2.0 out of 5 stars LAZILY OVERATED, 29 April 2007
By 
This review is from: All Mod Cons (Audio CD)
MUST BE GOOD COS IT'S THE JAM INNIT? WELL SORRY, BUT NO, ONE GOOD SONG DOESN'T MAKE A GREAT OR EVEN GOOD ALBUM. ALL THE PEOPLE WHO GIVE THIS ALBUM 4 OR 5 STARS SHOULD HAVE A LONG HARD HONEST THINK ABOUT HOW INSPIRING THIS ALBUM REALLY IS. PERSONALY, LISTENING TO IT NOW 25 YEARS OR SO SINCE I FIRST HEARD IT, I FIND IT DULL AS DITCH WATER. HAS A MORE BANAL SONG THAN "IT'S TOO BAD" (LYRICALLY OR MUSICALLY) EVER BEEN WRITTEN? I DOUBT IT. ENGLISH ROSE MAKES MY TOES CURL. DULL, DULL, DULL.

HBMAN is obviously not a Jam fan.He does not appreciate brilliant music and lyrics.How can he say ITS TOO BAD is banal? Maybe he should go and buy himself a WHAM or BAY CITY ROLLERS album

All Mod ConsWhen I think about it,the lyrics to It's Too Bad don't take a genius to scribe.True as it is,and I can't stand Weller,it's still a good tune,as is the rest of said LP.

Weller has had three sucessfull careers spanning 35 years,and is still on top of his game.Sonik kicks March 2012 chart position 1,three generations cant be wrong,this album derservedly kickstarted the legend that is,stuck to his guns refusing Queens honors nostalgic cash ins calling time when the Jam were at their peak.ENUFF SAID

HBMAN I really believe that you should stop embarrassing yourself publicly by continually posting nonsense reviews on this site and just concentrate on your potty training and learning to write without using crayons. Your comments are those of a sub normal dim wit with the mental dexterity of a baked spud.
