4.0 out of 5 stars Great collection of songs 11 Dec 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I know some of these songs from listening to a college/alternative radio station in the 1980s, such as "Have you ever had it blue?" and "Solid Bond in your Heart." After hearing some of the songs (mostly "My Ever Changing Moods") playing in the grocery store or at the mall, I wanted to hear the others. I found some great songs on this CD, ones that were never heard on the radio in America. The highlights of this CD are "Long Hot Summer" and "Speak Like a Child," which are the best. This is a great CD to put in the car and sing along while driving around. It beats most of what's on the radio today!

4.0 out of 5 stars Some of Mr Weller's finest crafted songs... 25 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
Considered for quite some time to be the awkward & dated part of the Weller back catalogue, even the most hardened fan of the Jam or his post 1990 work has to acknowledge now, that the style council period not only contained some finely crafted songs (he performed 'Shout to the top' on his recent 22 dreams tour) but was in fact an essential part of his growth as a song writer.

Weller could never have written modern classics such as Changing man, Broken stones and Wild Wood without this period of experimentation and reflection with his future wife Dee c. Lee, Future long time collaborator Steve White on drums and Mick Talbot on the keys.

Songs included are Have you ever had it blue, Long hot summer, Wanted, Shout to the top, Speak like a child (the style council debut single), You're the best thing, and the glaringly autobiographical My ever changing moods are all here, and wrapped around them are other Style Council classics which are thankfully mainly from the Style Council's most prolific output between 1983 and 1987.

For the now low cost of purchasing the album, one can almost forgive the inclusion of the plodding watered down house music cover version of Promised Land (presumably included on the basis of chart success) as in the humble opinion of this reviewer this would struggle to qualify as a classic single from the Weller collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars singular adventures of the style council 6 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the other,better version of the best of the style council.if you want to content yourself that what you have are the best songs of this group,then you need the two albums.All this material signalled a landmark change in the musical life of paul weller.Gone were those "angsty" edgy,punching and hard driven numbers of the jam.
He now settled into a more jazzy and soulful sound of stylish musical genre.A progressing maturity in both song and composition,it was a giant stepping stone to him performing purely as a solo artist.

5.0 out of 5 stars quality 2nd singles from weller 11 May 2013
Format:Audio CD
Having grown up with listening to Paul weller (as well as the police,xtc,madness and so on)since I was at high school this is a great collection of his second outing (the first being the jam 1977-1982 who were outstanding)
My only regret is that 'money go round' is the 12 inch version (I much prefered the 12 inch of long hot summer) but beggers can't be choosers
Speak like a child,long hot summer,my ever changing. Moods,your the best thing and shout to the top are Paul wellers better days with the council
Shame there wasn't the council collective single 'soul deep' on this disc.
This really is a class selection of the style council singles with Steve white only 17 when tsc started in 1983 on drums and ex meeting parka man Mr.mick talbot on piano/keyboards and wellers first wife to be Dee c. Lee ( who released the brilliant 'see the day' single.
What id like to see is a doulble cd of the style council to include all the singles best b-sides and album tracks in the tradition of the jams 'snap'
Go and jams greatest hits the style council singles and Paul wellers greatest hits and you won't be disappointed at all.
