Album Review

Paul Weller deservedly regained his status as the Modfather with his second solo album, Wild Wood. Actually, the album is only tangentially related to mod, since Weller picks up on the classicism of his debut, adding heavy elements of pastoral British folk and Traffic-styled trippiness. Add to that a yearning introspection and a clean production that nevertheless feels a little rustic, even homemade, and the result is his first true masterwork since ending the Jam. The great irony of the record is that many of the songs — "Has My Fire Really Gone Out?," "Can You Heal Us (Holy Man)" — question his motivation and, as is apparent in his spirited performances, he reawakened his music by writing these searching songs. Though this isn't as adventurous as the Style Council, it succeeds on its own terms, and winds up being a great testament from an artist entering middle age. And, it helped kick off the trad rock that dominated British music during the '90s.

Going Wild for 'Wild Wood'

I bought this Album recently from the ITunes store to add to my ever increasing collection and can't stop playing it. It's typical Paul Weller, full of crafted sonwriting envoloped with excellant guitar work. After its release in 1994 it still has that fresh feel to it, that's echoed in his recent album 'as is now'. Anyone who is curious of Paul Weller will not be disappointed.


Superb, absolutely superb. I bought this back in 1993 or whatever it was and i still play it now. i often say that if i had to keep one cd out of my 300 odd it would be this one. My No1 of all time.


Lyrically this is one of the very best albums ever, not in an iconic "we dont need no education" way but in a way that makes you think that youve discovered a truly great song that many sadly will never hear. Forget all the modern electro indie pop. Weller+acoustic guitar=greatness. His reception at glastonbury was lukewarm and disgraceful for a man of his standing. Download and listen to it again and again and again and again.

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...
