Review: Sonik Kicks by Paul Weller

Sonik Kicks by Paul WellerI haven’t listened to a lot of Paul Weller, or at least his solo material, but if you enjoyed his work with The Jam or The Style Council then you know what to expect. The dude’s still sharp. “That Dangerous Age” and its doo-wop-py sensibilities make me grin, while “When Your Garden’s Overgrown” and “Be Happy Children” soar lovingly. He’s still not afraid to go slightly off-kilter like he did with the Mercury-nominated Wake Up the Nation – and he knows that whatever he does will not sound out of place. “Kling I Klang”, for example. There’s just a lot of things to hear on the album. A pleasant surprise indeed. | 4/5
