What do you guys think of this? Got it last week, seems to be in the low Top 10 here in the UK...think it is a very good album, much more like a Townshend solo release than a bona fide Who album though.

Hi James!

I think the album is pretty good! I'm not that impressed with the first two songs and I was a bit irritated by the voice in which Pete Townshend sings "In The Ether" but it's pretty good on the whole.

Although I like most acoustic numbers on here I prefer the more typical The Who songs with complete band arrangements like "Black Widow's Eyes", "It's Not Enough" or "Mirror Door".

The mini opera on the second half is really good; I like it a bit better than the first half although some songs are just too short. "Sound Round", "Pick Up The Peace" or "Endless Wire" (a favorite of mine on the album) could have been developed further - as they are they are good but not really complete songs.

I would rate it 7 out of 10 stars.

Yes, I'd have to agree with your mini-review. 'Black Widow's Eyes' is probably my favourite track on the album.

I love it, I hope there won't be another gap of 24yrs before they do another album. 'It's Not Enough' is my favorite track.
