Jam - In the City Click here to see this CD at!

By David Cantwell

Funneling the punk Spirit of '77 through the grooves of old Mod and Motown records, Jam frontman Paul Weller created a sound and vision that took Britain by storm but never made much noise in the USA. That's a shame because at the band's best, as on this album's furious, Who-meets-The-Pistols title track, The Jam played nothing less than great rock and roll. Their explosive cover of "Slow Down" destroys The Beatles', and "Non-stop Dancing," which sounds like a cover of an old R&B hit but is actually a Weller original, has a charm and desperate energy that more than makes up for its derivative qualities.
