This Is The Modern World

£ 18.99


As is so often the case for overnight successes, the Jam rush-recorded their sophomore effort during a hurried schedule to capitalize on the debut.

'This is the Modern World' can be faulted for borrowed Who licks, pale rewrites of the debut, somewhat cliched sloganeering, and unfinished ideas, but there were still some moments of inspiration, especially in more introspective Weller songs like 'Life from a Window' and 'I Need You (For Someone)' - both songs feature personal sentiments that the debut was clearly missing.

'This is the Modern World' is a flawed album by Jam standards, but it would certainly have received praise had it been released by another band.
