I have most of the who albums, i may be a who fanatic and this may not be the most neutrual review. But i must say to review this album as a bad is very wrong. It is not anything like th other albums but isn't that what we like about the who which album sounds like the other? Tell me. This album is different and i never refuse to hear it again and again!

The Eagles check out of Hotel California and set off across the Mojave Desert with a case of Tequila and upon their return they have created a very listenable album. Pete (I'm a Genius) Townshend nips into the khazi and after a couple of millennium produces a master class in musical flatulence accompanied by a bad smell. The studio album doesn't just stink, it reeks! The pathetic remnants, all that's left of The Who, has scaled the depths of mediocrity. Pete's singing is thin, weedy and monotonous, but then so are the songs and even Roger Daltrey has trouble with this material. At one stage they draft in a singer with a tracheotomy to do the honours! So why buy it? Because there's also a bonus disc and that is worth the entry price! Just listen to Daltrey open up and belt out 'The Seeker' and you know you're in for a rock 'n' roll treat. Even 'Mike Post Theme' sounds great, which is more than it does on the first disc. Zak Starkey drums like a demon and Roger Daltrey sings like an angel, ok he forgets the words at one point and if you listen on headphones you'll hear a couple of idiots having a meaningful conversation in the background of a couple of songs but never mind. Even Pete Townshend has got to grips with what he's good at and plays some real guitar. What's missing? The wonderful John Entwhistle's riveting bass but even so the live cuts make up for the dreadful first half. So two stars it is, both for the live tracks and absolutely none for the studio album, however it has got a nice bright design that makes it ideal for use as a coaster.

I must admit I was disappointed in this, the first Who studio album in 25 years. As much as I like Pete and Roger's work, this really doesn't seem like a proper Who album. John Entwistle's passing has left a chasum sized gap in their sound, which even Pino Pallidino can't begin to fill.
I guess the lack of urgency in the material is a result of playing too many greatest hits tours. In short, they've forgotten how to make a Who album as both Pete and Roger have produced far superior solo albums over the last 20 years.
