  • Named after a street in Weller's home-town of Woking in Surrey, this album was greeted with universal approval by critics and fans. The brilliant Peter Blake collage throughout the package portrays much greater nostalgia than is contained in the lyrics. The family snapshots and the Green Line picture serve only to fool the listener. The title track is clearly about the terraced houses that have now given way to 90s starter apartments, but the more personal content of tracks such as 'You Do Something To Me' is where Weller truly bares his soul. It would strongly appear that before recording this album, Weller listened to many Traffic albums.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (7/13-7/27/95, pp.109-110) - 3 Stars - Good - "...a singer/songwriter album recorded live in the studio, and...seems powered by the painful self-consciousness of a person whose exterior bid for success rubs against his interior battle to meet his own moral standards....Weller's work supplies the connecting link between several generations of British rock and soul."

Entertainment Weekly (7/21/95, p.64) - "...rocks harder than its predecessor, while retaining its solid songwriting and surefooted '70s-style funk." - Rating: A-

Q (2/96, p.63) - Included in Q's 50 Best Albums of 1995 - "...blending its obvious but welcome retro influences with the hard-won maturity of a songwriter in his prime..."

Uncut (p.120) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[I]t's the warmth of STANLEY ROAD itself which ultimately merits this lavish repackaging and ensures it a high-ranking place in the Weller canon."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.55) - Ranked #86 in Mojo's "100 Modern Classics" -- "More affecting than anything he's ever done. Like The Style Council never happened."

NME (Magazine) (12/23-30/95, pp.22-23) - Ranked #25 in NME's 'Top 50 Albums Of The Year' for 1995 - "...his most honest, heartfelt and mature album to date....He rocks like Lennon in a cello factory..."
