Today the prospect of the leader of a top-selling British band leaving to embark on a series of genre-stretching musical adventures seems remote. What’s impressive about The Style Council in retrospect is their fearlessness and energy. Though prone to clumsy songwriting and faux-soul interludes, Weller’s new-found freedom is evident on “My Ever Changing Moods”. Meanwhile, the storming “Walls Come Tumbling Down”, the blue mood music of “Changing Of The Guard” and “It’s A Very Deep Sea”, and the proto-house of “Promised Land”, represent some of Weller’s best work.
