IAN BROWN My Way (Polydor) w AFTER politicallycharged album The World Is Yours, Brown is looking inwards and backwards. There's a defiant two-fingered salute to a former bandmate on Always Remember Me. "You walked yourself into the wilderness," he sings. "Those were the days when we had it all, and these are the times I've got so much more". It's not an overly bitter album, however, and in his cover of Zager And Evans' nihilistic In The Year 2525, he hasn't forgotten his conscience. And in Stellify, originally written for Rihanna, Brown has his best song since 2001's career-high FEAR. JD
