Patchy - but containing the very best of the Jam,
This review is from: The Gift (Audio CD)
A lot of Jam fans haven't really listened to this album. Shame really - people always pick out the singles as the highlights (Malice, Carnation, etc) but this album has a track that is, for me, the quintessential Jam track - it distils the best of their power-pop arrangements with the best of Weller's lyrics: It's called 'Happy Together'. Sing it in the bath a few times, and you'll see. Especially the lines ..."I never let my feelings fool you...." and later the "...thought I was an angel with no wings". Sing it and hear the 'lift' that the best songs on Sound Effects or All Mod Cons gave you.
Nothing captures the essence of seeing the Jam quite as much as Happy Together. Worth the purchase on its own.

"Thought that I was a devil...but I'm an angel waiting for my wings...' *cough* Excellent song; excellent album...best band ever. Period.
