Confessions Of A Pop Group
Released: Jun 1988
Label: Decca International
Confessions contains the best and worst of the Style Council. On one hand, it has some of Paul Weller's greatest songs, including the navel-gazing "It's a Very Deep Sea," the soaring ballad "Changing of the Guard" and the '60s soul-rocking "How She Threw It All Away." On the other hand, it has a numbingly pretentious song-suite about environmental destruction, plenty of electro-funk and a nifty jazz tune about man-secretions going into a sewer. Weller's bilious lyrics on the title track are so filled with disgust for modern society that they foreshadow the start of his nonpolitical solo career.
