It's easy to forget how diverse Paul Weller was in his Style Council days...and how political. 'Our Favourite Shop' targets racism, self serving governments and consumerism and spawned hits such as 'Shout to the Top', 'Walls Come Tumbling Down' and the truly bizzare 'Come to Milton Keynes'. Now re-issued on heavyweight vinyl.

8/10 Damian Customer review, 22nd February 2018

Like all the Style Council records, this is a real mixbag of Weller's influences being tried, tested and adjusted to fit whatever mood he was in at the time. I remember being slightly disappointed the first time I played it, after the near perfection (he should never have indulged the rap experiments???) of Cafe Blue and its almost willful two fingers both to the fawning pop media and the Jam's laddish following, somehow Our Favourite Shop with it's classic soul and more pop orientated jazz stylings felt almost too immediately likeable.

But it's a record I still happily go back to now, over 30 years later. The lyrics to Come To Milton Keynes and A Man of Great Promise are among Weller's best, and when it came to writing love songs he could always deliver, and on Our Favourite Shop we get the beautifully whirling romance of Down in the Seine.
