WHO

Their first album of new material in thirteen years due this November.

Daltrey says “I think we’ve made our best album since Quadrophenia in 1973, Pete hasn’t lost it, he’s still a fabulous songwriter, and he’s still got that cutting edge"

Townshend says “This album is almost all new songs written last year, with just two exceptions. There is no theme, no concept, no story, just a set of songs that I (and my brother Simon) wrote to give Roger Daltrey some inspiration, challenges and scope for his newly revived singing voice. Roger and I are both old men now, by any measure, so I’ve tried to stay away from romance, but also from nostalgia if I can. I didn’t want to make anyone feel uncomfortable. Memories are OK, and some of the songs refer to the explosive state of things today. "

However the cover art and the video for the taster track Ball And Chain seem to contradict a lot of what he says.



It can't be any worse than Endless Wire can it?

That's not saying much - is it?

I won't hold my breath though

For fuck's sake!

There is a guy who busks outside Hoxton tube station, and whenever he is there belting out the crappiest songs ever sung by a human being, I wonder if there is any way I can walk back and go another way home from work rather than endure another moment of his horrible talentless dirges.

This latest Who song sounds like one of his outtakes.

Dunno about Quadrophenia, but* it's far and away the best album they've done since Endless Wire



*Compilations and bells and whistles deluxe reissues aside

What with the plagiarism suits and moans about his failed "crackdown" on ticket touts, I knew Ed Sheeran was having a bit of a tough time lately, but I never realised things had gotten quite that bad.
