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.

hip

love paul weller his music makes me smile brings me back to a time when things were cool and hip

As smooth as Rubber Soul

This record is everything the title describes, Wild Wood, warm and smooth worth a glass of fine wine to get away from the daily grind. Every song has a well written value. His best in my opinion. He's not the Jam or the Style Councel, he is just Paul Weller at his best!

Fantastic Album

"Sunflower" and "Wild Wood" are two of my all-time favorite songs.

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...
