As their albums progressed, Weller began moving the band further away from straight punk and into more R&B-flavored territory. Here are the ultimate fruits of that transformation on their final album 'The Gift' from 1982. along with the influence of motown ('Town Called Malice'), this album also includes tasteful nods to disco ('Precious'), along with a more mod/punk call to their ealier days ('Just Who Is the 5 O'Clock Hero'), an interesting instrumental track ('Circus') and catchy numbers like 'Happy Together' and 'Ghosts'.
