Paul Weller's last few albums have been very well received for their more creative and expansive approach, and while I enjoy just about everything the Modfather does, I for one appreciate this album's more focused feel. These 9 cuts find Weller circling back to his more soulful, melodic, pop-oriented roots without feeling tired or overly familiar.

White Sky opens with a lot of energy and rocks about as hard as anything here with the possible exception of the driving 70s classic rock Long Time. Saturn's Pattern is an ebullient pop song as fun & joyful as anything Weller has done in recent memory. Many of the cuts, such as Going My Way, Pick It Up, Phoenix, and These City Streets mine Weller's masterful, groovy love for 70s funk and R&B. This is something I've missed in his recent albums. I'm Where I Should Be is a shimmering 60s homage with beautiful harmonies. Across the board this is as consistent a set as Weller has come up with in quite awhile.

The album might not be perfect, but any complaints are minor niggles. There are a few too many spacey sound effects thrown in for atmosphere, and a couple of tracks that might stretch out a little longer than they need to. In keeping with most of Weller's later career work, lyrics seems to take a backseat to the timbre and atmosphere of the songs. Nevertheless, the strengths far outweigh any perceived weaknesses.

Saturn's Pattern may not win Weller any new followers (I've given up wondering at the criminal negligence of Weller as an artist here in the US), but it amply reminds us just how talented an artist he is. This set is assured, energetic, and fresh and it reminds us what we've always loved about Weller in his solo years while keeping things new and forward moving.

UK rocker Paul Weller has been on a creative streak since 2005's "22 Dreams" and his latest "Saturns Pattern" continues that unbroken chain.

Concise at 9 tracks, he still displays the musical chameleon in him with the blistering Jack White-esque blues rocker "White Sky" opening the album, followed by the more subdued but still rocking title track which sounds like a jam fest with fleeting horns, squealing guitars, prancing piano, and some skat singing.

The enchanting "Going My Way" is a jaunty song with lovely piano flourishes, tempo shifts, Beach Boys-style harmonies, and tender vocals from Weller ("Floating on the sound around, flying through the universe" he croons). "Long Time" is another blistering rocker with buzzing guitars and squiggly effects. The organ-laced "Pick It Up" is set to a moody groove with Weller urging "Pick it up, pick up the pieces".

"I'm Where I should Be" has a country feel with quivery effects and sunny harmonies. The breezy "Phoenix" is spacey soul with intricately textured harmonies with an urgent coda, while "In The Car..." starts off with a jazzy piano riff before mutating into a stomping glam rocker.

Closing is the epic "These City Streets", a lengthy psychedelic jazzy soulful rocker with gorgeous harmonies and beautifully weathered vocals from Weller, the album highlight!

At 56, yet not sounding or looking it, he's still showing the young uns how it's done.

Wow, what a return to form. I've loved all of Paul Weller's group projects (The Jam, Style Council) but missed the melodies and youthful energy on his solo works. Finally, a solo release that highlights why he's been around for so many years and why he's so talented. It's a kaleidoscope of sound on this release. It definitely has hints of both the The Jam and Style Council. Some of his best work yet!

This album is a wonderful journey that echo various styles and sounds Weller has put to 2" tape or ProTools. The first track, 'White Sky' is a cacophonous continuation of the sound from 'Sonik Kicks'. It's more stripped down and raw, and is actually very powerful. It's a bit cheeky to start with this, as the rest of the album is quite different - sonically.

The production is top notch - which leads me to 'Saturns Pattern', the second (and title) track. I recommend listening to it on headphones. There's a lot going on musically, yet there's so much space. Some of the vocal harmonies are reminiscent of early Who tracks. The third track, 'Going My Way' starts intimately with Weller and a piano riff. The song takes you into different directions and ends with a brilliant refrain. A very soulful track with a hint of lament. Definitely has some Northern Soul influence here.

'Long Time' is a two-chord barn burner. Just straight ahead garage rock reminiscent of the Stooges. It's short (2:02), to the point and raw. 'Pick It Up' starts going into a funky, psychedelic direction. It reminds me of 'That Spiritual Feeling'. In a way, it's also proggy. The structure is unconventional - and this is a good thing - while the underlying bass and drums stay constant - the entire feel of the song changes over time. Nicely done.

'I'm Where I Should Be' is probably my favorite track on the album. It's sort of a statement from Weller. He's where he should be in life. This is the musical geek in me speaking, but the snare and hi hat sound remind me of 'A Solid Bond In Your Heart'. 'Phoenix' exudes more soul and a pop sentiment. It's a head bopper for sure.

'In The Car' forays into a Sgt Pepper-esque, bluesy foot stomper.
