Paul Weller: Fat Pop (Volume 1) review – more earnest than exciting
(Polydor)Recorded largely during last year’s first lockdown, Weller’s 16th solo album is a reined in affairAnybody thinking that 2018’s relatively trad True Meanings marked the end of Paul Weller’s decade of untamed experimentation would have reckoned without last year’s On Sunset, which once again offered up curveballs aplenty.
