Album Review

Despite the unplugged boon of the '90s, Paul Weller steadfastly refused to succumb to the acoustic trend until the decade rolled over into the new millennium, and he did a solo tour shortly after the release of his fifth solo album, Heliocentric. This actually turns out to be a blessing in disguise, since Weller sounds relaxed and ready to confront his daunting back catalog, as happy to perform Jam tunes as he is to revisit his solo signatures. This results in a better solo live album than imaginable, since Weller is not only relaxed, he's loose and animated, giving an added dimension not just to his old Jam warhorses but from later Weller favorites. But the best thing about this album is that it sounds intimate and alive, as if he was performing his favorite songs in your living room — an immediacy that's more apparent in these stripped-down arrangements than they are in full-fledged band versions. This doesn't necessarily result in an album that's packed in revelations for the doubters, but if you've spent any time with Weller's career, from the Jam to his solo albums, this will be a warm reminder of why you've grown with Weller — and why it was worth it to devote the time.

Customer Reviews

Days of Speed - Absolute Class!

For all of us of a certain age who appreciate truly wonderful music this album is a must. Wellar is a modern day genius and every song on this album is sung with passion. Whether it's a tune from The Style Council or The Jam you can't help but be swept along by this fantastic singer/songwriter.

Time to reflect

Weller on tour? Acoustic--- lovin' it? Buy it! Revell in it. Listen, learn and love it. There are classics here which are delivered with poise, pernash and soul. Check out English rose and carnation a couple of Jam block busters. To be honest every song is sublime and needs relfection. Thanks Paul.

As the leader of the Jam, Paul Weller fronted the most popular British band of the punk era, influencing legions of English rockers ranging from his mod revival contemporaries to the Smiths in the '80s and Oasis in the '90s. During the final days of the Jam, he developed a fascination with Motown and soul, which led him to form the sophisti-pop group the Style Council in 1983. As the Style Council's career progressed, Weller's interest in soul developed into an infatuation with jazz-pop and house...
