The Jam - Setting Sons album FLAC

The Jam's Setting Sons was originally planned as a concept album about three childhood friends who, upon meeting after some time apart, discover the different directions in which they've grown apart. Only about half of the songs ended up following the concept due to a rushed recording schedule, but where they do, Paul Weller vividly depicts British life, male relationships, and coming to terms with entry into adulthood.

The Jam. Released 1979. X Ambassadors Break Down "JOYFUL". Mr Eazi Breaks Down "Pour Me Water". Alec Benjamin Breaks Down "Let Me Down Slowly". Jesse McCartney Breaks Down "Better With You". The only single from ‘Setting Sons’, ‘Eton Rifles’ was a fairly standard broad-spectrum yell at society from Paul Weller. 510. 12. The Butterfly Collector Lyrics.

However, ‘Setting Sons’ is a great album in album context and quality, and there are no skip-able tracks present at all. The record is mainly a testament to Paul Weller’s growing songwriting confidence, as inspired by his current reading, he aimed for the ‘dreaded’ concept album. Weller’s concept was of three schoolhood friends growing up together, but parting ways as their political views force them apart – one goes hard right-wing, one goes hard left-wing and one remains neutral. The main problem with Weller’s idea lay in his perennial writer’s block, and he hadn’t written enough songs covering the concept to spread across both sides of vinyl.
