Best thing the Jam ever did, possibly Weller's peak so far as well.
A wonderful, confident album full of imagination, class and style.
Intelligent well-written songs played with fire and skill. "Monday" is wistful and charming ; "Man On The Corner Shop" melodic and infectious ; "Set The House Ablaze" sounds corrosive to this day and "Dream Time" is near-perfect.
Don't get bogged down in definitions of punk ; this is a great album by a band at the peak of their powers.
