This album is a real grower; I was surprised how much I liked it having heard Paul Weller's recent 'Dadrock' excursions. I was a big fan of the Jam & Style Council but his fascination with the late sixties / early seventies left me cold.
Weller puts his own unique spin on the tracks and I'd forgotten just how much I liked his voice.
Highlights are 'Wishing on a star' and ' Thinking of you'. I can't help playing 'Close to you' without think of Alan Partridge singing it in his series though.
The only low point is 'All along the watchtower' which is a bit of a stinker and the U2 version on "Rattle & Hum" is far better.
I was pleasantly surprised . Hope you will be too
