This album is a faithful record of Weller's recent accoustic tours. It finds the man in good humour and equally good voice as he dips into his extensive back catalogue. At last he has started to embrace the calls for Jam and Style Council numbers, realising that far from being a millstone around his neck, they should be celebrated. And celebrated they are; English Rose, Down in the Seine, Headstart for Happiness, That's Entertainment and Town Called Malice sound fresh and sit well alongside the solo material. Talking of which, this is fully explored from the sublime Above the Clouds from his eponomous solo debut through to the equally sublime Love-Less from last year's Heliocentric. Along the way clasics singles such as You Do Something to Me and Wild Wood are surrounded by popular B-sides and stripped down versions of album tracks. I've always wanted Weller to do this kind of tour, and this album will serve as a lasting tribute to the fact that it was a brave but ultimately rewarding idea. Now that's entertainment.

I've owned Days of Speed for three years and never tire of it - it's easily the most played CD in my collection. Most of the songs sound better live - and from Weller's mature chords - than they do on the studio albums. There are many stand outs but Science and English Rose in particular are real gems. I read Amazon's review and what a pile of old bollocks from the maudlin git who wrote it. If you only ever get one Weller album, make it this one. But once you've bought it, I doubt you'll be able to stop at just one and you'll soon be back for the entire discography. Disclaimer: I'm a sad old Weller freak and own just about anything the man has ever produced.

2001 saw Paul Weller embark on an accoustic tour of Europe, USA and eventually the UK. Contained on this album are the definitive live versions from this tour collected. What makes this album unique is that Weller returns to his past, something he has never liked to do before. What the listener gets is unique versions of classics like Town Called Malice and English Rose from his Jam back catalogue and Headstart for Happiness and Down in the Seine from his Style Council past. This is Weller presenting his songs unplugged and in the raw, he has added new sparkle to old classics, breathed new life into some great songs. Live albums never sounded so good!

This album reviews the best of Wellers releases in a live set. It is a very good recording considering its live, but you cant expect any less from Weller. It is for certian, for Weller maniacs only. If you like "Wild Wood Live" you will like "Days Of Speed. It kicks off with "Out of the Sinking" an excellent place to start. Weller mixes up his tracks fromm past and previous albums. "A town called Malice" is a superurb up to date version of Weller singing live with his husky voice and guitar skills. Theres no heavy drum and bass, just Weller and his trusty guitar . It has more of his solo tracks on rather than past Style Council and Jam. Would've been nice if he had done a double album with a GIANT mixture of upto date remixes of present and past songs. My favorite has to be "clues" and "My English Rose". All of the tracks are brilliant. But if your not a Weller fan I suggest you buy some original Weller solo cd's first. Wild Wood is a good place to start or Paul Weller.
Overall a brilliant album. I just hope its not his last.

This album, is a sheer, outstanding, Weller Classic. One way or another, anyone who cant hear that, has, in MY OPINION (of course I'm allowed to be as subjective as the main reviewer here) no ear for music at all.
THIS ALBUM IS A MUST HAVE ADDITION, to the entire Weller armoury of musical warfare..., and anyone who misses out because of the shallow, and somewhat deaf opinions above, is gonna regret not hearing the acoustic versions of all their favourites. Each track has been selectively and carefully put down onto a tiny disk of plastic for your aureal pleasure..... this one is great - GO BUY IT NOW!!

Mr Weller's songwriting credentials are not up for question in most quarters. What has troubled many of late has been the trudging, stodgy, wholegrain guitar music that has been churned out in both the studio and on the stage in the last 10 or so years.

"Days of Speed" showcases a run of fine songs delivered with soul, simplicity and just an acoustic guitar for backing.

Songs like "Everything Has A Price..." and "The Loved" shine up as great songs in this context.

Well worth a listen.

Days Of Speed is a great achievement. It is not only a collection of some of Paul Weller's best songs, (though I'm sure fans can think of some that are missing) it has captured the spirit of his live performances. As the old cliche goes Paul is like fine wine which has got better through the years, though this is not to say his classics (Town called Malice, Happiness) do not match up to his latest hits. The album is a true reflection of a great songwriter, singer and performer.

Paul Weller is at his best when he does acoustic, soothing Music. His Motown and Soul/funky music is good, but you cannot beat this album. Just sit back, with a beer, on a warm summers day, or curl up next to a fire, and listen. You will appreciate it to the maximum.
His acoustic skills are outstanding, manipulating chords to create a melody of beautiful sounds. His rough, but sensual voice give it such a unique edge. You have to buy this album.
