Not A-Paul-ing


WELLER Weller Weller huh? I'll tell you more.
The Modfather Paul Weller's new album Wake Up The Nation shows the former Jam man isn't resting on his considerable laurels.
With a slightly warped production throughout there's trad Weller on No Tears No Cry, Beatles-esque stomps like Trees, more than a hint of Curtis Mayfield on Aim High, even an instrumental freak-out called Whatever Next.
Weller is clearly determined to progress his sound.
The problem is, with such a jigsaw of ideas here, some places it fits better than others.
