Product Description & Reviews

''After As Is Now I thought the time was right to make the sort of record Iwanted to make,'' says Paul Weller of the creative process which ledto his striking ninth solo album 22 Dreams. ''Instead of worrying aboutanyone else, I wanted to really push the boat out. I think the result is goingto surprise a few people.'' Surprises have always been part of the artisticvernacular for the man who changed rock forever with The Jam, explored a host of eclectic influences with The Style Council and cemented his position as the patriarch of Brit pop with his legendary solo work. 22 Dreams is the latest chapter in a creative journey spanning 30 years, with material spanning the full breadth of popular music rock to classical, avant garde to funk and spoken word to experimental. In addition to a cast of Weller s frequent collaborators including Steve Cradock and producer Simon Dine, 22 Dreams also features some of the largest beneficiaries of Weller sincalculable musical influence. Noel Gallagher and Gem from Oasis lendtheir talents to Echoes Around the Sun, a writing collaboration betweenWeller and Gallagher. Ex-Blur guitarist Graham Coxon appears on BlackRiver. The spirit of collaboration and an in-the-moment creative approachhave resulted in one of Weller s most spirited works and one that is sure toexpand the artistic canon of the one and only Modfather. It's never too long between Paul "The Modfather" Weller albums. Yet the starlet's prolific solo output over the last decade or so hasn’t often reached the artistic heights of his work with The Jam or The Style Council. While consistent enough, recent projects have been marred by a certain complacency--a tendency to settle for the middle ground instead of the soaring, surprising heights of yesteryear. But on 22 Dreams, some of the old punk fire returns. Buoyed by a stellar Britpop cast including former Blur guitarist Graham Coxon and Oasis members Noel Gallagher and Gem Archer, 22 Dreams is the sound of Weller finally taking an unexpected artistic leap after a series of steady steps. Working across a wide range of genres--rock, funk, soul, free jazz, krautrock, classical music, electronica, even spoken word--Weller presents an hour-plus odyssey full of eccentric surprises and loveable chaos. From the blue-eyed soul of "Have You Made Up Your Mind?" and the eerily brilliant "Echoes Around the Sun" (a Weller/Gallagher collaboration), to experimental offerings such as "111" and acid-folk opener "Light Nights", Weller digs deep into his magician's hat, and pulls out rabbit after rabbit. Some of the more off-the-wall moments--"God" for example--won't be for everyone, but the way everything collides together in a haphazard, devil-may-care manner serves to remind us that we should never write off our beloved veterans--you never know when they’re going to take an unexpected artistic risk.--Danny McKenna
