Album Review

Our Favourite Shop, the Style Council's second proper album, was still quite eclectic, but it didn't seem as schizophrenically diverse as Cafe Bleu. Paul Weller had been able to incorporate his soul and jazz experiments into his songwriting, writing the fine "Walls Come Tumbling Down," "Come to Milton Keynes," "Boy Who Cried Wolf," and "Down in the Seine," which were some of his best songs for the Style Council. The occasional misguided experiment remained — the stiff funk of "The Internationalists" and the self-righteous "The Stand Up Comic's Instructions" were particularly embarrassing — but the record was more cohesive and stronger than the debut. In America, the album was released without "Our Favourite Shop" and retitled Internationalists. [The 2006 Polydor edition greatly expands the original track listing by including a 21-track bonus CD.]

My favourite album

The boys did us proud. There are classics here, all gone away, a stones throw, a man of (truly inspirational - we could all name someone). To be honest I could name the rest of the album, I seriously love it. Down in the seine is wonderful, I don't like Lennie henry on no 6 but that's just me - I'm sure dawn love'd it. Out of the style councils's records this has to be close to the top. Enjoy.

great but omits 2 brilliant songs

I got this as i grew up listening to the jam and style council
My only critisizm is that long hot summer and speak like a child isnt on it.
But still very very good
No one sings with as much passion as Paul Weller.

Weller wanted to incorporate more elements of soul, R&B, and jazz into his songwriting, which is something he felt his punk-oriented bandmates were incapable of performing. In order to pursue this musical direction, he teamed up in 1983 with keyboardist Mick Talbot, a former member of the mod revival...
