I've been a fan of Paul Weller for years and this is a particular favorite of mine,not only has he inspired a lot of bands today,this is the start of his best material,naturally with outstanding,energetic performances round uk venues. A musical and songwriting genius, a totally cool album.

Paul Wellers first solo album was a fantastic return to form after what appeared to be the end of the line for the Modfather. a mixture of soul and the birth of what became known as 'britpop' also an element of acid jazz makes this probably the best of his work .

I love this album, personally it is one of my favourite paul weller albums. with the sweeping background vocals and Paul and his band creating a summery feel uplifting album. I usually play this the whole way through without wanting to skip a track!
I would recommended this album to anyone no matter what musical taste as it is a classic.

I don't know Paul Weller personally but I have noticed that he is a man rarely prone to not knowing exactly what he wants.

It seems that once he has subscribed to a particular idea, the idea becomes an obsession at the cost of virtually everything else. There was once a time (quite a long period of time, actually) when he obsessively hated the idea of `rock music' and steadfastly refused to appear on stage without a full orchestra of keyboard, string, wind and percussion musicians. This idea probably took hold some time in the period between the recording of "Sound Affects" and The Jam's last studio album, "The Gift". It ultimately led to the disintegration of the band at the height of their popularity, for which some people, music critics and fans alike, have never truly forgiven him. (Paul Weller famously quit citing his frustration at the limitations of the guitar-bass-drums format - how ironic is that?).

It also led to five albums (one of which his record company refused to release) featuring a variety of musical styles ranging from Britfunk to northern soul to modern jazz, French ballads to classical music, hip hop to garage house and just about anything in between - just so long as it wasn't `rock music'. You can take your pick from any of those five albums recorded between 1983 and 1989 (or any of The Jam's from 1978 to 1982, post-"The Modern World") and discover plenty of truly great music.

Later on, Paul Weller had another great idea. He fell in love with his guitar again and became a rock musician - the earthy, analogue type that might wear a Marshall Amps T-shirt and reject the kind of `namby-pamby' ideas he had been playing around with in the preceding decade. The instrumentalists were sacked and the guitars were turned up.

This is the connoisseurs Weller album. This is his best. Wildwood and Stanley Road are great, but this is his best. I think Weller sounds most comfortable when the songs are lighter. Revelling in his first love.. soul music. Even in the Jam the records improved when there was more of a groove (hear Sound affects, The Gift). To look deeper, listen to the production on this album and to the same extent Wildwood compared to the clunky, stodgy rock of his later albums. Paul Weller is a great singer..honest. and it's audible more here than any other solo effort. A still young artist revelling in his new found freedom, this is Weller full of enthusiasm and sounding fresh and once again a vital force.

In the 90's, critics revelled in calling this the 'readily ignored' solo album, given that this was the start of one of the greatest comebacks of all time on the British music scene, that seems to have been a misjudgement and then some. Having disbanded The Jam at just the right time, then run The Style Council into the ground, Weller had gone to ground, and gone back to basics, writing songs top to bottom on piano and guitar. He went back to playing live, playing around with covers and playing around with new ideas. This is Weller's great transitional album, it really is Weller as you'd not heard him before, and how you'd never quite hear him again.

The self titled solo debut takes, in soul, acid jazz, r and b, funk and blends them into a technicolour summery world of it's own. The layered production by Brendan Lynch, mature playing from Weller himself, Jacko Peake's omnipresent flute and sax and of course, Steve White's amazing drumming all combine to make an effect that is really like nothing else.

Uh Huh Oh Yeah is a strong, funky opener, based around a strong hofner bass line, jangly guitar lines, powerful drumming, with a determined lyric about finding one's own self belief.

I Didn't Mean To Hurt You, one of the more strightforward sounding tracks on the disc which highlights Weller's skill as a bass player, as well as what would become the recurring Weller lyrical theme of regret towards a loved one.

Bull Rush takes us back to Weller's lowest period aiming to get back to the very top. Psychedelia filled with mellotron and real flutes, and a mine of keyboards over a sub Who accoustic pattern, which wipes out at the end in a blur of phasing and samples. Sublime.
