Having gone through the mill with his former musical colleagues, it seems that Ian Brown has reappeared with what the world actually was waiting for. He has come up with tunes like "Corpses in Their Mouths" and "Ice Cold Cube", getting the message across with just as much feeling as any other legend. As a debut solo record, all signs point to the same thing - this man is a true genius.

This is a fantastic debut album from someone with imagination, invention, and guts to make the music he really wants. The album is lo-fi and the better for it as what else could follow 'Second Coming' in terms of style. This is music which challenges your concept of commercial music and the current production values which dominate the charts. The songs are great especially the vented spleen against John Squire. 'What Happened to Ya' (comparable to the Roses 'Tightrope') is funky and bluesy and great. 'Lions' which some reviewers don't appear to get is the most political song done by a British artist in over 20 years, "There are no Lions in England", there are no leaders, there are no truely great individuals running this country. This is anti-establishment with wit. Enjoy this album at a decently high volume.

I'm ten years too late but this is impressive stuff from the Monkey King.

This album dispells all doubts about who was the true genius behind the Roses - Master Ian Brown!

I've read some comments about the albums alledged lo-fi production values; don't let that put you off. There is real quality here.

After four listenings (for real!), stand out tracks are 'My Star', 'Lions', 'Corpses in their mouth', 'Nah Nah' and 'Ice cold cube'. It shouldn't really be that surprising but the lyrics are inspired. 'My Star' in particular (I vaguely remember it as a single) is awesome. That perfect mix of sci-fi, cosomology, imperialism and political comment. By the way, Aziz Ibrahim's guitar is a great foil to the great man's voice.

I'm off to buy up the rest of the back-catalogue.

Brown was magical in The Stone Roses, and so we all had high expectations of this album. For many, he failed to live up to these expectations, but In my opinion, Brown's style is different, but equally superb. It's a bitter album detailing the legacy John Squire dumped on Brown. King Monkey isn't scared to try out new things here. If you want more Stone Roses style, you'll be dissapointed, but if you liked the singles, you'll love this Solo Debut Masterpiece.

As a debut album this is rather very good.Ian Browns unique lyrical style and singing style all stand out.The tracks Corpses In Their Mouths and Nah Nah are the highlights of the album and its worth purchasing it for this reason alone.

The man, the legend - I'm 35 and lets be honest 'The Stone Roses' IS the greatest album ever recorded. I remember this album when I bought it and I remember saying to my mates 'Corpses In Their Mouths' its just like the roses! I recently bought the rest of Ian Brown's albums. Quality - this man is the real front man! the absolute legend - Ian Brown is class and in years to come his albums will gain more recognition, makes you realise who the creative one was in the Roses - pure genius!

it would be better if this album could be rated out of 10. I would have given it 7. there are four or five solid songs on this album, and Brown's vocals are definitely better. but songs like lions and sunshine are poor, and the album consequently loses marks.

this album is an absolutely fantastic journey of funk soul as it captures the imagination with its opening intro and then the delightful my star followed by my personal favourite of cant see me gets the album of to a fantastic start and then just before the rock influence begins and ends with the beautifully deep pile dreams. An absolute stunner of an album - even john lennon would have been proud to have written Corpes in their mouths
