While not my favourite style, I can appreciate the art, and think it deserves it's place.
I thought it was a bit Transvision Vamp, and a bit Adam Ant in places, and although the band has got a big following, and respect to them, the album didn't do it for me. I couldn't see the reason why it should be included in the 1001 best, which might be more my failing than theirs.
Interesting. A bit slow for me I thought initially, but it grew on me, and I enjoyed listening to it. When the album had finished I didn’t think that I would be listening to it more than once, but by the evening I was playing it again, and I enjoyed it even more the second time around.
I think it probably sounded better in 1980 than it does in 2022. Some good tracks on it though, and it did take me back to the 80’s. One of the other reviewers suggested that The Jam were a better singles band than an album band, I wouldn’t disagree with that. Paul Weller is a talent isn’t he (not to take anything away from the other members of the band of course).
I really enjoyed it, an older, slightly mellower John Lee Hooker.
I'm not Brazilian and I don't speak the language, so it was a non-starter for me. I did listen to all of it, and the tune was catchy in parts, but it wouldn't have been my choice.
A couple of memorable tracks, but really I think that at the time it was a case of boys with toys, and probably a few too many buttons to press.
A bit too shouty for me
