Review of Paul Weller's 'An orchestrated songbook': the tinsel test

With the collaboration of the director and arranger Jules Buckley , the 'Modfather' chooses, without falling into the obvious, 18 songs from all his times (with The Jam, with The Style Council and solo) and has the luxury of interpret them with the support of the Symphony Orchestra of the BBC . The exercise has some unnecessary whim and is missing a greater audacity in the new versions, but both Weller's voice (in splendid form at 63) and the compositions stand the test with solvency.
