Paul Weller's career appears to go in cycles. The Jam - great. The Style Council - not so great. Early and mid solo career - great. Later solo career - not so great.
By the sounds of Come On/Let's Go, Weller appears to have entered one of those periodic upturns. A furiously strummed acoustic guitar opens the song, reminiscent of The Jam's Going Underground, before Weller's vocals kick in, sounding urgent and angry - he's a re-energised figure, especially as he tears into the "dance you little rockers, dance like you've got no choice" line.
It's the sort of song that Weller does best - driving, passionate and, even after over 20 years, vital. It's a lesson for every critic out there - never write off Paul Weller, as the chances are that he'll come back with something as blisteringly good as this.
