Records, Paul Weller delivered Modern Classics: Greatest Hits, his first compilation of solo material, late in 1998. Modern Classics plays it safe, collecting all of his singles and adding a fine new song, Brand New Start, which may not at first seem live up to its title, but eventually reveals itself to be a weightier ballad variation of the trad rock of Heavy Soul.

After making his name with the Jam-at least in England, where their post-Kinks, Brit-centric lyrics mod appeal and blend of punk and soul sounds made them stars-and then nearly losing it with the Style Council, Paul Weller reemerged in 1992 with a self-titled album. I remember Paul Weller from The Jam back in the early 80s. I think I even have one of their albums in my vinyl collection. For years I've seen him referenced by other musicians etc. but most of the praise I read was from British sources. If you're thinking of getting a Paul Weller album get this one, you won't regret it
