Biography

Modern Classics; the title said it all, really. A little tongue in cheek, perhaps, but he had a point. In just eight years as a solo artist, Paul Weller had created a body of work that not only matched the very best of his previous groups’ output, but also put him toe to toe – and frequently head and shoulders above – the crop of new bands claiming him as a hero. He’d ... Read more in Amazon's Paul Weller Store

Product Description

t is a fitting title: a high quality stylish collection featuring tracks taken from Paul’s albums of the last 15 years of his solo career. These 15 years have seen a constant artistic high, with each subsequent album release being heralded as ‘his best yet’. There are few artists with as many incarnations as Paul who can claim to have achieved such an ongoing renaissance, keeping each of their album releases sounding fresh and showered with plaudits. More Modern Classics’ is the long awaited follow up to 1998’s “Modern Classics” which showcased the first part of Paul Weller’s highly successful solo career. This album confirms Weller’s status as the most resilient survivor from punk’s class of '76 and outclassing and outperforming many of his earlier and later years’ contemporaries. It showcases his continuing progression as an artist, never afraid to take chances, move forward and buck trends – always staying fresh and transcending the zeitgeist. More Modern Classics continues to serve as a reminder of his wide range and gift for melody and song writing.

The more I listen to it the better it sounds. The only gripe I have is all the tracks are a bit 'samey'. I do like though that there is a thread of 'The Jam' sound throughout - that makes it better to listen to.

There's no denying that Paul Weller has had a cyclical career. From the highs of The Jam, he then found himself reaping diminishing returns, both commercially and critically, with The Style Council. So much so that by the end of the 1980's The Style Council were ignominiously dropped by Polydor which meant that Weller had to rebuild his career and reputation from scratch.

Most critics regarded him as a spent force by the early 1990's, but a run of solid albums - Wild Wood, Stanley Road and Heavy Soul - restored his critical and commercial fortunes, so that when his first solo compilation, Modern Classics, was released in 1998 it was able to boast a series of tracks that were very familiar to the record-buying public.

Since the late 1990's Weller has continued to tour and record regularly, but his profile has dropped again. So while this means that the track-listing of More Modern Classics might not contain too many songs that casual fans will instantly recognise, there's still considerable quality here.

"From The Floorboards Up", "Come On, Let's Go" and "Wake Up The Nation" are all flat-out Weller rockers that are typical of his Britpop peak in the mid 1990's. But as with his desire via The Style Council to move away from the straightjacket he found The Jam to be, there's plenty of other musical styles on offer here. "No Tears to Cry" is a little gem, a love-letter to the Northern Soul sound and "Sweet Pea, My Sweet Pea" is a delicate slice of acoustic folk, and like many songs on More Modern Classics has aged well.

The two newer tracks "Flame Out!" and "Brand New Toy" couldn't be more different. "Flame Out!

I was a big fan of PW's solo work through the nineties but for whatever reasons (same problem we all face, so much music so little time) I didn't keep up with much of his stuff after 2000. This box set is a fantastic retrospective of his music over the last fifteen years and includes a great third cd of sessions and live recordings. I highly recommend this for any fans of Paul Weller for who he may have dropped off their radar in the last few years. This box set is a classy proposition as sharply put together as one of PW's suits.
