The Jam continued to grow sonically, expanding out from their core trio on this LP culled from an aborted rock opera about friends confronting the loss of youthful enthusiasm and idealism ("Burning Sky," "Thick as Thieves," "Wasteland"). Elsewhere, excoriating cuts like "Private Hell" and "Saturday's Kids" paint beautifully bleak portraits of both ends of the generation gap while "Eton Rifles" and "Little Boy Soldier" are political rock epics. Weller's reputation as a songwriter was assured, but bassist Bruce Foxton's "Smithers-Jones" is a highlight and fan-favorite.
