Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…
5 September 2018
Artist: PAUL WELLER
Album: WILD WOOD – 2nd solo LP
Released: 6 September 1993 – 25 years ago
ALL MUSIC wrote: “Paul Weller deservedly regained his status as the Modfather with his second solo album, Wild Wood. Actually, the album is only tangentially related to mod, since Weller picks up on the classicism of his debut, adding heavy elements of pastoral British folk and Traffic-styled trippiness. Add to that a yearning introspection and a clean production that nevertheless feels a little rustic, even homemade, and the result is his first true masterwork since ending the Jam…” – Score: 4.5/5 – Full review here
TURN UP THE VOLUME! says: Weller’s first big solo achievement.
Soulful, impassioned and entertaining.
