen to all the way through without feeling the need to skip through 'fillers'. As my review title says, he's nearly there - nearly basck to his best - and this is definitely his best solo effort to date (although must confess I like his earlier efforts with UNKLE as well)

5.0 out of 5 stars The best, and more to come? 1 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
Forget the negative reviews by some of the national newspaper critics of one of our national treasure's best solo works to date. Forget the man was the singer for the Stone Roses. Forget some of those slightly dodgy tracks from some of his earlier albums and forget that he's four years off 50. Listen to this album. Not once. Twice. And then you'll want to hear it a third time. And then buy it. Support our music industry. Support what always makes you excited about music whether you're 16 years old, or 20 or 30 or 40. This is the freshest this Stone Rose has sounded for years. And I'm not one of the 'strange Ian Brown fans initiated into some weird sect' like the jealous and lazy Guardian reviewer suggests fans of decent music must be. This is a great little album. I wonder if those journos on our failing national newspapers have ever produced anything as good... or are they just as creatively bankrupt as their newspapers are financially? Support the music industry, it's products will make you happier than the news in our papers xxx

4.0 out of 5 stars Charm Offensive 30 Sep 2009
By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
There is much to enjoy in Mr Brown's new album 'My Way'.
It is inevitable that this should be so. He is a national
treasure after all. Dependably English down to his socks.

There are few surprises in this new collection but a bit
of good old-fashioned rock-solid predictability goes a long
way in our current MySpace wannabe fly-by-night culture.

The 12 tracks in this collection are mostly more than worthy.
My attention was drawn, in particular, to the wonderful
anthemic and structurally unpredictable 'Always Remember Me',
one of the finest songs in his estimable career.
'For The Glory', too, is a powerful and atmospheric composition.
Mr Brown's wonderfully inflexible drawl sets the song ablaze.

'Marathon Man' is a curious confection, somewhat redolent of
Pet Shop Boys in the chorus (a quite disconcerting experience!)

There are a few weaker moments : 'Own Brain' is a tad
lackluster and the remodeled 'In The Year 2525' is a bit
of a stinker truth-be-told.

It would be churlish, however, not to raise a cheer for the bulk
of what is on offer here.

'By All Means Necessary' delivers a real powerhouse performance
and final track 'So High' is just plain charming.

Ian Brown - CHARMING ! Just hold that thought for a moment....

4.0 out of 5 stars Ian Brown's best yet? 1 Oct 2009
By RjR
Format:Audio CD
Whilst Golden Greats remains my personal favourite Ian Brown album with Music Of The Spheres a close second, "My Way" is definitely the man's most consistent set yet and contains great tunes in abundance!

Highlights, to name but a few, include "Stellify" (as strong a lead-off single as "F.E.A.R.", IMO), "Just Like You" (pure pop perfection), "Always Remember Me" (a beautiful elegaic ballad that should lay the ghost of his former band to rest), "Vanity Kills" (a clever, very contemporary sounding little ditty originally written for Kanye West!), "For The Glory" (simply a fantastic song) and "Marathon Man" (a deeply funky driving track with an übercatchy chorus).

Special mention should also be made of long-term collaborator and co-writer, Dave McCracken's deft production touch (although it would have been nice to hear some more live drums as some tracks like "Laugh Now" sound a bit mechanical), Amanda Ghost's lovely backing vox on a couple of tracks and also Inder Goldfinger's ingenious and often subtle percussion work throughout.

After the (only relatively) disappointing The World Is Yours and the somewhat patchy Solarized, the man sounds re-energised and musically & lyrically inspired, delivering a great, semi-autobiographical and stylistically varied (mostly) feel-good pop opus par excellance, which almost plays like a greatest hits set such is the quality on offer.
