Paul Weller’s tenth solo album hits the shops today – and it’s already built up an impressive head of steam, critically speaking.
Our own Matt Wilkinson gives ‘Wake Up The Nation’ 8 out of 10, proclaiming it “Weller’s most personal record in years, possibly ever”.
David Cavanagh in Uncut awards it four stars, concluding: “[Weller] is now officially on a hot streak.”
One of the few dissenting voices belongs to Dom Gourlay, writing for Drowned In Sound, who calls the album a “bovine test of endurance.”
But what do you think? Have you heard the album yet? If so, what do you make of it?
