5.0 out of 5 stars a road weller worth treading, 3 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stanley Road [Deluxe Edition] (Audio CD)
Revisiting this album after such a long time and I have to say , to quote Weller "time passes so quickly",its genius hasnt diminished over the years.A truly outstanding album in every sense of the word.
Stanley Road, Broken Stones, You Do Something To Me, Changing Man, Out Of The Sinking?I could by default just name every track, because simply put, every track is a gem.
This 3 disc set incl.full album and associated single b.sides.
Speaking of which, if my memory hasnt failed me, wasn't Dylans I Shall Be Released not a bonus track on Out Of The Sinking, and if so, why is that omitted?
What I do like however is that the disc 2 pretty much has demo versions of the whole S R album, which enables you to preprogram the track listing and listen to an edgy raw version of the album.
Disc 3 is a dvd which gives a nice insight into the creativity involved in the making of the album.
A nice addition would have been the FULL video promo, s of the singles, but hey, im knit picking.
I would urge anybody deliberating over buying this to STOP DELIBERATING and just buy it.
I did, to replace the original cd release, and in addition to having the original vinyl, which I had forgot I owned until after purchasing this, and a few days later having a loft sort through and finding this and Oasis, s 1st 2 albums up there also.Sheesh kebab!!! I dont regret it one bit, because this album does something to me, somewhere deep inside.Oops another lyric creeping in there methinks.
And yes we know the riff on Changing Man was a direct rip from ELO.
