3.0 out of 5 stars Come in number six your time is up...., 25 Aug. 2006
This review is from: Illumination (Audio CD)
So the man delivers his best single since the days of The Style Council in "It's Written In The Stars."

He matches it with "Leafy Mysteries" and delivers on the charming "Now The Night Is Here." Collaborating with Simon Dine of Noonday Underground adds a charm to these excellent tunes which makes for one of the freshest sounds Weller has made since 1992's debut solo effort.

The guests here, however, are not so welcome. Kelly Jones rasping through the chugging "Call Me No 5" adds the stodge factor.

"Who Brings Joy" should have been left in the studio and "Spring (At Last)" is directionless and forgettable.

"Standing Out..." is very likeable and the closer "Illumination" is both haunting and charming, one of the best album closers for Mr Weller of the solo years.

So the verdict then... once again, some a handful of excellent tunes - maybe one classic - but this is not THE Weller solo album some of us are still hanging on for. The man's got it in him. It's just a matter of time.
