Ian Brown

Ah can't get better than this... britpop royalty and politics.

The thing about Ian Brown is that he has never pulled any punches. He knew the Stone Roses were the greatest band ever, and said so. He talks lots of sh*t, but he's always ready to knock the tar out of anyone who stands against him, not matter how big they are. (Check the video proof: And he keeps that trend going here by going after political targets.

Besides his running his mouth, he has also been putting out consistently good if not great solo work and he's got another one that just came out. I don't have the whole record yet, but this track gets an 8.5. Bold faced and a bit of a tirade against the US involvement in Iraq, Ian still has something to say. And he's gonna say it. With a good beat.

Also check out his solo greatest hits collection, The Greatest. I give that an solid 8.

Ian Brown- Illegal Attacks

I would rarely recommend that someone download only select tracks from a record. This is mainly because you never know when the initial "bad song" on a record could end up being your favorite years later. So even at first glance, a weak track might be great in retrospect. So I usually say, just get the whole thing.

This is not the case with the new M.I.A. I won't go into my love hate feelings about MIA much, but I have usually been on the fence with her and most of her music. Good beats, annoying lyrics. Her persona has been a bit more of a focus for articles than her actual music, which isn't her fault per se, but it's hard to ignore. In other words, I'm not a huge fan, but always interested.

On her new record, MIA again makes me have to battle with the contradiction. There are tracks that I think are great and there are tracks that are awful. Painfully awful. So the new record, Kala gets a 6. The track below being the best. Of course, it's the one track produced by Timbaland. Of course.

Avoid "Jimmy" at all costs. Unless you love dancing at Euro clubs, wear too much cologne and still love OMC's "How Bizzare." Now that I said that, it will be a hit. Just watch.
