The worst singer I've ever endured live.
The guy simply cannot sing in tune. What's to like?
The line between said bands and the rave scene was blurred. I've only seen such resentment of this music from greasers.
Are you a greasy metal head?
I like a lot of his stuff.
Unfinished Monkey Business and Music of the Spheres are great albums and his other stuff is often "decent" though I couldn't deny his live singing is pretty atrocious...
There needed to be a slightly less enthusiastic, yet still positive answer on the poll.
Oh - and FWIW given that he has been called out as being a twat IRL on this thread - I bumped into him at Stanstead airport once whilst he was on his way back from a festival and he was very approachable. Had time for a quick chat and a picture etc, despite being obviously tired and with his missus and kid.
I like him because he evokes a time in my life that I got a lot of enjoyment out of. I liked the Stone Roses and because of that I retain some fondness for him but I'm not a big fan of his music. Some of it I like but it's usually played at mine when I'm thinking about that time rather than because I want to hear his dulcet tones.
what the fuck are you talking about? Resentment of what music? I loved the Stone Roses, Happy Monday, rave. I just think Ian Brown is shit.
And that makes me a geezer?
this thread makes me laugh
some people are such wallys
greaser not geezer
Well maybe it was reading this thread, but last night I had a terrible dream about Ian Brown.
I was about 18 and he was the age he is now - strangely my parents thought he has the ideal boyfriend
I also had another boyfriend who was a sort of pale imitation of IB - who I dumped when I got the real item.
Then I was eating something and suddenly all my teeth came out in one lump
and my one worry was "What will Ian think?"
I didn't mean to hit a nerve babe.
Just usually metalheads that were too into their own scene/snobby to take part in rave usually get upset like that IME.
Smoother blow jobs?
The logic of an Ian Brown fan.
sorry to expose your fuckwit generalisations quite so badly then
You weren't into metal during the rave scene? My apologies.
He was into Marillion.
We all have our crosses to bare!
about 6 years before rave, you cheeky young pup
They should have done a dance rave epic mix of Grendel
How's you lovely lady? Long time no speak
Your dream resolved a conflict. Ian will never happen for you, so it'll have to be the pathetic specimen for now.
Lavenders blue dilly dilly
and I suppose I will have to settle for the Brown lite version
I'm liking the new album, he's done a cover of In the Year 2525
I fucking hate the blokes music (or more specifically his voice) but for some reason I actually don't mind him.
Anyone heard his new single yet? First World Problems?
I'm pretty underwhelmed. I've generally preferred his solo stuff to most of the Stone Roses (except the weird Michael Jackson covers). Seems the NME readership for once is mostly with me on this.
Fans react to Ian Brown's new song 'First World Problems'
The production is hilariously bad. How anyone with his resources and experience can put out something so half-arsed I've no idea.
Whereas the lyrics are perfectly acceptable.
Hands and knees and oops a daisy. Driving everybody crazy.
Not heard it, but when I hear reviews like this I often think it might be one of those that is considered a classic in a few years' time.
