WTF, man? Much appreciated No vote for you! And I know almost everything in Johns live rig, what basses he's used, and his expressions at their last show before Keith Moon died. Therefore, I am better than you at everything except reviewing :upset:. I voted for you for your G n R Appetite For Destruction review this 'morn before you even posted in here You should know better then to rile a fellow Who fan, my little bass banging friend This Message Edited On Another very good review.
I've never heard anything from Townshend's solo career, but this sounds like something I'd dig, if you're comparing it favourably to Who albums. After all, you like X and the Who. Good review. I shall check this album out. This is a very good album. Fully deserving of it's given four stars. Really a follow up to Who Are You, as it's the next collection of Townshend songs that was put out. And it is superior to that album on every level.
After that his output became spotty at best as he became more involved in other things, and musical experimentation to some extent. And while his "Best Of" albums are decent enough, for Pete those can be a mixed bag as well.
Originally released on Atco Who mastermind Pete Townshend's strongest solo record was born in a hailstorm of despair, uncertainty, and tribulation. With the once viscerally powerful Who in limbo, the guitarist nearly sunk himself into brandy-drenched oblivion. He emerged with one of his most gripping solo pieces and--perhaps unsurprisingly--the most Who-like album of all his solo work.
Pete plunges into his familiar themes of aging, sexuality, and spiritual decay with fervor, desperation, and commitment. Also of note are Townshend's vocals. Through the entire album, whether on the radio-ready paean to Meher Baba "Let My Love Open the Door," the bracing "Rough Boys," or the sublime "A Little Is Enough," his vocals are hanging on the edge of a cliff, presumably dangling over a certain death.
