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

2.0 out of 5 stars Here's Some Stodge That Got Away 22 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD
Paul Weller has at times been fascinating, inspirational and incisive. Even recently he has put out some very good singles remeniscent of the fire and skill of The Jam.

"Wild Blue Yonder" as a title is rather evocative. Sadly most of the song is a chugger which trudges (can you chug and trudge at the same time?) along not so much causing offense as not really causing anything at all. The bridge is all self-doubting and charming and almost raises this song out of its stodge. But sadly not quite.

The additional track on here - "Small Personal Fortune" - co-written with Steve Cradock is sub-standard. When you think Mr Weller put such gems as "Fly On The Wall" on a B-side, things have slipped. This is lightweight inconsequential folk-rock that would even look poor as an Ocean Colour Scene album track.

Come on, sunbeam, raise your game....

5.0 out of 5 stars different but still Weller 19 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
Well the wild blue yonder is about to be released and all hardcore weller fans and non fans alike should buy it, this song reflects music from the latter half of his long standing career and this one really spices it up a bit, the electro acoustic guitar throughout but what really stands out to me on this record is the organ it gives such a great almost eery sound. This record shows that MR Paul Weller is definetly not out of tricks quite yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Motor City Review 2 Dec 2006
By Michael L. Schiller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying that any new music by Paul Weller is always welcome. However the price is a little much for 2 new songs. Now let's talk about the music.

Wild Blue Yonder is very good song. It's a mid-tempo song that's catchy. It could have fit nicely on the As Is Now CD.

Small Personal Fortune is also a very good mid-tempo song. It reminds me a little of the Jam so it's a bit of a change from Wild Blue Yonder.

The Start of Forever (acoustic version) is an ok take on this song. I love the original version of this song from As Is Now. However this mix doesn't really shed any new light on the song. When I hear "acoustic" I expect a stripped down version of the song. This version has an acoustic guitar added but it is very polished with string sections, horns, keyboards & dubbed in harmony vocals. That's not to say it's bad because it's very good. I just don't consider this to be an "acoustic" version. If it was titled as an alternative version it would more accurately describe what your purchasing.

All in all if your a big Paul Weller fan, like me, you'll find this a pleasant addition to your collection. If your new to Paul I would recommend a full length CD such as Wildwood or As Is Now.

I hear this is the first in a series of single only releases. It would have been nicer to release them all on one CD or EP rather than make fans search for a handful of import singles at $10 each. But this is not the first, or last time, an artist has done this to their fans. It is almost becoming common place in today's marketplace.
