it's new to me

paul weller
22 dreams


after a semi-promising start, this settles in a hazy (lazy) MOR mush (i'm not gonna say "dad rock", but I'm gonna think it-- maybe "dad with grown kids rock"). i'll be honest, i think the friggin Jam are wildly overrated (save a few classic singles). i do remember diggin the first couple Style Council records. i'd never listened to a paul weller solo album before ...

[sigh] Yeah, keep encouraging him...

Anyway, the Weller self-titled album is great; Wildwood is above average. Everything else may have a couple of good songs but except for the above I recommend proceeding with caution.
