TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUM – ‘Setting Sons’ – THE JAM…

Top-notch longplayers from the past

‘Settings Sons’
THE JAM

Released: 16 Nov 1979
Fourth album

ALL MUSIC wrote: “‘Setting Sons’ was originally planned as a concept album about three childhood friends who, upon meeting after some time apart, discover the different directions
in which they’ve grown apart. Only about half of the songs ended up following the concept due to a rushed recording schedule, but where they do, Paul Weller vividly depicts British life, male relationships, and coming to terms with entry into adulthood. Weller’s observations of society are more pointed and pessimistic than ever, but the same time, he’s employed stronger melodies with a slicker production and comparatively fuller arrangements, even using heavy orchestration for a reworked version of Bruce Foxton’s “Smithers-Jones.” Setting Sons often reaches brilliance and stands among the Jam’s best albums”
