Paul Weller

Cracking new album from Weller , who is enjoying a real career high. What with 22 Dreams and Wake Up The Nation, Sonic Kicks tops a great trilogy from Weller. Saw him at the Roundhouse a few weeks back. Took a risk playing the new album in its entirety but pulled it off. Once a mod always a mod.

stanley road still stands out for me. i dont think he will recreate that. Whilst the new stuff is good Stanley Road was just awesome i thought.

Great to see him getting some more recognition of late. Legend.

Agree with all of that. Along with Wild Wood, Stanley Road is a personal fave. And whilst a lot of his newer stuff isn't my cuppa tea he's got my respect for trying to continually innovate his style.

Havent got his latest album - really love his early solo stuff including Paul Weller and Wild Wood. Also really liked bits of As is Now and 22 Dreams.

Still enjoy listening to his debut solo album and Wild Wood is a classic. Recently downloaded the 4 disc Weller BBC sessions which is great and has some real live gems on it. Have to say that Sonic Kicks is superb , very eclectic, innovative and well worth purchasing.

I never got the hype about Stanley Road or Wild Wood.

But I have loved each of his last three albums, and Sonik Kicks is the best of them yet.

I disagree, actually. Sonik Kicks is nothing like the mod sound. I think he's been plagued with that label for too long and now he deserves recognition for stepping out of that genre and into the more experimental rock genre.

I was talking more of his look and philosophy than the style of music.

It would be boring if we were all the same so with that I think he's overrated. However, he's a proper singer/songwriter so I'd rather have him than the terrible manafactured girl / boy band fivesomes

Just listening to a selection of Weller albums and I have to ask isn't he under rated? This guy has all the attributes that the music media salivate over typically - longevity, real musician and has evolved along with and to some extent has helped evolve popular music for over 40 years. Others are put on a pedestal and regularly worshiped but I just don't get that feeling re Weller somehow.

Is this just because I am over impressed or is it because he is a musician first and a reluctant star second and even the music media these days are besotted with that aspect more than the music.

I struggle to find an album that he is on that I don't like or at least appreciate in the sense that you can see his pushing the edges of the envelope. I even like the Style Council albums (I realise that I am probably alone on that one and my street cred plummetted as I wrote that ).

Whatever, I think he is class and especially live. Saw him twice in New York and have tickets for his Leeds gig. Nice one.

Weller is a legend and in my eyes is up there amongst the best singer/songwriters. The stuff he wrote especially with The Jam at such a young age I don't think we will see the likes of again.

I like some of his solo stuff, more so when he was in The Jam though. I know I should like him more than I do, but personally I find most of his albums a bit of a drag.

I'm a bit behind with Weller. Is he still channeling the spirit of Steve Marriot?

Not sure about the spirit of Marriott but for me, there's 2 or 3 truly outstanding songs on every album he's done - adds up to quite a few songs.
Was good to see his latest on the big screen before Stoke away.
