Under rated greatness!

"I don't know why everyone (including the band themselves) consider this the Jam's weakest LP. I think it's their second best effort (right after the masterpiece "Setting Sons"). The songs are more focaced and melodic than on "In the City". Plus, "Modern World" rocks out a lot more than "All Mod Cons" (which is also a great album). True, at the time, this LP wasn't too well received- it was recorded and released only MONTHS after their debut. It was thought to suffer from "second album shortage"- a common problem among late 70s punk bands. (The same was said for the follow ups of the Damned, the Dead Boys and Slaughter & the Dogs- all great albums today.) Even if you're not a hardcore Jam fan give "Modern World" a chance... right after "SEtting Sons"!"
