Customer Review

on 13 January 2013
Really good new material however, this is not a Bruce Foxton solo effort, this is all "From the Jam" effort, and i suspect it is marketed as Bruce Foxton because Paul Weller contributed and plays on three of the songs and it was recorded at Weller's Black barn studios.
Paul Weller has in the past stated that he would never again play or reform with the Jam, so i would suggest it is for this reason it is issued as a Bruce Foxton solo effort.
A shame really, because Russell Hastings deserves a lot more recognition for his contribution to this collection of new tunes.
It suggests to me of the Jam, with a bit of Motown and northern soul feel to it with dare i say, some Style Council influence? and it is really catchy after a couple of listens.
I've seen "From the Jam" live a couple of times and am going again to see them in Warrington, Manchester and Liverpool soon, and can't wait to hear this new collection played live as well as all the old Jam songs again.
Catch them live, you won't be disappointed!
