by Paul Weller
Released: Jul 2008
Label: Yep Roc Records
Paul Weller celebrated his 50th birthday by getting a bunch of friends (including Blur's Graham Coxon, Robert Wyatt, Noel Gallagher and Noonday Underground's Simon Dine) to come out to his country studio and record this expansive set. Weller's songwriting and never-stronger vocals deftly handle British folk, mod rock, R&B rave-ups, Stones burners, soul ballads, sea shanties and buzzing acid-trippers. The album's held together by a bright nature vibe and tunes such as "Cold Moments," "Invisible" and "Empty Ring" rank among the best in a career that stretches across four decades.
