4.0 out of 5 stars Sup up your beer and collect your fags..., 27 May 2008
This review is from: Have You Made Up Your Mind/Echoes Round The Sun (Audio CD)
Polish your loafers because Weller's back on form.

The blue-eyed soul cut of "Have You Made Up Your Mind" is breezy and bright and Weller's throaty soulful vocals carry things with class.
So far so safe.

Where things shift from good to very good is the murky, irresistable "Echoes Round The Sun." It sounds strange and vital and re-energised.

A promising double-lead off for a very promising double album.

By the way - "Rise & Fall" is the kind of track that in weaker moments Weller might put on an album or even put out as a single. It's not unpleasant but it's a bit lazy and a bit stodgy and pales in comparison to the other 2 tracks. Forgive him this one, stick it on a pub jukebox and somebody might think it was a throwaway Rod Stewart album track from 1975 albeit with a good band behind him.
