Amoeba Review

Tiffany Anders 08/17/2010

The Jam’s spectacular debut put them on the same map as bands like The Clash and The Buzzcocks. Yet while this album is more punk than their later material, it gives a strong nod to 1960’s American R&B and the British mod style of the same era. The group and its primary song writer, Paul Weller, became known for this sound, and on this album it’s particularly apparent on tracks like “Non-Stop Dancing” and “Takin’ My Love.” This aspect alone made the group fresh and exciting, and coupled with their exceptional musicianship and songwriting (which was not particularly in vogue at the time), you have the makings of a groundbreaking band. In fact, The Jam would go on to create a whole new genre of punk/ska, good examples of which can be heard on tracks like “In The City” and “I Got By In Time.”
