Like EMMA POLLOCK last week, IAN BROWN is best-known for his work as part of an ensemble -- in his case, the some-would-say-seminal STONE ROSES (1985-1996). We'll leave it to others to decide if that Manchester band deserves its oh-so-breathless reputation. At the moment, that's none of our concern.
Because, 'round these parts (2005- ), we like to live in the here-and-now (2007) (not true... at all). Therefore, we are all-but-obligated to pretend that the Stone Roses (1985-1996) never existed, all the better to judge their former lead singer's new solo offering, THE WORLD IS YOURS (2007).
As for said judgement, we'll leave that to others. Because, 'round these parts (2005- ), we like to lazily ride/straddle fences (true... too true). (We'll even leave it to you to judge whether it should be "judgement" or "judgment." The world's options are onerous -- music-wise, time-wise, and otherwise.)
