Released: September 2001
Ian Brown likes to write lyrics about the grander philosophical topics that run through his brain, and the results are often as cringe-inducing as being forced to watch every episode of The Office back to back while strapped in a Clockwork Orange-style seat and eyelid-priser combo. But in 'F.E.A.R.', everything fell into place for King Monkey, the repeated acronym expansions ("Forget everything and remember", etc) tumbling deftly over the kind of anthemic strings The Verve would murder for.
