The Sound Of The Style Council
Released: Mar 2009
Label: HIP-O (PG)/Fontana
The Style Council were stereotyped as a singles band, but they also excelled at deep album cuts and acoustic B-sides. This two-disc set does a fine job of mixing it all together with only "Waiting" polluting the sea of sonic wonders. "It Just Came to Pieces in My Hands" explains why Weller broke up The Jam, while "Headstart for Happiness" and "Speak Like a Child" show the heady rush of freedom he felt. Exquisite ballads "Changing of the Guard" and "It's a Very Deep Sea" illustrate why their final LP, Confessions of a Pop Group, went from being maligned to being considered ahead of its time.
