The Gift - a Classic Album,
This review is from: The Gift (MP3 Download)
This has been a brilliant album since it was released. My brother had it on vinyl, so I eventually had to get round to replacing it!
Despite (or maybe because of) Weller's need for a change of direction musically, ultimately resulting in the splitting up of the Jam and formation of the Style Council, the horns, funkiness and experimentation with different styles works. Still acerbic wry lyrics (look no further that "Just who is the 5 o'clock hero)this is an often overlooked album from one of the best British bands of all time. Check it out, you won't be disappointed
