  • Building up momentum on his first two solo albums, Ian Brown hit a creative stride with 2002's MUSIC OF THE SPHERES, a disc that garnered the former Stone Roses singer his best reviews since striking out on his own in the late 1990s. Unlike on past outings, the Madchester icon leaves all instrumentation to a solid crew of backing musicians, most notably keyboardist/programmer Dave McCracken, a holdover from GOLDEN GREATS who is key in shaping this record's dreamy, electronica-rooted sound. While the string-laden opener "F.E.A.R." is reminiscent of the Verve's "Bittersweet Symphony," its burbling techno elements give the song an intriguing synthetic edge. Other highlights include "Stardust," a shimmering, mid-tempo track that ranks among Brown's finest tunes, and "Whispers," another fascinating composition that deftly mixes orchestral and electronic touches. A strong collection of ambitious songs, SPHERES sets straight anyone who still doubted that Brown was a viable solo artist. (Note: The 2006 reissue presents an enhanced bonus disc that features remixes by acts such as U.N.K.L.E. and Nightmares on Wax, along with video and interview footage.)
