    I've never really been into Ian Brown or the Stone Roses for that matter. I'm more of a Radiohead person. But after listening to this album I can't stop playing it. Awesome.

  1. No song is quite right: a lyric about angels or elephants here, a trip-hop beat there, and even the Milky Way would blush.

    Somewhere in there Brown's murmurous vocals and the lyrics tend to get lost. [Sep 2001, p.99]
  3. An improvement over his lo-fi solo debut and his over-produced second disc, but it misses as often as it hits.
