Editors’ Notes

With 2008's 22 Dreams, mod icon Paul Weller began a creative rebirth that's led to some of the most experimental material of his career. Always a top-shelf melody man and lyricist, Weller can now add sonic adventurer to his profile. The two-minute instrumental "Sleep of the Serene" is a mix of swooping tones and Mellotron activity that's pure modern psychedelia. That leads into a Mad Men–styled soul ballad ("By the Waters") that retains hints of The Style Council. The club beats and driving modern pop bass line give Weller a luxurious ride for "The Dangerous Age". It's been suggested that this is Weller's response to David Bowie's "Berlin Trilogy" (Low, "Heroes", Lodger), and there's a clear interest here in krautrock motorik rhythms. However, there's also an eclecticism that's difficult to quantify. "Study in Blue" imagines Portishead as a band of extroverts. "Around the Lake" drives down the motorway with a vengeance. "Be Happy Children" caps things off with a space-age soul hymn. Weller sounds refreshingly alive here with ideas and pleasure.

Customer Reviews

Simply the worst!!!

I couldn't wait for this to end! I'm a big Weller fan but have to say that this latest offering was a painful experience and couldn't wait for the experience to come to an end! It sounds like white noise! Sorry folks but I have to say if this is the best the Modfather can offer its time for the new breeds to come through as this has to be thee worst Paul Weller has given us by far!! Gutted!!

Weller delivers

With all the deftness of a master cratfsman, Weller follows 22 Dreams and Wake up the Nation to complete his hat-trick of classic long-player recordings. Sonik Kicks comes littered with power-pop gems and a quirky array of avant-garde electronically-shaped artefacts, confirming the Wellster as England's current no.1 songwriter and performer.Boom! Eat that soul!


creative, inventive, beautiful, this album just shows Paul Weller as an amazing artist, not afraid to move forward and try new things, if you want to live in the past and listen to SETTING SONS then don't buy it, go home, put your parker on and get your dusty record collection out...

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...
