  • Summary: The veteran singer jams through covers of songs by the likes of Neil Young, Bob Dylan, and, er, Sister Sledge.

  1. An album that should appeal to fans of Weller and the original legends alike.
  2. The rest of the album... more than makes up for [a few] misfires. [#8, p.113]
  3. Sincere of intent and, as ever by Weller, stylishly and deftly delivered, "Studio 150" is a pleasant enough listen, which nevertheless will leave die-hard fans hankering for new Weller material.
  4. Some of these songs are familiar, but these arrangements are distinctly Weller's own, and it makes for an effective listen -- maybe not a major effort from the Modfather, but an enjoyable one all the same.

    There's little attempt to get under the skin of these songs, or really bend them into new shapes. [Oct 2004, p.100]
  6. What is surprising is how lacklustre an affair it turns out to be. [Oct 2004, p.128]
  7. What Paul Weller uniquely manages to do to the 12 songs... is to make every one sound exactly like a Paul Weller song. [11 Sep 2004, p.55]
