iTunes Review

The Who have always overreached. At their peak, it meant the most dramatic and challenging rock n’ roll ever recorded. At lower points, it’s brought a meandering, confused conceptual gestalt to a band that has mostly served as the tough front for singer-songwriter Pete Townshend’s neurotic self-doubts. Townshend’s solo work – and especially his multiple Scoop collections of home demos – provides interesting moments, but it’s his lifelong collaboration with singer Roger Daltrey that sets his compositions ablaze. Endless Wire, the first new Who album in 24 years, features its two surviving members front and center, and while no one will mistake this edition of the Who for the pure young man angst of Live at Leeds or Who’s Next, it does provide fans with a worthy update on their old heroes. As always, Townshend, yes, overreaches, providing too many songs that are meant to flow as connective tissue to an overriding theme rather than as independent vital organs. The immediate attractions are Townshend’s acoustic musings (“You Stand By Me”) being pitted up against Daltrey’s increasingly husky bark (“We Got a Hit“) while keyboard loops threaded throughout recall the days of “Baba O’Riley.”

Customer Reviews

unexpected, I'm in shock

I thought The Who were trading slightly on former glories, it would be easy with their back catolgue. Endless Wire is stunning, well worth the wait when the end result is this compelling. It's like Pete Townsend and Roger Daltrey have really re-discovered what they do best. Sure comparrsions to 'Tommy' and 'Quadropenia' and 'A Quick One' will be drawn but Endless Wire is it's own entity. I'm in shock, I was not expecting to be swept off my feet like this, The Who as my favorite album of 2006, it's looking that way!

Great and Different

Great new album, good, but different, with a few classics and a live CD with it!

The Who

I'm a relative newcomer to this band only possessing a best of album and expecting the usual of an old band going mellow and soft over the maturing years, particularly over such a long break. Am I surprised? Yes. This is a band that somehow has not grown old and mellowed as so many have before them. Gritty, powerful and as in touch with whatever credible music is around at the moment. This deserves to be listened to for more reasons than just being a Who fan. On top of this some of these songs should certainly be accepted on that Best Of album. Most importantly it sounds like The Who. A big achievement.

Few rock & roll bands were riddled with as many contradictions as the Who. All four members had wildly different personalities, as their notorious live performances demonstrated: Keith Moon fell over his drum kit while Pete Townshend leaped into the air with his guitar, spinning his right hand in exaggerated windmills. Vocalist Roger Daltrey prowled the stage as bassist John Entwistle stood silent, the eye of the hurricane. They clashed frequently, but these frictions resulted in a decade's worth...
