Paul Weller/Jam Dominate British Charts
Paul Weller, a British music icon for his work in The Jam, The Style Council and as a solo artist, is all over the British album charts this week. A repackaging of The Jam's greatest hits album Snap debuts at #10, his solo greatest hits (modestly called Modern Classics)debuts at #32 and his most recent album As Is Now comes back in at #39. Certainly everyone should own The Jam's Snap so jump on this remastered edition when it comes to the US. New phenoms Arctic Monkeys remain squarely at #1. On the singles chart, the first Pop Idol winner Will Young proves Kelly Clarkson isn't the only one to have a proper career: his latest single "All Time Love" jumps to #7.
