Paul Weller - That Dangerous Age (Video)

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

Product Description

PAUL WELLER Stanley Road (1995 UK 12-track CD album including the singles Out Of The Sinking Broken Stones You Do Something To Me and the classic hit The Changingman picture sleeve)

Amazon.co.uk

This album has class and it sees Paul Weller once again firmly in control of every aspect: he wrote all the songs bar a cover of Dr. John's "I Walk on Gilded Splinters"; he co-produced it and, apart from his earthy vocals, he plays guitar, piano, organ and percussion. All the tracks are special, but it's the three hits--"Changingman", "Broken Stones" and the truly wonderful "You Do Something To Me"--that really stand out, as does "Porcelain Gods", which has something of the old Style Council about it. Soulful, the style is underlined by Carleen Anderson's rich backing vocals on five of the tracks. Weller is also joined by some of his other musical chums: Noel Gallagher, Steve Craddock and Steve Winwood. --Carina Trimingham

With Stanley Road Paul Weller has managed to prove to his fans and his critics that he is still an important musician even in his solo days. He hasn't just written 12 good songs, instead, he's written one great album. A factor in any great album is the overall feel that perpetuates each song, making them all feel as though they deserve their place and complimenting the songs that come before and after them.

A mostly guitar driven album, Weller fuses good solos and riffs with his usual effective lyrics, often ending a song with a long instrumental that gently ushers in the next song, which gladly and competently carries the album along. However, there is the occasional song that primarily uses the piano evoking another great feel. Though these songs are quite different from the guitar based ones, they seem to come at just the right points in the album so that, not only are they a nice change of direction, but also they effortlessly fit in. To truly appreciate this fine album start at the beginning and just let it play on to the end. It far outweighs the sum of its parts, and as these parts are so good, you're in for a great journey.

The Changing Man- This was a hit in the UK and is a good indication into how this album will sound. There are some great little examples of guitar work going on here, more will follow throughout the rest of the tracks.

Porcelain Gods- This songs brings the mellow vibe with its gentle electric guitar opening. The highlights are the lyrics; `How disappointed I was to turn out after all, just a porcelain god, that shatters when it falls'.

Walk On Guilded Splinters- Another slow bluesy track that follows on nicely from the previous. Again, the lyrics shine above all in this song.

This is definitely an intense listening CD, but then if you're not into intense listening surely you could buy the flavour of the month CD (e.g Backstreet Boys/S-Club 7). Weller is a musical genius. Depending on your taste you may find yourself skipping a track or two when repeatedly listening to the album but this proves it's diversity.
Porcelain Gods is the substitute title track, it gets raving reviews every time the album is mentioned and I can't disagree. But there are songs on here, namely Out of the Sinking and Whirlpool's End, which can take you to a different level. The music can completely take you over and control your state of mind.
This is an album that will be firmly in your CD collection for decades to come, as opposed to many which you'd be selling on a car boot sale for £0.50 in 5 years time.

The third studio album from Paul Weller, released just prior to that unforgettable swealtering hot summer of 1995, is easily the finest LP of his solo career to date. This album was really the consolidation of styles and influences that had began with the man's eponymous album in 1992 and Wild Wood the following year. After this album, Weller opted for out and out dad-rock, which is a shame because that's now become a label with which Mr Weller has been tagged. Sure, there are retro influences here, but not as direct as 1997's Heavy Soul album. Many fans prefer Wild Wood to this album but, although I would agree that album contains some great songs, it's Stanley Road that does it for me. This album simply oozes with class and superbly written songs. The CD also carries many memories for me as a lot of unwelcome things were happening in my life at the time this was released - some of the songs are inspirational (to say the least) and it was this album more than any other that helped me through not only the hottest but for me personally the most difficult summer I can remember. I could listen to this album over and over again, it's an under-rated classic in my opinion. Great album, great songs, ignore the negative reviews - they just don't appreciate quality songwriting. A fine album that will sit happily in ANY collection.

It's a great CD, especially if your into more mature music than what finds its way into the charts nowadays. It's worth listening to just to appreciate Weller's awesome talent, and although some people find it a little 'intense' or 'heavy' to have on in the background, I find that it's a great CD to drive to etc. I was torn between giving it four or five stars - it's not perfect, but it is a damn good listen. In the end I gave it five because if it encourages more people to listen to music like this, then that can only be a good thing.

Weller fans will love this, but then again, so will almost everyone!

I'm quite hard to please, but I have to say that in a career spanning over 30 years, there's been very little of Weller's work that I've disliked. Admittedly, as a 15 year-old lad, I was sad when The Jam dissolved, but later in life I realised the importance of that move. Likewise, I lost the plot a bit when TSC became completely obsessed with themselves, but apart from that, there have been very few "speed wobbles".

So for me, the stand-out tracks are "broken stones", "thechangingman" and "time passes"....but what an awesome album! Choose your own favourites. Who remembers when he did "The White Room" with Noel Gallagher?

Hands up who wants to be Paolo Hewitt?.....that's a "no" then?...
