In fact, things played out the opposite way. Starting with 1998's "Unfinished Monkey Business", Brown released three solo albums that, stunningly, were actually pretty darn good, and suggested that he, and not Squire, had retained the soul and spirit of the Roses. A review in a British music weekly proclaimed that, while Brown was not as talented as Squire, at least, unlike Squire, he wasn't making "safe, conservative" music.Read more ›
If you're still trying to find "a roses' ghost" in his music today, well, you will not be satisfied with his current music pattern. Even if roses were still there by now, John - the leader of it - would be practicing his old magic art like always, to keep the band changing, and I'm pretty sure no one could keep him away from practicing the plans in his mind. Now he stands alone in the studio, he got no barrier.
<Marshall's house> is to some extent just like <stone roses>. It's something brand new. The idea and the method are both already very mature, and become a new style, --in spite of a short making-term. 20 years passing by, John's style went from simple to rich and go back to purifying again. And that is the beauty of this album.
If you don't like John's albums because of his rough voice, I get it. But as a singer, I applaud his singing attitude, and the ability to express the mood and idea in the songs. It's just brilliant and experienced.
Time never goes back. We could just look forwards. It's not words to comfort the heart, no, it's just the reality, and let's face it strongly. To repeat the trail of roses is not smart and not the right thing to do. What John accomplished is a progress of fulfilling himself, not a roses-journey again.

So close... Great songs, impressively played - could have been as good as the Seahorses album. He's written a wonderful bunch of songs, much better than his first solo album. Read morePublished on December 27, 2010 by AReader
There is some rewards on this CD musically, if you can get past this man's voice. He has incredible fortitude to actually sing and release the results for posterity. Read morePublished on March 13, 2007 by Patrick E. Turenne
