5.0 out of 5 stars BACK IN THE FIRE, 23 Mar 2012
This review is from: Sonik Kicks (Audio CD)
Weller's recent output has not been to every fans taste but if like me you are enjoying the musical journey so far this new set of soundscapes,straight pop and psychodelic tub thumping should fill your every want. The journey into experimentation started with 22 dreams which was a sprawling untamed mass of brilliant half baked ideas which took Weller into Bowie, Krautrock and further pastoral experience.The album was also tinged by the sad loss of his father, Wake up the nation presented more short (too short) soundscapes and straight thumping punk glam. This new set is more sure footed he seems more at ease with his musical drifting. He could have sat around for years making as is now albums and churning out beatles inspired riffs so it exciting to listen to a big star stretching his listeners , its been done before by the likes of Bowie (who is a major influence) but Weller is in his mid 50's and his mojo is still working. Buy it.
