Setting Sons by The Jam

This got off to a confusing start for me, because the first track, Girl On the Phone, sounds just like I Fought the Law by The Clash… different band, same decade. On the first listen through, I think I got hung up on that fact and felt like all the songs sounded the same. But actually on the second listen through, it was really good, highs and lows, Smithers-Jones stands out as different to the others and quite moving. Then of course Eton Rifles gets a bit shouty towards the end. A good punk-pop ride.
