The Gift is the sixth and final studio album by English new wave/mod revival band the Jam. It was originally released on 12 March 1982 by Polydor as the follow-up to the Jam's critically and commercially successful 1980 album Sound Affects. The songs were largely recorded during 1981 to 1982, assisted by Peter Wilson, and is generally regarded as the culmination of the smoother, more adult-oriented sound of the band's later work

With The Gift, however, Paul Weller seems to have become completely absorbed in it, and more specifically, in Stax-style soul with more than a hint of psychedelia à la "Psychedelic Shack. An uneven album marked by overindulgences like the instrumental "Circus" and unnecessarily long songs, The Gift still has no shortage of terrific songs, like the simply sublime "Ghost," "Town Called Malice" (the hit), and the funk workout of "Precious. Weller can obviously do "soulful" - his voice has never sounded better - but unfortunately, The.

As Universal re-release 'The Gift', LTW takes a look at the Jam's experimental and esoteric final L. Fergal Kinney takes a look at why â?˜The Giftâ?™ deserves its place in the hall of fame as much as any Jam album and why this experimental, esoteric record is still every bit as relevant thirty years on. Â. By 1982, British guitar music found itself at a strange crossroads. It was clear by 1982 that the same energy that ignited punk had to be harnessed to prevent punkâ?™s contemporaries going the way of their dinosaur predecessors.
