article imageReview: Paul Weller triumphs on new studio album 'True Meanings' Special

By Markos Papadatos     Sep 15, 2018 in Music
On September 14, British singer-songwriter Paul Weller released his new studio "True Meanings" via Parlophone and Warner Bros. Records.
This marks the 26th career album of his career. It is an acoustic CD with great orchestration. Noel Gallagher also makes a special guest appearance on this album.
It opens with "The Soul Searchers," with Rod Argent of the Zombies playing Hammond Organ, and it is followed by "Glide," coupled by soaring harmonies, and the soothing "Mayfly." Other standout songs include "Gravity," "Wishing Well," "What Would He Say?" and the heartfelt "Bowie."
After the crisp and vivid "Movin On," it closes with "May Love Travel With You" and on a fitting note with "White Horses."
True Meanings is available on all digital retailers including iTunes and on Amazon.
This CD was produced by Weller, with the exception of "The Soul Searchers," which was co-produced by Weller and Conor O'Brien and "Movin On" was co-produced with White Label. True Meanings was engineered and recorded by Charles Rees, and it was subsequently mixed by Jan Stan Kybert.
Most impressive is the fact that it was recorded in a little over three weeks at his own Black Barn Studio, with the orchestration added afterward.
The Verdict
Overall, True Meanings is powerful from a lyrical and sonical standpoint. It has a timeless feel to it that would make it perfect for vinyl. One can really hear Weller's heart on this project. With this collection, Weller turns 60 years old, and proves that he is still at the top of his game, musically, so it is no wonder that he is one of the most awarded musicians in British history. True Meanings garners an A rating.
