  • Arrangers: Paul Weller; Brendan Lynch.
  • Arguably Weller's best solo album, and certainly the one where all his influences first congealed into something uniquely his own. WILD WOOD's template would once again seem to be Traffic--Weller's surprisingly soulful vocals most often recall a gruffer version of Steve Winood, and there's even a jazz flute in the concluding "Holy Man" jam. Weller's songs however, are not so easily pigeonholed; an achingly beautiful acoustic ballad like "Country," for example, owes a stylistic debt to no one except its composer.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (10/20/94, p.146) - 3.5 Stars - Good - "...Resolutely pre-punk in its spirit, this album gives retrochic an unexpected twist. With its echoes of vintage Traffic...WILD WOOD could have been recorded in 1970..."

Entertainment Weekly (5/27/94, p.88) - "...pits the gruff-punk charge of the band against the refinement and musicality of his later group, the genre-hopping Style Council....It's a record full of intricate nooks and crannies that begs for exploration...." - Rating: A-

Q (12/99, p.76) - Included in Q Magazine's "90 Best Albums Of The 1990s."

Q (6/00, p.63) - Ranked #77 in Q's "100 Greatest British Albums" - "A warm, raw, uplifting but endlessly self-questioning record....this is the sound of an artist finding a more emotional voice..."

Q (7/00, p.141) - Included in Q's "The Best Male Angst Albums Of All Time"

Q (1/94, p.86) - Included in Q's list of `The 50 Best Albums Of 1993' - "...showcases an artist maturing before our very eyes..."

Q (p.133) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[A] change of direction that both demonstrated a new maturity and ushered in the whole '90s trad-rock boom."

Uncut (p.116) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "WILD WOOD still smells fresh as newly cut pine. 'Country' steals redemption from despair in three minutes..."

Stereo Review (7/94, p.86) - Performance: Extraordinary / Recording: Good - "...Weller has always possessed the uncanny ability to interlace the personal with the political, crafting lyrics that can be read on both levels. But it is as a musical force that Weller looms most impressively on WILD WOOD..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.121) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "WILD WOOD remains Paul Weller's most exquisitely balanced album, with soul stirrings, pastoral folk-rock vibes and stinging REVOLVER guitars dissolving into an elegant and exciting sonic hybrid."

Record Collector (magazine) (pp.98-99) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The album still sounds like a man having fun, which is infectious. 'Hung Up' remains a great lost single..."
