Not sure why I like this so much, but more than one song has stuck with me.

The last truly classic Jam album, sound affects in another tour de force from Weller and co. Full of great songs including, that's entertainment, set the house ablaze, and, pretty green. Start, is a good track but how on earth Weller didn't get sued for it's similarity to a Beatles song is simply unbelievable. A great album then, full of energy and melody, as you would expect from The Jam.

This is an undeniably catchy album that manages to make absolutely no impression on me. All the songs have great beats but they seem to be lacking in some way. It reminds me of Gang of Four or Soft Boys, but without the piercing guitars or biting lyrics that both of those bands brought to the table. Additionally, some of these songs seem pretty half-baked and pad out their running times by repeating the same parts over and over again. It's an album I don't want to turn off but one I can't remember anything from now even though I listened to it about 10 minutes ago.

The Jam's best album, a document to the incredible creative and popular peak they were riding at the time, which absolutely holds up to this day. There is an omission: the original (U.S.) release included a bonus 7" of the amazing double sided single "Going Underground/Dreams of Children". It would have been nice to see that included on the later CD releases. Docked 1/2 star for what could have been.
