Billie Jean - impressively poor

Holy geez, that is a terrible cover of Billie Jean. The rest isn't that bad, but damn. That's just embarrassing.

Personally I find this most of his stuff self indulgent, and not in a great Bowie kind of way. I really get tired of his voice. One of those guys who either moves you or annoys you. He annoys me. I can't relate to his experiences or his style of relating them. I can see why some people like him, just not my cup of tea.

"set my baby free" is a MUST download. Sounds like one of those trippy songs you hear in a volkswagon commercial..maybe it WAS! Billy Jean is fabulous and sexy..and Getting High..also sexy sexy sexy.

They Say All Music Guide

Whatever its flaws, Ian Brown’s debut album, Unfinished Monkey Business, suggested that he was the true visionary behind the Stone Roses, providing the wild mercurial ideas that were grounded by John Squire’s classicist song structures. Its sequel, Golden Greats, confirms that notion. Less song-oriented than its predecessor and overflowing with neo-psychedelic sonic textures and dance beats, Golden Greats floats between dazzling peaks and unformed, unrealized ideas that are nonetheless quite intriguing. Some may miss the clear hooks that characterized the Stone Roses (and even parts of Unfinished Monkey Business), but Brown sounds revitalized here and the result is a fresh, frequently exciting record. True, it can get a little indulgent and it’s not quite cutting edge (no matter how much he wishes it were), but that doesn’t distract from its very real virtues. At its best, the album boasts wonderfully, subtly crafted productions brimming with neat textures (the organ riff, Mellotron, and sampled strings on “Set My Baby Free” are a perfect example) that are intriguing on first listen and grow richer with repeated listens. Like its predecessor, Golden Greats meanders a bit too much and it places a little too much emphasis on surface, but when the surface sparkles like this, it’s hard to complain too loudly. [The album's 2005 edition included three videos, the single version of "Dolphins," remixes of "Dolphins" and "Love Like a Fountain," and somewhat unlikely -- but typically trippy -- cover versions of the Michael Jackson classics "Billie Jean" and "Thriller."] – Stephen Thomas Erlewine
