  1. Q Magazine
    The less devout should keep a pinch of salt on stand-by. [Oct 2007, p.100]
  2. Ian Brown’s fifth solo album is about the big issues. And while he's picked all the right targets, lyrically and musically it’s still a bit disappointing.
  3. Sadly, for all the passion and insight of his lyrical aspersions here, a lot of the messages are left a tad subdued by the conveyor belt plod orchestration.
  4. 60
    More memorable for famous guests than fine tunes, The World Is Yours does not diminish Brown’s reputation, but it lacks the exotic, adventurous reach of his best work.
  5. Although Brown is to be commended for braving topics that other songwriters would fear to tread, he has a habit of expressing his sentiments in the most laughably simplistic terms.
  6. Mojo
    The World is Yours falls too short. [October 2007, p.102]
  7. The World Is Yours is one of the year's worst albums.
