Setting Sons is a 1979 album by British band The Jam, their fourth since their debut in 1977. It reached No. 4 in the UK Albums Chart, continuing the commercial (and critical) favour that had begun with their previous album All Mod Cons.

The Jam's Setting Sons was originally planned as a concept album about three childhood friends who, upon meeting after some time apart, discover the different directions in which they've grown apart. Only about half of the songs ended up following the concept due to a rushed recording schedule, but where they do, Paul Weller vividly depicts British life, male relationships, and coming to terms with entry into adulthood.

However, ‘Setting Sons’ is a great album in album context and quality, and there are no skip-able tracks present at all. The record is mainly a testament to Paul Weller’s growing songwriting confidence, as inspired by his current reading, he aimed for the ‘dreaded’ concept album. Weller’s concept was of three schoolhood friends growing up together, but parting ways as their political views force them apart – one goes hard right-wing, one goes hard left-wing and one remains neutral. The main problem with Weller’s idea lay in his perennial writer’s block, and he hadn’t written enough songs covering the concept to spread across both sides of vinyl.
