AllMusic Review by

After leaving one of punk rock's all-time greatest bands, Paul Weller took things in a very different direction with the Style Council, which led to a wave of groans and moans from Jam loyalists who hung on Weller's every lyric. But steer away from the sneers and jeers and there are more than a few selections that Style Council performed that match those of the Jam. Thankfully, Gold has all of those hits and then some. It's not as concise as the 20th Century Masters edition or even 2002's Cafe Blue collection, which means that casual listeners may find some filler here. But on the flip side of the coin, this could very well be all the Style Council die-hard fans could ever want or need all together on two discs.
