The Style Council is a band that I do know about, except in name. I have never heard of their album Café Bleu. I do know of vocalist Paul Weller from his band The Jam. I read this is classified as sophisti-pop and blue-eyed soul, which I think Daryl Hall & John Oates are considered too. I find it strange that they are not on this list at all. Surely, one of their albums has to be great. 1001 Albums… is a terrible book. Do not buy it.
Oh wow. I really expected to like this at least a little, but I absolutely hated it. The music is not always horrible, but the vocals and lyrics were painful. Skip it, unless you really love Paul Weller. 3/10.
