Album Review

In many ways, Stanley Road is Wild Wood — Part Two, a continuation of the laidback, soul-inflected rock that dominated his previous albums. Named after the street where he grew up, Stanley Road could be seen as a return to Paul Weller's roots, yet his roots were in The Who and the Kinks, not in Traffic. (At this point, the sound of The Jam matters little in what his music sounds like.) Weller's music has always had R&B roots — the major difference with both Wild Wood and Stanley Road is how much he and his band stretch out.
