The Who's New Single

Postby bobzilla77 » 06 Oct 2019, 00:45



I quite like it. Seems like a better production than they have had since the 70s. Some nice acerbic Townshend lyrics and Who like intervals. For once it sounds not too labored, spontaneous.

Let's hear the whole album.

All this music will fade
Just like the edge of a blade

I really desperately want to hate this but I'm tapping along with it quite happily.

I agree. It's the best Who song I've heard in a long time.

I love the album cover too: very Stanley Road.

How about:

All this music will fade, like every note that I made.
All this music will fade, no more the endless parade.

I suppose it has more of a finality than:

But the poison's derange
The music must change.

I'm pleasantly shocked that it's not absolutely terrible!

I don't care, I know you're going to hate this song

Glad to be of service!
