Hackskeptic’s 500 Greatest Songs: Ian Brown – F.E.A.R. (2001)

296 – Ian Brown – F.E.A.R. (2001)
Written by Ian Brown, Dave McCracken and Dave Colquhoun
Produced by Francis Dunnery
Label – Polydor

The repeated acrostic lyric isn’t the only sensational moment from this sublime song. Dunnery’s production and arrangement manages to out verve The Verve. More than a decade on from the glory years, the monkey man was back with this deftly performed anthem.
