Speaking of rubbish album covers Weller looks like Quentin Crisp on his latest.

I've heard one song and it was horrible crooning shite. His solo career has mostly been pretty crap.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

Fair to say the other tracks are all ‘crooning’.

I'd always thought the best of Paul's solo career would make a pretty good compilation, then I started looking at his output. 14 solo albums, including one of covers, over almost three decades. 6 live albums - milking that a bit, and a bit more if you include the live one that was part of the 2cd 'Modern Classics' set, and 2cd 'At The Beeb'. 1 soundtrack - that surprised me, never heard of it and no intention of finding out unless someone convinces me it's some sort of Holy Grail.
But here's the worst part. 5 compilation albums, including a 3cd set and a 4cd set which has Jam and Style Council too.
I stand by my belief that he's worth a pretty good compilation, but he hasn't half taken the piss with a pretty meagre and piss-poor output since 1990.

He was live from his home studio on Radio 2 yesterday and it was like listening to Val Doonican. "Has My Fire Really Gone Out?" Weller once asked. Yes mate, it has.

More Jam compilations than you can mention. His past gets regurgitated at an alarming rate. Paul has said he can't afford to stop touring/releasing due to the amount of children he now has (7). That soundtrack is no holy grail but it sure is different it's mostly experimental instrumental tracks. Just 2 tracks out of the 7 sound like Paul Weller solo album fare. The lead off track is 21 mins 30 secs long.

Weller has had some great ballads along the way but they usually sound better when hidden amongst a typical Weller album. English Rose, Shadow of the Sun and Long Long Road of his last album.
But I can’t defend a whole album of it.
