Review by John Noyd
March 2012

Ever the adventurer, the man who helmed prickly British hit-makers The Jam only to go soft and soulful with The Style Council before exploring a solo career that honed hearty chamber-folk introspection alongside fist-shaking electric blues doesn’t slow down on his eleventh solo disc. Indeed, “Sonik Kicks.” is a clobbering culmination of Weller’s stylistic changes. Rustic cuts evaporate under singing wisdom dipped in daydream fevers and level-headed confidence, Weller caresses playful excesses, classical sentiments and crackling passions into throaty poems of pub-crawling philosophy, launching knob-twiddling space-rock from lonesome acoustic movements before fading into writhing reggae rambles. Fired up and limber, micro-experiments lay scattered in cosmic after-thoughts as, “Kicks,” seamlessly shift from pre-millennial jams to post-modern holidays; beautifully boisterous, quietly mystical, happily recreational and infectiously upbeat.
