Editorial Reviews

The Jam's 1979 masterpiece Setting Sons has been expanded and reissued as a deluxe editions which feature unreleased demos and live tracks.
Setting Sons was originally conceived as a concept album that was never fully developed about old friends reunited after many years to find they had nothing in common anymore. Brimming with brittle white knuckle rock music and muscular tracks boiling over with class hatred and spot on insights into British life, Setting Sons was arguably, the Jam's most thematically ambitious LP. Featuring a harder and grittier sound than its predecessor 'All Mod Cons', Setting Sons was recorded when Paul Weller was only 21, his songwriting showing an amazing level of maturity.

Setting Sons took The Jam's musical template and added a narrative depth and compositional daring which would take their art to a totally new level. The anti-war song Little Boy Soldiers, constructed in three parts, illustrates how the band were moving into a more experimental and ambitious style, whilst retaining the edge for which they were so famous.The album includes the hit single - The Eton Rifles and Bruce Foxton's tour-de-force Smithers-Jones
