Like all three of Ian Brown's solo albums, Remixes of the Spheres, from 2001's Music of the Spheres, would be a work of genius were it not for the all the niggling imperfections. In among the genuine remixes, the scraped together fillers--former Japan-only track "Superstar", the live version of "El Mundo Pequeno"--are easy to spot. And it's impossible not to question the wisdom of including three instrumentals, when Brown's trump card is always his deadpan, pseudo-spiritual ramblings. Yet, as is Brown's way, when it's good, it's exceptional.

In the hands of Nightmares on Wax, "The Gravy Train"--Brown's sulky dismissal of the vacuous lifestyles of the rich and famous--slopes to a seedy slouch that heightens his disdain. Cedar Blue's clicks, bleeps and backwards loop elevate "Forever and a Day" to a zero gravity lullaby that Air would be proud of and under Freelance Hell Raiser the sketchy "Northern Lights" becomes a fully formed ode to love with a sci-fi punk twist. Ultimately though, it's the standout from Music of the Spheres, "F.E.A.R", that's the main prize. Outstripping anything else James Lavelle's U.N.K.L.E have done in recent memory, this recasting of the acronym mantra as a Clubbed-to-Death-style epic of driving beats and majestically melancholic strings is second only to the original. And that was indeed an unequivocal work of genius. --Dan Gennoe

I truly wish this had been released as the original album. The only song not improved by the remixing here is "Gravy Train" which for me was the standout track of "Music of the Spheres." F.E.A.R. is possibly the best thing I've heard UNKLE do since "Be There" and that is saying something. "Northern Lights" actually sounds like song now rather than a disemboweled chanted mantra despite starting worryingly like the appalling 808 State remix of "Made of Stone." But just wait... "Forever and A Day" has a backwards section to rival "Full Fathom Five" and "Don't Stop"... then when things seemed to have peaked your hit with what has to be the best thing any of the ex-Stone Roses have done to date... "Shadow of A Saint" was good on the parent album but here it is insanely good. This is a stormer of track that goes from Brown's trademark electronic sound of now into a classic guitar riff (stolen from "Getting High" off the Golden Greats ablum) that adds the urgency and edge to take the man back up into the stratosphere where he belongs. You hear this and remember why people saying Ian Brown cannot sing can be shurgged off with a glance that says... it's just more important than that.
Okay so the instrumental versions are a bit of a con... but do sound good and I'm sure there are DJ's out there who will make good use of it (it'd be interesting to hear "The Streets" get hold of "F.E.A.R", all lush strings, bongos and reverse loops and deep dub bass).
The live version of "El Mundo Pequeno" is a sweet touch and enjoyable rather than great while new live track "Cokane In My Brain" sounds storming with two-tone ska revivalists getting smacked about by a scratch pervert while the King of Cool gives another anti-hymn to the false God of Columbia.

Format: Audio CD
Ian Browns latest effort is a remix of his previous album "Music of the Spheres", at first look, it seems little more than a kind of mid way break/ time killer i.e. killing more time until the release of his next album, to keep the punters happy. But the album dose have some high points, its best probably being the Unkle remix of F.E.A.R, which is an up tempo/rehash of the original, but sorry James Levelle, its not a patch on the original! However, unlike many of Ian Browns previous albums, the remix CD actually flows along really nicely, and you may find yourself playing it more than the original, as it seems to offer greater depth and musical scope. But essentially it’s really only for the hard nose Ian Brown fan. If this is going to be your first Brown experience I would go for anyone of his other albums, as this is his weakest album to date, although, as I say, it’s still pretty good. Bring on the next album though Mr. Brown! What would be a good idea though would be a complete album/collaboration between Ian Brown and Unkle, weather it be remixes or originals!!!

Wasn't sure what to expect from this remix album, but as 'Music
OTS' was my fave Ian Brown solo album so far, I decided to give it a try. It starts with 5 fantastics remixes of some of the best tracks from 'Music OTS'. Then a 'new song', which was a previous B-side and is great. My Star 2002 gives new life to probably Brown's best song. 'Hear No' is the 'full' version, and it finally makes sense (unlike the Music OTS' version...)
Then the quality slips a bit, 3 instrumentals in the final 5 tracks... a version of El Mundo which is very similar to the original version, and a scratch track lasting less than 2 mins.
Overall, its a great CD if you liked 'Music OTS', and worth buying, but it could have been better, two of the best tracks
(Whispers, Bubbles) from Music OTS are missing, while other tracks (FEAR, Gravy Train) get two showings.
But, if Brown were to remix his other solo albums, I think I would buy them as well.

Really good remixes here. Worth having it even if you have listened to Music of the Spheres a hundred times. It's a reinvention with additional tracks. Love it.

Better than the original. It is remixed for people with new ideas and new hopes. It is justified in this changing world to have a variety in the music style.
