Shouldn't we be considering the Jam and Style Council separately?

I wanted to see how people weigh his output in totality, it'd be a nice idea for the Beatles/Solo Beatles too. Plastic Ono Band over Rubber Soul?

ive probably only heard a dozen or so of the solo records so it'd be easier for me :)

Absolutely. The only thing they have in common is Paul.

I bought the first Style Council E.P. and disappointing doesn't even begin to describe my response. I was so off Weller I never bought another thing by him. I still read interviews and articles about him and I could see he had changed and I wasn't interested in the new Weller. So I went on to other things. Nothing lasts forever but the Jam were special. It could never be the Jam II or Jam Jr. or whatever.
